They did have a h&r 22lr revolver for $200 I was about to tell him I'd give him $150 just because he said he's having trouble selling them cause everyone wants semi autos.

I usually try to get people to go down on price at gun shows it works every time. I only go down like $20. It doesn't hurt to try

We just had 12,000 people at a gun show in Orlando. For the first time since I have been going to these shows there were not many bargains, new or used. That said, there is a lot of stuff concentrated in one area to look at. You don't have to go to fifteen gun shops to see what they have. They are there for you to look at and compare. There are seven shows a year in Orlando, and I get to most of them. Cheap entertainment, and I get a lot of research on whatever I may be thinking of buying.

I usually go down 100$ just to see their reaction. If they don't immediately take the gun away I know they'll haggle. Lol

Check out CMP. They still have some good deals. A friend of mine just bought an M-1 this past weekend. He got a like new for 900 and they had 30-06 ammo 200 rounds for 98 dollars.
