Re: Beware of your local guns shops........

This is a little off, but a local shop i stopped into Wednesday. The owner was carrying on about OBUMMER and Biden and Gun Control. Come to find out he as a gun shop owner voted for the SOB's.I turned on looked him right in the eye and said " You deserve what you got, and this is the last time your going to see me"

Re: Beware of your local guns shops........

A lot of people are panic buying and as long as they will pay the price,someone will sell for
that price.

I try to plan ahead and dont grt caught in a bind but sometimes it happens, and I just wait
for things to settle down instead of paying 3 prices.

Vendors that price gouge will pay in the long run, and lose customers or even go out of buisness.

Like you said; dont buy from them anymore/Ever.

Our only store that was rediculous about price gouging ever time they though they could mark something up went tits up last year because they couldn't support the store in the winter when all they had were locals to sell to, they were also the business ALWAYS on the local radio with the buy local be local adds while trying to rape anyone who walked into the store!!
Same thing here, both of the 2 shops I go to localy haven't raised a single price they don't have to, bought a pound of powder the other day that I had to blow the dust off, so I know their not even thinking about raising prices.

One of em has a used XD9 way cheaper than you see them on gunbroker for, they just don't see a need to ask more. Their words "why raise prices? we're making our money as it is, so why piss people off?"

Re: Beware of your local guns shops........

bigngreen, I'm with you on the AR deal,I sold mine to pay for my 2nd NF I had $1200. in it including optics and my shop guy sold it for me on gun broker for $2600. how stupid is that what helped it sold the day after Obummers speech.
My gun dealer apologized he said I put to low of a reserve on it $2500 he said the bidding went nuts and it was at $2600 before they could stop the auction. Me I was happy New NF and some extra in my pocket.

Re: Beware of your local guns shops........

Personally its the one's out there that are Panicing and buying up all the different Ammo that's making it difficult for those that are into Shooting,Target Practicing and Hunting for the Sport...We're the ones that can't find any ammo or have to pay higher prices!


I'll wait til the frenzy dies down and gets back to normal,I'll just watch how much Hunting I do and not do any un-needed target practicing so I don't waste what Ammo I have.

4 Years ago when Mr. Knucklehead got into Office Everyone was buying up ammo and I couldn't even get me an extra box of shells for my Deer Rifle,now we're having the same thing happen again,and if any Gun Shop gouges me on supplies or ammo they will no longer see my business....hows that saying go,"They may have won the battle,but not the War"!

I too have thought about his first 4 year term , I remember when I couldnt find Federal 215M primers if I did they would be around $70 to $80 a 1000. Now I cannot even find them at all . My dad did find some primers while out of town in a little gun shop and they were $70 he didnt remember what brand or size when asked but he didint forget the price.....
