A friend recently sent me an ad from Gander Mountain where they had the new Taurus .380 Semi-auto pistols on sale for $199. That seemed to be a mighty good price, so I went to the local store to see if they had any. They did not, and could not tell me when they might get some in. “Just call every now and then and we will tell you if we get any.”
That didn’t sound very promising to me.
So, I went to the local Academy to see if they had any. They also had them for sale for $199, but again, did not have any in stock and were not able to tell me when they might get some in. They told me to just check back now and then.
After checking several times, I walked into Academy yesterday, and they had one on the shelf. I asked to see it and then told the guy, “I’ll take one.”
