Default Thank you Brownells!

I went into Brownells last night to buy reloading supplies and while I was waiting for my order to come up I did my usual wander over to the used gun rack. One of their salesman had given me a heads up that he had just returned from a huge estate auction and Brownells had purchased over a hundred clean quality firearms that were going on the shelf over the weekend.

Since I am culling the herd in my old age I was only looking.......but then.....you guys all know how it works......there it was, a Winchester model 94AE Trapper in 357 magnum. The price tag was $399! I felt like an old lady at a garage sale. I latched onto it in a like "I saw it first" fashion, only there wasn't anyone in the same isle. I know that the sales staff always expect a little bartering so they build that into the price. Therefore I asked salesman Mike if he could take $20 off that price and he agreed.

$379 for a 94 Trapper in 357 in great shape. My wife even thought is was cute.

You know that verse in the bible that say "do unto others and then split"? Okay that ain't how it goes but....a couple of years ago I went into Brownells to make a trade. I had a new in the box Savage 99 in the Brush gun version in 375 Winchester. The value around $1300. I was wanting a Dan Wesson Pointman 7 that they had on the rack....well I thought that I wanted that DW. That was before they offered me $275 for my Savage 99. They pissed me off is what they did. I didn't go back for a long time. I can imagine that salesman taking that 99 and marking it at $400 thinking that he would take $375 and make a quick $100 for Pete and company. The first dude in the store that wasn't brain dead concerning gun values would see that 99 sitting there with that price tag and step on his tongue while yanking it off the shelf....just like I did with the little 357 yesterday.

Either they marked it wrong or the seller got the same screwing over that they tried to give me on the 99. Any who they got done unto them what they tried to do unto me onliest they done it unto themselves and I'm liking it!
