I Love My Local Pawn Shop

free pic hosting

Got a phone call from my local pawn shop, said they have something right up my alley just come in. Went and saw they had a vintage Rossi Model 43 in .22 LR with original box in very nice shape. $150 out the door. They know I love blued steel and wood guns.
Say when.....

That is a great deal, congrats on the new addition. I use to find a lot of deals at my local pawn shop but it has been slim pickings for the least few years.

Very nice!

Some of my better guns have come from local pawn shops.

In my mind pawn shops are somewhat similar to gun shows. They are great places to look. Sometimes one finds a desired item for little money, other times one finds trash for one's soul.

Keep looking and know what YOU value things as worth having.
