Unhappy Messed up at a gun show today

At the palmetto FL show today a vender had a pro CDP ultra for $699 new in box but with a lot chips on the frame where the Kim pro paint had come off, I pass at first but returned to get it, but someone else got there first.

Ouch, I feel your pain, if all that was wrong with it was a couple of chips in the KimPro finish then you missed a great deal.

Gotta put them big bucks in the front pocket, where you can feel the burn. Wallets are insulators.

I was looking for a 9mm and some powder not another 45 but I should have jumped on this one could have fixed the frame and sold it, though there is always the chance I would like it enough to keep it.

You don't sell puppies that follow you home.
