No need to apologize. The point is for everyone to learn, and often the best way to really learn something is by making a mistake. I certainly make my share.

My wife points out that I am continually "learning" everyday! :P

On the flip side to Big 5, I purchased a Mossy 590 for $210. a while back with their $229.99 sale and a 10% coupon. The tag on the box had it listed for $399.99. Since then I have never seen it that low. I guess they learned. I'm happy.

33 years ago I bought a Marlin 30-30 for $89. The store had to order it in. When I picked it up, the clerk told me that they paid more than $89 to get it.

Next year, that chain of stores, called White Front, went bankrupt. I bought lots of stuff at incredible prices at their liquidation sale. I still have a box of .308 sierra bullets with the store tag on them and a price tag or 5.99

I read this same thing over and over, here and in other reviews of Gallenson's online. However, when looking for a Kimber 1911 recently I thought their prices were right in line with other stores in the SL valley and down through Orem. The Pro Carry HD 2 I got was easily the best deal I saw in several days of visiting shops. I thought their prices on .45 auto ammo was reasonable as well, especially their defensive (hollow point) rounds. I certainly can't speak to everything they sell, but for what I was in the market for, they were more than competitive and had a great selection.

Very legal in what they did, I'm a gun dealer in Draper Utah and the federal law gives us dealers the right to refuse sale to anyone we feel maybe trying obtain a firearm illegally. However nothing in law says you can't purchase a firearm for a gift for someone. Dealer should of asked more questions before denying the sale or at least I would have. Us that have federal license have our freedom to protect, cause you make one wrong mistake and ATF will have their boys at your door putting shiny bracelets on you and giving you a ride to Federal Prison. So don't blame dealer for Covering his backside, I'm sure you would want to do the same thing if your freedom was on the line. Now days you can't be to sure who's walking in your door trying to purchase a firearm.
