    Just though it would be cool to hear some stories of good gun buys you guys have had! My personal best was a rifle safe I bought for $200! Had a bunch of stuff in it.

    I got a stevens bolt action 22 for $20. It looks like someone used it for a jack handle once or twice but its shoots shorts straight and has killed more coons than any other gun I have.

    30 round PMAG for $75. It has a window..... But seriously, a BNIB Ruger P95DC for $175. Not the best pistol, but I have put thousands of rounds through it.

    I remember when sks's could be had for $100 and you got a free case of ammo with it. Yea they werent that popular back then and money went alot further. I bought a brand new Super Single Six for $165 and a mauser for $50.

    Now if we are talking more recently, a Winchester mod. 70 30-06 with scope for $250 not a spec of bluing loss either.

    Last year a guy saw a Banjo I had for sale on CL. Nothing high end but a nice Kent 4 string worth maybe $100.00 (more like $75.00) Owner of Taurus calls and asks if I am interested so he meets me in my office parking lot. He produces a nearly new Taurus 605 (w/receipts) in box with paperwork. So I am acting standoffish and he is really liking the Banjo so I am thinking I am going to have to kick in some cash but do not want to be the one to offer so I say "Well, so what are ya thinkin' here" and he says "I'll trade straight across". We shook hands and away we both went.

    I tried to post this earlier but my phone was acting up!!! In that safe I bought for $200 was the following:
    *Mossberg 500a
    *keltec .380
    *Ruger sp101 357 stainless revolver
    *Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm in the box
    *Glock 33 357sig, with 2 ss match grade barrels so it would also shoot 9mm and .40
    *AK-47 under folder
    *S&W MP-15 AR-15 with Eotech sight and other goodies hanging from it
    *and 2 benchmade knife's!
    All that for $200 dollars!! In don't feel anyone can beat me on this!! Haha! No lie, serious as a heart attack. I kicked the guy out of the building for the physical property owner. Legally under the circumstances the guy lost all rights to anything that was left behind. He had until Oct 15 at noon to have any and all of his personal belonging out. The building owner had an auction and sold all his stuff that he left at the advice of his attorney. Then we bought the building outright! I took all of the guns with reciept andbhad all the numbers ran. All came back legal! Best score I ever made!!
