    LCP for $499!!!!!

    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?

    Do you think they would ship? Unless it was 2 minutes ago that you saw them, they probably don't have them anymore...can't find anything locally.

    And once again, my decision not to go to gun shows because dealers prey on the fact that people assume they are getting a good deal because they are at a show and thus price gouge, is solidified.

    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.

    I saw them there last Friday. I don't know if they're still there or not, but I like that I've got a couple of honest shops nearby.

    Gun shows are fun to look, but the good buys are likely to be found at the local shops.

    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.
