Don't forget to check your favorite gun shop for Black Friday specials. I got a circular from mine and they are have special on S&W and Ruger firearms (including AR-556 but I don't expect that they will have many).

I like that retailers are doing the sales early, it eases the actual black friday rush.

I planned on taking Black Friday ads out to the range and using them as targets on Friday as a symbolic protest of the commercialization of the Christmas holiday.

It used to be a tradition with my kids but stopped black "Friday" shopping couple years ago when stores started to open on Thursday, and gatecrashed family gatherings on Thanksgiving day.
Last year, I started a new tradition and went with my wife on Friday after sale times were over. I accompanied her to Macy's and she returned the favor by going with me to my favorite LGS.
We'll do it again this year.

I have never gone shopping on Black Friday, and don't intend to start now.

Besides, If you can't buy it 5 minutes to closing time on Christmas Eve, Its probably not much of a gift anyway!

Lots of advantages to this: 1) lots of things are already on sale, 2) you don't have to worry about where to hide it, 3) you don't need to gift wrap it, and 4) decision making is easier because you just buy whatever is left! :D

Sounds racist to me. I'll hold out until some other day. :)

We went last year about 2pm and still got the TV we wanted. Looked like a normal shopping day in the store at that time. I don't like crowds.

I tried to go out on Black Friday one time. It was such a madhouse and parking was non-existent. Forget that. Never again! The deals aren't worth it. I shop on-line for most of my gifts anyway.

The only black friday shopping I'm willing to do is online.
One semi-local LGS is advertising an FMK poly lower with a CMMG parts kit for $59 that I can purchase online then pick up in store later.......

I wont leave the house on black friday. People are nuts. But my LGS is having 9mm , 115 grain CCI Blazer brass & metal case ammo on sale for $9 & $10 a box. I was in there yesterday, and since I know the owner quite well, I ask if I could call an order in Friday and pay over the phone. He ask for what? I said 2 cases of 9mm ammo. He laughs and says sure. I cant pick it up when ever,

So I still dont have to leave the house Friday. :D

I will go to the local farm store for a taurus pt111 g2 in 9mm for $199 and a $50 rebate. Worth the 10 mile drive. I will go early as I'm told they have plenty but I'm sure others see a good deal. Do I need it? Hell no but I understand it's a nice gun and the price us right

Last year, I went to the range on Black Friday (and my LCP shot tighter groups than my Glock 41). May do the same again this year.

I think all the gun stores around here are having the Black Friday sale all weekend.
Most of the prices I have seen are no better than sales prices any other time of the year. On the other hand there are one of two items that I might pick up.
