    Default Finally I am getting the rifle I have wanted all season

    So finally after an exhausting search for a gun I have had my eye on I have finally got it
    I have had my eye on the new Thompson center venture predator in 22-250. I have spent the last 4 months trying to track one down and nobody had one they were sold out everywhere I went through thompsons dealer list and that was dry as well. I called Cabellas and they said they had one only to call me back and say that it was already sold. I finally gave up and and gave the guy at Cabellas my contact info and he told me he would call me if any of their stores got one in. That was last month, I did not expect them to call and thought they forgot about me and I figured I would try again later this year to get my hands on one.
    Well they called me today and said they had my rifle if I still wanted it and to make things better it is the package deal with the scope and also included is a Foxpro Spitfire. The rifle alone when I was looking was $579 and the since they got it as a package I will get this gun the Spitfire and scope it is only going to cost $599 the spitfore alone is $199 through cabelas.
    Too bad I already bought the Firestorm earlier this year.
    I should have it in my hands by the end of the week I am soo excited I love new toys.

    Thats what I planned on doing with the Spitfire They are 200 dollers through Cabelas so I figured I would sel it for 150.
    Dont have any info on the spitfire but I love the Firestorm that I have. Loud for the size and good clear volume.

    What a Deal, pretty awesome of a huge store like that one, to remember you and then still give you a package deal price, thanks for posting the details on such a Deal, always good to hear of customer service "over the top"

    Sounds like a fun new toy for sure, (get some pics of it for us when it arrives)

    Man, "Go get 'em," is about all there is to say to you now.

    If you want a good deal on a rifle I typicaly use a guy down here in Soldotna that so far nobody can beat his prices. The store is called "The Impact area" and his number is (907) 262-1625.
    The only reason I bought my rifle through Cabelas and not him was he couldnt find one all his supliers had them backordered. but his price on them was about 70$ cheaper than cabelas, 130 dollers cheaper if you add shipping. Give him a call you might be suprised at his prices.
