My old man has been complaining as long as i can remember about his colt .25 that he sold in the 70's. I've been on the lookout since i was 21 & finally found one new in the box. The gun is mint, the box is showing some age. He was so thrilled to have it back & it certainly felt great to give it to him.

It's actually a pretty cool little pistol. The shop has another one, not quite "mint" but i may grab it for myself.

Excellent way to spend some cash! I think that as a person gets older they begin to really appreciate the sacrifices thier parents made for them, unfortunately sometimes its too late before they realize it.

On that note I gave my dad a Ruger LCP for christmas a few years ago because it was all he could talk about. He was thrilled, to say the least.

I don't mind telling. $375. After shopping gunbroker & considering the condition & it having the serialized box & warranty card i didn't mind paying it. Truthfully i would have paid more.
