You right about pricing. Anywhere there is an Academy sports they are getting their clock cleaned. I don't like Dicks, Gander Mountain or Bass Pro.
That being said, I did make my first purchase ever in Gander Mountain yesterday. I have been looking for another M9/92FS. Been looking for 6 months and couldn't find a used or new one in stock anywhere.
Went in just to kill time and they had a 92FS -599+ tax. Special offer of $50 gift card with purchase. I put it on layaway and they just knocked $50 off the price. Found a $20 customer appreciation coupon on thier site. Wasn't sure they'd honor the second discount but they did.
Picked it up yesterday $529 + tax.
Excellent price for a NIB 92FS. Honestly, I probably won't buy nothing else there unless its hard to find something at a great price.
Academy sold me on their customer service years ago and their prices always beat Walmart on anything.
Freedom is far from free. Thank a U.S. Veteran.
