Snagged Another

August 27th, 2006 by Justin Leave a reply »

I stopped into a local Dunham’s store today to see if they had any firearms sales going. Yep, they did, and they had the Yogu SKS 59/66 on sale for $99.99.

At that price I should have bought two, but I only snagged one. Just not thinking clearly, I suppose. I might have to go back for another one.

Now, if you don’t already have a semi-automatic rifle chambered for an intermediate cartridge and want one these are a heck of a deal. They’re not too light, the 59/66′s that is, but they’re pretty hard to beat for one hundred stinking dollars. These days a case of 7.62x39mm ammo will cost you more than the actual gun, and 7.62x39mm isn’t exactly pricey.

Well, it’s getting pricey, but that’s another topic entirely.

I would like to take this time to mention that Dunham’s now “requires” a phone number for every gun purchase. I’m used to retailers asking for a phone number and I usually reply with a polite, “No thanks.” or, “I’d rather not.” but the cashier informed me that they required it for gun purchases. Apologetically. I suppose they get a number of gun guys that balk at that question.

    Yeah.. I just bought a Browning BuckMark pistol because of the raising ammo prices (and to practice trigger pull as you suggested). Cheapest 7.62×39 I’ve seen so far is at http://www.sportsmansguide.com. If you find it cheaper somewhere else, please let me know. You can always get the AK copy chambered for .22 LR at Dunhams too.. Somehow I don’t think it’ll be as fun to shoot though. :)

    Looks like Sportsman’s Guide has the Wolf stuff for $147 a case + shipping. AmmoMan is selling it for $180 out the door. If you can get the Sportsman’s Guide shipped for under $33 then it is the best deal.

    I bought my first case of Wolf 7.62x39mm about 4 years ago and it was $80 out the door at the gunshow. Crazy.

    Oh, and Abect — I was thinking the same thing. I’ll give them other shops numbers.
