It's in the rumor mill, it would be nice for them to have more space. Good for them, hope it comes about.:thumbsup

If they'd sell some of those poorly priced dust collectors, they'd have a whole lot more space! 8)

(long time fondler of those dust collectors who won't pay twice the going rate. :B )

I have purchased two 9mm semi auto's from Bensons over the past year.

One was priced decently, the other was a real bargain. I've seen it sold on Gunbroker.com for up to $200 more than I paid for it (and that's not including the extra for shipping & ffl transfer fees).

I think it just comes down to shopping around. Sure, some of their guns are way out of line, but not all of them. It just pays to shop around.

I'm talking about the older rifles, a few in particular that they obviously have no idea what they're really worth, especially in their current condition.

I've bought a handful of rifles and pistols from Bensons over the years.

Maybe they want to stock more stuff to increase sales, you know, someone holds it in their hands and says "I'll take it", but when they look at it in the catalog they go "ehh, maybe" when asked if they'd like to order it. That might help reduce the pricing a bit, some of the stuff they have is a pretty good deal, but some other things are way overpriced, like that $240 Nagant revolver, lol. I bought my Savage 64 from Bensons, might have been slightly cheaper to buy it from Dicks or Walmart, but I'm happy with the price, it was below MSRP. Also the store is kinda old and musty, lol. Someplace nice and new might do better, people tend to shop more freely in clean, bright, roomy stores than in cramped, dull, old buildings, they would probably improve sales with a bigger, newer store.

Folks:
It's definite and they're moving only down the block, a few hundred feet to the West of where they are now. The new store will be about twice the size of the current.

Just passed that area the other day and they are moving into the shopping center where the Christian store used to be. Maybe 200 feet down the road from their original location. The sign is up and they are taking half of the building. A bad economy looks like it has been a blessing to Benson's.
