Black Friday Wish List

What's on everyone's Black Friday wish list? My wife and I don't really buy each other Christmas gifts, since we like to get what we want ourselves. So I usually set a little money aside for Black Friday. This year I'm hoping to get a good deal on a Vortex Venom for my SFx. Other than that, maybe a crap ton of ammo so I can keep shooting and practicing for competitions next year.

What's on everybody's wish list? What deals are you looking for?

Yes, I'm hoping there are good deals on ammo. After that, I will look for that "deal I just can't refuse". I am getting saturated with pistols, so that itch is dulling...I need to concentrate on shooting that which I have. Maybe that Ruger 9mm carbine? hmmm...

I forgot about a 9mm carbine. I've been looking at both the Kel Tec and Hi Point. But recently Ruger dropped something on the market that I saw awhile back that peaked my interest too. A carbine would be a good investment for myself since I'm kinda drowning in pistols right now.

IF...I can catch a super deal on a Marlin 60.... I might try to justify spending the moolah. $99 would be a good deal!

Crap, I forgot about the 10/22 Take Down that I've been wanting. But they are a bit pricey for a 22lr. If I can find one around $200 though I'll probably buy it. Model 60 is nice too, but I've been itching for a TD model.

I bought a Henry lever action at Walmart a few years back on Black Friday....seems like it was around $230 after tax. Everyone liked it.

I have a Henry lever 22lr and it's a fun gun to shoot. I paid about the same as you did a few years back. Probably the most accurate 22lr I've ever owned.

I still love shooting my Caniks (that replacement SFx they sent me is a dream) but Ive sort of started to to really enjoy rifles at the moment. I kind of want a Savage A17 Target Thumbhole semiautomatic with brown wood laminate stock and a bull barrel. Not that Ive given it much thought, obviously. :YMPRAY: :^O

Only issue there is that those little 17HMR rounds cost as much as 9mms do. And the more I diversify my calibers, there is really no more buying "in bulk" as I cant afford a case of 9mm, .30-06, .22LR, and 17HMR. So I guess I also need good ammo deals as badly as the rest of you.

I've been looking at one of those CZ American bolt action 22 rifles. There was a guy sighting one in at the range I go to and he was consistently getting one ragged hole groups at 25 yds. Like maybe 1/3 inch. He said he had 3 and they're all like that.

I've been looking at the 455 American combo. I don't really shoot 17HMR but I like that it comes with both barrels to give me more options. The price tag though is keeping me from buying it right now.

I've seen the same. Don't have one and don't need one, but they seem to live up to their reputation. CZ455.

...and don't need one, ...
Since when the #&!! did this have anything to do with it? I used to say this, but rationalization is the strongest human behavior... :))

In fact, after the election results, my wife said that I had better buy some more guns soon while I still can. God, I love that woman! :X

Nice! I wish my wife would say that to me. When I buy a new gun, I have to hide it in my range bag so she doesn't know. She's pretty much given up fighting me on it, but I still feel the need to hide my purchases. Oh, and today I put a CZ P09 on layaway at Buds Gun Shop. :)

I need to slow down. I know right now is about as good as it's ever going to get when it comes to buying firearms. Eventually the Dems will be back in office and pushing ahead with their anti-gun agenda. To be fair, I have a second job to pay for my gun hobby. My wife understands that I work that second job to support my habit. But, I'll probably be selling off some of my guns that don't get shot much.

And to go full circle on this thread...Black Friday is coming soon...so "slow down" doesn't match with the calendar, or your behavior...it's like an alcoholic going on the wagon the afternoon of New Year's Eve; A gambler quitting before the Kentucky Derby; Trump putting down the tweet phone; Bill becoming faithful at the topless bar; and Hillary telling the truth...well anytime.

Give in and come to the dark side (again), Janik.

Academy has the Ruger PC on a Black Friday sale for $399.

Wow, that's a good price...I will have to see if my LGS will come close.
