My friend who lives near San Diego went to LV a few weeks ago and stopped off by their store down town. He said there was a line that you had to stand on to get into the shop and you have to give your name. He said freak it and left. They used to have this guy Tony, who I know, who works in a Vegas gun store as their expert. They seem to lose their experts all the time.

I watched that show the other night and some guy came in with a Colt SAA .45 made in 1884. The gun was nickle with carved ivory steer head grips. He had the factory letter and it had been originally shipped to NY. The owner claimed it was owned by some lawman who was involved with the range wars and had an old letter from the guys sister who sold it many years before. That really wasn't enough to prove who owned it, but he wanted around $20,000. The father said it was just a worn every day Colt and he offered him $600. I almost choked. That gun had probably 80% original finish from what I could see and those grips alone, which were original, are worth over a thousand alone. I've seen him rob people before, but it just makes me sick. That was at least a $6,000 gun if not more. The Cajun guys are much nicer.

The Vegas guys can purchase pre-1899 guns without an FFL.

Oop, I got the names of the stores mixed up. I guess the one in Vega is the Gold and Silver pawn. If I'm ever in Louisiana, I'll stop by that one.

I knew that, but who said you couldn't buy antiques? You can still shoot them.

Tex, I saw probably 200+ rifles and shotguns there. As usual in a pawn shop the prices were at the top, but also negotiable. When I start to haggle I start at 50% of the marked price and go from there. If I can't get the item for 75% of marked price or less I don't buy it. I sometimes get lucky and get a really great deal.
They had anything from VERY old weapons to almost new. It was really cool to see 200-300 year old guns.

It's a pawn shop. Sometimes pawn shops get burned, it's the cost of doing business.

I like these shows but, I take these shows with a grain of salt. I also watch Moonshiners from time to time. I know it's as real as a 3 dollar bill, but I still watch it. I find it more comedic than anything. After all Popcorns gravestone says "Popcorn says F*** You". There is also a man named Tickle. I just think some of these shows are hilarious.

Now off my soapbox, Cajun Pawn Stars while fake, is usually more interesting, and accurate than its Vegas counterpart IMHO.
