    Neighbor came over on Saturday and says "You were interested in my Kimber before, will you give me $400 for it?"

    15 minutes later, we were at the LGS doing the transfer paperwork. The price was so good, I didn't mine paying the transfer fees.

    Here she is: Kimber Ultra Carry II in stainless.

    He threw in a couple of boxes of FMJ and a cleaning kit.

    I often read of great finds by members on this board. Finally, one came my way.

  4. Nice deal.

    Most of my neighbors don't know I have firearms but the one that does I keep waiting for him to come over and ask but nothing yet.

    Not a Kimber Fan, but NICE!

    I might even bite for that price... A former douche-bag co-worker of mine bought 2 Kimbers, each over $1200. Once he decided that 1 was enough, he sold the other for $800 lmao!!!

    He really needs a handgun, he once got his ass kicked by an undersized 10 year old, NO LIE!!! :eek::rolleyes:

    Nice! But, why was your neighbor trying to ditch it?

    Sort of a motivated seller situation. He and his wife are splitting up and he's raising cash.

    Why did you have to go through a dealer for a private transaction? What state do you live in?

    I live in PA. Mostly a personal preference to make sure the pistol was clearly in my name at a certain point in time.
    I mean, I know the guy bit, I don't KNOW him.

    And you've just covered your ass if for some reason the gun was stolen.
  11. Actually i think that's the law in PA. if not it sure has been a prominent myth.
    Long guns aren't required to be transferred threw an FFL though.
