Hey guys, im looking at buying a few firearms. :)

9mm Beretta 92F
12g Mossberg Pump, 500 or 590SP with full stock(no pistol grips here)
Lee Enfield .303
Also considering a deer rifle with a 30.06 cartridge. (recommendations?)

What kind of cash would you be willing to spend on each of these items?

Being a canadian has limited my buying options, and am also looking for any retailers in canada, since to my understanding Americans can not legally sell to canadians. Any reputable retail leads on this side of the border would be appreciative. :)

peace

If you are willing to buy used and are not rigid with manufacturer, check the pawn shops. Most of what you are looking for can be found there. Below I copied and pasted what you are looking for. In bold is what is I have bought a pawn shops and what I paid for it.

9mm Beretta 92F Ruger P-95dc $235 in box with 2 15 rd magazines (9mm)
12g Mossberg Pump, 500 or 590SP with full stock(no pistol grips here) Winchester model 1400 defender ($140.00)Lee Enfield .303 Mauser k98 ($ 80.00)
Also considering a deer rifle with a 30.06 cartridge. Remington Sportsman 74 auto w/ scope, sling and iron sights $227
All but the mauser were bought in the last 10 years. The 30-06 I bought in May 08.

A lot of deer have fallen to the .303 Enfield. Why would you need another rifle in the same category? personally I'd put the money dedicated to the Enfield and the deer rifle together and get one to do both jobs...

I don't think you can buy firearms from pawnshops in Canada. I've never seen one there.

Ditch the Beretta and get a Glock, more reliable.

unless you are well versed in firearm mechanics, stay clear of pawn shops. You're not really gonna have anyone there that will take good care of it or know when theres a problem.

I am with Allan. The Enfield is one fine rifle that can do many jobs including any that a 30-06 can. Mine are in .308 but I can appreciate the worksmanship.

My Glock did come w/ a lifetime warranty, not that I'll ever need it.

The Mossberg 4x4 is a decent rifle, but go with .308, more common caliber that 30-06

I am very happy with a Mossberg 100, so I can endorse it. If they put the same care into the 4X4 then it is probably just as good.

for the beretta..um i have some lent in my pocket...lol really probably no more than $350

shotty about 3-400 and for the .303, i think there going for around 200 at our store.

the 30-06, depending i'd say about 4-500.

For the pistol...stay away. Used it in the military. for the price that thies go for, you can get a used Springfield XD.
shotgun-good gun but I own a rem 870 so i cant say much about it.
.303-is great but have no real experience
30-06...The Rem. 700.
