I think part of the problem was that she didn't recognize me as a repeat customer. I buy about 20 guns a year, including two from her store but I didn't deal directly with her. The other pawn shops recognize me as a buyer and quickly give me good service and the real price. In her defense,they were very busy, someone just delivered lunch and she knew I was getting impatient waiting for service. On the other hand, she raised the price on another gun by $150 after I looked at it, (getting ready for tax refunds) and raised the price of an impact wrench my friend was looking at. I'll go back at the end of next week and maybe she will have pitty on me. I have to go back. It had a nice original case.

Couldn't agree more. I have no sympathy for these people, no matter how much hype they get on TV. Even in the days when it looked that I may never get into playing again, and I was short on cash with a baby at home, I would never have considered letting one of these individuals put their hands on my old Yammie. That the ex-wife tried to encourage me to do so somewhat participated in her getting the status of ex.You explained it all when you said pawn shop

Ar the Pawn Shop near me, all the clerks are packing a handgun. The day I was in there so was I and they knew it. I noted one clerk off to the side kept his hand on his gun while I was there ... dummy doesn't realize that such often results in first one being shot. What's the beef, I was perusing a few trumpets that were still in the case? Nothing worth what they were asking IMO and I left. A few days later, that Pawn Shop was broken into and robbed, taking many firearms. Who was subsequently questioned ... you know me, don't you? I was never assigned to IA, but the reality is that POLICE does not spell ANGEL. Fingerprints did bring about the apprehension of the true offenders including all but 2 of the firearms I was told. The only place my fingerprints could have been found was on the front door handle, but the break in occured from the rear. I didn't even touch the case I was looking into.
