I shop on Guns America for what ever I am in the market for as far as guns go, If its available it's on there. You can e-mail back and forth with the owners and usually get a good idea of the Item your interested in, I recently got a Ithica Model 87 Deer slayer for 200.00 because the owner was in need of quick $$$$.

DO YOUR RESEARCH if you use GunsAmerica! With proper research you can get some awsome deals there but research things in depth before you commit to purchase.

Thats where I bought my lefty 7STW in fact... did a ton of research before I bought it, had the guy email me TONS of pictures... we agreed on a price and I said ok and sent him the money... he then emails me back and said "Ok its shipped to your FFL, I threw in some RCBS dies for it too as I wont need them anymore". LOL no sir, I dont mind.

I did find out the Rifle had a sharp burr on the chamber that would scratch cases and make it hard to feed... I guess thats why the guy sold it. I glued some 1500 grit sandpaper to a case and worked it back and forth carefully with the bolt until the burr was gone. Lovely accurate and beautiful rifle.

Bought another one from Gunsamerica, a MINT M700LH BDL in .243 ... they were only made in 92-94 ... extremely rare to find. That was probably my best internet rifle purchase ever. Mint Rifle (guy said it only had 33 rounds through it and from the condition I fully agree), 4x12 Leupold and rings / bases. Highly accurate rifle and fun to shoot.

Last night I bought an NIB Ruger Bisley Blackhawk 45Colt for about $90 less than our dealer cost! Great deals are rare on GunsAmerica or GunBroker, but, they do exist. We advertise some guns on GunsAmerica and I know the type of good deals these represent.

I went to a gun show in Montreal this past Sunday but have to admit to being disappointed. It's mainly used hunting rifles, military rifles, and a load of militaria gear. The prices are way to high. It seems like the sellers are living in fantasyland. There's more WWII German regalia than anything else. I don't see new rifles anymore. Maybe there's a law against it now. I don't know. A lot of knives both military and civilian, but not much hunting gear like tents, tree stands or camo clothing. I've heard guys in the states say their shows aren't very exciting anymore either. Possibly it's a sign of the times. Best wishes.

One must have a goal when one goes to a Gun Show. You go to the first one and explore to see just what they have to sell. When you go to the second one have a list and some money. Get what you came for (I've found the first day is the best) then look. Some people say the best time is a few hours before the show closes for the best bargins...Maybe.
