And therein lies the rub.

I will chime in based on Subject "Fans of Mediocre" which I am, meaning low priced (I like low priced better than saying cheap LOL.  The way I look at it is I mostly shoot a lot of  targets (22, can afford AMMO) and also have a 380 and 9MM (defense and some target, but mostly point and shoot with minimum aim).  I am not into collectible or odd guns where the thread seems to be directed. Good topic I say. 

Anyway, "low priced" works for that and can lay in the cabinet same as a "High Priced" gun. :-). That said I shoot pretty regularly (twice  month at least).

Low Priced Guns like:  Taurus PT111 G2  $189, Spectrum 380 $134 after rebate, Heritage Single Six $119, GSG 1911 $239 (getting a bit pricey for me) and Firefly $159, Ruger SR22 more pricey at $285 with 3 MAGS included when I bought it, SW22 Victory bought used with a lot of extras, trigger mod (2 LB or less), 5 Mags with modified base, and slide attachment on it for $249, and a Phoenix PH22 kit with 3 and 5 inch barrel and extra Mag, and hard case $180. They all shoot reliable enough (for my use) including the defense guns.  Prices not include Tax and background

The Spectrum was the worst to get fixed (sent back to TAURUS twice Fail to Fire and then a Lock Back Problem  they paid shipping both times).

Now is reliable: NOT Fail to Fire, and NOT Locking Back when shooting, and NOT  Fail to Eject or Fail to Load (I did file a small "U" shape into the bottom of the Feed ramp vs having it straight across).

The big takeaway is: what do do if you pass first!

Hope she calls a friend and sells them for what their worth, not what she thinks I paid for them.

I use to use her ploy of saying, 'oh no, I've had that for a long time'. It worked fine until I was asked to explain why I had to buy a bigger safe.

      My FN 509 MRD arrived this past week and I wasted no time popping a spare Trijicon RM07 red dot optic on it and taking it to the range.  This is my second 509, having purchased the non optic-ready midsize 509M earlier this year and being very pleased with it as well.
      As I have commented elsewhere on TGO lately, I am quickly coming to the point where I am not interested in a handgun for daily carry if isn't set up for use with an optic.  I began the red dot journey a year ago and am fully converted to the religion now.  If you had asked me about it two years ago, I would have told you I was greatly skeptical.  This one of those things where personal exposure and experience are the greatest persuaders.
      As for the 509 MRD, there is is only one reason that this gun could could fail to put a hurt on the sale of more well known 9mm handguns for duty or serious concealed carry:  lack of marketing exposure.
      FN doesn't have the marketing budget of Glock or Smith & Wesson, I'm sure.  But they have a superior firearm in the 509.
      There.  I said it.
       
      Buy one before the rest of the world figures it out and you have to wait to find one.

      I've just been given this by a really good friend (it's good to help out sometimes!)
      As far as I can tell it's a Model 32 (possibly a Terrier) in .38 s&w
      That's pretty much all kinds can find online about it. I found a couple on Gunbroker with values that, to me, seem outlandish, but I can't find any dating info for the serial number. 
      It has one number on the butt, that matches inside the grips, but there's a different number on the inside of the crane.
      Can anyone help me out with dating/value info please? This is my first actual Smith revolver.....
