I have another one & they work great...There are some commercial parking lots we actually can salt with this spreader. The tires work great on ice.

Yeah, I brought home a little brother for my AK47!


GSG-AK47 in .22LR - Black Friday price $249. (They routinely sell for $300 - lowest I've seen them is $279)




That's my only Black Friday purchase and it was for myself.

I used my head though - I went and put it on layaway a few days beforehand. Then when it went on sale at midnight, I went back (I figured there would be less traffic at midnight than the following day), and instead of standing in a line 40 deep (I counted) to buy a rifle, I just went to the front register, and asked for a price adjustment on my layaway. In and out.
THEN I went back mid day Saturday and picked it up, avoiding all of the madness.

Default With the wifeeeee

We go every year and will continue also long as we get it over and done with like we have in the past. Since we have been going we are normally all done and presents are wrapped that day.

We did find some good deals 3k generator for $200, 22' ladder (little giant) for $129 and a lot of other things.

The last 2 years we resold a lot of our purchases and basically paid for out Christmas that way. So to me all the craziness is worth it.

I go every year too but at the same time it proves that retailers are ripping us off. They could do sales year round instead of jacking a price up and then saying 30% off. A lot of products I bought should be the price I paid.

Going to shoot it this weekend.
If it feeds reliably (some .22s are picky about the brand of ammo used) I will say that I've got a winner.

It's a pretty good copy of the real thing. Even the weight is nearly the same, which surprised me. While it's not "junky", there are some parts made of polymer, and it's not built to be abused like the real deal. It is what it is - a fun plinker that's affordable to shoot.
Here it is compared to my WASR AK...

I agree but it would take all of the fun out of it. Also if they did it year round those top executives would have a hard time justifying the million dollar bonuses.
