don

See that shows the differences in prices that people are seeing and some are even paying to get their hands on an XDm... And hence why I decided to take the time to make this post. people really wont this gun and some dealers have standars and sell it for what it should be sold for and others just want to sell it for what the market can bear. WHICH is quite a bit in this crappy economy but people will always want to arm themselves or at least until obama says we cant

I guess we'll have to agree to disagree on this one. IMO, if a gun is named the "Xtreme Duty", time tested products like Remoil and Hoppe's should be more than enough to keep it running in top form. I am an old school thinker though.

Your right, in my experience there are quite a few dealers out there that have standards, but then you have the others that just want to exploit the market, I guess everyone has to make a living and there is some poor guy out there uninformed enough to pay what they want, but damn....selling guns at $200 over MSRP is crazy.

These guys are benefiting on most people not knowing how easy buying from somewhere like gunbroker is. That's fine though, because when average gun buyers catch on, people are gonna remember who was gouging during this period.

Yes, Your right they WERE good products.... but do you buy your wife flowers from the grocery store or from a flower shop... Because if you can't tell the difference, trust me... She can!!! It's the same for my guns, I treat them with the good stuff not just something that will GET'er done

yeah, and they'll be scratching their heads wondering why they all the sudden lost all their business

... there's... more...?

$40 for a decent OC holster (Blackhawk Serpa)
$50 for a decently-stiff gun belt (makes draw MUCH much better)
$80 for a 'concealment' vest (all of the above for entry-level IDPA shooting...)
$10-20 for a decent IWB soft holster
$10 snap caps for dry firing, loading, and grip-testing drills
$40 MidwayUSA bag to put all one's gear in
$120 Concealed-carry permit certification class
$10 Fingerprinting
$80 Conceal-carry permit application fee
$5 one-time buyer permit (that I won't need after my CCW gets approved but it takes 3 months)
$40 for one-year range membership (so that I get $20 off of the CCW class and $5 off per range visit, which are...)
$10/ range visit.
$180 2 days IDPA/defensive shooting class ( my draw is MUCH faster as are my double-tap speed and accuracy)
~$500 in ammo purchased


I am not sorry I spent any of it, but I certainly spent much more than I thought I would at the onset. I was hoping to be all in after 6 months for <$1000 and I am looking at nearly twice that.

Dang.

Wow, yeah that's the next step I'm heading towards too! USPSA though but some of the same needs that's for sure. CWP's are hard to get around here and the local sheriff.... he don't like me none too much. Lets say that me and my 66 mustang he been framed a few times.... And the only thing they ever caught me doing was a little chirping of the tires when I was turning left from and up hill stopped position in a light rain, and i got a reckless for that!!!! yeah, wow, they dropped it to a lesser charge but I even told the officer that he could TRY and drive my car around the same turn and see if he could even do better. i know he wouldn't have been 350+ plus ponies in a very light car with a nasty cluth and a 4 speed toploader. emmm

I forgot to include snap caps! $18 for 5 A-Zoom from ebay. Where did you find them for $10? Metal primers?
