I love free market capitalism> Today I was looking for a Remington VLS .223 and found them priced from $950 to $650. Haven't seen a price that low for years. I have that model in .243 and my brother has one in .223. Both of us paid about $725 years ago. They have been wicked accurate. I'm looking for a friend. In that process, I found several other "bargains", which gets my mojo working.
