    Went today just to look around ended up getting a Ruger LCP in .380 at the gun show. On the way home I stopped at Wal-mart to get some ammo but they didn't have any .380 so I ran across the street to Dick's. As I was waiting for the gun guy to finish with the customer before me I noted the Remington 700's were on sale for $459.99 after a $40 mail in rebate. Asked to take a look and what calibers he had in stock. He said they had .223 .22-250 and .308. I've been wanting one in .308 so I said fuck it I'll take it, here is where it gets good. Since they only had a floor model let the manager agreed to give me 5% off, and it came with a 3x12 Remington scope with rings and bases for free. When I went to ring up it rang at full price $599.99 and he said well that's wrong and over rode it to $459.99, then took 5% off making it $436.99. I didn't mention that the price was after rebate, he then handed me 2 copies of the receipt and the rebate form, and asked me if I wanted a Dick's card since I had spent so much I would get a free $10 gift certificate as well. So after rebates and gift cards I end up paying $386.99 for a brand new Remington 700 with scope, rings, and bases. :mamoru:

    And as a kicker he carried it out to the car for me. My buddy who was with me saw all this happening and said to him I'll take one in .22-250 please. He gave him the same price he gave me for a new one since he figured it was fair. I'm sure someone is gonna get an ass chewing in the morning.

    Also, how was the gun show?
    Was it as shitty as normal or was it decent?

    i kinda like my lcp, but mine has some extraction issues (not terrible but more frequent than i'd like for a carry gun) but it's still very new and needs some more rounds through it to see how it does. plus it's point and shoot, the sights are fucking useless.

    let me know if you have any extraction issues with yours :)

    Decent, a few deals to be had but nothing to amazing. The gun show was a last minute plan or I would have let you know.

    I'm gonna put a few hundred through it tomorrow and see how it goes. Of course the sights are useless its a pocket gun.

    my lcp took a couple hundred rounds through it before it loosened up a little and now i have zero FTFs or any shell ejection issues. the little fucker sucks to shoot so putting that many rounds through it to was a pain in the ass.

    i'll just have to search the earth to find more .380 ammo to break it in i guess lol.

    i like the gun but until it quits having hiccups it won't be a daily carry obviously (except as a back up)

    They the ones that had the Taurus PT 1911 AR for $579.95 right by the door? I loved that 1911 but not sure I trust Taurus and they wouldn't budge on the price at all. I offered as high as $550 cash and they said no. Guess I will have to just get the Springfield arms 1911 I have been eying.

    Dick's had probably 40 boxes when I was in there.

    As far as how it shoots, I only got to put about 30 round through it yesterday as I was also cooking a whole hog at the same time and got super busy. I had zero issues at all and found it to be a fairly accurate little gun, they only thing I don't love is the 12 mile trigger pull, but with no safety it's probably a good thing on a pocket gun.

    I aint paying $375 for that, seems like a waste to me, then again I get all the training I could want for free on handguns. Friday I am heading to the range and will shoot a probably around 500 rounds for free.

    Don't really care but enlighten me. I assume some spec ops or swat team since you said "for a living".

    If he is, then good job on letting that guy ring up the lower price when you knew it was wrong. :ugh:

    Or the range master :rofl:

    What's wrong with letting him ring it up wrong, that is his fault not mine, it was $40 not $400.

    What does it have to do with running a range out of business. We are talking about buying a rifle at dicks and the guy range it up for $40 less that he should have.

    Yeah the range masters at a police department range. :wiggle:

    I'm not saying the shooting class is a bad thing, just for me not worth the cash.
