    Because I know all of my readers are just dying to have this question answered, yes, I did sit and write this deal post on Valentine’s day.

    keep it simple stupid (K.I.S.S.) “Not a Glock” – $439.99

    KISS Not a Glock

    What the deal is:

    The K.I.S.S. 80PBuild kit is probably the most “technically not a gun” gun that you can buy and have shipped to your door. Antique buffs and persons with a C&R license excluded. Some assembly is, as you can tell from the picture, required. Tools necessary on your end are a piece of sandpaper, a drill, and a utility knife. Some people get a real sense of accomplishment out of building these, some find them distasteful.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    This is a complete kit that can ship straight to your door. It is a “Not a Glock”  G17 in 9×19 selling for $440.  There is a multitude of videos out there on how to complete these.

    S&W Victory 22lr – $294.97

    What the deal is:

    This is a nice plinking pistol that’s clearly meant to be a suppressor host. It comes with a 1/2-28 threaded barrel and raised sights. The front sight is fiber optic. It takes 10 round magazines in 22LR and furthermore comes with two of them as well as a Picatinny rail (not pictured). Some users have reported initial issues with ejection, but that it rapidly overcomes them.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    It’s on sale for just under $300, making it competitively priced with the lowest priced model of a Ruger Mk IV. These are usually found for around $360, though of course prices can vary.

    Trijicon ACOG 4×32 for .223 – $899

    What the deal is:

    You guys know what this is. It’s the Trijicon Advanced Combat Optical Gunsight. Specifically, it’s the one made for .223 ballistics and with a red chevron reticle. Toss it on your AR and LARP in your basement. Or buy it because you need an optic that you’re familiar with.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    On Euro Optic’s website, it’s marked down $380. That’s not the true price, but they do seem to retail for around $950-$1000, so you are saving a decent chunk of change. It might be worth waiting to see if they drop further, or if you can find a truly smoking hot deal, but if you just want to buy one and forget about it, this is a good place to do so.

    Ruger EC9s 9mm Pistol

    What the deal is:

    It’s the Ruger EC9s 9mm that comes with one 7-round magazine. It is just a hair larger (less than an inch both ways) than the LCP, but where the LCP holds 6+1 rounds of 380 Auto this holds 7+1 of 9mm Parabellum. Not a bad upgrade. The front and rear sights are fixed and integral to the slide, so if you want to change the factory Ruger sights this is not the gun for you. If not, however, this gun is a sweet concealed carry piece.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    It’s a good CC piece for $200 plus free shipping in 9×19. Price wise this is down from $240. I have seen these for as low as $190, but with S&H factored in this is actually a better deal. Market price on these usually seems to hover somewhere around $210-$220, but again accounting for shipping in it ends up closer to $240.
