I've been playing with the idea of another Glock, if money allows. I had my sights set on a G19. I walk into Lynchburg Pawn (Lynchburg, VA.) today to see what they've got. UMC .40S&W at $34.99/50, a used SAR-1 for $799.95, and a boat load of other over-priced hilarity. I step over to the pistol counter and check out their Glock pistols. For sale are a G30SF, 19, 31C, 33, and one of the new Glock 22 models with the wierd...yeah, we'll skip that one.

I proceed to look over the 19 and ask the kindly sales lady about their layaway plan. For there is nothing more gorgeous than having a few guns on layaway. She tells me that I will have to pay 20% down and that I will be allowed a 2-year layaway. Never heard this before! I'm used to 30 days, 60 days, or 90 at the most. TWO YEARS! As long as I pay a little each month, they said I'm good to go. Of course, I'll have it in a few weeks probably, and put another on layaway for a while longer. So, I walk out with a smile on my face and a little piece of paper stating that I owe $400. Life is good.

I don't much see a pawn shop doing this unless they're charging some vig.

Pretty much sums it up I guess. I've got four a month old son, and I rent our apartment, so this seemed like a sweet deal. I asked if there was a catch. Nothing. Just pay some every month and they won't get pissed.

Does buying an AR piece by piece count as layaway? Closest I've ever been. It isn't about being rich, it's called saving your money. Shhh don't tell it's a secret.

What if you see something rare, and you know you can't afford it. You can put it on layaway, and make sure no one else snatches it

No Glock can last for 2 years without blowing up, even if it is just sitting on a shelf the whole time.

I think that's a pretty sweet deal. Locks in the price, no interest. As long as it's a reputable place, I see only an upside.

Doesn't matter if it's Hitler's pistol or a first-run Garand or whatever; if a person can't afford it outright, they might consider working on their personal finances rather than their gun collection for a while.

I'd put guns on layaway...but most of the time I just pony up the cash and live frugally for a while. Of coures if something is really outside my budget I just don't buy it and hope it's there when I have the money.

Layaway? Really? Why don't you just save some cash?

Most of the gun stores I've been to have a layaway policy, but I've never heard 2 years. I usually hear 30 days or 60 days.

I bought two guns on layaway. I wanted them really bad and I knew they would be gone in a week but I didn't have $500 right there, so I put $200 down then, and came back when I had the extra $300 I needed.

The only firearm I have bought on layaway was a new Winchester 9422M right after they stopped production. I only had enough for a down payment at the time. I went back two weeks later and paid it off. They went out of business a few weeks later! Its a really nice rifle with a nice fiddleback checkered walnut stock and I'm glad I bought it even though I didn't have the money at the time. Its one of my few safe queens.

A local gun store that I use had credit with 1yr same as cash. I have bought several guns and a safe using this method. Take the item home with you and as long as you pay it off in 1 year, no interest charges. To bad they still don't have it though.

I do it fairly often, specially when it's a bit more than I'm comfortable parting with at the moment, but it's something I've been looking for. Also, I tend to buy used guns that are often out of production. Last time it was a S&W 1076, I didn't have the full amount so $100 went down and I picked it up a month later.
