Any hidden (additional to your posted prices) costs involved in purchasing online?

tracfancier said:   Any hidden (additional to your posted prices) costs involved in purchasing online?

You have to find a local FFL to ship to and transfer the firearm. They will charge you from $15 to $50+ depending on where you are located. Budsgunshop and Gunbroker.com both have FFL lists you can search.

FFL fees, usually around $40 per firearm.

tracfancier said:   Any hidden (additional to your posted prices) costs involved in purchasing online?

In general FFL fee to the person that does the transfer ( Federal Firearms License ), Some states charge for a state background check fee, Some states charge tax on the sell price ( even if you bought it out of state )

The best thing to do is take a nra safety class, know your state laws and talk to your FFL. Before you ever order.

Always keep your guns and ammo locked up at all times.

Awesome price on the XD service, I just paid $529 for the exact gun 2 weeks ago.

What will you do if someone kicks down your door with a loaded gun in hand and your gun and ammo is locked up?

FFL fees are whatever the market will bear $10 to $100

You may want to try a non gun store like a Pawn shop that has a FFL

Or a Gunsmith

But they must have a Federal Firearms License.

Great. Just great. Vance Outdoors does not sell to California. Thanks California!

You might want to set your alarm for early in the morning for a practice run to see just what are the difficulties waking from a dead sleep and having to go into action. Might want to have the weapon unloaded that first test.

Okay lets try and get back on track. This is starting to get off topic.

Great price for a great gun. I had an XD9 3" and traded out to an XD40 3" and wish I'd gotten this price. Green for OP.

It is important to note that. Thnaks.

I ordered the XD9 Service from Vance. Only bad thing is they charge $49 for shipping (they will only ship overnight). However, it's still a great deal IMO. Thanks OP!

9mm essentials out of stock!

Butcherboy, you always say you think the XD is the best bang for the buck, but I don't think have ever said why. For example, why do you think it's better than the Sig Pro 2022? The 2022 has been $350.

People in this poll voted more for the Sig:
http://thefiringline.com/forums/showthread.php?t=459490
Though it could just be that the Sig is more popular because of the brand name, not necessarily better (like Apple). Possibly majority of the people voting have no experience with the XD?

Seems more people in this thread prefer the Sig too (maybe the same people as above):

Someone here on FW says the Sig is better too:
http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1241033/

I'm not trying to prove you wrong, just find the best gun around this price. So why is the Springfield XD better?

I'm looking for one for me, and one for my girlfriend. Shouldn't the XD, being striker fired, have a lighter pull than the Sig's first DA pull? The both seem to be about 5-7lbs.


Also the XD9 has always been on sale for $360 + $15 shipped, or $375 with FS, as recent as 12/21/2012.

Is $400 + ship the new "sale" price due to the overall demand increase?

Good guns, good prices.

1) First this is a very good in stock price for the times
If you keep up on Gun and ammo prices of today you will know this is a good buy.
2) There is a lot more intrust here here on F/W for the XD, But I do post Sig deals too, I posted one today.
http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1254946/
3) Sig are good guns my cop friends carry Glocks or Sigs but there Sigs are in the $800+ range.
4) For me I just dont like the fit of a Sig.
5) To me the Springfield XD is the best bang for the buck, And for me only.
I will also tell you the Rib Eye steak is the best cut of meat, But not all will agree with me....
6) I like my XD about as much as my Glock but the XD is 20% less.

I think this is a good sign that they have few guns in stock -
That possibly means that this hype is calming down a bit and hopefully ( keep fingers crossed )
things will go back to normal in a few weeks/months.. Am I too optimistic ?

>> I will also tell you the Rib Eye steak is the best cut of meat, But not all will agree with me....

Dammit, you're a butcher, we better agree with you if we want quality. That's almost like arguing with the Captain of the plane you're on. He's sitting in the left seat, while you're relaxing back in Coach. One knows the details better than the other.

>> That possibly means that this hype is calming down a bit

I stopped by a WalMart today, and while my wife was looking for soap and such, I wandered past the ammo, thinking I'd pick up some if they had just stocked the shelf (it's looked 1/3 empty lately). Today, all 10 shelves in the glass cabinet were empty. EMPTY...except for some personal defense .410 shells and a couple of boxes of 12ga slugs. You would have thought that zombies were already roaming the streets.

A bit frightening...

Checked the Wally World here in space coast Florida and nada, like Logan said above. Dammit people, stop acting crazy you really don't need 10,000 rounds.
I did pick up the essential pack 9 mm about 6 months ago for 369 and so far I like it as we'll as my glock

WalMart in phx showed in stock on .40 S&W so i went there, and not only was there none of that, all they had was 7mm rifle ammo

ammo at WalMart is something of the past.

My WalMart guy said he didn't expect any 9mm for two weeks.

sigs are better, just not the polymer series. i dont care for them much at all. but the p226 series and any other classic sig series rocks.

khmer6 said:   sigs are better, just not the polymer series. i dont care for them much at all. but the p226 series and any other classic sig series rocks.
Again as BB states best bang for the buck. If I were to compare my h&k or Kimber to a sig then what would you say? Again it's a personal preference ie ford Chevy Toyota.
Oh and I too like sig's.


khmer6 said:   sigs are better, just not the polymer series. i dont care for them much at all. but the p226 series and any other classic sig series rocks.

How much for a new p226 ?

24 hours ago I posted a Sig deal and no comments.

Thanks. So is the hand fitment the only thing you like about the Springfield XD over the Sig Pro 2022? The XD has a smaller grip doesn't it?

I think it'd be easier to decide which gun is overall better (goes on facts) than it'd be to decide what's the best tasting food item (goes on taste).

Sigs are very good guns.

When I have posted Glocks deals in the past, Some one has to say ( Sigs are better )
I have posted Toyota deal in the past Some one has to say ( Chevy are better )

Why not the Hk are better ?

To me Springfield XD 9mm are the best bang for the buck

Picked a new XD 9mm up about 15 months ago for under $400 with the FFL fees
Came with 2 mags + Springfield sent 3 extra mags + holster + mag pouch for free.

i wasn't saying sigs are better than the xd or vice versa. just responding to slickone about the 2022. for a polymer gun i think the XDs are the best bang for the buck, unless you can find a nicely used glock. but the xd does offer quite a few more features than the glock. preference.
