does anyone know a real good gun shop that will have a px4 storm in stock? I just found a few dealers but 1 thinks it will cost 30 dollars to ship a 2 pound box(tops) from georgia to virginia and another from west virginia is trying to charge me tax???? do these people have lead poisoning or something? also what is the deal with charging a credit card use fee? oh i'm sorry they use "cash discount fee" gimme a break how do they use that excuse on auctions??? if there are any gun dealers on this site, please enlighten me with your reasoning.

GOUGE the Public. I was trying to buy a Beretta Cx4 but price is up about $250 from a month ago. The 3% CC Fee is what they have to pay the bank. Use PayPal and put your CCard on their as the way to pay. No fee to you! Ask up front for cheaper shipping. Negotiate with them. If you can!

I hear you on gouging, but do you know it is illegal to charge that fee? I use to work for a finacial institution that sells the CC machines. yes they are charged a fee, about 2.5 to 3 percent but it is against policy to charge their customers the fee for use. they can have their account cancelled. calling it a cash discount reflection is thier bullshit excuse to charge that fee. you dont see Walmart, Target etc.... or anyone else for that matter doing this because they know it's illegal. these dealers live in their own world. i just got an email right now saying i was crazy to question that 30 dollar delivery charge. I use to sell on ebay and i shipped out nintendo wii's (10 pound box) to CA for 12 dollars, how do you figure a dinkly little gun costs more????? also paypal is liberally connected with ebay. if a dealer is caught using paypal for a firearm purchase, they will lose their account. this is bullshit too, what does paypal care? those theives get a 5 percent cut of all transactions!!!

sales tax

Just discovered this myself. The local FFL dealer collects sales tax on an out of state purchase, something they conveniently 'forget' to mention until it's time to pay up. So you add the shipping, add the FFL 'fee' and add the sales tax, and add the 3% 'card fee' (They do get charged this by the banks for using a credit card. I understand that, but no one else in retail does this.) and add it all up and I may as well go local in the first place. I'm looking for an AR-15 and I'm within $200 of local, plus local is a sure thing. I walk away with it. Mail order and I wait and hope I'm not being scammed. Of course, if they don't have any that's another issue. (BTW: Got my 1000 9mm today.)

thats what im saying, but it is illegal to pass that charge to the customer. i dont know how it got started and why everyone accepts it. if everyone complained to those dealers enough, it would stop. i aggree with the buying local as well. i just looked at the prices online that snake supplied for a px4 and yes it's about 50 dollars cheaper but by the time it gets here im paying 50 dollars more then local WTF?!!

YOU ARE 100% RIGHT

ON ANY OF THESE AUCTION SITES AFTER ALL THAT IS SAID AND DONE THERE REALLY IS NO DEALS.MOST OF THE TIME LOCAL IS BETTER, YOU MAY HAVE TO WAIT LONGER, BUT ITS WORTH IT. ALSO WE HAVE GANDER MOUNTAINS OPENING UP AROUND HEAR AND BECAUSE THEY BUY IN BULK SOME OF THERE GUN PRICES ARE VERY INVITING.FOR INSTANCE I CAN GET A wALTHER P22 FOR 249.00 BEFORE TAX NOT BAD. THEY HAVE 4 DAY SALES ALL THE TIME LIKE THIS.

Wish gander were here

on the left coast. Sportsmans Warehouse is here, but even though they are an FFL they refuse to do transfers. They've got a zillion hunting rifles, and plenty of handguns, but they roll their eyes at an AR-15. This is what it will be like in a year everywhere if Obamanation gets his way.
