Do not shop at Maxon Shooters and Supplies

So I went there today just to look around cause I've never been there before, and the salesman who helped me was not only nice and helpful, but seemed to know what he was talking about.
On top of that, they had a rifle in stock that was better than what I had been looking at at other places, and for a cheaper price.

Because of all this my checking account is now less $800 than it was before I walked in and tomorrow I should be able to pick up my brand new Panther Arms 5.56 A-15 with HD free-float barrel, A3 flattop upper receiver, and adjustable butt stock.

When I get it home tomorrow and install my sights and bi-pod I'll post pics in the firearms pic thread.

Hahaha... I opened this up thinking "aww shit, what the fuck?!?!?" Been a regular at Maxon's for about 10 years now & have become good friends with Barry & Claudia. They're good people. You should have come out for the Springfield Armory event last weekend. Taurus will be representing next month (meh) and H&K in December.

Lately I've noticed a trend of titling threads 180 of what they really are so I thought I would jump on the band wagon of sorts and try it.

Bek, would have made it out there on Sat but I was working around the parents house doing maintenance for them and by the time I remembered that it was going on it was too late.

So I just got home from picking up the rifle. Once I mount my sights and bi-pod I'll try to snap a couple pics.

Heh, sure have! I've been doing it for many years, took a 2-3 year hiatus, and just started back up last month.

Is that a KelTec Sub2000?
How do you like it? I've been eyeing it for a while. I've got a KelTec p3at and love it.
