Saving my pennies

I inherited some guns from my dad, in fact too many for my safe to hold. Despite that I still want two more. One is a 1911 match type pistol, most likely a Colt or Baer. The second gun is a Kel-Tec KSG. You can see a few for sale but they're at scalper's prices right now. All the ones I've seen on the gun auction sites are going for 1500+ dollars, nowhere near the suggested retail of 880. Hopefully when production goes up price will come down. Eventually they might start selling, dare I say it, lower than retail price. Around here most new guns typically sell about 20% under "suggested" retail although it might take the KSG a while to get there. But I'm saving and if they should ever come down to reasonable levels I will be ready.

Yup, gonna get one too as soon as the prices come down. I like the bullpup 308 too. Saw one of those - once!

Jason I think there’s many potential buyers like you and me only waiting for the prices to drop. It’s an innovative design for sure but it is still a pump shotgun and priced quite high for one. I might pay full retail but I can’t see myself ever paying more than that. As for the RFB I was enthusiastic about it until I finally got to handle one. It is a nice rifle but the end of the barrel is not that far in front of your face. I bet the muzzle flash is monstrous!

You are probably right on the muzzle flash, I bet it is brutal. That would be a good use of a 'can' which I am saving my pennies for too. I need more pennies....
