Default Gander Mountain

So I took my TC omega to the big Gander Grand opening. I left it in the truck went to the used gun dept asked the counter guy if they bought guns "yes was the reply" told him I had a nice lightly used TC 50 cal Omega decked out with quality stuff, he said great bring it in for an appraisal. Went to the truck walked back in , the same guy took it out of the case and said sorry we don't take black powder used guns. Made my day!

Just a note: Gander Mountain has a store policy that allows only 60% book value for all used firearms, probably not where you would want to do a trade.

Should also be noted they only pay UP TO 60%, in many trades the seller doesn't even come close to getting 60%.

I will gladly pay extra to patronize a REAL gun shop and not a big box store.
My guy will ask where you bought the gun and promptly tell you to take it there for repair or whatever.

plus he uses local people to perform all his services where big box doesn't

Most of the counter people are: is that the one you want, I'm not really sure how it works, ect ect. I think the small shop where I did my ffl transfer through closed up. Now I have to look for another one close by.

The main reason I went to GM was the EX wants a laser equipped 380 Ruger, hopefully not to use on me, ha ha. Gander did not have any. I see them anywhere for $360-$400.00 on the internet, is this about right? I think the model is LCP????? Not totally sure though. Help appreciated as always.

HM it would be the LCP .380 with crimson trace or LazerMax sight
price seems about right for the lasermax Crimsontrace would be the high end or more IMO the crimson trace is a better laser
Ruger Suggested retail for them is
Crimson trace $559
Lasermax $449
so most sell for about $100 under that
Have one be prepared for some wicked side torque. It almost wants to twist your wrists off if you are not expecting it Great little pocket gun though
