Grices this past weekend

Anyone else at Grices this weekend? Was your typical Spring Sale zoo but I got the things I was after. A Heritage Rough Rider .22 pistol for trapping for $149 and a TC Venture Predator in 204 Ruger for $449 (with the rebate).

I wonder how many guns they sell during that? I can't even imagine the $ amount. While filling out the paperwork for the handgun I bet there was 20 other guys around me doing the same and some were just waiting on the background check results and it was that way the whole time we were there.

Bob's Army Navy wasn't much better but they had .22 shells. A 525 pack of Federal for $35 I think?

Re: Grices this past weekend

Until I hear that they have a good stock of CCI Standard Vel I won't bother to make the drive again. I drove all the way down there last summer and bought NOTHING!

You may ask how can anyone go in there and not buy anything... They had no 22's(no surprise) and every gun that I wanted to look at was either out of stock or didn't interest me. First time in a decade that I made the six hour drive for nothing. Well I did pick up a new orange hat at Mauer's on my way back.

The dollar value of what goes through there is sick.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

You couldn't pay me to go there during those sales.

The Federal 22LR at Bobs Army Navy were $29 with tax for 525. They definitely had some good deals at both places. It was crazy Saturday morning!

My brother in law went Sunday and said it was packed. Asked him to pick me up a Nikon P300 BLK scope but, of course, they "never got them in."

Re: Grices this past weekend

We were in both Grice's and Bob's Sat. morning, a real zoo but we got some deals on ammo. I got 5 boxes of 9mm at around $13 a box and some of the .22's. Also got a pound of 4895 at Bob's. Got 3031, Rem 9 1/2M primers, some .45 auto and a few other things at Grice's. Parking wasn't bad and check-out lines moved pretty well.

Re: Grices this past weekend

When I was working in State College a couple weeks ago, I made a detour through Clearfield and stopped at Grice's. They had about 30 bricks of standard velocity .22's on the shelf. Only 2 bricks of Remington ELY target .22's. I bought a brick of the standards.

The horizon is your starting point.

Re: Grices this past weekend

Stopped at grices Saturday morning on the way to camp so my dad could get a charter arms snub nose. It was just starting to get packed at 9:30am. Sunday we stopped back at grices and then to bobs army navy. Bobs had the bricks of 22lr and better ammo prices. Plus bobs had free donuts and coffee
