    Im in my mid 40's and have been shopping once on Black Friday.... I dont even think a free gun would be enough to ever get me out on that day again!!!

    I might pick up one of those single shot Rossis at Walmart for $100.

    Great minds think alike! I love that I could get a 45-70 barrel and other big calibers for a fraction of what a gun chambered in them would cost.

    The 10/22 deal is also good on Saturday. Not sure if they are only going to give you that price with only the stock on hand though if they got cleaned out on Friday.

    Black Friday: a day to go to the range and expend ammo downrange at paper targets.

    The prices Dicks locally wants for ammo is not really all that great, but there is one notable exception - CCI Standard Velocity .22lr. It is normally $25/500, so last year I picked up 1000 rounds for <40 OTD. It is hard to beat the $25/500 price even online, and CCI SV accuracy in many rifles is much better than the price would indicate.

    I will not be purchasing any firearms on "Black Friday" in the year of
    2012. Why? you asked - 2012 has not been too kind to me fella's; as you all
    probably know, I lost the "love of my life" in August. Then, while she was ill,
    I had too have [2] hernia surgery's myself (July 23rd, and Oct.3rd); and I
    missed a few days pay. Therefore, bills have continued too mount; but with
    the blessings of GOD and MY personal Saviour Jesus Christ, and friends like
    you all - I'm making it~! Sometimes, I have to choose between eating or
    meeting expenditures; especially the pharmacy bill, under ObamaCare~!

    I'm not complaining, as I feel BLESSED; the GOOD LORD has taken care of
    me. Many of the good blessings I received, I did not deserve~!!!! Even thou
    my health is slipping; I'm still able to work my PT job. I do not want any type
    of a "HANDOUT" from anyone; especially Mr. President. With all my problems,
    this is my BABY; and I will go it alone, as GOD is GREAT~! Thank you all very

    Like others, I will be attending our second annual "Black Rifle Friday".

    From the title, I figured this thread would be mourning the passing of Twinkies and Ho-Hos.....

    I used to work retail. People act like nutjobs on Black Friday. I hope to be on a train that day. The only people I have to deal with are the fools who run around the gates...trying to get to Black Friday sales. :rolleyes:

    Ala Dan,

    If more people in this Country had your attitude it would be a far better place. I wish you the best of luck with your health and troubles.

    May God bless.

    I personally view Black Friday thus:

    Calculate the money you "saved" and compare that by the number of hours you spent acquiring it times what you make an hour. I am willing to be the hassle and time spent getting the "deals" doesn't equal what you would had made working for that time, and work IMHO is way less stressful. I actually multiply time by 3 times my hourly rate because I feel that is more representative of what would be fair compensation to deal with a mob but maybe that's just me.

    If you work from home, and you can work as many hours as you want, whenever you want, while getting paid your full wage for every single minute, then the above MIGHT be relevant.

    And I don't know about you, but researching ammunition or scopes or sites or other firearms accessories is not more stressful, for me, than work. The people I know would mostly agree, I think.

    Warp I was mainly trying to illustrate that work > Black Friday "deals" let alone free time. :) People become animals on that day lol

    Sports Authority is doing a "Pre Black Friday Sale" on pretty much everything. You buy now, pick up Saturday or Sunday. Just picked up a combo deal on a Mossberg ATR .243 w/ Barska 3-9x scope for $299.
