Sorry that this is a broad question, but I remember there was a shop based in CA I think that sold really cheap mics here a while back. I bought an NTG2 from him at a great price. I want to say the guys' name was Jack, but may be wrong.
At the time (around April 2010), everyone was talking about how great his deals are, and I thought his thread was even a sticky, but now I can't seem to find it.
Anyways, all that to say, I'm shopping for a new mic and wanted to check out his prices! If anyone has any idea what I'm talking about, please let me know. (I know it is extremely vague to ask "Hey, what's the name of the mic shop in California..." Worth a shot though!)
