    I've never seen a gun at a yard sale that cheap. About $40 is the cheapest I've seen.

    Congrats, that is a heck of a deal, sometimes you are in the right place at the right time, when someone is wanting to get rid of a certain gun.

    We never - well, almost never - see guns at tag sales in this part of the world. The exceptions to that I can remember in two decades of tag-saling were an elderly rich man thinning out his collection - all custom heavy caliber rifles and hand-fitted English shotguns, and none tagged at less than mid-four figures. (And worth every penny; just out of my price range by a factor of ten!)

    At another, there were a pair of thoroughly battered to the point of you-couldn't -pay-me-enough-money-to-load-and-fire-them .22 Mo-Skeet-O smoothbore single shot bolt actions the sale operator wanted $75 apiece for. I told her she ought to pay ME $75 and I'd take them off her hands; that in the condition they were in, they were scrap metal.

    The third was a sale with a pair of French pinfire revolvers that looked like someone had fished them out of a well after they'd been sitting on the bottom for 20 years. They'd been cleaned up but they were badly pitted inside and out. Strictly wall-hangers. The operator wanted $300 for the pair. She was mightily miffed when she asked what I'd pay for them and I told her, "In the condition these are in, nothing. You can't get pinfire ammo any more and I don't think they're safe to shoot in any case."

    We never see guns you could take to the range and shoot at sales around here. You do better shopping the bulleting board at the gun club.
