    Nothing made the cut. All GM sold off to Camping World. What happens to each store, discounts, inventory is anybody's guess.

    Actually that's not 100% accurate. They are keeping the 5 most proffitable gun counters open, but doing a complete clearance of everything else in those stores. The GM in Amarillo is staying open. Have no idea where the other 4 are.

    Perhaps, but they will cease to be GMs.

    Went to GM in Spring on Sunday. Bought a couple of shirts I like. Guns, ammo, reloading supplies? I can find all of them cheaper at Academy or WalMart. Despite the "Everything Must Go" signs, they don't seem particularly anxious to encourage anyone to buy the stuff. Also, the staff has pretty much quit working. And "Up to 30% Off" means about 1% of the stuff is marked down by 30%, and the rest is generally 10%.

    I'm going to stop by Round Rock tomorrow; but I don't expect to find much. That pair of Kuhl jeans that's been on "clearance" for over two years is probably still 10% off!!!

    The only things I've seen that is a good deal is the shoes. Everything else is still way too much.

    My last experience at Gander Mtn.:

    Went to get a new S&W M&P Pro CORE to put a red dot on.. Watched the guy behind the counter destroy the one I was considering getting. I had broken the gun down to take a look at it thoroughly, I put it back together and they guy behind the counter went, "oh, that's how that comes apart - let me see" He takes the slide off, goes to put it back on and somehow put it on without aligning it so the slide is on the gun diagonally. I say, "uhh, that doesn't look right.." he goes "oh, oops" - and then can't get the slide back off. He eventually brute forces the slide off leaving metal shavings on the class counter. Inspecting the gun, he managed to shave off a bit of the metal rail that the slide attaches to. At this point he and the supervisor are both looking at me trying to put on a good face of "nothin's wrong" and ask me if I want to buy it.. Of course not, why would I want a gun you just severely damaged right in plain sight of all of us?

    I'm having a hard time not laughing or yelling at them. But I brought a pistol to see what they might be able to do for a trade and they proceed to offer me 100 dollars off the price of a gun in exchange for an FNX-9 that I brought in. I laugh in their faces and walk out without saying another word. I went to GrabAGun and bought the same M&P I was looking at in perfect condition for 150 dollars cheaper than what Gander wanted and I kept my FNX and still enjoy shooting it.

    Holsters are now 40% off... I picked up a few cheap generic holsters for when I'm just out casually shooting a gun I don't have a dedicated holster for. Also bought their remaining bags of deer corn. Bought their last can of Pyrodex at 40% off as well.

    Guns and ammo are still only 15% off. The ammo is pretty picked over and whats left is still way too expensive even with the 15% off.

    They must not be in a real hurry to liquidate.

    I went by the on in Round Rock (or is it North Austin) on Thursday, I didn't see anything that made me go "oh golly that IS a good deal!" It was busier than I had ever seen any Gander Mountain.


    I have no idea how the one in Amarillo is staying open. There is an academy on Soncy less than 4 miles away.

    I know there is/was a GM in the DFW area but I have never been in one or dealt with them so their going under does not affect me.
    Tactical may not always be practical, but practical is always tactical.
    I'd rather be right than politically correct!
