going to make a run through Plano/Frisco shops today looking for my "next" firearm purchase. I have no idea what I'm looking for.

Kinda like going to the dog pound and seeing which one says "take me home daddy"

I've stopped making the pawn shop rounds. Their prices are close to retail these days.

If your lucky, I always enjoy seeing the $475 Glock 17 Gen 1 police trade in pistols in the case.

Good deals are few and far between, but I found a Beretta 390 in good shape a while back for $400 OTD and snatched it up.

Buzz I just got a new 22-250 so don't get one of those. I've been wanting to try a Leupold VX5 or 6HD with a firedot reticle. Either of those would be good to buy later at discount prices. Colt or Sig 1911 also.

ha ha aggie duly noted

I'm well aware of pawn shop finds. You have to ask for what's in the back and have cash in hand, got it covered. Consignment guns are always a good target.

I do agree, everyone is pretty educated in gun values these days, but its a buyers market cuz not many are buying guns now. So forget about the price tag, cash is king.

beats working though.

True....gotta remember they probably paid about 50-60% of what they are selling it for. The above 390 was listed for $450 plus tax...I offered $400 tax included and they took it.

Heck of a deal for a 390. I've had some good pawn shop finds through the years, although I agree they're less common than they used to be.

ok, ya'll were right, pawn shops aint got chit anymore

I did find two revo's I liked at a LGS. I asked if they would sell me both guns, cash at a better deal, they said no, so I will be buying them off Gunbroker, screw the local gun store, hope they choke on them.

They were higher than several on gunbroker anyway.

Always good to do your homework before hand. I find that some of the small town pawn shops are good, sometimes.

I quit looking there a few years ago. Some are asking more than retail, I guess just to see if some guy will make the impulse buy. Most of those guys are pricks and customer service is all but non-existent. If I have money to spend and you have 2 customers in the store, if I have to ask you for help looking at your merchandise, I'm out.

one pawn shop owner said when he gets in a higher grade gun, they sell within an hour. so its just being there at the right time. he said if he gets a high grade gun in that's new, never fired, he keeps it if he wants it.

From my perspective, pawn shops can be a source for "parts guns" - but not much else anymore.
