I would recommend SP-101 Ruger 38/357 combo... a real nice power house and with custom grips it makes a nice toy

No kidding... This one here is packed, during lunch and on weekends you can't get near that place... and original owner is there every day.

I think at one point he tried to sell the name or have a piece of the action from each one and because of s^*t like this he stopped doing that and decided to keep one joint open... but when ever you in the area it definitely worth to stop by...it worth every penny.

I know they had one in Trump Plaza also a while back but I heard it wasn't the same, not sure if it still there, haven't played in that hotel in ages.

Lol that's my choice. Already spent $730 yesterday on some more systainers but need about another $800 worth to Complette the setup so $500 wouldn't cover it. If it would only be $500 then a EOTECH sight.

I was looking for knife set for me wife. See them in bed and bath but they didn't have any for sale. just display models. Ended up getting her the global set for our anniversary. They were triple the price of the Schmidt bros ones but they are very nice. I'm even looking forward to using them for cutting open boxes with lol
