Did a gun run this morning (on vacation) and came across a used Thompson Contender at Gander Mt for only $425. It is a newer G2 frame and an older Contender 44Mag barrel with sights. Looks new. Impulse buy as I don't have a TC in my gun collection. Dont' often find such deals there. Last one was a couple years ago with a Marlin stainless Guide gun for $179.00 (Needed a new extractor which I had.)
Drinking beer now. Soon going to wax my Jeep in the shop as it is raining.
