How many yard sales do you go to a weekend and do you find many guns? I look at the classifieds and find yard sales. Last weekend I went to one and found a strongarm for $1. Today I went to 40+ and didn't find anything(there were a lot of multi family yard sales). What guns have you found at yard sales?

I haven't really had any luck with yard sales.

I do remember however, when I was in Drumline in high school (way before I got into nerf), we had a huge rummage sale. we opened up at 6 am and the first thing that was at the registers were the nerf guns. We were all quite baffled as to why anybody would want nerf guns.


there must have been like 30-40 blasters. now that I'm a nerfer, every once in a while I think about how I missed the opportunity. I remember there being like 5 X-bows (some broken), 3 Astorms, LnLs, EaBs, a few sharpshooters I and II... you get the idea.

The local Boy Scout Troop just had a rummage sale today, and there was NOTHING. It was all crap.

One time, my friend got two kinda trashy Secret Shot 1s at a garage sale for like $3. That's about it though.

I go to about 5-10 sales weekly. I've been quite lucky to in my yard sale searches. I've picked up an Arrowstorm($2), a Chainblazer($1), a Master Blaster($0.50), a Crossbow($2), and an Eagle Eye($3). I was also given a Sharshooter 1 that was "broken." I took it home and opened it up and found that the trigger spring was off track, so I put it back where it belonged.

By the way, Goodwill's are a great place to find guns.

I got my Crossbow at a yard sale for $2 also. I went to a Goodwill near me and all they had was a broken at2k.
