Lo & behold I got a little $ from the RR. Seems they had a contract claims conference with the union & paid a few old contract violation claims - mine were from 2001. Not a substantial sum by any means but enough to score this used 469 for change over $200 from gunborker. Now to score an ambi safety and spare mag.

I recently cranked up the Dillon & have a pile of practice ammo! SW

Is it full D/A only?

Got a Walther PPQ here in CO-2 that is D/A only, and it takes pretty intense concentration for me to hit anything with it....

But that's just me.

My somewhat limited experience in 9 MM was a Browning H.P.- which I liked a lot.

Regards,

Doc Sharptail

First shot is DA with following shots in SA mode. I'll put up a post how it shoots when I have it in hand.

I am a big fan of the BHP, too! SW

I had trouble with a pawn shop in Ga. over this gun. Paid for it & the guy told me he would mail "right away". I asked for the tracking # and he promised to send it "soonest".

In the meantime, my FFL guy who just retired left on vacation so I didn't know it hadn't been shipped. FFL guy gets home about 10 days later & calls to say no gun. I called the pawn shop & lost no time getting right to the point, expressing I was very much less than amused the gun for which I had paid hadn't arrived after 10 days. :-x

The story - which after talking to everybody seemed plausible - was that employee A had been in charge of gunborker matters. Him & the boss had a major falling out & he messed stuff up big time. Logged off from gunborker & walked out the door. Also had tossed or taken with him all records of who was supposed to get what gun. I was told he also deleted the shop's gunborker account but don't know if that's possible.

The new internet sales guy B apologized all over the place saying the mess had been dumped in his lap & he was working OT to get it all straightened out. He promised to ship that afternoon & call me back with the tracking #. I was apprehensive, but lo & behold, he did.

Just picked up my $205 S&W 469 and am way happy with it. Ran like a striped-a$$ monkey with a variety of handloads - FMJ, JHP & cast. I even mixed up a magazine & no problems.

First order of biz will be to order an ambi safety, extra mag or 2 and a LH holster. 2nd item will be to toss the mag safety - then a serious cleaning. It was advertised as "surplus" - don't know if that means Israeli or PD, but the previous owner had no sense of urgency about keeping it clean. Which is fine - it showed me it will run great while dirty.

Took a while, but everything worked out. I don't mind telling you, though, this was a NR seller & I got pretty nervous for a while! :-o SW

Glad it all worked out for you.

The last pawn shop deal I did was for a Weaver 3/4" tube. At least I was there in person, and it went o.k.

Doc Sharptail
