    I just wanted to make a quick note here to apologize for a mistake I made in the classifieds. I recently listed some guns for sale and I put the wrong price on one. When I list a gun for sale I take the receipt and I remove 10%-20% from what I paid for it (depending on if it has been shot or not) then I list it for that price. When listing my Ruger LCR .357mag I accidentally used the receipt from my Ruger SP101 to come up with the price (I just saw Ruger .357mag on the receipt and did not pay attention to model number). The SP101 was about $90 more than the LCR. Therefore it looked like I was price gouging a bit on the LCR. That was not my intent.

    Compared to some of the dooosh bags on here, an extra $90 could have been considered a fire sale

    In my short time here, I know that you're an honorable man. Mistakes happen.
