GAS or GUNS ???

Postby tigwelder56 » Sun Sep 14, 2008 9:06 pm

At Max Motors, a car dealership in Butler, Missouri, owner Mark Muller was offering any customer buying a new or used vehicle a $250 gas card or $250 toward the purchase of a handgun. Out of 43 cars and trucks sold in a four - day period this May, 41 of the customers opted for the gun voucher. "Every American should carry a gun for his own safety," Muller told the Kansas City Star. "We all carry guns here [at the dealership]." (From G&A 10/08)

reminds me of a dealer here in Maine, has a great deal going all month, $2,000 push tow or pull trade in minimum, plus a free 12 guage pump with every trade in!, i went out to the junkyard, bought 5 cars for $200 , had em hauled there and got 5 nice guns :-D

I'd like to see them start offering Ammunition for trade ins too! It's a buck a round for alot of stuff (or more), we won't be able to practice pretty soon. Very sad... Between the economy and Oblama, we're screwed!

Hey Smith, what are the ammunition shipping requirements and regulations between Canada and the US? Are there any cost advantages as well? I guess many are wondering what specifics you might be able to provide on this subject. Thanks for your time!

well shipping can be kind of a pain in the butt, because of customs and all, they have to regulate ammo and make sure it is not illegal in the US and such, basic customs cost on the 20,000 rounds i got was about $100 , but canada is not having the same ammo shortage that we are, so its alot easier to aqqure the ammo there than it is here.



basicaly you go through the same customs junk that if you were transporting a firearm country-country, few pieces of paperwork that have to be filled out iwth US customs, canada is pretty laxed so its not tough on their side......



overall its pretty easy

in the actual transportation of the ammuniton i just drove up to jackman ME and met the guy at the quebec boarder, had the ammo run though customs, they okayed it i paid the $100 fee to customs for the registration of the ammunition and loaded it in my tunk and went, im not to clear on if you were to actualy ship the ammo via currier or fex-ex or such
