    So after the Newtown shooting certain places decided to price gouge...
    Here is my "I will never ever give them one red cent list:"
    Cheaper than dirt - Price gouging MF'ers
    Champion in Kent - long story
    Bushmaster Web Store - hidden charges...

    I have a new one!!! Check this out:
    ARMSLIST - For Sale: glock 42 380 auto

    I want to say that Federal Way Discount Guns had one for $409 so for P.N.T. Firearms to list this at $659 they are now added to my list of gun gougers!
    It took a little searching to chase down the phone number but I did! (See their little nickle add with the same phone number)

    Salem Harley-Davidson.

    Quoted me a price to change the rear tire on my Street Bob, came to pick it up and it was WAY more than the quoted price, and there was nothing extra to justify the price increase.

    Dicks Sporting Goods for being dicks about ARs after Sandy Hook.

    Now that they think everyone (on both sides of the fence) has forgotten, they are selling them again.

    Discount Guns. Many times their prices are above MSRP.

    If they even put a price on them. The one on Hwy 99 doesn't so you have to ask and the price is list or higher. I go in there for a good laugh sometimes.

    S M Gunshop here in the People's Republic of Eugene.
    RK Gunsmithing in Nampa ID since he screwed up my Colt Defender.

    Consumers will be able to identify gun-friendly businesses and avoid gun-free zones in their towns if a Virginia businessman gets his way.
    Bryan Crosswhite has launched 2amendment.org, an online database of businesses that allows customers to carry guns. iPhone and Android apps are in the works.
    Crosswhite has also created a gold and black sticker that says “2AO” to make it easy for consumers to identify gun-friendly businesses. He compares the sticker to those issued by the Zagat restaurant guide. The stickers would be placed in the business’s windows or doors so customers could identify them.
    “We want to make it something for business owners who are pro-Second Amendment,” Crosswhite said of the stickers. “A sticker on the door, just like Zagat, and that way people who want to do business with pro-Second Amendment companies will automatically connect with those Second Amendment companies.”
    Businesses that register with 2amendment.org will get to display the stickers, Crosswhite said. He did not say why he had created the site but in recent months a number of Virginia businesses have come under fire for trying to keep out those carrying guns.
    Not Related to Toby Keith Controversy
    The highest profile case involved Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill in Woodbridge, Virginia. The restaurant attracted attention and criticism by barring guns from the establishment. News stories indicate that the decision was made by the franchise owner and not Keith.
    Virginia state law allows business owners to bar guns from their premises. The state also has a law that allows persons with a concealed carry permit to bring a concealed weapon into an establishment that serves alcohol as long as they do not drink, The Washington Times reported.
    How to hide your guns, and other off grid caches…
    Crosswhite did not say whether the Toby Keith incident had inspired him to launch his website in a recent Times interview. He simply mentioned his support for the Second Amendment.
    Virginia gun owners were upset with the Bar & Grill because Toby Keith has publicly supported the Second Amendment in the past.
    He practices what he preaches
    Crosswhite’s own restaurant, the Cajun Experience in Leesburg, Virginia, hosts an Open Carry Wednesday event each week.
    The purpose of 2amendment.org is clearly laid out at the website. It states:
    “The organization puts people together with likeminded business owner(s).”
    It isn’t clear how many businesses have registered with 2amendment.org. One business that has signed up is Modern American Shooting & Firearms, a pistol training company.
    “I’m an advocate of every law-abiding American citizen learning how to defend themselves with a firearm and carrying a firearm on a daily basis,” Baraka James, the owner of Modern American, told The Times. “I want to know the businesses they go to will welcome them.”
    Businesses that have expressed interest in the 2AO 2014 stickers include insurance agencies and coffee shops, Crosswhite said.
    It isn’t clear if this will become a grassroots movement, but it could. Popular frustration with gun control efforts is leading to a greater awareness of Second Amendment issues and the stands people take on them.

    Sorry man! Hurts me to see that done to a nice handgun. That's some poor Gunsmithing for sure. Makes me wonder what the guy had for lunch that day, or if maybe he handed it off to a newbe to learn on. I know there are several good smiths on this forum, so maybe one of them can help you get it looking right again. I'm thinking about putting some night sights on my Defender also, but won't be taking it to RK in Nampa. Thanks for the heads up.

    Get a quote from Colt to refinish it and then take that HACK to small claims court for damages.

    Kieths sporting goods in gresham everyone there is a jerk, they act like they are god's gift, and treat people like ish. But i was there when some crack head came in with an oldman, looking at a remington 870. Told the guy behind the counter I'll take 3!
    Clerk asked for his ID and he just points to the old man and says oh no he's buying all of them, they're all for him. WTF! And they sold to them.

    Pretty much any place that doesn't allow firearms

    I try not to shop at sportsmans their prices are always high.

    Don't shop at brightwater anymore for the same reason as kieth's

    I do love budsgunshop.com
    Went there a lot when i was in Kentucky. Place was packed all the time and everyone working there was extremely helpful and customer service was awesome. They had the best prices anywhere.

    Discount Guns off 185th and Baseline in Beaverton/Hillsboro. Nice/Large selection of guns, but everything I was looking for wad about 20-30% over other local stores. Sure, maybe they had it in stock when another stored didn't. but there's a reason that it was still in stock: anyone with a lick of sense saw their prices and said "no thanks, I'll wait to find it at a reasonable price elsewhere." I don't know how they stay in business...
