how can they sell guns and stay in business if they constantly sell over MSRP and claim they can't sell for less?
and what if you have a problem with a gun you bought through Bud's and you have to send it back?
kindof defeats the low cost if you are having to pay for shipping and FFL transfer fees, doesn't it?
Most guns I buy sales tax is more than the ffl. If I have a problem the gun is new the factory sends a shipping label. Once the gun is out of warranty I have my gunsmith fix it or ship it. I get my guns shipped to my gunsmith in the beginning. He inspects the gun before I see it. If it is not what I paid for he sends it back.
If these hick gun shops can't buy a gun for MSRP there is no need for them to bother with putting up a website. Google gun shops in Raleigh NC and look for yourself. I don't have to prove a damned thing to you. If you don't believe me look for yourself. The last thing I bought from a lgs was a box of Winchester 7.62 x 54r shells at perry's gun shop in wendell nc. They charged me over $40 for that box of shells. Would you run back there to do business after that type of reaming?
I can tell you how these shops stay in business. Most people around this area are internet illiterate or they don't shop online. They learn enough about a computer to do their job and that is it. People that shoot competitively buy their equipment online or they have more money than sense. Lots of them reload their own ammo. God bless them. Up until recently I never paid over $8 for a box of 9 mm ammo. I wouldn't load a box of 9 mm ammo if you paid me $8, much less to save $2. I do reload shotshells but there is a lot of savings in reloading shotshells and it's quick and easy.
