I just looked at a used Walther ppk s .380 (smith&wesson) with pac-myer (sp) grips. It comes with three clips and a holster. The store wants $500. The gun appears to be in very good condition, not worn anywhere at all. They have a brand new one for $560. So, buying a used one with grips and a holster for $60 less doesn't sound like that great of a deal. But, I'm new at this; maybe it is. This will be my first gun. I forgot to ask how old the gun is.
How much value do handguns lose, in particular the american ppk s? It appears they do not depreciate much after purchase. I'll do seem google-searches in addition to what I learn from this thread. Thanks in advance for any advice. Also, if you can point me to any gun value websites, that would be great. Or, if you like any particular gun trader publications.
