Agree that the deals haven't been there. Gun stores have been dropping like flies in Sacramento. We've lost about half of our gun shops and part-time FFLs in the last two years. Business must not be too good.

I just picked up that Browning .22 for $250 OTD after rebate, that seems like a good deal. But I agree, there have been fewer good deals lately.

Let's be honest, being in CA hasn't made being a LGS or FFL easy or lucrative. Business isn't bad for the industry everywhere else.

Wait til after shotshow or around tax time. When you can build an ar now for under 500 bucks it says alot about the ar market.

I'm glad there is a lull. I have the feeling my wallet is going to get drained again after SHOT Show.

It's a racket I'm telling you...

It's always very slow this time of year. With the new laws incorporated in CA the past several years, it's not surprising. Ammo prices have fallen to ... pre-Sandy levels???... and every Tom, Dick, and Harry box stores/internet stores stuffed with ammo, the only items that are moving are the ones with rebates, and even those aren't doing that well after the initial sell off, as the vendors decided to get the rebates for themselves by removing the items from sales. Using the rebates now will only bring the prices down to the sales level of a few months ago. Since the rebates go on for another nearly 3 months, wait a month or two till the stocks replenish. I think the ammo sales will be back while the rebates are in effect.

Things always pick up during the Shot Show with vendors giving out coupons in addition to the online "Shot Show" sales. Show dates are 1/22 thru 1/26. I was hoping Santa gave me tickets or at least a way into the show, but, ........... no luck.

We need another BOGO sale with free shipping and no tax like we had a month ago, to wake things up again and get things moving again. I know, I'm probably dreaming, but bleep, that was one bleep of a sale.

If you want some pretty solid advice, start building low to moderate priced AR-15 right now. Build five or six of them and keep them in the safe until election time 2020. I bet you could probably double your money if you bought a bunch of ARS. If nothing else start stocking up on AR-15 uppers, lower parts kits, bolt carrier groups, and more

At a local level, there seems to be an uptick in politically motivated buying (Newsome) but not like in the Obama days. Our firearm Political climate is poor at best.
Rant...
Also, lets see, how many threads are out there talking about how somebody can save $25 by ordering a firearm on line, then complain that the FFL won't do it for free/cheap enough. The FFL you needs need to be able to make a reasonable living.
Yes, I do pay more to support my local FFLs.

I'm so glad there is a lull. In the last 30-40 days I've spent way more than I should have. But I've got 5 new firearms and cool accessories, so I got that going for me.

It'd be cool if an FFL you're friendly with could "sponsor" you.

It looks like a company email address is good enough for verification. They could set one up for you just to use for SHOT Show.

You'd pay your own way, of course... but maybe you could wear a company shirt to advertise the shop or something while you're there as well?

I thought the deals from Nov-Dec sucked compared to past years. I attribute it to the economy... do retailers really need to drop prices and offer those deals when business is booming?

Wait for a Dem president to be elected again... the deals will come back

Nice idea but I would think everyone would be wise to it.

Sure, prices will be back up where they were during the Osama reign. Then they will have great deals, 30-40% off. Of course they will be 10-20% more than they can be had for now.

But I think the California Statewide Glock January Half Price Sale will be... O wait, that was cancelled because of the plastic receiver scandal.

The more frequently you look for deals, the fewer there seems to be.
