Setting my Black Friday Expectations

Recommended Posts

Okay, I'm getting pumped for Black Friday and figured I could use some help from the community on setting my expectations for the kinds of deals I'm likely to see.  Here's a list of stuff I'm in the market for... would appreciate some feedback on what stores I should be looking at and what kind of pricing to look for for each item.


1.  a basic Ruger 10/22 (to teach the kiddos)

2.  a fire-rated 10-24 gun size safe

3.  a Walther PPQ M2 5" in 9mm (hard to find in stock lately)

4.  a Mossberg 590A1 shotgun (missed the recent deal at PSA)

10/22 is usually on the menu.

Safes as well.

The latter two, not sure.

There are typically good shotgun deals but can't know for sure which models. Though entry level models are usually the big draw (Mossberg 500s, Maverick 88s, Rem 870s, etc)

No expectations, no disappointments.  This year I'm figuring unless it is a buy beyond all compare, something like never to be scene again, I'm taking a pass.  Just got a gut feeling about it, don't know why, may be wrong, but have to go with it.

Definitely on my list but may have to wait until next year!



Radio ads down here are stating "$799 AR-10 rifles" but I cannot say if those will be available online as well.  Also rumor has it the 1911 may be coming out...I'll be at the warehouse early to try and snag one if that is the case.

A deal has to be really good for me to jump on it this year. My collecting is slowly going in a new direction so I am going to try hard to not spend a lot of money on stuff I don't really need.


I'm going to stop just buying stuff because it's 10 or 20% off. Sure, when you're spending a grand then 20% off is great but for products under $200, it's not much. Plus newbies have to be aware of stores upping the prices of items to make up for the discount. Many of us know what the prices are for many gun-related products but when you talk about other products coming from Best Buy, Walmart, etc, many of those stores increase prices so it sounds like your getting a good deal, but it's just under what they normally sell at. 


So just some things to think about during these sales.

Was thinking of limiting my Black Friday/ holiday spending this year in order to save up for the little one coming in January. I'm still planning on stocking up on ammo, maybe a He ray Lever action in .22 and a Magpul Mossberg furniture kit...

      Hey everyone,  I'm a new gun owner and I love the gun community!  What I don't love is NJ and their ambiguous and backwards gun laws.  I wanted to get a pump action bullpup shotgun and was looking at the Kel Tec KS7 and KSG.  While trying to compare them with other brands I found it was almost impossible to find a list of pump action bullpup shotguns for around $1,000 or less.  Does anyone have any good recommendations besides the black aces tactical?  Thank you in advance for your time and help.  Have a great memorial day and God bless those who lost their loves making the ultimate sacrifice

      Up for trade is a heavy solid lockbox for larger suv vehicles to secure firearms, tools or other valuables from being stolen. This is I believe 3/4”‘plywood, it is solid and heavy. The locks is a mechanical simplex lock. It will not fail from lack of batteries or computer failure. The Combination and key need to be set by a locksmith. Measurements are 4 feet wide x 20 inches tall x 40 inches deep. Looking to trade for a firearm or related accessories.

      Just wondering if anyone's seen these out in the wild yet or knows what the ETA should look like.  I have a permit I'd like to use before it expires.  Thanks.

      As pictured, slip on muzzle device. Flash suppressor? Muzzle brake? The vents do not go 360, no vent on the bottom.
      Not sure how to qualify it but with the full size opening I'd venture flash suppressor. 
      Slip on and then pinned with a roll pin and an allen screw on the bottom.
      I had an older model stainless mini (180 series I think), used it on that, don't know about fitment on current models.
      $50 shipped priority mail CONUS.
      Location Delaware
      The first to post "I'll take it" establishes the buyer, PM after that.

    • I've said it before and I'll say it again. NJ Stautes, for the law abiding gun owner, only cover where you can possess hollowpoints.  They say nothing about where you can use them.    
    • I have a Springfield 1903 that I inherited long ago.  It was my grandfather's, my father's and finally mine but I know little about it! I also have the original bayonet that it came with.  It's made by Springfield and the serial # is 249839.  I have been told it's unsafe to shoot at that #. I have found that this 1903 was actually made in 1903 and has a casehardened receiver. I know that myself and my descendants have never fired it. The rifling looks brand new for a 119 year old rifle! I know nothing about it's value, how to judge it's condition, etc.  I put a few quick pics below and would appreciate any guidance you could give me.  
    • That paragraph describes the method of securing a firearm when being transported under a number of clauses in that section. You have to read the whole thing. It begins with: So look back to see what 2C:39-5 says about handguns and rifles/shotguns: Note the 2 underlined parts. If you have a permit to carry a handgun, possession of a handgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. However, almost nobody ever gets a permit to carry a handgun so almost all of us have to work under the exemptions for handguns. If you have an FPIC, possession of a rifle or shotgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. Notice that there is no mention of a loaded handgun, therefore all handguns are treated the same, loaded or not which is how carry permit holders can carry loaded handguns - it is not until you are forced to transport under the exemptions that being unloaded is required for handguns. However, possession of loaded rifles or shotguns is specifically called out as an offence. The thing you may realize from this is that if you have an FPIC, you do not have to adhere to 2C:39-6.g and can have the unloaded rifle or shotgun uncased. That is not to say you wouldn't potentially get jammed up under another charge, such as causing a public alarm or disturbance if you were walking down Main St with it on a sling, but you're not committing a firearms offence per se. Now go back and read what HE and I have said before - do not take my word for any of this. I am not a lawyer and this advice is worth no more than what you paid me for it. Read the whole of 2C:39 and 2C:58 and the relevant parts of the Admin Code, and then decide for yourself whether you believe me or need to ask someone who is actually qualified to explain this.
    • The statutes for transporting firearms do not specify handguns, but seem to apply to all firearms?   2C:39-6 g.   Any weapon being transported under paragraph (2) of subsection b., subsection e., or paragraph (1) or (3) of subsection f. of this section shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel shall include only deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances.
    • Passed my online exam, but no field sessions available yet. And can I bring a 12-gauge shotgun only, or do I have to use a muzzleloader too?   When do they resume?
