There's a Trading section where people tend to start new threads listing what items they would like to buy or sell.

Only the lucky few have a selection of thrift stores with which to source older Nerf items at unfairly low prices.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

Ebay, in the trading sections here, and thrift stores.

Yeah, good luck with the thrift stores one. I've never been able to find any nerf gun at any near me.

My grandmother (you heard me...) works at Goodwill. She says they throw out any guns of any type that come to thrift stores. Now, she holds them for me and buys old guns for $0.25 a piece. She got me an SM750 in perfect condition for a quarter. So, the only way you can get old guns from thrift stores is if you know someone who works there.

If you have the money and the patience to bid on Ebay, do it. NH, is good for trading older blasters and if you find a gun at a garage sale, get it. They're a lot cheaper there and can work well or be a nice parts gun.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. A good nerf gun is like a good woman. It shouldn't require extra lubrication.

That's not true, it just depends on the store management. Ontario Nerfers find all kinds of Nerf guns at a wide variety of thrift stores at really cheap prices.

Negative. We do have goodwills and such, at least in Gainesville (central florida) we do. To what part of florida are you heading?

I have to agree that yard sales are a good place to hunt. Just yesterday I picked up a wildfire, RF20, and a Powerclip for a dollar a piece at a yard sale.

Orlando is the best.

They have EVERY thrift/ flea market store around. At least one in EVERY shopping center, no lie. I just went a month ago, but saw no blasters at the store I went to.

Im not sure what CS is talking about, no offense. I went to value village at least 5 times, they didn't even know what a nerf gun was.
I use ebay. If you want old nerf, go through me im selling some cool old chainguns.
