LOL...Gemco stores!

I bought the last 94 they had in their SFV store late in the day they closed for business forever. The store was a huge mess from front to back with paper, packing material and ripped-open merchandise everywhere. The box and manual for the gun were missing so I got the price knocked down a bit. We wrapped the gun in two brown paper shopping bags so it was packaged when we left the store with it. I filled out the paperwork but judging by the employees attitudes I suspect that everything went in the trash at closing time. Cash and carry...those were the days!
