Whats the cheapest way to buy Ginnie Mae's. I know you can buy them through "dealers in publicly traded securities" and the minimium direct investment is $25,000. The first broker I looked at wanted a 3.95% front load- There's got to be a better way- I'm not interested in MBS Funds.

I buy the Vanguard GNMA Fund, ticker VFIIX. No load, and very low expense ratio.
