I've been hearing that going to gun shows usually turns up broken guns of all types. They are having one august 27th and 28th at the gulf coast colliseum. Yes my spelling sucks lol. I plan o. Going there to find some broken stuff to tinker with while I do online school stuff and get my business plan figured out. Will be awesome lol
Gun shows are my primary source of project guns. I've baught several broken guns for a handful of dollar bills at a bunch of different gunshows. If you know anything about the guns, dont let the guy selling them know because sometimes they try and hike the price up.
Pistols in particular are easy finds, since a lot of them get forgotten and rust in small spaces. I've noticed the old german saturday night specials are a common thing along with the break-top revolvers that were popular around the turn of the 1900s. Shotguns that still actually work but need a little elbow grease are pretty common, especially in the south. I bought a JC Higgins shotgun not too long ago for less than $100 and it works and shoots just fine, its going to be a gunsmithing school project to refinish the entire gun.
I'm already surrounded by half-dead brainless people already, the zombie apocalypse would just give me a reason to be productive and get rid of them.
