Ok, I've seen those before didn't know the name. Nice looking Colt. That ones just over in Georgia. I guess I don't understand why you don't buy the one on GunBroker. I know everyone wants to be loyal to the local gun shop but more and more each day they can't compete with the internet.

I support my favorite gun shop by having gunsmith work done, buying scopes, optics, hats, some ammo, magazines, but I don't wait around if they don't stock the gun I'm looking for...

Why not go ahead and hit the "buy now" tab? It's new so if there's anything wrong you've got a warranty. The seller is rated well and that doesn't happen by accident. I doubt that guy would gank you on a $900.00 pistol and risk his A+ rating. You could always place a minimum bid and see what happens??? Ask Arland, sometimes that low bid will be the winner :-)

That's the way I roll, I'd do the minimum opening bid and see what happens, good chance you'll be the only and winning bidder.
I have seen that seller on GB a lot, may have even bought from him?

I'm sure there are several FFLs that will be an option. The prices often can be a good bit different. Our larger LGS charges $30.00 while a smaller mom & pop is $10.00. They use the lower transfer fee to get people in the door. Gun broker should have a list of options in your vicinity. There's probably 10 or 12 in the Huntsville area. That's Redstone Arsenal territory, lots of 2A proponents in them woods :-)
Good luck with the new shooter.

GunBroker purchase is easy, tutorials walk you thru the whole process. Yes, you will need to give your dealer/FFL a heads up. To complete purchase you will find a "search for a FFL"
It's just a question of what they will charge you, you may want to shop around for best price and closest to you.

Once you get that first purchase under your belt, your going to say "man what have I been missing"...

...this is y'all's fault... I just gave my local Ffl a heads up... he said "...bring it on" ...so now, I placed my bid low (as in just a bit above the minimum bid) and will watch it...
