Default Project gun

I'm looking for an old gun of some sort that I could restore and clean up. I am pretty experienced with guns and I would like to be able to say that I brought that gun back to life. As of right now I have a budget of 80 bucks and I'd like to either do a pistol or a 12 gauge. Any ideas or tips?

There are tons of well worn, inexpensive shotguns/rifles out there to be had...

I'd restore a long gun every time over a handgun...more steel, more wood, more fun...

I'd say to check out some of your local pawn shops but if they're anything like they are around here, they'll try to rip you off... I was done with those gyp joints years ago...

Most of my local LGS's get tons of old stuff in all the time, maybe check some of yours?
