Rain, with a Sprinkle of Cash Investments

The garage door opened this morning to reveal rain. The current temperature of fifty-four is supposedly the high for today. I can live with this forecast.

Had a call yesterday from a fella said he's fallen on hard times. He's the self employed type, like me and needs quick cash. Asked if I could help. Said sure and he's agreed to drop off his small collection of firearms today.

Only reason I'm telling 'ya is he said one of the items is an old Ruger Mark I....

If it meets conditional requirements I will purchase the baby for my personal collection. I'll probably change my mind in a few weeks and sell it but for now she'll be mine. The other firearms in his collection will step out the door sometime this week. I've orders for all, based on condition. The owners prices are just too good. Investments, don't 'ya know, instant cash - firearms.

And, don't you forget it.

  1. I've used those very words more than once. Never worked with the wife though.

    1. Women aren't very good at investment opportunities. You'd be amazed how many firearms I've smuggled into the house. If she spots one I just say, "What, this old thing. Ah, heck Honey I've owned it for years."

  2. Only works if you can bear to sell them. Never learned to let go.

    Sea fog today. Stuck at anchor.

    1. Never, ever, fall in love with a firearm. Never. There are those we must set aside, such as Grandpa's old shooting iron, but otherwise, everything has a price. Enjoy the fog, my friend.

  3. If you decide to sell... you have a buyer down here in FL.

  7. Really, it is sad. So many are truly experiencing hard times. They must sell but can't afford to wait for the best price. This is where I step in...I keep a box of tissues within reach, and I don't mean that in a mean way, it's just fact. Thanks, my friend.
