    I thought so, although I've been there I hadn't fished it. There are many good trout fishing lakes in Washington and Oregon, but I preferred the steelhead and cutthroats out of the rivers.

    I found a cheap (presumably Yugo) SKS that somebody had painted (the wood stock) black, and used a cheap paint to do it with. It looked horrible. They wanted over $400 for it.

    Did I mention this was in 2012-2013 when SKS's were still dirt cheap?

    Many years ago I found a Bersa .380 marked as a Beretta for about $450.

    When I pointed out that the pistol was not a Beretta but a Bersa( stamped clearly on the slide) Pawntard looked at me and said” it is a rare mis-stamped Beretta, very few made it into circulation and this worth much more”

    I told him to save that bullshit for his regular halfwit customers and walked away.

    I walked through a pawn shop in Gun Barrel City a few months ago. In the tool section they had used Harbor Freight bench grinders with serious wear on them...priced about $70 more than the same model popped up on Harbor Freight's website for.

    Sorry, not buying used crap tools for the same price I could go down the street to Home Depot and buy something decent for. I didn't even get as far as the firearms counter.
