    Was at a local swapmeet today and looking at a few guns a guy had forsale, I was bummed because
    I couldnt afford his $2000 Olympic Arms Ar15 or for that matter any of his guns. I was looking around when a friend of
    mine that sells there said "Hey I know you like guns, wanna see what I have for sale" Of course I said sure. He said
    hed just bought a 357 magnum revolver so he was gonna sell a 38 special since he didnt need it any more. He didnt
    want to sell it to a stranger and therefore didnt have it displayed, He took out a case and opened it to show me a blued
    Ruger Service Six in 38 special with a 4 inch barrel in what Im guessing is 85-90% condition (im not an expert but it is
    in excellent shape). I asked him the price and almost crapped myself when he said $150. Needless to say I had to have
    it and bought it on the spot. It wasnt until a bit later when I was looking at it that I realized that it was the Liberty
    marked "made in the 200th year of american liberty" from 1976!! I havent quit smiling yet LOL. Finally I was in the right
    place at the right time:laugh::thumbup:

    I'll give $155 for it, that way you get your money back and with the extra $5 you can buy two 5.56 rounds towards your future AR.

    Ok, ok,.... I'll give you $160 for it, that way you at least get your money back, and then you have an extra $10 towards getting 3 rounds of .223 for your future AR. ;)
