Hey nillad10, welcome to the FTF. How about stopping by our "Introductions" area?

What do you mean? The Policy and terms and conditions? I read those when I signed up.

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.

I have seen some broken guns at some local gun shows, but they seem to think they are still worth the price of new ones. Man I never find the bargains
