    My first Seecamp:

    When I was stationed at Ft. Bragg, NC, I was taking a buddy out to all the local gun and pawn shops helping him get a feel for what he wants to get for a carry gun. One of the last places we go into was a little hole in the wall pawn shop with mostly overpriced junk, when in the corner and the glass I see a lightly used little Seecamp .32. I ask to look at it, check it over...while it's a little dirty it's in really good shape, I ask what they wanted for it and he tells me $225. Needless to say, about 15 mins later it followed me home.

    Picked up my Ruger 44 Redhawk with less than 50 rounds down it for 225.00 in a pawn shop.
    That's the best deal that I cut that's worth bragging about.;)

    When I sold my M1A, I had about 20 GI magazines for it (total cost zero; I wonder how that happened :rolleyes:), that I did not sell with the rifle. I traded them and $79 for a brand new S&W Model 629 PP stainless .44 Magnum that the local gun store had in on consignment from an estate sale. It was unfired and still had the factory warranty card in the box.

    Of course, there's always the Ruger 10/22 I got for free. :happy0001:

    What is this "consignment Im always hearing about? What does it mean when you buy a gun on consignment? How do you do it?"

    Best deal I got? Marlin Model 60 for $10 cash. The rebound stop for the bolt had broken, and part of it was keeping the trigger from working properly. Took two minutes to fix.

    My friend picked up a Mak 90 for $100 not too long ago. He looked at it at a gun show, and when he stripped it it was obvious that the rifle had been used with corrosive ammo but not cleaned. The bore is bright (yay chrome!), but the bolt carrier and gas piston are pitted. Who cares? It still works perfectly.

    Consignment is basically when a store sells a gun for someone else.

    BOth the SKS and AK47 bought several years ago, so the SKS was about market price then, the AK still well under
