OK, this has been bothering me for like 2 weeks now and I have to share my shame. About 4 months ago, me and a buddy wondered into a huge gun store and I noticed a familiar shape of a Styer M-series in one of the cases. Upon closer inspection, it ended up being a minty M357-A1 with two mags, case and manual. The pistol looked like someone fired 10 shots and sold it. Now... I have to share the sticker price... OK, here it comes... $299 Ok, so I looked around like I stole something and whipped out my plastic money substitute and 10 minutes later I was holding it close to my heart as we are walking towards the car. "What the heck is in this box?" asks my buddy. He just spent his time at the store drooling over some 10mm Glock and was upset he couldn't get it: it wasnt a Gen-3 and he wants to hang lights from every pistol he owns. So, on the way home in the car, I am thinking "Why did I spend the dough I didn't have? Why did I get a 357Sig handgun? I hate stocking more than 5 calibers of ammo so I only allow myself to buy 9mm, 32ACP and 22LR handguns!" So (here comes the dumb moment) I turn to my friend and offer to sell the gun to him: "Oh it can't replace a 10mm but it's a nice hot cartridge and sights are cool as hell, there is a rail and the price is only $300!!!" DUH! He bought it as soon as I said "RAIL". When we took it out to the range some time after the shameful incident too place, I realized how much of a gun this really is. NO DAMN RECOIL! Sweetest thing I ever shot. I have been begging my friend to sell it back to me every day since we went shooting. Nah-ah! He ain't stupid. I am stupid. I thought spilling my thoughts would make me feel better. It didn't... Please feel free to offer your M357-A1 to me for $300. Or your M9-A1. I promise I will sell my kids before I sell anything Steyr. P.S. I own an S9 and she is so lonely!
