Marty (@22lrfan ) inspires me with the way he's always hitting up local pawn shops, and posting deals he finds. I thought I'd start a thread for us South Mississippi folks.

I primarily follow Dad's Super Pawn, High Caliber Pawn, Friendly Pawn and Cook's. Mostly Friendly, because they're closest to my house, and I pass by almost every day.

I meant to start this yesterday, so some of the items hit the shelves yesterday, and some came out today.

Here are yesterday's (05/16/18) items.

FRIENDLY PAWN, HWY 49, SAUCIER, MS, 05/16/18
Marlin Model 60, .22LR $125
Gun Rifle Shotgun Wood Air gun


Ruger LCP II, .380 ACP $249

TriStar Viper 12 ga. $279
Gun Shotgun Firearm Rifle Air gun


Winchester Mod. 94, .30-30 Win $249

Easy there Cliff! :p
I'm trying, Para40... I'm honestly trying here... as best I can... ;)

I know few seldom or ever get "excited" over Marlin's Model 60... the darned things are almost ubiquitous... and seldom get the "respect" this rifle might otherwise garner.

Marlin has perhaps made "half a jillion" of these "affordable" rimfire rifles since it was introduced in 1960. But for what it's worth, a Model 60 typically offers outstanding accuracy for modest bucks... right outta the box!

At least from where I sit, the wood on the one in the photo looks way nicer than my admittedly and lowly plebeian Model 60 has... :)

For your consideration... I offer this as follows from the "take it for what it's worth" department...

A friend of mine (who happened to be quite successful in life and career wise) once remarked this to me when talking about firearms and the companies who manufacture them...

"I've seen what you can do with a lot of money... now show me what you can do with not so much money!"​

It's not that this man was deeply into "cheap" and "inexpensive" firearms... in fact he owned a firearm collection that would make many of us turn absolutely green with envy. But he apparently did have tremendous respect for what a man's money does and can buy!!!

There's a lesson therein for all of us, as I should think!!!

Marlin's Model 60 is a good "fit" for what he was talking about!!! :cool:

That's my story, guys... and I'm sticking to it!!! ;)

Para40 and Chicknman... I must admit too that I didn't realize until a second or so ago that my initial post about the Marlin .22 was "in triplicate"... :eek:

The MSGO server was evidently "bogging down" and I became somewhat inpatient there... hitting the "Post Reply" button on it a few more times!!! ;)

Clearly, that's my own "mea culpa", so to speak. :(

I can see right now I’m going to have to hit the “ignore” button on Twang Banger.
Lol, you know it’s going to cost you some money and time keeping a eye on southernreliading.

Really like the ideal of a pawn shop thread or sticky for pawn shop finds for us that aren’t close to them.

I like the idea as well. As for Southern Reloading, I was visiting with him yesterday and found out that only Divine intervention will save him.
