• Guilty Pleasures

    From Weatherman@VERT/TLCBBS to All on Sat Jun 24 14:28:04 2023
    So one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to firearms are the Heritage Arms .22
    revolvers. Seems that every gun show I go to there's a vendor with a whole bunch
    of these on a table with decorative grips at the attractive price point of "just
    around $160".

    Last show picked up one with Billy The Kid grips. 4 1/2" barrel, with wood grips
    bearing the image of Billy The Kid carved into them. Had to have it.

    Then there was a 6" barreled revolver with polished grips bearing the US Flag (one of several styles I've seen). This came home with us too...

    I have several of these inexpensive little rimfires, even have one of the .22 revolver carbines. They just seem irresistible at the price they sell them for and once they get home, they actually make pretty fun little plinkers!

    A local gun shop had 2 of the .22 models with the flag grips. He was willing to sell them as a set for $200

    That qualifies as a nice score. I've seen at least three variations of the US flag on their grips. Did your set have the same pattern or were they different?

    Same pattern. Looked like a matched pair. My guess is that is why the
    dealer was thinking he could sell them together.

    at a store in Huntsville...

    Only have one state commemorative, that's my Wyoming commemorative 1911. Mine is 12 out of 44 made, and at $2500 I will tell you that this is NOT a range gun. Pretty much this one will be a safe queen as are my two Trump commemoratives....
