And please, folks, don't take any of this suggestion the wrong way. You are asked to simply CONSIDER how much you might help by just buying a few items you would buy anyway from an individual who has helped nearly everyone he comes in contact with in the airgun world. Directing your money and buying power for a single purchase isn't going to put someone else out of business. Pyramyd will never miss the money. Airguns of Arizona will hardly notice. I won't notice, and I'm a small dealer as well.
So if you get the chance next week, send Mike some business. It will be interesting to see how things do or don't happen.
I just had to close a small retail business in part because of people buying from larger chains and big online shops.
Having the time now I just got back into my Airguns.
Like an idiot I immediately went to google to see who had the best price on a P-Rod and bought it from Pyramyd with an 11% off coupon.
What was I thinking ! In the big picture will I really need the $30 I might of saved? I feel as petty as the people who were instrumental in putting my shop out of business by buying elsewhere for a few dollars less in spite of my excellent reputation for customer service.
In fact I know Mike from 4 years ago and now feel "More stupid".
It is and should be my mission to help the small guy for the rest of my life.
Randy you're alright! I responded to this a couple of days ago and asked we consider a date for the Cash Mob but I ordered a gun from Mike before you posted the suggestion of next week.
I feel a little bit better now.
P.S. Was this deleted from the GTA?
N.E.Dan 30+ self tuned rifles and 20+ pistols to date!!
