I picked this up at my local shop where I need to stop going to! Went in intent on one and walked out with three…

1st S&W Performance Center 44mag
2nd S&W M&P 9mm
3rd Kel-Tec 10 shot 9mm (For wife for now, until she really picks what she wants)

I bought 4 on the same day last time I was there in Nov 2010… My wife says once every 6 months is STILL not long enough in between visits!

What kind of discount do you get when you buy in bulk like that?
For this deal I got the 44mag, which can be found at the $1,275.00 price and the M&P was listed at $569.00 and I am not sure what the Kel Tec was it is the 10 shot not the 7shot model so I had to be right around $300 give or take a few...

Then I also walked out with 1 box of 44mag ammo and 2 boxes of 9mm
All for the grand total tax and all out the door................................................................$1,875.00 even

He wrote the sales slip up as 3 guns "package" total not a price on each one...

So it was pretty good, I told him if he got it $1,850 I would take it, so the extra $25. did not mean anything and then even less after the 150 rounds of ammo... The sticker on the 44 mag ammo alone was $33.00

I was happy and I am sure he made some money, just not much! Now my wife says I can't go back until Christmas time.... I was just there in Nov 2010 and spent $2,350... Hey at least she did not say I could NEVER go back!

I told him in Nov, IF you treat me right on the prices, I will keep coming back and send people your way. I also said I am not a guy that will stop in every week or two looking taking up your time and then not buy anything for a while... I told him the truth, I will walk in, know what I want and why I want it... I will always buy multiple at one time and a few times a year. And again all you have to do is make it right for me...

Now I will say most independent guns shops will work with you like this for big buys... Big chain store gun dealers not so much...

But this is a local shop and good store to buy anything outdoors from and he hires local people to work for him. So that is important to me...

You not only bit the bullet, you swollowed it hook line and sinker. So, the saying goes. You must be getting a nice assorted collection by now $4,200 later. You have to love your wife for not complaining. :)

I am all for that! Never buy from big name stores like Bass Pro and so on because they mark whatever you want at full retail price. I purchased my first XD 45 from Bass Pro and guess what...no ammo. I can not like a store who will not sell ammo for any TOOL that is out there. The will not sell 5.56. So please go support your local gun store and buy from them!:twisted:

Agents Callahan and Degeorgio of the ATF will be at your residence tommorw at 10AM. We request that you be present and have documentation for the weapons you've recently purchased and have those same weapons available for inspection. We appreciate your cooperation in the ATF's ongoing effort to discourage the hoarding of firearms and deny average citizens of the opportunity to own some fine firearms. BTW, we will also be auditing your stocks of ammunitions in various calibers in our ongoing effort to make ammunition more readily available to the shooting public.
