Who'd-a-thunk it. Gun show in Longview TX, this walks in:




FN Browning High-Power, Medallion Grade, 1967, 7mm Rem Mag. Mint condition, long extractor, absolutely no trace of salt wood. Had to own it.

Also:


Colt Official Police .38 Special, 1957 gun, mint/unfired in box with paperwork.

This has been an expensive show for me!

The same guy has a near-mint, all original, commercial 1903 Mannlicher Schoenauer, a mint German Mark V and a number of boxed High Standard pistols. Might have a shot at those this week...
