Is a gun show the best/cheapest way to get a gun?

31 posts in this topic

I just finished my CCW class, I already have a Beretta 92FS and am looking to get a Springfield Armory xd40 subcompact and add the insight x2l laser and light. Hyatt has the gun for about $500, do you guys get better deals than this at gun shows? I have really started enjoying going to the range.

Should be better deals there.

Just curious, you aren't worried about commodities going bust and panic and riots in the streets? ha ha

With the way Obama wants to run control, buy it off the street, unregistered. All your legal ones are gonna have to be taken "survey" of, and reported on your income tax.

Don't have to report those, but I wouldn't suggest getting caught with them either. :D

For home defense, all you really need is a trusty shotgun.

Gun shows, in my experience, stopped being a place to find bargains a long time ago...at least on firearms themselves. Odds and ends you still get pretty decent deals on.

Gun Shows...only thing ive found them good for is people watching. Of course, that can be very frightening.

Dude ripped me off with a fake ShamWow at the last one i went to...of course it was $2 as opposed to $20

Go to a store called Firepower in Monroe.

This. I go to the one in Matthews and they have great prices on new and used guns. Gun shows are usually the same as Hyatt or more. You can't really get deals at them anymore. You can find clips, ammo cans, and knick knacks for cheaper but usually guns are more. I was looking for a Glock 26 at the last show i went to and they were all way more expensive then i had found on the net or in stores around Charlotte. Plus you can shoot that XD 40 at Firepower, if you haven't already.

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
