I've bought one gun from a pawn shop, most of the best deals I've found have been on several on-line forums. Pawnshops are tricky bests and I've generally not shopped them. Budsgunshop.com usually has some pretty good deals as well.
Anybody give me some ideas where to look to find used handguns that would not be a normal outlet like a gunshop etc...? Just wondering where you have gotten some of your best deals from. Anybody ever buy from a pawn shop or anything similar?
Thanks VAM. That looks like a great site and some great prices. It's only a short couple hr drive for me so I may have to go check them out in person.
I like to check out gunbroker.com. They do have some used and new guns on there.

Just keep looking and you'll find what you want.
I've always had my best luck by knowing exactly what I wanted and what I wanted to pay before starting to look.
Your local range. Our range has bulletin boards and folks post FOR SALE ads all the time. Great way to also buy guns if you like the keep Big Brother in the dark of your habits.
