So I'm staying this year, for the first time ever, and not drinking a drop or buying rounds etc. Figured I'd probably have spent $500 tonight ANYWAY, and it's a beautiful day so I went to my local PA Dick's Sporting Goods to see the sights. Last week added a bolt-action Savage Mark II .22LR that I love (bought for my BOL) and this week, my Italian-engineered beauty. LSS, walked out with my new Benelli Super Nova... But, I did something different. Having already a tactical, short barrel, HD-primary Mossberg 930 SPX with a conventional stock, I decided on a pistol-grip stock, 24 inch barrel with standard, fiber-optic bead sight, fully synthetic... it's pretty sweet. I had thought I wanted a BSN Tactical.. but the awesome young gentleman pointed out, why have two tactical shotguns, both 18", both GRS, etc... My Mossberg is a primary HD tactical but for around $200 can take an entirely different approach with a new barrel. He pointed out, this particular Benelli could certainly be used for HD but also lots of other applications. I fell hard for this one... It's sweet. Here's the best part. A "Tactical" model with the pistol grip goes listing for *over* $600. Mine was listing for $499.99. The dude explained, someone screwed up when doing the Benelli ordering. They ordered a bunch of the exact same shotguns, and they only had like 3 offerings... a HUGE camoed-out pump Nova (had to have a 30"+ barrel) , an M2 Field model for $899.99 (nice but I would rather spend the $1200 for the M2 Tac) and this Supernova Pistol Grip 24" synthetic... He's like, we had a whole bunch of the SAME gun, now there's two identical left.. we want to get rid of them, so they're on sale, $369.99 ... like spring cleaning. OH, and I'm authorized to offer you an additional $30 off at the register... Sweet! AND it would up ringing up at $359.99, and he STILL took the $30 off! Awesome deal!! I feel like I cleaned up on this deal. Also, he had been working on like inventory'ing fishing reels when I came in, the MGR was putting him to work on a slow day with other ppl.. He bent over backwards to help. When I decided on it and went to the register to pay for my NICs check, came back, he voluntarily broke it down, started cleaning, oiling, polishing, etc. everything all up, had me inspect the stuff, gave it another pass, and boxed it up real nice. I'm like thanks man, he's like, trust me, I'd much rather help you out than count Shimanos, lemme go over it again. SWEET. Oh and also, the shelves were BARE of buckshot, couldn't find barely ANYTHING to buy... so he hooked me up with a 5 pack Hornady? I believe HD 00 Buck round and a 25 pack of Remington 8shot target loads, and he was like, "oh, we didn't have the rounds he wanted, or the ones on sale in the circular, give him them both for $4.99 ... " one was like $12.99 one was $8.99 ... AWESOME... Pics to follow, but it's a real sweet boomstick.
