I quit going to them with the expectation of getting any firearms. The bins-o-crap have some good scores many times. Reloading components are a total joke: because they have it they think they can charge 2x as much for it – maybe 2 years ago, buddy……..
Even pawn shops charge OVER retail of new firearms around here. The only decent deals to be had where I live are either through private party sales (now have to fill out transfer paperwork, though) or to buy new through someplace like Sportsman’s Warehouse. They are usually well under MSRP for things. For instance I just got a PMR-30 with 150 rounds for $413 out the door. Several pawn shops had PMR’s for high $500’s/low $600’s….
Used to be that pawn shops and gun shows were where all the screaming deals were.
