The shopping frenzy approaching at the end of the week will not leave gun communities untouched, giving us a reason to be enthusiastic about Black Friday as well. Gun deals from major retailers and online shopping hubs have been created for this occasion, and this puts many items on our wish lists a bit closer to what we can afford. So we decided to create this roundup of the best Black Friday gun sales and gun deals we think every gun fan should take a look through before deciding what they will treat themselves to this coming weekend.
We expect many people will rush to take advantage of these Black Friday gun deals, given the uncertainty of future gun policy. The next Black Friday will take place after the presidential elections, and some voices in the gun community argue that if the future president will not look kindly to gun rights and impose an even more restrictive climate, these may be the last Black Friday gun deals that we’ll be seeing for a while. Even if it’s not a given that we have cause to be circumspect, the fact remains that this is how the gun market has behaved after the last 2 elections (of 2008 and 2012): for a while, people just bought everything they could get their hands on in terms of guns and ammo, at whatever price the manufacturers and merchants demanded. All the more reason to stock up now and take advantage of the Black Friday gun sales that catch your eye.
Top Black Friday Gun Sales and Promotions
Without further ado, here are the main gun deals that we think are note-worthy this week:
- $100 off for Leopold scopes from Cabela’s: Leopold scopes are some of the best standard optics for most guns in U.S., and most gun owners consider them very effective for their affordable price range. With these Black Friday gun deals, they just became even more affordable. If you’re willing to spend a little more for a truly professional gun scope, take a look at Cabela’s offer for Zeiss scopes; you won’t be able to find anything better as far as optics are concerned. Cabela’s also came up with $50 reductions to prices of popular gun models, so browse their entire offer for this weekend here.
- Walmart Black Friday gun deals: This year, the Walmart offer is pretty generous on Black Friday gun sales. Some discounts are more significant than others, so you should browse through and see what catches your eye. Our top pick would be the Benjamin Titan XS.177 Cal NP Break Barrel Rifle with 4X32mm Center Point Scope, only $86.15 (down from $219.99). You can see their entire range of discounts and offers directly on their website, though some items may only be available in stores. Here is their firearms offer and here is their offer for gun safes and storage units (pretty handy, and some of the options are also highly decorative).
- Gander Mountain Black Friday gun deals: As expected, Gander Mountain didn’t disappoint this year and created a range of special offers sure to tempt any gun fan. Our particular picks would be the Remington Model 870 Express Shotgun for only $239.99 (down from $304.99), and the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield for $374.99 (for which you would also receive a $50 gift card). Browse through their entire range of offers for Black Friday here. Also, for the next 3 days (before the actual Black Friday weekend), all orders benefit from a special Promo code (EARLY20) with further discounts (see details of this promotion, as well as more gun offers, here).
- Dicks Sporting Goods Gun Sales: Last, but not least, you should also take a look at the sales offered by Dick’s. You can save a minimum of $50 (going up as the prices rise as well) on a lot of popular gun and rifle models. Take a look at their entire offer here, but do note that all guns are available for purchase in stores only, so use the store locator once you made up your mind on what product you’d like to find more about from their list of Black Friday gun sales.
