Pawnshops in this area suck. Most of their used guns actually cost more than I could purchase the same gun new. After a few hundred trips one tends to just keep riding. They also grade the guns very poorly. If it's all in one piece it's graded as in new condition.
A couple years ago a local pawnshop that has fair ammo prices had the exact 20 ga Mossberg I was looking for. The gun was priced at $215, it was in fair condition. They called it like new condition. I could get the same gun for $215 NIB. I had to go to that area a few days later so I brought my Mossberg that is in new condition. I compared it to their gun and started picking it apart. The Pawnshops response was to call me unrealistic. Yet, I had a 15 year old well cared for gun to show them. Usually when a seller calls a buyer unrealistic, it's the seller that is unrealistic.

I do not shoot with my hand; I shoot with my mind. He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father.
I do not kill with my gun; I kill with my heart. He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father."
