Featured Deals of the Week – 12/27/19


    Hey folks. I know it’s been a while since I published one of these. I’ve been traveling a lot lately, but it’s okay! You can bring your wallets out once again, and enjoy these post-Christmas deals.

    Police Trade-In Shotguns

    What the deal is:

    Used shotguns! Oh come on, these are really a great deal. Most police-issue shotguns only got used for annual qualifications, if that. They spent most of their lives locked up in a cruiser, so just like in this pretty J.C. Higgins Model 20 pictured above, there’s going to be some cosmetic wear. That having been said, the internals are almost certainly in great condition.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    There’s a ton of variety, for very reasonable prices here. A Remington 870 Express Magnum is going for $250, or an H&R Topper single-shot for just $150. If you’re looking for a new home defense gun, duck gun, or just hoping to get a new (to you) shotgun, this might be the deal for you.

    Ruger PC Carbine 9mm Take-down Tb/Fluted – $399 cash price

    What the deal is:

    I actually really want to get my hands on one of these. The Ruger PC Carbine is a really, really fun gun. And this is the take-down model, making it perfect for easy transport. And yes, it does take Glock mags. Or rather, it comes with a Glock magwell so it can take Glock magazines. It also comes with SR-series and Security-9 magwells for readers who have an abundance of Ruger 9mm handgun magazines.

    Why it’s a good deal:

    For the take-down model? This is definitely a buy-it-now price. It was a steal at $420, and Buds makes it incredibly easy to get the cash discount price. You can send a money order, certified or personal check or an e-check (which most banks I’ve seen do offer) to get this sub $400 offer.

    Palmetto’s AR-15 Days of Christmas Sale

    What the deal is:

    Palmetto’s AR-15 days of Christmas sale is still going on. And yes, some of their deals are perfectly standard, like these D&H Magazines for $7.99, or the PSA 11.5″ 5.56 1/7″ upper with BCG and charging handle for $249.99. But they also have some, in my opinion, really damn good deals. Like this Bushmaster Minimalist in 300BLK for $599.99. So shop and be merry.

    30% off Everything at AR500 Armor with the code TREATYOURSELF

    What the deal is:

    It’s a sad fact that much as we might love them, sometimes our relatives buy us things like socks for gifts instead of what we actually want, which of course is EOTech Ground Panoramic Night Vision Goggles. You know, the ones with 4 tubes that are only legally allowed to be sold to Law Enforcement and the Military and retail for approximately $42,999 (but ship for free)? Yeah, those. If you, like me, did not receive GPNVGs this holiday season, maybe treat yourself to some goodies from AR500. Like a plate carrier and some armor.
