So, I work for an FFL (pawn shop) and some guy traded in a Browning Hi-power 9mm awhile back. I took it out of the safe in the back and set it out on the shelf everyday for 3months+ (I was amazed it set on the shelf that long). Never got the chance the fire the gun, but I fell in love w/ it. I wasn't looking for a 9mm at the time (had a 9mm conversion for my xdm40, so didn't really 'need' a 9mm)

Then, about a week ago...the Browning HP sold. It was in 90%+ condition and we let it go for ~$600 tax and all. Now i'm sick...lol.
I just spent $ on a 49" Sharp TV a few weeks before and didn't want to spend any more $. And to make things worse, my co-worker sold it, so I didn't even get commission...lol.

How much of an idiot am I for not buying the HP?:-?

4yrs ago I did the same thing w/ a Kimber Eclipse II Pro 1911. Missed a hell of a buy because I wasn't looking for a pistol at the time (i'm a rifle guy).

Any other FFL-shop workers out there that have missed great buys?
Maybe yall can make me feel like less of an idiot.

I dont work for a ffl or a pawn shop but im sure id go broke real quick
Yea...going broke working at a pawn shop rings a bell to me.
We also do alot of car audio (i'm head installer) and I do ALOT of car audio competition.

7yrs running, I've had at least 2 state records a year. Last season, I placed 2nd at USACi world finals w/ our 10-15"sub, 20,000w demo van.

I'm addicted to shooting and car audio. lol.

Working at a place that sells both never helps. Hell, last Christmas I bought my dad a Rem 1100 Ducks Unlimited 12ga. He taught me to shoot/hunt and I have been a shooter all my life. Killed my first deer at 7yrs old w/ his old M1 30cal. Dropped it in its tracks @ 80yrds. :)

Well, I shot ~600rnds thru my XDm the last 2 weekends. Then I shot some Tannerite w/ my Rem 700 7mm-08 and Ruger Mini14 this weekend. Got a little of that 'damit' out of my system.

Launching 1/2's of 35gal barrels 60-70ft into the air w/ Tannerite helps alot w/ getting the 'damit I'm an idiot' out of your system.

I picked up a Hi-Power last year with the adjustable sights for $479.99

You really really screwed up.

Damn Cannibul, go easy on the guy!;)

BTW, did you threaten the seller with physical harm or something for that deal on the Hi-Power? The cheapest one I've seen was $600.

Nope. They had put the wrong price on it. But they honored it.
