I just wanted to post this to announce a couple of dealers doing the " RIGHT " thing ! In my travels I have been all over and have ran across 2 places that at the least commanded my respect. I don't know about anyone else but I'm sick of seeing prices inflated 300%-400% and price gouging masked as " capitalism ". Even sick of the marketplace here with all of a "sudden" members ( lurkers ) asking crazy prices . Yes a reasonable profit OK , inspite of the current frenzy.... Well it is what it is. But when you take an United States flag lay it on the ground and display your weapons on it for sale ???? They need to go away( at least from this forum ).
1st is Larry's gun & Pawn in Huntsville Alabama. It was a mad-house in there every time I have stopped since Thanksgiving , BUT they have 5.7 ammo at 29.99 a box and a limit of 1 per day per customer. I will be honest, it bothered me but when I bought my 1 box yesterday... I talked to Larry at the counter, he was offered $44.00 a box for the stuff and refused. ( the entire lot ).... That would be a substancial profit, instead he opted to limit the purchase quantity ... probably for several reasons.
2nd is Big Dog Outfitters ( aka A & A Arsenal ), they had a 5.7 for sale , yes it was a little high as comparred to the 1150 it was going for but they did sell it at a reasonable price considering market conditions. In other words they did not jack it up to 2k and put it on gunbroker or some other " glorious " web bidding sale place.
I my self would rather support our forum sponsors and small business owners, especially when they keep their prices beneficial. My intent was to help my brother find a 5.7. YES... I am my brothers keeper. We will remember these businesses in the future for our purchases, and above all ..... I like hearing about small business owners NOT gouging the public or at least the intermediate level enthusiasts.
