At the gun show today.
I almost swallowed my tongue when I saw it.
is that in Kalifornia?
That's why I quit going to gun shows. I've seen way too many tags like that to waste my time. I'm not a haggler and just don't play those games.
I went to my first show (Washington Arms Collectors) in almost a year last weekend. I found a used, stainless Springfield Mil Spec with aftermarket grips sitting on one vendors table.
I almost wish I had not spent the $35.00 to renew my membership.
What the hell? You can get a brand new Stainless Loaded for $900. Hell you can get a Champion Operator for a little over a grand.
ouch, Champion Operator's out here are $850-$900
I hate it when gun dealers do this. They can't support any kind of volume, and try to make a large profit on the guns they have in inventory. My father in law, who decided to buy his first handgun (retired military but never personally owned a gun) bought a Springfield Mil-Spec from a smaller dealer in his home town (yes California) and paid $1,000!!!!!!!!! He was very upset when I told him the actual value and informed him that I could have picked one up for him in the $600 range. Face facts, some gun dealers suck and will do all they can to pry extra money out of folks who don't know better.
That's exactly the type of crap I'm talking about.
nowadays, gun show means... haul your store inventories to the show. I quit going to gun shows long time ago.
Nosir. East Tennessee.
The funny thing is that, at the next booth, there was a Delta Elite for I think $950. Wish I had the money.
Price-gougers are everywhere, in both brick&mortar stores as well as gun-shows.
Fair prices, even bargains, can be found in both as well, but sometimes it takes some effort to find them!
I paid 699.00 for mine NIB.
I've voiced this thought before, but I wonder if the prices for some of the name brand guns aren't being driven up because of the influx of cheap affordable guns made in the Philippines.
The people who don't want a one of those, might pay through the nose for a name brand gun.
Careful....somebody is gonna come on here and give you all a economics 101 lesson....
We are all well aware of the good old supply and demand, but that doesn't explain the insane price of the Milspec.

It's called "SMOKIN' CRACK" pricing !!
Thats Ok, a Python just sold locally for 2K and it wasn't anything special. Just a Python.
Key words: GUN SHOW.
What a joke these things have become.
