I came across a deal on one of my wish list items, and I am trying to figure out if the deal is workable. The object of my desire: the Smith & Wesson 627 V-Comp. Here, let me help you visualize it.

Eight rounds of .357 magnum revolvery goodness. Performance center tuned action. Removable compensator. Five inch barrel...which I consider to be Goldilocks (not too short, not too long, but just right). I'll be right back...I need a cold shower.
The dealer is offering it at just under MSRP which is not bad considering that there are some dealers attempting to charge more than MSRP...when you can find them in stock. I see a lot advertised for less than MSRP...but, they are on back order. This guy has more than one in stock, and he is willing to take a partial trade AND do layaway.
It's too much to resist. The shame of it all is that the only way this deal works is if I give up one of the guns currently in inventory...unless a friend comes through on his inclination to purchase a certain junk car currently in my possession. If he does, that covers my layaway down payment and gets me a third of the way to physical possession of my new hog leg.
Decisions, decisions. It will be the single most expensive firearms purchase I've made to date and perhaps ever. But. I. Don't. Care.
Further updates as events warrant.
