    So I thought that I would have this gun by now, but it's looking like I never will. I put a 99% CZ40B on layaway and have $380 or so left on it. Things got tough and now it looks like I won't be able to pick it up. I have a month left, but it doesn't look good. I will have lost $140 on it. I'm super bummed out.

    Credit card......loan........sell something.......if you have an ebay account and a paypal account, you could probably raise $380 in a couple weeks, just selling things around the home that you don't use anymore..........

    Very sorry to hear

    The 40B is a fine pistol.

    Is it a shop you do business with often? If so go talk to them. I do alot of business with a local shop and they extended my layaway on a Ruger SP101 a few weeks and didn't even charge me interest.

    This.

    See what you can do. The 40B isn't a pistol that comes up for sale all that often.

    There must be something you can work out.

    At least ask to use the $140 as store credit so you don't lose.

    If nothing else see if they'll keep the gun and give you the $140 in store credit. Atleast you would get some ammo out of it and not just lose the money.
     
  9. I second what these guys are saying - go talk to them and see if they will help you out someway, either an extension or store credit. I'm fortunate enough to know the owner of my local gun shop.

    Most shops will work with you in some way.

    I would guess that if you can continue to keep paying something regularly they would extend the layaway if they are decent people.

    Sorry you're on hard times and may miss out on a purchase, but check your state's layaway laws, you may not lose all your money either.

    Is it an online dealer or local?

    It's a local dealer. I have until Aug 5 so I'm going to see what I can do, but it doesn't look good right now.

    Hell, dude, go to a temp agency and work a little part time after your regular job or on weekends. You can definately make the $380 in a months time, without too much effort!!

    They can't just keep your money if you can't finish paying for the gun.
    If they say they can't give it back or quote store policy, or even offer you partial store credit. They are full of fecal matter.

    They can however charge you a fee for restocking and whatnot.

    Go in there and feed them a line about whatever you want. Just don't roll over and let them keep your money.

    I would never buy a thing from that dealer again.

    That's ridiculous.

    Do you know something that this thread doesn't say? From what I read here, the dude put a gun on layaway, now he is deciding that he cannot pay for it. It does not appear that he has tried to make any additional special arrangements..... How does this make the dealer a bad person? Again, if you know something additional that makes it true, then that is ok, but I wish you would share. :)

    To me, if you put something on layaway, you are saying to the business owner, "hey, I am going to buy this, please extend me some time so that I may do so." If you later decide that you cannot pay for it, then it is you that have made a blunder, not the business owner. Like I said earlier, there are things the dude could do to come up with the money if he wants it bad enough. I hear enough whining from the welfare recipients at my job about how life has not handed them everything they want.

    Huh....that sounded a bit like a rant.... :wavey::embarassed:

    He should be able to use the cash towards something the store.

    No shop I frequent would just screw a guy out of the money. It was a layaway, yes, but things happen sometimes.
