I do my best to support local businesses. Small operations don't get the wholesale prices that large companies do, so they will always be more expensive. The real question is how much is it worth to you to have that local business be there when you need it?

I completely understand that money is tight and spending it on guns, although fun, is still an expensive proposition. See if he can get you closer in price and go with the local guy if you can.

Totally your call, but that's my two pennies worth.

Thirty three years ago I went into my LGS, Bill Laughridge's shop right about the time he started calling it Cylinder and Slide. I wanted to buy The Lovely Mrs a 94 Winchester, they had them on sale at the Coast to Coast store for $75. I told him I'd rather buy it from him if he could come close. He said "I can't buy them for that. Go get it." But he was pleased I gave him the opportunity.
