I believe that Little Crow Shooting Sports in Hutchinson could help you out or at least point you in the right direction.

I saw this last night and did't reply, but after thinking about it, the best way that I find the true value of a gun is do a search on some of the big internet auction sights for the gun. See what the same gun of similar condition is going for. I have a gun that is book valued at $18 dollars, but it never sells for anything less than $175 on any of those auctions. Guns are odd that way. If you are looking for antique value or for insurance reasons, you will probably have to go to someone.

Any info on the gun or why you are appraising it?

1876 Smith and Wesson Scofield, MINT condition, thought to be never fired. Not a clone or reproduction, this has been verified by a S & W historian, using the serial number, it was issued to the US govt. I'm only curious to the market value for Sh#ts and giggles. It has been inherited by a family member along with many other collector pistols and rifles, both replicas and originals, but this one caught my attention.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
