I wondered the exact same thing. But considering he brought it to the Police Dept to sell it to me.. and he used to carry a badge..

Figured it was a golden deal !

Well, he could have received it as a gift a while ago (that does happen) and he needed the cash now, and he sold the thing that he used the least of all his gear. I find my camera comes out only when I'm bored, or when I have another person along that doesn't have a flasher. Maybe he had it listed for 100.00 off of list price, and didn't have any takers. In case you haven't heard, there are people with money woes at the moment.

Or maybe it was stolen. Lord knows that happens enough around here.

No worries about it being stolen. TRUST ME. I had the same concerns and cautions..

He brought it to my Police Dept and sold it to me in Uniform. He was also an ex police officer. Just clearing off the shelf per the wifes orders apparently!

Said it was used 6 times and I believe it! LOOKS LIKE NEW!

Im not rubbing it in.. Just excited about the deal and wanted to mention it as a lot of us are looking for things we want but trying not to spend everything in the process... it goes to show that there are good people and good deals out there. Just gotta keep looking.

I believe several other threads have mentioned Karma as well... I am a believer.

FISH ON !

    • One of the young fellas in the extended family thinks he needs to buy a Bushmaster 5.5 rifle for general use and because he is now living in what he calls a "nervous tension" part of the Twin Cities.  Franky, it is all "nervous tension" to me but never mind,  what do those of you who actually own and shoot Bushmaster rifles,   about which I know nothing, think of them for quality, price and dependability. Personally, I'd rather have a Beretta 92FS or a nice little Ruger LC9mm and a REAL rifle is a bolt action, blued metal work of art with a birds-eye maple or burled walnut stock!
    • Cool pics, good job.
    • Wisconsin was a bust.   There were plenty of birds around, but they clearly are well educated when it comes to hunters.  Most hens were going to nests early, but nothing would respond to or come to calls of any kind.  I watched many birds that I would call to in a field turn and walk away, even jakes and gobblers with no hens.  Some birds would sprint out of sight!    I did come very close to a nice gobbler but forgot my range finder in my blind and didn't shoot when I thought he was a bit too far.  Ranging the area later proved otherwise...  I also had another group with a nice gobbler and a few hens that I had been chasing multiple times, they started going away from my calling, so I crawled up behind some thick pine trees to get close for an ambush shot.  Of course a hen busted me at 15yd and they disappeared...     After two solid days of rain, and this morning's rain with zero birds heard or seen I packed up and went home.  My brother called to tell me he shot a bird in the spot he told me I should go to...    All in all I only heard two gobblers actually gobble in three hard days of hunting, neither would come to me.  Many more seen.  I only heard one hen yelp back to me, again saw many others that would not make a peep...
    • So as far as anyway knows there should be no adverse effects except for extra work in the fall.
    • At my age Eyeguy I'm just trying not to lose too many.
    •   Sorry. Cell service down there was horrible. Had to wait till I got back to a real computer.
    • Kept me waiting long enough  congratulations Don
    • another good trick for good maters is once the tomatoes start forming is to put a tablespoon of epsom salt by the stalk about every 3rd-4th watering!!!!!!!! i'm a believer!!!!!!! 
    • Well my last season of hunting turkeys was good but very wet. Bird numbers are down big time but also did not help we had to dodge a few tornadoes. This made hunting a little tougher but can't control old mother nature. I would rather have a foot of snow over the rain but we dealt with . First day of the season we were able to get one bird down after making a move around the property. Birds were staying out in the field with the rain so we came up on the edge of the woods they were by. We only had one shot to take wanted to try for a double but didn't work out. First day and morning everything was going good but we could not get any more male birds in sight. Put miles on and hunted 3 different properties nothing going.   We get to Friday nothing happens again that morning .  That afternoon I was able to get 3 birds fired up and two would come close but never commit to killing range. So I played around with these two birds starting at 2:30 and I was finally able to get them to break at 6:30 and come in. After a lot of cat and mouse going on. I would setup they would gobble their heads off and seem like they were coming in then get further away and shut up . So I would walk about 100 yds away start calling again and they would fire up so this went on for hours. My last move I went as close as I could get without bumping them or hoping I didn't hit the call one time and they were within 50 yds. I sat down fast got ready and they were within 25 yds. I was greedy trying to get both lined up for one shot since I had two tags but just wouldn't happen. One dropped out of sight and now the bird left is 32 yds. Waited till he cleared couple small trees and dropped him right there not a wing flop. The other bird was gone with no shot to have. This 20 gauge is sure fine and knocks the heck out the birds. .
