thanks I know all of that all too well, as I once sold guns myself. We didn't do gunshows, but I know exactly what you're saying. We had customers that would drive 2 hours to save $10, doesn't make much sense to me.PT-Partners said:snip...
But do not think the, for example only here, price of $2000 is all in the sellers pocket. After the cost of the product, cost of overhead (being able to open the doors the next day), the net to the business is often 3% plus or minus a percent or two.
Do not forget shipping and transfer fees if you buy online and have it transferred to your local dealer.
You would do wise to check the reputation of the seller if the deal is too good to be true. Everyone of us knows someone who has been burned if we have not.
You read about the way too good deals all of the time.
Think about the cost of your time and how much you spend looking. I work a lot of gun shows (about 30 a year) and part time in a store and I see the same faces who spend a parking fee, entry fee about 5 to 10 times over a period of 3 to 6 months which equates to maybe 5 to 10 free days and about $150 plus or minus some. All that to save $50. I know there is the thrill of the "hunt" for the best deal and the social contacts at gun shows and stores
When whomever said do you research he was right on but my tag line was learned from my experience (my goof's) and wisdom gained from others (seeing their goof's).
Have fun in your quest for the best.
