Where’s the best place to get bargains on used guns?

Garage sales? Estate sales? Pawn shops?

Used guns for sale are usually hard to come by at garage sales. Estate Auctions are not usually all that great either. The guns along with everything else is advertised earlier. Many people show up to bid on them and when things get going fast, people get the auction bug and they don’t know when to stop bidding. I have seen many old used guns sell for more than you could buy them new.

Estate garage sales are ok. Those selling the guns often will not have a good idea on the value of the guns when they price them. I also like gun shows. The ones that are set up for the week end. If you go on Sunday, look at the private collectors with the tables off to the side maybe even in a corner. They don’t get the business like the premium tables and often are ready to wheel and deal by Sunday.

Increasingly popular and convenient is buying new and used guns on-line.

    I like gun shows, it makes a great place to seek for guns specially at tight budget due to slumping economy.

    Garage sales are good but they are hard to come buy all that often that sell guns.

    I make the best deals at my local pawn shop. The owner brags about being retired and not needing the money he makes from his business. I guess he ain't lying because, I am constantly finding a bargain for half what everybody else wants for the same gun.

    If it's military surplus guns you're after I recommend http://www.aimsurplus.com and http://www.classicarms.us

    I got a very nice, good condition used Yugo SKS from the first, and an ok used Czech vz-82 from the second.

    Careful about pawn shops. Every single one I've ever shopped at had the used firearms at the list price for a new one. If you're gonna pay that much, might as well get it new.

    CF45 is right – gun shows are a good place to look, too.

    Vangion is also right – I got my Mossberg shotgun at a great price NEW at (gulp, I'm ashamed…) Walmart.

    I have had great luck at pawn shops
    Usually paying around half price, but I have also seen $65 guns selling $1285

    You have to educate yourself to the point that you know more about the gun you are looking at than the shop owner does

    Chain stores are the best they rely on a ten year old pricing book

    Gun shows are your best bet, besides the newspapers. As always, it's let the buyer beware… no gaurantee on used guns. And, of course, you have to know about what you are looking at. There are a number of price sheets on collectable firearms available. Check the Shooters Bible, for starters. Pawn shops can be a bad bet, cause sometimes they just want to unload a gun that already has troubles. Estate sales, on the other hand, can be a gold mine. Laws on this stuff vary state to state, so check with authorities where you live. Take care.

    Don't forget private sales and gun shows. Classified ads online and on newspapers have offers of sales of guns by private citizens so you can negotiate a price with them. Gun shows are also a good place to look in certain states and you can negotiate price there too. You will find a much larger selection at a gun show than anywhere else. In my state VA I would suggest gun shows over the other options.

    Estate sales usually. Pawn shops are trying to make a profit. I've looked at guns at those shops before, and they are usually overpriced. I haven't seen many guns at garage sales, I would thing that would be a good place as long as you know about the gun in question and already have a price in mind.
