    Question I've got is when are you going to move to VA for real. It can't be fun for a gun owner living where you do.

    One Less Dealer

    Just thought I'd let you guys know that Sports Authority in Tyson's corner has gotten out of the firearms business. They stopped selling handguns in 1999 but still sold rifles and ammo. According to the guy there tonight, they moved all the rifles out (to their stores out West) about a month ago and were just selling the last bits of ammo they had (which wasn't much). The rest of the hunting/firearms stuff was being boxed up too for shipment to the west coast.

    The reason - which I believe - is that they made no money on gun sales. He said no one ever really came in to purchase guns from them (or ammo) in profitable quantities and that they needed more room to sell golf equipment and clothing. This being Tysons, I can believe that.

    Its not a big loss - I only purchased ammo there once before, but its still sad anytime it happens.

    Too bad for Tyson's... You're right, it's bogus any time the FFL list gets shorter. Of course, I'd much prefer to be able to get my own FFL pricing, but that's another matter.

    Menu suggestions for this week?

    On another note... with regards to the Taurus saga. Since I'm not going to be there on Friday to have the real experts (you guys)look at it, I dropped by BRA and had the guys there look at it (figuring that I want to do whatever I’m going to do sooner than later).

    Comment was that there was some pitting in the chamber but not enough to compromise the cylinder. The damage therefore (according to them) is cosmetic. The mechanical action appears to be good so no issues there.

    If their assessment is correct, I’m thinking that it might not be worth my while a) fighting with CCI/Taurus about it (since I wasn’t original owner and the warranty card was never filled out, there was some skepticism expressed about Taurus’ willingness to do anything), then there is the cost of shipping it around (shipping, insurance, and would I have to use a FFL to ship to them?). All of this for a $200 gun?

    Obviously I’ll end up doing what I think best but I sure would like to hear you alls opinion.

    Off the saga topic…

    Since I’m not going shooting on Friday, the wife says she won’t take issue if I go to yet another gun show. So I’m figuring on going to the show this Saturday with an eye out for a shotgun so you all won’t talk about me in the future. Since I’m looking for primarily HD I’m thinking 18.5 in bbl. (do I have that length right?) Any opinions on what I should look for and ball park what it should cost?

    Well, shipping will cost about $20 one-way, I believe. Taurus shouldn't care about you being the 2nd owner because they honor their warranty for the life pf the gun.

    This one has been getting praised lately. Seems like it meets your criteria.

    hello again

    well as some of you might remember me asking about the show I will be going either friday or saturday. I wasent sure if friday would be worth it or not but my wife will be going with me and as she is in a wheelchair I thought that maybe there might be less crowd, and thus easier for her to get around. any opinions on friday instead of saturday?

    friday instead of saturday? no no no. friday as well as saturday. as well as sunday.

    at least that's my plan...

    crowds are a bit thinner on friday, though. definitely more chair friendly.

    SHOTGUN TO BUY

    Look for a Mossberg predator [18 inch] for about $200 to $250 out the door. It is a Mossberg 500 with both full stock and pistol grip:evil: . You can change them at will, allen wrench is supplied by Mossberg. You can also add other Mossberg barrels later if you want to hunt with it.:)

    well it seems that I will be going today, so if anyone sees a large and probobly tired looking guy (just finished a 12 hour shift at the prision) with a blond in a purple wheelchair feel free to introduce yourself. I would like you all to know that it was the original NOVA thread that got me hooked on this forum, it's always nice to know that there is someone fairly local here :)

    :cuss: I hate to see you guys give money to the cheesy anit-gun alpha hotels at C&E.

    If someone could post back if they are still confiscating ammunition, it could be useful.

    Sinsaba- I'm thinking you need a poll in the shotgun forum... :)
