The rare valuable stuff is out there. The chances are pretty slim though that a rare and very valuable gun (a sleeper) will be brought into the store by someone. The chances of finding something like that is better if one keeps looking on line every day or at every antique gunshow that can be visited easily. The Internet has made it possible for me to find Three very rare trapdoors, but it was the education about trapdoors that I picked up over 45 years that enabled me to recognize them. That I got from fellows on this site (thanks Dick Hosmer) as well as others and books on the subject. Lots and lots of books.
