I stopped into a Gander store this evening that I was told was moving to check any sales. No sales had started yet, I surprised the manager by asking since that has not been made public yet. I stillhad to check out the used guns and there I saew my next purchases, a pair of top break H&R Auto Ejectors in 32 S&W. Asking price was pretty reasonable at $70 for the one and $50 for the other. The first was in very good condition, at least 85% with shiny chrome and worn but not torn or messed up original rubber grips and with the second closer to 50% as it has some pitting on the frame and barrel. I offered $100 for the pair and with a little thought the manager OK'd the deal. I picked up some additional odds and ends and when it came time to pay, I used a 15% off card I recieved in the mail and then charged it on the Gander card where I got another 5% back for future purchases. So, for a little over $80 I got two old, non-collectable, anemic, poorly designed, but interesting and working handguns. Not bad if I do say so myself. Now, I just have to find that box or two of 32 S&W that I think I still have hiding somewhere. I think they should be of about the same era so maybe shooting them wouldn't be a good idea as putting them together as a set might bring the value back to a bit over $100.
