    The two I bought for my daughters I paid $300 each. One of those was maybe four years ago from arms list, and the other was with in the past year from this forum. The ones I bought were used, but not beat up. Same barrel length as yours, and blued.

    $350 is a pretty solid retail price for a used Bearcat. If you were selling it, you might squeeze a bit more ($400ish) out of it since it looks unfired and has the box, etc. New, they can be had for under $500.

    Not if you like it. You didn't pay too much. You paid too early. Now, got shoot it with your kids. You'll get many times your money's worth out of it.
