Gander Mountain had a special on the Ruger LCP for 290 bucks. I’ve seen them cheaper, but not locally, and ordering one from anywhere else comes with a 30 dollar FFL transfer fee. I noticed the deal in a flyer at Bitter’s mom’s in Roanoke, but there’s that whole federal law thing about not buying out of state. The nearest Gander Mountain in Pennsylvania is in Chambersburg, which happens to be on the way home, but they said they sold out the first day. Oh well. I’ll pick one up if I see one cheap at a gun show. Already have a Kel-Tec, but it’s getting kind of worn, and keeping the rust devil away is getting more difficult. I also need an LCP to match my Christmas present.
Of course, the difficulty in acquisition is because I’m not willing to buy one unlawfully. Had I been, I probably would have one in my possession now. Bitter’s mom, being unaware, offered to get one for me when I mentioned I couldn’t buy it out of state, until I mentioned that would be a felony. Who do these people think these laws are stopping? Certainly not anyone intent on breaking them.
