    Up until about 5 years ago I bought off gunbroker somewhat regularly. The last few months Ive went back and it looks like its ebay all over again. Not many "good" deals to be had anymore.. Im seeing folks paying over new price for used guns. I was watching two 870 supers that you can buy new for $379 are already over $400. By the time you add in a FFL charge and shipping your looking at least another $50.. Maybe folks who cant find anything where they live??

    I haven't seen a run of the mill Rem 870 in many months at any store. Most shops have a great selection of Savage Axis and TC Bolt Guns, but that is about it.

    I talked to a pawn shop owner last week.
    He said he went back an looked at the last 6 months vs the same 6 months last year.
    This year only 34 guns pawned vs 150 last year.

    Worse timing possible for gun buyers/builders.

    If you know exactly what you want (Either a single item or a list of wants) and you wait a few months till the right auction ends at an off time you can do well. I watch for stocks for certain rifles and do ok too. More often than not people are paying over our local retail.

    A single shot NEF pardner 16ga and the bid is $350...holy crap. I know its a NEF(that arnt being made) and its a 16ga but its probably only 8-9 years old. Win 37's in 16ga dont bring that much. Id like to see what the much more rare 28ga version would bring

    Daddy has a 12ga SS H&R. Snuck it outside and shot a bird with it when i was 7-8 years old, knocked the shit out of me. Thought i had gone deaf, broken arm, and Broke cheekbone all at the same time. Didnt shoot it again till i was in hs.

    Yea,some of those H&R's especially older ones that were lighter had brutish recoil.
