I've bought quite a few guns from pawnshops over the years. Treasure is where you find it.
Give the panic buyers about 6 months to a year to settle down, and you will find plenty of deals in pawn shops.
I grab a thrifty nickle to see who's selling what. I also like Academy. I know alot of people who cant stand going to Academy for different reasons. I could care less about the snot nosed wanna be know it all, behind the counter. "Just gimme what I ask for and put some friggin duct tape over little "Brad's" mouth cause he's starting to piss me off" There is a really good gunshop in El Campo called R&M that I have bought a few weapons from. Great deals from those guys.
