Great snag!! I know everyone now is saying they are going to hit their local pawn shop up, but keep in mind our OP is a regular. And I would bet on many of his runs he gets nothing, but that is like fishing or hunting, you have to be at the right place at the right time to take advantage. Two late summers ago I had dropped my wife off at an event and decided to grab some breakfast one day. Stopped in this greasy spoon and had a really bad for you breakfast with all the heart attack trimmings. So as I am heading toward the car I see a pawn shop and figured I would stop in. See a few guitars, nothing special although they did have a nice acoustic with a flame top that was pretty but nothing I wanted to buy. I start to head to the door and see a golf bag and a set of clubs. The clubs are newer Pings (I30's) and they are left handed (which I am). The bag is a Ping stand bag and seems in pretty good shape. I take a look at them and other than needing some grips they appear to be in good shape and there is a price tag on one of the clubs. The tag reads $60. I walk back to the counter and point at the clubs and ask what is the bottom line price. He tells me that he will let them go for $50. I pull out the wallet and all I have is two crisp $20 bills and a couple of ones as I used the ten spot for breakfast. I made a point of pulling all the cash I had out of my wallet and put it on the counter. "$42 is all I have buddy", I tell the shop keeper. "OK, deal" the guy says as he picks up my cash. I go and start pulling the clubs out of the bag and the guy sees me and says, "that price included the bag, take it all or none of it". I said "thank you" and ran for the door. Those clubs retailed for about $500 used with a Ping bag. I still play them today. So the moral of the story is the same as what Forrest Gump used to say. Pawn Shops are like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are gonna get.
