Pawn Shop Circuit: Pimp Guns & Gasoline
Neil had his chrome Astra Constable back in the case. Apparently someone had placed it on lay away and then failed to pick it up. He had a couple of Glocks in there too. Neil agreed that there are a lot of people hocking items just to get gas money.
Amber had a little S&W .22 caliber pistol called the Escort. It was an interesting pocket gun, in a nickel finish with white plastic grips. Amber was wanting $175 for it, and I decided to pass. Right now, I might need that $175 again real soon. I thought about lay away, but resisted that as well.
All in all, it makes one wonder if these pistols migrated North after Katrina. They are definitely showing up in the pawn shops because of the rise in gas prices.
