Default First Handgun Ruger SR1911 .45

Picked it up a few weeks ago from Williams in Davison, MI. I love the 1911 styling and wood grips.. Got a great deal on it for $629.. A buddy of mine went to bass pro and bought the same gun for 770. Lol, so stay away from there for guns. This was my first ever gun purchase. I filled out the background check paper work and they called it in to the "FBI" and I was cleared to buy it right away.

I don't know why you needed to add the part about the NICS check...

Are you a felon?

Bass Pro matches any in store prices in MI, and gives you money back on your purchases with the free rewards card

Soo you could have gotten $12 back on your purchase on top of getting the same price. Do a little research before you bad mouth a company.

Also,

You no longer need to get a purchase permit when buying from a FFL.

I didn't know that. That's good to know!

CPL sales are the same as before. You just no longer have to get a purchase permit to buy from an FFL dealer, who can call in the background check themselves.

PP's are still required for private sales of pistols, but CPL holders can still just fill out an RI-60

DOH!

I forgot he bought it as Williams. I was going to say, he doesn't have his CPL so he would have needed a PP to buy it, but that would have been the case if it bought it from a private seller.

I'm too tired to read today.

Don't have a rewards card and I highly doubt they would of matched. Sorry I forgot you stocked the shelves there. Didn't mean to offend your career.
