46. I never said you guessed high bud
One of the last pistols I bought was a new one that ran me $319, but it was a specific model that was a collaboration between Colt and CZ and Colt backed out of it, leaving CZ with a bunch of these very high quality pistols (the ones marked as Colts sell for close to or over a thousand dollars) and no real time or desire to market them. So they sold them off to distributors, and for a few years they were available for a paltry amount of money. I just happened to buy one immediately before the supply dried up.

It was an example of how people can find a solid weapon for under $500 with some effort, and good timing, but in no way was I saying that $200 is a reasonable amount of money to go shopping for a gun with.
