RAP 9mm shopping

Been getting my stuff local. Gander mtn. is a bit high on their products. Looked at Buds web site and saw a factory new rap for way less than gander. Is factory new a nib pistol, or used? Has anyone had dealings with Buds? Thanks guys for any advice on this.

I bought a gun from Bud's once and no complaints. I've found that small gun shops will often order a gun for you and meet or beat online prices.

I also have no complaints with Buds. In addition, check out this site. They have a Ruger sale which is ending today:

Thank you all. Looked at SO super store and they have some good prices. Whole bunch less than Gander. The reason I prefer the RAP over the SR9 is the easier take down. I really like them both but, the SR is pricier and I thought the RAP would climb up in price because of the much expected demand.

I personally deal with my Local gun store and they've always beat the big box stores on there prices. I've never purchase a firearm on line, but I did run across a place called Grab A Gun site the other day and they have some really good prices, don't know how they're to deal with.

You can always go to your local guy and say "I want to buy this from you, can you get close to....? All they can do is say no, and no good businessman will be upset at you wanting the best deal and giving him a shot (pun intended)

True. When I started buying guns online, it was the local dealer who suggested "just call me first, I can save you time and usually a few dollars.
