Re: where to buy used guns

There are alot of those slug guns at good prices now, especially in Southern New York. Alot of areas went to rifle in the past few years, creating alot of sluggers for sale. Do some searches on the gun sales sites by area or zipcode, you will find some deals.

Re: where to buy used guns

gun shows are a good source for selection, but not necessarily price. not sure where you're at but theres a good one coming in january near Pgh. my brother got a really nice 50's model 37 20 gauge a couple years ago there for $315.

Re: where to buy used guns

I frequent gun shops in rural locations. Generally a good selection of used firearms after the seasons are over. The vast majority of my "stash" were bought used, most at the shop near my camp.

Edinboro Outdoors has a lot of used guns. I bet Cabelas could track one down, they can search all of the Cabelas stores nation wide.

Re: where to buy used guns

Get some yellow pages of your neighboring counties and call gunshops and ask if they have them. There is a gun auction that happens regularly in Gettysburg and from what I was told, the prices have been prettty good lately because of the ecomomy.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: where to buy used guns

jun, I can't say this enough, it works... Go to Cabela's gun library at all the stores. Look at Cabela's map for stores and call them ask for gun library guy. They will walk to used guns and tell you what's on shelf. The net carries so many gun's that sold and never take them off. I go and leave my number too. They sell over 3000 guns a year stuff always comein in that don't make the net. Good luck....later

Re: where to buy used guns

In addition to right after hunting season (as mentioned by Denny F), another good time to buy them is just before April 15th when everybody is scrambling to cash for the IRS. And Joe the Logger is right about Southern NY. As more counties shift to rifles, a lot of real good slug guns (rifled barrels, scopes) are hitting the shelves of gun shops or in swap sheets
