NOS Colt's .38 SUPER GM FOUND!!!

Friends,

I cannot resist telling you of my GOOD fortune this week. (As some here know, I've wanted a .38 Super for quite a while.) = I've found this last WEEK an UNFIRED Series 80 & "Plain Jane blue" Government Model in .38 Super, with all the papers & blue plastic Colt's case, at a GREAT price. Serial number: 28256XX.
(It still even has the "hang tag" attached from the gun store that originally sold it.)

I called customer service at Colt, gave the fellow the serial number & was told that it was made in 2009.

The owner told me that, "I'm not sure why I bought & just stored it away, without even test firing it, but I did.".

I CAN HARDLY WAIT for the GM to arrive here at the FFL dealer in SATX, so that I can enjoy it.

Also, does anyone know what the pistol is worth at "fair market retail", as I need to add it to my insurance policy that covers my guns??

yours, sw

To All,

WHICH specific factory load for the .38 Super do you consider as BEST for uniformed police service.

I'm thinking the 147 grain JHP at about 1200FPS should be fine.
