Stopped by the local pawn shop to look around and was approached by the manager who, knowing my previous success with purchasing a battered and non functioning 995 (now a like new 995Ts thanks to Mother), asked if I was interested in a non functioning .380. Couldn't pass it up for $50.

Super Deal !

As for haggling, I was walking by the gun counter at Cabela's last week, when I heard the clerk say "so you want the $20 off on top of the coupon ?" and shook his head in a disapproving way, and then proceeded to punch the numbers into his calculator to see what the price would be.

So, I'm sure its a YMMV, but certainly its possible, and more possible the higher the expenditure, and how willing you are to walk away.

I really miiss the pawn shops I went to down in georgia. you never knew what kind of deal they had going. apparently vermont doesn't know what a pawn shop is because there are none around where I live. I'd start one up but I wouldn't be able to sell any of the guns, I'd want to keep them all for myself. 50 bucks for a 380. thats a great find.....

Quite unexpectedly, the Obama Administration has been somewhat slow (reticent some say) to hand out new FFL's. ;)

Thats a great price. As far as haggling, if you pay the asking price in a pawn shop your sucker I bought my 2nd C9 for $70 after talking them down from 110 ( I don't think it had been shot much if ever). Also my roommate haggled with the guys at Cabella's for a used C9 with hard case and they dropped the price 20 bucks.

The fine art of haggling? Say no sale till you bleed.
When blood comes out of your nose, say..."I will take it".
Someone always wants to sell something. Not everyone wants to pass on their bucks to the seller.

I personally hate haggling, per se, but when I bought my pre-owned-but-apparently-never-been-fired 995 classic last weekend, it was at a small LGS here in Georgia. The price tag said $200, and all I did was ask "any possibility of dealing on the price?" The salesman looked over at the store owner, who said, "I'll let it go for $175." So I went ahead and bought it!
