    I stopped by the local gun shop just to look around and the first thing I noticed was the dramatic increase in their prices. Heres a few examples:

    Gen 4 Glocks $799

    Gen 3 Glocks $729

    Aimpoint Comp M4 $1199

    PMC 9mm 115gr $25.99

    The guy behind the counter said people don't even care how much things cost...:huh:



    BTW dont get any ideas. Glocks sold here still go for $500 :laugh:

    I will never buy from discount guns. Their prices, inventory and customer service sucks every time I've stepped through the door.

    The big discount at discount guns is that they are so overpriced you will leave without purchasing anything.

    Holy crap. Yesterday my local store had a shelf full of gen 3 glocks for $450 apiece. I just recently picked up a well used, but good condition one for $350. I can't imagine anyone knowledgeable would ever pay $729 for a stock glock. Hell, even with the panic buying, I just saw half a dozen Mini-14 ranch rifles on the shelf for that exact price.

    Discount Guns CAN BE way over priced. They can also be fair priced from time to time. They have a broad selection. The time I have been in Beaverton Discount Guns, I noticed there were not staffed by moonlighting mall ninjas. One can do worse than Discount Guns in my experience.
