Due to a scheduling snafu I ended up southside San Antonio
cruising around the barrio this afternoon.

I was hitting all the pawnshops looking for deals.

After a few twists and turns I see a big sign GUNS[COLOR=blue]

I started to get exited because I had to pass through a secure gate with cameras to get into the parking lot.

The owner buzzed me in through a door then again through another. ( can trap bad guys in a small enclosed area it seems)

Upon entering all I saw were rows and rows of AK variants.

SKS of all types, .308 heavy barrel sniper rifles

several 50 caliber single shots. a couple Barrets

Case after case dozens of colt, ruger, smith, taurus revolvers new and used.

Looking up I saw hundreds of shotguns and rifles and flat display cases with scopes ranging from $3.00 to $1850. nightvision equipment ammo etc...

This place was paradise. The prices were a little steep but since it was a pawnshop I think haggling is expected.

Ended up picking up a new stock for my 10/22

Are there places like this in other towns?

I've never seen anything like it.

Sounds like that might be worth a visit on my next trip in the area. Got a name for the shop? :D

The prices were so so but since its a pawnshop they knock off 20% if you ask.

I was impressed with the selection most of all.

I need to go back when I can spend more time and drool all over the things I can't afford.
