    Is everyone keeping an eye on the pawnshops for good deals? The ones around here seem to have pretty good prices on some guns. They haven't increased their prices much if any and several have pretty decent layaway plans. I laid away a Ruger Redhawk .44 for $250 in great condition.

    DFW area.....Wylie.
    I've checked a couple of pawn shops in Plano. For their used guns, they wanted just as much as it cost for a new one.......so I bought new ones.

    While in Shreveport, I was able to pick up a couple of AR's for a decent price. I guess it just depends on their pricing policies.

    I've been checking the pawn shops in Mesquite and Garland and haven't seen any bargains. Check craigslist for garage/yard sales, sometimes you can find good deals and haggle the price down.

    Rarely have I found a good deal at pawn shops. Nowadays most of the chain pawn shops have pre-set prices and do not generally haggle as much as the ole' Mom & Pop shops.

    I've found some good deals in pawnshops, and seen some outlandish prices as well. I've been looking for a decent Marlin 336 in .30/30 for a project, found one in a pawn shop, nothing special, just a standard production rifle with a cheapy Simmons 3x9 on it, for $459.00. I pointed out that was considerably above list, let alone discounted price for a new rifle, and was told with a shrug, "somebody will buy it".

    Yeah, but go in to sell one of your guns and see how much they think it's worth. I understand they make money by buying from people strapped for cash, and will usually low ball, but dang, they need to price it correctly to sell.
