    Holy fuck do they have some high prices. :ugh:

    I saw this one .357 S&W revolver with rust on it and they wanted $850 :ugh:

    They had no Walther P22s though (What I wanted) but said that they should have one in soon and it would only cost a mearly $480 :eek3:

    Fuck that.

    They usually charge double whatever they paid for it, hence the high prices. Best you can do is haggle in a non-offensive way. Most of the guys that own these places get pissed as hell if you imply their prices are ridiculous, which they usually are.

    Of course, there's the few occasions where they don't know what they have. :)

    Called a few local gun stores today. One has a short barrel P22 all black for $299 brand new. It seems like a good deal. Should I jump on it?

    22's are the lame

    I got bored with my 9mm after 300 rounds, couldnt imagine how bored I would be with such a quasi pellet gun.

    But back on topic, I never see a good deal on firearms at gun shows OR pawn shops. They just get pissed off when you laugh at them and tell them their prices are higher
