I went to a gun show in Lakeland, FL yesterday and a local dealer had about twenty 371 LCP's selling them for $499!!! The sad thing is people were actually buying them for that! After handling one in person I really want one now but no way in hell am I going to pay $500 for one. I also noticed that some had the pinky extension loose in the box. Do all the 371's ship with the pinky extension now?
The only deal I saw while I was there was a new Kel-Tec PF-9, but it did not have the box or any other accessories. I also saw a couple P-3AT's for decent prices, but after handling a LCP the Kel-Tec looks and feels like a toy.
I'm pretty sure I can hold out for a while until production catches up with demand.
The last gun show I went to in Tampa Shoot Straight had the LCP for $499. When I questioned the price was rudely told that someone would buy it. Don't know what bothered me more, the attitude when I asked or the price itself. I've seen the gun locally in several shops for MSRP. Because of attitude I won't buy any more guns from Shoot Straight in Tampa. Other shops treat people with more courtsey and respect.
