Ok, here is a question that might spark a few stories:
What is the cheapest price you have ever paid for a gun or what is the best deal you have ever got on a gun?
Least expensive firearm that I own is a Savage .22 semi-auto that I got for X-mas when I was 17, it was going for 100 bucks or so at the time at Walmart.
Least expensive firearm I bought myself is a Mossber 500 12 gauge Persuader for $220, or for handguns my Rossi 461 snub nose .357 for $250
Actaully, I have 5 firearms in my posession that were under $300 dollars at purchase. Although for me 2 of them were technically free.

Seven bucks for a really nasty Enfield .303 at Rockaway Sales in probably 1963....
Free, was the cheapest. I was give an AMT .380 SA back-up. The best deal...
Not sure if it was the Dan Wesson .357 for $135.00 (NIB), the Ithaca police special 12ga. for $150.00 (Mint cond. L.A. Cnty Sheriff's gun), or my Iver-Johnson .22 with scope for $75.00 (Great cond., looks like the M1 carbine). If you look around & talk to people, it's amazing what may come your way...

Lightly use Crown Grade (like a wingmaster wood quality) Mossberg 500 12 gauge and 28" barrel for $75 when Galyens when out of business and bought by Dick's.
I have picked up several guns in 200 to 250 range and all have been great! So, you don't have to spend big money for a quality gun just need to look around.

Free AR-15, courtesy of my dad. But I won't count that, since it's not something I PAID.
So far, cheapest gun for me has been my XD45 at $545.
$39.97 for a M44 Mosin Nagant.

hmmmm.....probably my Russian Baikal over/under that I paid $250 for.

I got a nice used Ruger P95 recently for $175. Also, picked up a nice used Smith & Wesson 4043, marked Memphis PD, for $264 at Gander Mountain (of all places!). That included tax, I thought that was a VERY good deal.
Slow is smooth.....smooth is fast.
If I can't count the Ruger Ranch Rifle & 1000 rds. of ammo my father-in-law gave me, I'd have to say the bolt action Marlin .22 I bought for $50.

I picked up a NIB Huglu 20 gage single shot shotgun for $50. It was such a good deal I bought a second one. It shoots great and folds in half.
