If Id known he would have taken 700 for the bicentennial, I wouldve bought both
That's a nice find too. I'm glad you didn't because I would have been out of luck

I like to use the lowballing a$$hole technique and see how far it takes me.
$850 on the tag. "Excuse me sir, how much do you really want for that $400 rifle?"

I was at a Dundalk Gun Show (of which I'd like to see another) and Fox Firearms had a killer deal on a rifle I really wanted. I walked away and never looked back. It was difficult, but I kept to my principles.

Speaking of Dundalk, what's up with Blue Fins. I haven't seen them active on the forums since the break-in and the show shortly thereafter.

Well, I wouldn't know that. I was just curious if their business was still succeeding. When they started out as an ip they seemed to post a good bit, but not so much in the last year or so.
