    Long story short, I wandered into Gander Mountain today because I was bored and walked out with a new Ruger 22/45 5.5" bull barrel and "used" unfired Beretta 92FS for right at $500 OTD.

    I've always been the first to complain loud and long about the horrible prices at GM, but today was a great exception!

    OK, first it's the pic of a Spaten with your firearm in the policically incorrect "Guns and Booze" thread, now it's the two-fer for $500. Apparently aliens have invaded Amarillo. Congrats on taking full advantage of the situation.

    'rillo. Right next to the black 92 was a INOX in worse shape for $550. Go figure.

    I've lived here since before the GM opened, even worked there for a few months. Today is the only time I've seen a good deal there!

    CONGRATS!

    I once found a LNIB Ruger P-89 on consignment at my LGS for $250!:wow:

    Also, at the same shop, a Finnish M-39 VKT/Valmet for $145!:wow:

    More often than not the deals we come across more than make up for the guns we overpay on (KT PMR-30:supergrin:). It' all good.

    I was only looking for a 22/45, but couldn't pass up a mint 92FS for less than half of the price of a new one anywhere else!

    I have to imagine the 92 was priced wrong, and you got lucky. Congrats.

    Yup :supergrin:

    I thought so too, but that was the consensus of two counter guys and the manager, so I whipped out my wallet fast enough to set the seat of my pants on fire.

    Sometimes you do land some good ones. Last year I bought a Bernadelli P018 with box and papers for $350 from Cabela's.
