I don't even know you, and I already don't like you. Congrats on the new "hog leg". Wish I had a good story,but I always end up paying double. Maybe I should change my forum name to Eyor.

Winchester 1897 12 gauge built in 1913 that my dad traded away when I was a kid. One of his best friends found where it ended up about 5 years after my dad passed away and bought it and gave it to me. Cost: $0, value: Priceless.

I've gotten a couple. The most recent was this one I suppose.

1995 Harrington & Richardson 999 Sportsman, 6" barrel. The only thing wrong is the rear sight is missing. I made one, but really need to go ahead and order one.



$138.00 out the door.

Two come to mind.
1. At a local gun show- flat broke, but wanted to drool over the guns. One seller had a bunch of ammo rolled up in a canvas strip- whole thing was about 15 inches across- asked what he wanted for it- said $5. Well, I DID have $5. Pulled out a few assorted rounds for my cartridge collection. Sorted out the rest. Included some 30-40 Krag, 40 rounds of .348 Winchester, 60 rds of 7.62 NATO Tracer, and 10 rounds of copper cased 45-70 (Benet primed) I sold the ammo to 4 different dealers, and was left with the strip of canvas- and realized it was an early machinegun belt. Sold that to a Class III dealer. Walked out with $100 in cash.

2. Local auction. Bidding on 2 boxes of assorted junk sitting on a small wooden desk (with a broken leg)- wanted a nice wood plane in one box. Got the 2 boxes for a dollar. Auction moved down the way to another pile, when a guy offered me $5.00 for a motor that was in one box. Sure. When I was loading boxes into my truck auction staff said "Don't forget your desk." Seems the desk went with the boxes. When I got home, was pulling the drawers, and in the back of the bottom drawer was a nice little nickeled .32 S&W hammerless. (loaded). I called the auctioneer next day- he advised that sale had been from an estate, no one had declared any guns, it was in a lot I bought, and was now mine. Fixed leg on desk, daughter used it for 10 years. Got the plane,a desk, a pistol, and $4 cash.

A guy walked into my shop just after I had received my FFL, he wanted me to look over & buy some rifles he had, I told him I wasn't yet stocking rifles...
His answer was he was getting a divorce & he was selling all 6 for $300-on top of that I could keep the big box of ammo. One of the rifles was a Marlin 336 with a decent scope, easily worth $300 by itself!

I won't mention the free guns that are given to me a couple of times a year, but here is my Armscorp M14 that set me back $12.50.

Had to trade a Walther P99 .40 for the JAE stock, but did not mind as the stock sells for about $1,100.

Stainless Smith and Wesson Model 60(chiefs). 2 1/8" bbl. 2 safariland comp speedloaders, safariland OWB, 200 rds ammo. $300.

Being the moderator of a popular guntrading forum and getting an email everytime something is posted and being able to cherrypick- PRICELESS.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Default Best deal ever?!

Well, I have made lots of great deals on "things"... But, the best deal for my
$100.00 would be the Beagle pup known as Goober that still holds our family
record as the smartest one & longest lived one! (4-12-1992 to 9-21-2008)!
