    How much do think they can move on a $550 pistol? I'll bet that is already lower than MSRP! I think with the popularity of the 238 you should be just happy to find the one you want! They're not easy to get right now!

    Buy It!!!

    By the time you pay FFL fees and shipping, a similar website purchase will be about the same as the 550.00 your local store wants.

    The gun is worth it. Just be glad you found one. If you like it, buy it. It's a great pistol.

    550 plus sales tax. unfortunately for my local retailers my sales tax is 5% which on guns 500 and up evens out the shipping/transfer costs. so if the gun is 500 online its about 550 to my door. 550 in the store over 600 with tax...

    I bought an all black one with Night sights for $539 + tax = $588 and thought I got a good deal. If thats what you want, you should grab it. LM

    Very hard to find down here. Once Sig figured out the feeding issues, they have been jumping off the shelves.
    I have a friend who owns a gun shop in town and gave me the titanium finished (rainbow) with rosewood grips and night sights for $500 out the door. Cheapest I have seen it in the shops is $775.

    exactly so the actual price is around 475-500 why should i let a shop price gouge me just because they are popular guns. when a gas station does it congress has an investigation, when a gun shop does it "just buy it and be happy you found one"
