I got a sale ad in the mail on Saturday from a local gun store (Adventure Outdoors in Atlanta area, current inventory 8,000 guns). The Sig 522 is in stock and on sale for $449. The S&W M&P 15-22 is on sale for the same price with the Colt AR-15 22 going for $549. If I remember their policy right they will do gun transfers/phone sales, but only to in state buyers.
The gun that caught my eye in the sale wasn't a 22 rifle, it was the Model 29 Nickel $679.99, in stock and factory new.
There is in life perhaps one fleeting moment when the courage, dedication and resolve of one man gambling against all odds will alter the destiny of nations.
