If you're the kind of person that spends money in gun stores/outdoors stores constantly, I've watched guys entirely pay for Benelli Super Vinci's ($1,600) just from their saved points.

Hell, Not only would we have price matched them, you can sign up for our Mastercard and save 10% on top of that with anything you purchase up to $150 off. Williams doesn't offer that, do they? If you were going to pay cash anyways, just get the card, get the 10%, and go to any Bank of America, pay it off and cancel it. I have return customers do that every time they buy a firearm. You could have gotten your Ruger for $570 from us

How old are you, just wondering on age for your first purchase. I bought my first gun with help from my dad at 13, bought my muzzle loader at 17, been buying one a year, or so since.

I can not remember how old I was when I picked up my first pistol a S&W model 629 power ported 44 mag,

should have never sold that plinkster.

I have been to Williams twice. Both times left unsatisfied with their customer service. The salesman were rude and very short with me.

We are trying to do this more and more. Local hardware versus HD or Lowes. Local restaurant versus a chain restaurant. Most of the time I am product shopping, not price shopping.

On the other hand, I took it in the a$$ a couple weeks ago. I used Accurate Firearms as an FFL and they charged me $75. Lots of places charge under $50.

BTW, I do not hate our country. I love our country, I just hate the way it's trending.

I feel the same. I buy a lot of my bike stuff, auto parts and guns from small local shops versus online. It does cost more but it is nice to have them there.

Did everyone turn into liberals overnight? Just curious, considering you all usually say that if a man can be successful and build his company from the ground up, he earned his right to what he has. Well, Bass Pro started in a liquor store in 1971 and turned into a mail order company, and over the years has been built to what it is now.

None of you would expand a company to serve as many people as possible if you're doing well enough to do so? lol

I have no shame working for a company that was home grown just like any of the small stores now, who did things right and was able to build 70+ stores and employ about 15,000 Americans. Not only that, but very very few employees are started at or make minimum wage. They constantly put people to full time work and offer health benefits and even retirement plans if you think you'll work there that long.

Theres something wrong with all that?

Ooooorrrrrr, we don't like shopping at chain stores. I like shopping at places where the owner knows my first name.

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.

Would you just fukc off already? Take your faggot friends with you.

I like Bass Pro for their great selection of fishing ammo and their cool and huge fish tank.

One day soon I will get my first pew pew and my dad just asked me if I had any interest in his shotgun as he was thinking about selling it to a guy he knows from church.

I think I am interested in it as he has had it for about 30 years. I am going to get the info on it and ask your opinion about it as I know little about guns but have started reading recently.

Ok here is what my Dad offered to me.

Savage/Stevens 67 Series E

12 Gauge pump shotgun

And this is what I found about it

2 years ago #2

the Stevens 67 was a utility shotgun when they originally were sold.

They were discontinued in 1989.

If the gun is in excellent condition, and is a later model with choke tubes and a vent rib - it would be valued at $200.00 to $250.00 If it is one of the older guns with a fixed choke and no vent rib it's value would be $100 less.

All prices contingent on condition.



Any opinions beyond that???

If they are hand me downs, meaning free then sure take them. If you want them because they were your fathers, then again sure take them. However if they have no meaning to you, then there are better options out there.

I like bass pro for the selection & I agree it's the American dream success story. However, if they now raise their prices "because they can", I don't appreciate it and would rather spend my money at the little guy's store if he can be competitive.
