    I don't understand why people go to those things. I have gone once and it sucked. Most of the deals are non even deals. Stores usually mark up their products a few weeks before black friday then return them to almost the same price. Home Depot actually marked up a $399 miter saw to $599 then returned it to $399 on black friday.

    Here's what I read earlier.

    Agreed, classic American materialism at it's finest. TV says go, the masses go. They're shooting people in Fayette-nam over this stuff, it happens every year.

    I went for a similar reason. Me and my fiancee got some funny looks from a guy that slammed into us and felt our ccw's. He then called the cops on us for having guns legally concealed in the parking lot of bass pro. That was the 2nd time i had cops called bc i had my colts on me in a public place in 3 weeks.

    They ought to ban you from this forum for posting that video. That woman's pants were just about to fall down. :mad:

    Just watching the chaos in that video just about gave me a panic attack.

    I heard the best deals to be had are the first two weeks of December. That's when the sales are good and the prices are at the lowest. The Black Friday deals are mostly to lure people into the store where they may get one or two good deals but the store has the hopes that you'll buy more items while you're there.

    My immediate family is not allowed to attend anything with large unruly crowds. It's simply to unpredictable. Individuals are for the most part, intelligent, but large group pack mentality is inherently dangerous.

    With all the preparation and common sence excersized by most here to AVOID conflict, I find it hard to believe that our members would forget everything they know and step into this mayhem for a discount.

    I spent 10 years in retail management (Sears and then Home Depot). I am so thankful to be away from all the black friday mess. Several years ago at my Sears store we had a door buster deal on a TV and had a shoving fit break out in electronics department. An older lady was pushed to the ground and stepped on and ended up breaking a hip. Less than 5 minutes into the store opening and someone is leaving by ambulance. This shopping tradition seems to bring out the worst in people, and in my opinion is contrary to the purpose of thanksgiving.

    I went to work and fiddled around for about 5 hours. The Walmart parking lot was packed at 4:30am.
    I did swing by Farm and Fleet around 11ish to pick my youngest son a nice little 1200 ft. per second pellet gun. It was crowded but nothing out of line. I heard some stories about two women getting into a nice fist fight over an X-Box though.

    I was working off duty at a local walmart. It was mayhem. There was a crowd of no less then 100 people surrounding a video game bin. At 12:00 the walmart employee took of the plastic and the fights broke out. Its always the woman that are the worst. In all 3 arrest and 4 citations.

    Signing out, Alpha1victor.
