OMG I wanted that Baretta Px4 Storm 9mm I saw at the Gun Show today. Been wanting one since I was able to fire off some rounds from a friend's Px4. Nice, nice weapon and extremely easy to break down and clean too. SA/DA pistol because of a de-cock feature which makes it absolutely one of the best personal carry holster pistols (much like an M92 as well).
Incredible story though. 22LR is going like hotcakes at the gun shows because people use so many of them for target practice and hang onto their larger caliber ammo. They sold out of 22LR in the first 45 minutes, and in the other building, there were these other vendors trying to sell off their's at outright insulting high prices, one guy selling a 250 round brick for $140!
There was one table I thought I saw $30 a brick and I told the guy I'd take one, and then he told me $80. I lloked at the price closer and it was $80, just written unclearly. I put it back down and then told him I'd pay him $80 for two bricks, but that was my offer and he turned it down. I just had to tell him "no offense, but you're not going to sell your ammo with prices like that. Good luck and all".
Amazingly enough, all that 22LR just sat on those tables. I don't know what those people were hoping for but they are't going to get enough sales of their ammo at that price to make a profit off of it, and something tells me they're dumb enough not to drop their prices at the last minute either.
Resistance is futile. Schedule is irrelevant, opponent is irrelevant... We are Gator, you will be assimilated.
