    Default I Am Fed Up With "Price Gouging"...

    Hello everyone, I ask your forgiveness because this is a vent and an offer to help with info/support if you wish some. I am sure that there are great dealers out there, and please continue to support them. I am also finding many dealers who, in my opinion, are taking advantage of the current political situation to raise prices to unreasonable levels. I certainly have no objection to someone making a profit, and, as an FFL I have access to pricing info, as other dealers do, and if you are one who does not have access to that kind of info and would like a second opinion on the price of a firearm that you are considering for purchase, please feel free to ask and I am happy to provide info that may support you in doing some comparison shopping. It's a free service...I simply want buyers to have as much education as possible so they feel good about their purchase. You may certainly contact me here, although I may not always see a general request on this forum...or I am absolutely available via Facebook either at James Oates or Gemini Guns. My email will also work great...joatesiii at aol dot com. If I may be of any assistance, it would be my pleasure.

    Thanks James. I just received an email from Hyatt guns in Charlotte, NC saying they had the Shield.40 in stock. Price? $649! That is another place I will never consider doing business with.

    I'm pretty fed up with it too, but it's going on everywhere, private and stores.

    There was only one shop in my area that had 6+ AR's left, and I thought that was interesting. Yea, entry level bushmasters and Stag arms going for well over $2000...sorry guys, but you lost a customer. Wholesale sports did not price gouge, they sold out of pretty much everything, and they told me they will keep the market fair. Hole in the wall made up some excuse that it was the manufacturers that were raising the prices...

    Right...so when Wholesale can sell me an FNX9 stainless for $550 its the manufacturers fault you guys are selling it for $700?

    I don't know what I am going to do...but I need a rifle...and it's getting annoying trying to find one on a budget.

    LGS here selling $320 Yugoslav AKs for $1299
    If it doesn't fit, FORCE it! If it breaks then it needed to be replaced anyway.

    The only 9mm Shield at the gun show in Carter Lake, IA (Omaha area) went for $550 last night, about 10 minutes after the door opened.

    The only reason I ever go to Hyatts is to kick the tires. I've never found them to be competitive.
