Thanks to all who are contributing to the Bargain Gate
« on: November 23, 2011, 01:29:31 AM »
It is nice to see so many people helping out and posting links to sales and bargains when they find something that could be of interest to many of us.

I must admit I have purchased 2 guns and several other items from information I obtained here in the Bargain Gate.  Thanks to you I enjoyed some great savings, and know many of us will continue to do so because of your contributions.

I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for taking the time out of their busy schedule to make the rest of us aware of some great deals out there.  It's people like you that make me proud to be part of the GTA family.

Harry

No, no thanks to anyone who posts air gun bargains here - it gives me GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome). This condition applies to guitars, guns, RC drones, bikes, motorcycles, snowmobiles, cars, cameras, microbrews, fine art, camping gear, fishing gear, boats/canoes/kayaks, heavy equipment, Jeeps, mud trucks, rat rods, dune buggies, 4-wheelers, whiskey, bullets, knives, logging equipment, cabins, surveillance equipment, HiFi stereo, speakers, jet skis, snowboards, swimsuit issues, and so on and so forth.

Bargain Gate is just no good. The less you spend on air guns the more cash/credit you have for actually buying and shooting pellets that keep the sport alive. No demand for pellets? Well then, no new air guns - a symbiotic relationship without the "bio" part.

A quick suggestion to anyone posting here:  How about taking the extra 15-30 seconds to add basic information to your title? Every single person coming here would like to see from a quick glance at the title what  is on sale for how much and from whom - please don't make us have to click through to your link to find out whether or not the item is one that is of interest or if the price is really a bargain

e.g.

Lazy Title:  "Acme Deal!"

Much Better:  "Acme 2000XXL $99.99 Refurbished at AirGuns-R-Us w/Free Shipping"

Thank you.

Just getting pointed in the right direction helps most on the deals.  David

Yes, but if it takes less then a single, solitary minute to go from a vague, uninformative post to one that very clearly tells anyone who might be interested all of the deal's pertinent information, why not go the tiny extra step and post a quality, fully-helpful post instead of a minimalist, lazy-guy post that doesn't even tell members what the deal is until clicking on the link?  I was brought up to do a good job on everything I do - the idea of doing a half*ssed job to save 32 seconds of time isn't a concept that makes a whole lot of sense to me.

Thank you all very much. Being pretty new I always think there isn't anything that I found that hasn't been found already. I need to start sharing more. Again, thanks to everyone.

After reading the latest email from Mr. Ron Robinson, in regard to his Crosman receiver scope mounts, I was all too happy to post a thread on that email's results. If you own an old Crosman with their 3/4" receiver, & you want to mount a scope, have a look in the bargain gate...you'll be glad you did, I'm sure!

Maybe we should develop a (voluntary) give-back standard, like donate 10% of what we save to the GTA forum that made this gate possible?  It might make the bandwidth bills a little easier.

completely agree... GAS kicked in I bought the Hatsan .30 cal 135 when what I REALLY want is the .25 caliber version... it was on sale! ... *sigh*

"GAS" can cause serious issues for sure, like the "swimsuit issues"...  what's up with that?  Nevermind, I don't think I want to know ;D
