Saw a Remmy 870 chambered in 3in for $198 at the gun shop in Chandler a week or so ago and thought I should have bought it right then, but didn't. Went in today to get it and it sold yesterday :-\ :-\ :'( :'( Talking to the shop owner and he looked up how much a new version would cost and he figured out he was waaay under priced on that gun. So won't be finding a bargin there again. You'd think I'd lean by now.....

Sux when that happens. I've passed on a couple of deals myself, thinking to go back later and got burned like you.

Academy has both the Mossburg and the Remmy 870 for $280ish. But I'm not likin the green laminate stock & foregrip. Might have to get one and swap the furniture.

Ya I have gotten lucky a couple of times with good deals but I usually miss out on them.

I got a GREAT deal on a new toy I hope to pick up tomorrow. I got me a boat. Its a 17' Tracker Grizzly 1754 SC with a duck blind paint job. A mercury 25h EFI 4 stroke, also came with a minn kota edge trolling motor, hummingbird 580c fish finder and a tun of other stuff. If i was to buy it all seperate it would run me nearly 18k. Needless to say it was less than half that.
