Living in Minnesota has many advantages – beautiful scenery, many outdoor activities and a wonderful summer climate. But then there is winter – a welcomed season for skiers and snowmobilers, but also a bear for managing snow, ice and the typical winter commute. It’s not unusual to get pummeled by a fast moving blizzard between the times you go to sleep and when you awaken, leaving your driveway and roads buried in snow. While an armada of snow plows sets out to clear the roads in the wee hours of the morning, you still have to unearth your vehicle and clear a path to that road.
We all need and use tools of some type, either in our jobs or for those things that need some manner of occasional repair or maintenance. Some might be specialized, as in an automotive mechanics line of work, or general purpose, as you would find in an average homeowners tool chest. Depending on the type of tool, they can be fairly inexpensive or high in cost. The great thing about most tools is that they last a very long time. Many get passed down from one generation to the next or from the jobsite to the home. Some tools may fall into disuse as they are no longer needed, which is where Metro Pawn & Gun comes into the equation. We offer cash in pawn and loan, or outright purchase, for your tools. Don’t need those old sockets any more? Bring them in and we’ll work out a deal. Power tools, hand tools, special tools – we like all tools!
“Pawning” is a process in which you bring an item into the pawn shop in exchange for a cash loan. For example, you might pawn a gold ring as collateral for a $150 loan. If you repay the loan by a predetermined date, you can retrieve your gold ring. The loan repayment amount will include interest and fees that are typically regulated by the state. You also have the option to extend the repayment time frame, although this will incur continuing interest. If you fail to repay the money on time, the pawn shop takes ownership of the ring and can offer it for resale. A large percentage of pawned items are reclaimed by their owners, but some are forfeited and thus provide inventory for the pawn shop to sell. Pawn shops also purchase items outright to resell, which is another way to provide clients with the cash they need and to acquire inventory for the store.
Tools are an integral part of every day life. We use them to construct, assemble and maintain nearly every aspect of our environment – from our homes to our vehicles to our appliances and our furniture. They repair what is broken, and improve what is not. Life is made easier when tools perform otherwise strenuous or laborious tasks. Whether general in their purpose, or specialized in their function, there is a tool for just about any job you can imagine.
Aside from being one of the most prolific weapons of the modern age, the shotgun is also one of the most versatile guns you could ever own. You can hunt just about anything with a shotgun, use it for home defense, military or police operations, partake in various sporting applications such as skeet or trap shooting, or just have a ton of fun shooting at the range. Ammunition is readily available and relatively inexpensive compared to other specialty calibers.
Home electronics have come a long way since the days of the cassette player connected to an analog stereo amplifier and a pair of speakers. Today’s home electronics are a fusion of computer technology, Wi-Fi, streaming media and multi-channel, multi-room digital applications of every sort imaginable. Surely you would need to purchase such items at a specialty audio/video establishment, right? Well, you can, if you want to pay top-shelf prices!
The word "rifle" originally referred to the pattern of grooves called ‘rifling’ cut into the inside of the barrel. Rifles are used in warfare, defensive operations, hunting and shooting sports. At Metro Pawn and Gun we stock a large variety of rifles, including bolt action rifles, semi-automatic rifles, sporting rifles and collectible or antique rifles.
Whether you are a buyer or a seller, the most important piece of information for you to know is the true value of your item. Without an accurate assessment, you could be overpaying for a purchase, losing money on a sale, or be so overpriced that no one will be interested. A Pawn Shop can be an excellent resource for determining the true value of a wide range of commodities.
There's a reason why many pawn shops have a large assortment of shotguns and other types of weaponry. Weapons are often one of the best things to pawn or sell; they have known value, they are usually fairly expensive, and you don't usually need them in your day-to-day life. But because a shotgun is a weapon (even if it's a collector's item), you need to do some special preparation.
Are you concerned about your handgun's care and safety? That means that you're a responsible gun owner. Gun owners should be constantly ensuring that their guns are in a safe place and that they've been properly prepared for storage. Here are a few tips to follow.
