    Gander Mountain advertised on the radio yesterday that you get a gift card for 20% of the purchase price of any new or used firearm. I was going to wait until spring to get another XD. How could I refuse this deal? I stopped by and bought an XD9 Tactical for $566 including sales tax. Got a gift card for just over $100. Now the other deal. Looking for ammo to spend my gift card on. I wanted some 40 SW and had planned to stop by Walmart just down the street for it. He offered to sell me the WWB 100 rounds for over $26. I told him no thanks, I was going to stop by Walmart for it. I told him it was about $16. He said Gander Mountain would price match. He called the Walmart and sold me 3 boxes for the same price as Walmart (turned out to be $17.98). I think last time I paid $16+ for it so it has gone up about a dollar here from a month ago.

    The hundred dollar gift card bought 3 boxes of WWB 100, 3 boxes of 50 round 9 mm (2 of which were leadless to try), some patches, and a bunch of 22 lr ammo. It ended up 34 cents over. I managed that with a couple quarters in my pocket.

    I hope to take it the range tomorrow. :)

    Oh, I forgot to mention. This gun must have been meant for me. I called right after they opened to see if they had a 9MM Tactical. Usually special order, but they had one. This was just after 9am. After my lunch appointment I stopped by. Counter guy told me they had it sold - packed up and everything earlier but the guy didn't get the firearms approval.

    I have a XD 9 Service on layaway i'm getting for 534 after sales tax that I am picking up Monday... that'd be real nice if they offered the gift card. Ammo is so expensive at Gander Mountain.

    Did prices of XD's all go up without me noticing? Last I saw you could get a 45acp service model for right at 500. I got my XD40 service for <450 out the door brand new.

    Edit! had my >< signs swapped.

    I bought my wife's Beretta PX4 from Gander last month for that very same reason. Now I just have to decide on what to use the $100 gift certificate on. Also, when I spoke with the salesman that I bought from, he informed me that Gander would be doing the 20% gift cards on firearms until December.

    Have them call Walmart and price match. It worked for me.

    Sounds like a great deal! Too bad some a-hole just totaled my car. Time to save money for a new car.

    Yeah, but the $3700 I'm getting won't get me the car I had. I'm thinking about trying to find one for $2000ish and keeping the rest to drop on a ring for my g/f and maybe a gun for me ;). Know anyone in michigan that wants to sell a car cheap? My only requirements are a) decent on gas b) reliable c) NOT an automatic (real men drive sticks)

    My boss has a mid-90's Oldsmobile that she's selling for $800. It was her recently-deceased stepfathers. You can fly out here, buy the car, and drive it back for less than $2K. Of course, then you have to drive a mid 90's Olds, but you're the one only looking to spend $2k on a car. You can't be too picky! :D

    Walmart doesnt carry near the selection that Gander does though. Unfortuantly I have to just pay more for the ammo because Gander is the only place that carries it.
