So I go to the gun show the other day in the market for an XDm 9mm and find a nicely priced one for $590 less tax, so I jump on it. I do the paper work and hand the guy my credit card while talking to my friend expecting to pay $640 with tax. When I get home I fill out the paperwork for my 2 free mags and what does the price on the receipt say: $540. I look over it and apparently the guy forgot to carry the one when adding the tax. So I get a new XDm 9mm for $540 out the door! Can anyone beat that?

I got my XD .45 for $505.00 at a show in Richmond. Local stores were anywhere from $50 to $150 more.

I was gonna say "Karma can beat it", but looks likes a few already beat me too it.

It amazes me what I see on a regular basis. A checker at a grocierey store is ringing out a friend, I am next in line. They are talking about what to do this weekend. The one checking her out is passing every 4th or 5th item thru the scanner, the other 4 items are free, The big cart she pushed up cost..... $35 or so at checkout, hell with todays prices, that cost is exceeded with 16 cans of chili. A manager walks by, and I inform him he has a theif working here and quickly explained what happened, the girl with the grocery makes a dart for the door with the cart, she gets nabbed, the worker is told to go to security, I was told thank you, and the worker as she was walking away crying yelled at me "I am going to be fired and I dont know what I will do for my kids, you caused this" I said in the firm, carried voice, of a Marine Drill Instructor "No ma'am, you caused this, I simply protected the hard working individuals that patron this store. Maybe you should go home and teach you childeren what honesty is, and start setting an example, otherwise your hands are going to be really full when they start growing up".
