    I hate to be the guy to whine about other peoples ads for used guns...

    But. Oh, My. God.
    I couldnt believe this one.

    I had to send him a message and ask if it was a typo...

    Just in case you cant see it. Its a used Taurus 911. Starting bid is $700... but just in case you didnt want someone to snake you at the last minute, you can use the buy it now and pick her up for only $925.00!!!!!!!:eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Except for the Mexican-pimp gold accents, I think it's actually a nice looking pistol. Too bad it's not a SIG for that kind of money!

    I know the sad part is that I want one of these. They're the perfect combo of size, function and capacity.

    No worries, I found a few for around $350

    All you need is one gullible/uniformed buyer, just one. And there are always plenty of buyers out there that don't know/don't research the real value of what they are buying. He probably is smart enough to know if he waits long enough, he'll get his money.

    I dunno, I kinda like the gold accents? :oops:

    And, looks like he dropped the "buy it now" price to $825.00.

    Why does Taurus goob up their guns with so much writing/etching crap?

    Instead of gold accents, a better selling point for that Taurus would be that it had already been sent back to the factory and fixed so it would function correctly.

    Taurus does this gold accent to most models. I'm not a fan but it's not uncommon. I don't think this one will sell for the starting price of $600. Good luck buddy!

    Yeah it's gold plated not just the gold Taurus puts on there. Take a look at his other sales going on
    Now I don't much like gold on anything but coins and such but the Ruger blackhawk may sell.
    But who would buy a gold Taurus? I won't even buy a regular Taurus

    Really? They're a little hard to find.
    I too like the design for what it is. A compact 92 knockoff with rail and frame mounted safety.. Whats not to like?! For $350-$400 Id snag one up if ever I saw one that wasnt outrageously priced.

    There's a Cutlass Supreme with hydros rolling on 20's somewhere around that's just screaming for this to go in the glovebox.

    I saw one of those Olds Cultlasses yesterday.... was it a silver-ish ragtop with a bolt on spoiler, and bass-booming music going?

    Except for the "spoiler", it was a nice looking car, actually.
