    The yellow pages are full of them and google has just as many. I know there's more than a few people here from AZ so I'm hoping to separate the cream from the crap and save some time in the process; places you would recommend... or not recommend, as the case maybe. Just looking for guns and interesting stuff.

    Thanks :D

    It really isn't relevant as to the reputatioon of the pawn broker, but more a case of what they are offering and at what price. I walked into a rather sleezy pawn shop and found a matched set of beautiful Parker knives at $15 for the set of 3. In another case I bought a pair of very expensive Leupold binoculars for $5. They were 10x42 Gold Rings and retail for nearly $500.

    Glendale. But seriously, what is it with all the cool gun places being between Gilbert and mesa? Even half my trades originate from down there :scrutiny:

    you ought to keep your eye out at Cabelas then, most of the time they are over priced but I have found a couple gems there, I go there once a month on my "Phoenix route" for work. Yeah we have a ton of pawn shops here in mesa, I don't frequent them nearly enough.

    Another vote for AZ Pawn and Firearms on University/Hardy in Tempe.

    They are great. Great prices. Great selection (except not much C&R) and they still wiggle on the price and make deals with people all the time.
    They're good guys.
    My buddy actually just started helping out at their shop part-time because he started out as a customer and liked it so much haha.

    I buy all my firearms there (if they have them in stock). If there is a lower price somewhere else they will usually match it.

    They also go to estate sales and police trade-ins and get all kinds of random guns. I saw one they had on layaway for a guy they got in estate, it was a WWII or older 1911 that some jack-wagon had tried to reblue and the finish was beat up, but even at that it was still cool and the price was great for what it was.
