Default Black friday

Being that I work in retail( local sporting goods store) I absolutely despise this day. That being said, there are some good deals. Anyone plan on using this day to buy a new toy? I can't decide on a new pistol or a new rifle. How bout y'all?

There are exceptions, but I get my best deals on new firearms during the spring and summer.

After hunting season I always find deals on used rifles/shotguns. People that get laid off right around Christmas will hunt hard. After the first of the year they find a job and need money to get to work. Even if they are drawing unemployment a month of hard hunting will cause them to overspend.

I know some gals that simply enjoy the experience. Half a dozen of them meet in a parking lot, either ride together or plan routes and stores for each group to hit and then meet up for lunch somewhere, etc. They love it. Personally it makes the hair on my neck stand up. I can get the deals I want online all day everyday. You could not pay me to go thru that madness.

We might try for a new handgun. Don't know that its worth the hassle though.
Always have clean socks.

Nope, don't like crowds. There are good deals to be had, but not at the expense of being aggravated all day. I'll be in my tree stand all alone

I avoid it like the plague, there's not a deal good enough in life to make me want to put up with that stampede.

i have never participated in any Black Friday sale at any retailer. i detest large crowds of idiots acting like ill-behaved children. many times, you will find the same item at the same price a couple of months later and won't have to deal with the crowds.

I do my Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping online. Don't care for fighting the crowds either.

Would rather kiss a snake than join the hordes of zombie shoppers. Will be deer hunting until 9 AM, then work.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

Only one I went to, I was in and out in 12 minutes. That being said I will be serving the hoards who are to lazy to figure out how to use there cell phones and come to the tech department to get help. Sorry just being bitter, they canceled my vacation (deer hunting) so I can be there to help "our" customers.
