This is the closest thing to a 'deal' I found on palmetto mags, but they only allow you to order 10:

https://palmettostatearmory.com/c-pr...azine-10.htmlI

If they had free shipping I'd get 10.

Haven't seen any deals cheap enough to bother with yet.

Bass Pro circular shows a 10 AR500 1/2 gong with stand for $59.99. They are open tomorrow (T-day) and I will be on that side of town anyway so I can wait. Maybe they will sell out and save me the money.

JC Pennys has Dockers shoes for sale. I just bought two pair (one black, one brown) and saved $60. No gun stuff. We live in California, and I have learnt that guns are baaad.

I was really bummed out trying to order with Palmetto. They don't take phone orders. I had about $600 worth of stuff I wanted to buy and they only do online sales.

I never put any credit card numbers or debit card numbers out on the net. I make phone orders to keep my numbers from being hacked. It's all good if they don't do business by phone, I don't really need what they are selling.

You could always buy one of those pre-loaded 'debit cards' you buy with cash, then you can use the card safely on line. no ties to you bank account.

Ya I could but on these hot sales the companies sell out pretty fast. I wanted some glock model 20 mags at a fair price but by the time I reached someone by phone the mags were sold out.

My daughter buys her stuff with a prepaid amazon card, she gets cash from the bank to buy a card. The Amazon cards don't cost anything. Prepaid Visa cost $5.95 so once you add in shipping it runs the price up too much.

Debit cards I understand. I use my Discover card for everything I can. Their algorithm for detecting fraud works well enough for me. Plus I get back about $500 per year in rewards. You can set your account do text you for any purchase down to $0.01 if you like.

Where the sales rep kindly types your credit card number info his computer which goes through their server to your card issuers computer to verify funds. That trail never really goes away and if Palmettos server is hacked your hacked too. Better off to spend $5 to $10 for VPN service and your pipe info the net is so hard to crack hackers don't even try.

Capital One and CITI both have a feature that lets you create single use (virtual) card numbers linked to your main account that can only be used by the vendor you initially give that number to. I've been using this feature for years and have never had a problem.

I saw this at the Cabelas in Reno, I just went online and bought one. 59 bucks is a pretty good deal.

Buy this upper for $230, the complete lower for $130, and you have a complete AR for $360.

https://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-...cg-ch-fde.html

Use a credit card. Its the banks money, if the card gets hacked its their problem.

But I ended up buying a brick of ammo from Academy Sports instead. Academy was not only cheaper on the ammo itself, but they also shipped it for free. That meant I didn't need to drive all the way to North Knoxville to buy ammo in a crowded store.

Funny how Thanks giving and Christmas has been monetize and commercialize. people don't spread love or get together... All they do is buy stuff that they think would make them feel better.

It does make me feel better that I was able to purchase things after a lifetime of hard work. Yes the world is running on capitalism and they sell what ever way it takes. Without it most folks wouldn't have a job.

Oh and I just spent a pile of money getting gun stuff.... me soooo happy.

This morning Classic Arms sent an email. They are selling Federal Black Pack 9mm, 115 grain FMJ for $124.00 per 1000 after rebate. Plus they have free shipping on it. That's the lowest I have seen 9mm this year. I think I read the sale was running until midnight tonight.

So I made an order Monday the 2nd and still had not received an email from them on shipping . Called about the order and they say they have over 2,000 orders a day now and mine won't be shipped until monday.

Just checked my other order that I made on the 3rd and it gets here on Wednesday of next week.

Last time I checked the title of this thread was "Black Friday deals," not "Thanksgiving deals" or even "How did you spend your Thanksgiving." Nothing stopping you from creating a thread on the spirit of Thanksgiving if there is not one already.
