No, I am not in the market for a Dan Wesson revolver. Actually have have owned one of their complete pistol packs back in the day. That was well before we created the reference collection and gun range. Kinda wish it was still here. But the prices don’t justify the acquisition for our current business model.
Which is why I find it interesting to stumble onto a solo Dan Wesson revolver in a pawn shop. I imagine most folks looking in this case would just glance over it as, “just another revolver”. And being fair, that is all it is.
No I didn’t purchase it. But I wanted to use these images to make the point: I always. Always. Look at every single, individual, used gun in a FFL retailer. My eyes don’t just glance over the shape and make. I read every makers’s mark and tag. Because that is how you find the random, weird thing to fill a hole in your collection.
And don’t discount the local arbitrage factor. This Dan Wesson revolver is located in a very urban gun shop. One could even say a borderline sketchy neighborhood. Haven’t taken a survey of the average gun owner in this area, but it would be a reasonable guess to assume most want automatics, small automatics or small revolvers for CCW. Not this big, heavy, hog-leg.
So it sits. Waiting for the right guy to scoop it up.
