I've been to a lot of Gun Shows in Ohio and have yet to find broken guns, Hand or Long, for sale or swap. The only parts you can buy are for M-1's, AR's or 1911's. I fact I just returned home from a "Show" in Niles, OH.
I know it sounds hokey but I wear a vest with " I buy broken guns and gun parts" painted neatly on the back to gun shows and trade days. A lot of people have broken guns but don't know what to do with them. Ive been a gunsmith for 30 years and got alot of my parts and part guns this way.
Keep up with the trends, avoid the fads, take your time and do work you can be proud of always
