Hi Star people! Glad I found this forum, looks like a great resource.
I have a Star BM that I bought many years ago, the gun sat neglected for many years, but last week I took it to the range and fired a few boxes of ammo with it, and really was a great experience, I forgot what a sweet shooting little chunk of a handgun that is the BM.
That got me thinking, since they're not making them anymore, I'd like to pick up another. I'm mostly inter interested in as close to near NIB condition that is possible. I was looking through some of the completed listings on gunbroker, and saw that a few NOS BM's sold in November for a pretty reasonable price, but not much else in the last year, so it would seem, that at least on GB, excellent condition BM's are few and far between.
I'd love to hear from some of the members here regarding their experiences procuring BM's. Where do you look? gun shops, auction sites, gun shows?
Also, does anyone carry a BM as a CCW? Any drawbacks besides the weight? currently I carry a plasticky 9, the BM has me intrigued as a carry piece, but I am very careful when choosing a handgun a legal concealed carry piece. I don't really see any problems with carrying the BM in condition 1, but like to hear your opinions.
