My buddy Joe from Iowa is visiting with me for about 10 days and since the weather has turned to crap we decided to hit the guns shops and pawn shops. Sportsman's Warehouse had a Ruger SR1911, full size and asking price was $779.00 and that was yesterday. Today we hit some more gun store and concentrated on pawn shops. We saw a High Standard pistol that looked nice in the countertop and asked to look at it. The nice side was up and the bottom side was really crappy from severe rust and grit. Price was $325.00. One pawn shop had a Ruger SR1911 and they were asking $669.00 which was much less than Sportsmans. Our pawn shops are asking, for the most part, new gun prices and we found very few used guns. Most were selling new ones. I was surprised as I know many of you buy guns at pawn shops but here in Az. there ain't no bargins there. We did find one LGS that had .22 cal rounds and they were asking $12.95 for a hundred round pack of CCI's. Anyway, that's how we spend the last 2 days. So much for the bargins. We came home today with 1 can of Rem-Oil that I use to clean my SR1911's with and it was $13.95. Better luck next time I guess.
