    Here's this mornings pawn shop run. Three shops, three hits.

    The top one is an original 1873 Springfield trap door, 45-70, excellent overall with bright bore. Cut down, but what a shooter.

    The next one is an Armi Sport 1863 Sharps sporting rifle (paper cutter).

    The bottom one is a 1851 Navy .44 caliber. Broke but easily repaired.

    If you fellas get tired of me posting just say so and I'll go lay down by my dish.

    I need to move to CO. No plunder anywhere near like that in pawn shops around here.

    Be a sport and share your sources!!

    Wife and I have been on the road since departing Wyoming on Dec. 14th. We travel by 5th Wheel Toy Hauler and carry the bike in the back which we use for 99% of our running around. We've hit EVERY gun shop, pawn shop, flea market and wide spot in the road from Arizona to Texas and don't see nothin' when it comes to BP toys, let alone score three new family members in one stop!!

    Jeez, I can't even find a place to shoot in Texas with one exception in Livingston!! Yer makin' me jealous!!

    The addiction is sickening ain't it? :D Looks like some great additions. I can't be jealous just yet because you haven't told us how much you paid. :p

    It's not applicable to this post but often times I see posts where folks are proudly posting their latest "great deal" or "find" but without an accompanying pricetag it's hard for me to gage if it really is something special or not. Probably just me though because I'm CHEAP! :uhoh:

    At least you have pawn shop with firearms. Most of the pawn shops I checked out don't deal with firearms and the rest of their inventory is stuff I'm not interested in. It'd be nice to at least walk into a pawn shop and fondle their overpriced firearms.
