Kudos to a local dealer who isn't screwing with pricing -- LL Guns

    I stopped yesterday @ LL Guns (Battle Ground, WA) and was able to pick-up a Ruger Mark III for a decent price.

    While they do not have a lot of stock, I didn't see any of the gouging that I've seen at other dealers.

    Just bookmarked this page. My son lives in Battle Ground and I'll check LL next time I visit him.

    I hate to be THAT guy, but a .22lr pistol is not going to be effected by the scare-induced demand we have seen on so many popular guns.

    And its not really price GOUGING, its an increase in price, because of a drastic increase in demand, with no increase in supply. basic economics. So don't hate your local gun store for charging $1,500 for a standard AR-15, they are doing so because they don't expect to have their normal supply from their dealers for quite a while.

    L&L is a nice shop in an old bank - probably the most secure gun shop I've seen in a long time. Must be nice to have a walk in vault for overnight storage.

    FYI -- none of their prices on any of their guns was jacked up...I was just adding a 22 to my collection. But, like I said, their inventory is fairly low.

    I expect gun businesses to raise their prices to current marketing. $1500.00 for a new AR from a gun shop isn't unreasonable. After all, their in the business to make money. However, price gouging is different. $2500.000 for the same AR that sold a month ago for $1000.00 is price gouging.

    One good thing about this current frenzy, I know what people and businesses I WONT be buying from in the future.
