Anyone else plan on standing in line for $5 with the prospects of a free rifle, more gift card money or an electric smoker? I plan on getting to the Hazelsood Cabela's around 11pm to get in line for their Black Friday sale, anyone else thinking about going?

I'm probably knuckleheaded enough for the whole MOHTF.

That's what my wife said last year.

I think the title covers things pretty well.

The HPD cheif probably wishes it wasn't. All those *GUNS!*

I doubt that there are anything but NFA trusts that own NFA gear in that town...

Cabela's has had the best price on primers in the area the last few times I was there. I lucked into decent sales and found them cheaper than any of the dedicated gun shops or reloading places.

I could use a new smoker too.



Still don't think I'll be there. I don't like lines or crowds.

Seriously?

Last time I was there for primers they wanted $40+ per K. I just walked out, pissed that I drove that far for a punchline that wasn't even funny!


For primers, Graff's in St Charles is hard to beat unless you want to pay hazmat + s/h. Last time I bought primers @ Cabela's it was $3.85/100 and I felt ripped off.

I'll be the big guy in the green non-Cabela's hat and black longcoat somewhere between Cabela's and Bed Bath & Beyond. Can't miss me.

I've gotten CCI 400 for $21.95/1000 right after they opened, and last winter they had them on sale the day I walked in for $24.95/1000.

On the same day Graf and Sons in St. Charles was selling them for $28.

I guess I've just been lucky.

ETA: I've come here almost immediately to post the sales when I saw them. Those threads don't get much playtime though.
Link Posted: 11/20/2012 2:38:12 PM EST
I did that once...never again. I won't get the 10/22 take down because they'll be gone before I even see the door, so no.

I think I'll be a Dicks... ugh what a horrible name for a store

I really hate malls, but west county is so much closer than mid rivers or chesterfield..

I'm guessing there?

If I was in that area, I'd be over at Bigfoot drooling over the trucks.

I'm planning on getting there around midnight.

Storm isn't that bad, temps have dropped but I don't need gloves or anything. I'm still alone, but there is a car full of people, I'm starting to think they are either icky gun people, witches, or scared of the ape man in front of the store.

I was tempted to drive past the Mills when I went to pick up the Redbox movies for tonight but didn't. At this point, I'm hoping for either the A5 or a $100 gift card but planning on an almost free BSA 30mm red dot. $19+tax is about the right price point for that one. Worst coems to it it'll go on the kiddo's 10/22 which I hope to get for him sooner rather than later.

Was just me till like a half hour ago now 10?
Also some horseshit rumor about having to come back to pick up guns after 1700?
Nics runs 24/7?

Went to Walmart at 10:30 to see if any of the 8PM nabi tablets were left. Also to see if they had any more ping-pong tables.

Walked around in awe of the humanity. Ping-pong tables were sold out. Not a single Walmart employee knew wtf I was talking about with the tablets. One person suggested I go look in lawn and garden as that's where all the 8PM tech stuff was stacked. No joy there.

Wife and I headed back to the toys and games section where the innotab and leapfrog crap is kept. Someone had put two nabis on the shelf. I snagged them. Moseyed over to the gun counter. They had HP laptops stacked for $279. I grabbed two of those just in case they weren't total shit(I have 15 days to return them if they are). Paid for my stuff and got home about 20 minutes ago.

My first black Friday shopping experience and it's not even Friday yet. Less than 30 minutes total in the store.




After doing some research on the HP laptops they might actually work for the Rosetta Stone and reference PC I had in mind. Not a great deal considering the hardware, and the nabi was by far a better deal at $129 for what is effectively a Google Nexus 7.

Have fun guys. I'm going to bed.

Still plenty of bracelets @ Cabela's. I'm over by the dumpsters between Cabela's and BB&B.

How's it looking @ Dick's?
Link Posted: 11/22/2012 8:26:36 PM EST
I got one of two .308 rem 700s
Nics is down till 0600 est.
I will pick up in morning. There was a fight brewing as I left. Glad to exfil home now.

Also glad I am male and my wife's company is across the highway so I could pee.

I got a good parking spot in the front of the store. You may just want to park over by BB&B.

I'm the knucklehead sitting on the curb by Cabela's generator. I can hold some curb space for ya.

Got room for one more? I should be there in about an hour.

Ya, I went ahead and left. Wristbands for the first 600 ran out a while ago, evidently. Also, I'm betting the only thing I wanted, (besides a shot at that rifle), would be gone by the time I got in anyway. Over 1000 people there, easily.

Got a $5 gift card. No big deal, ended up getting the BSA 30mm red
Dot for $19. I was hoping for more but I will survive.
