    Free Gun... Happy Whoppo!

    My favorite LGS recently moved to a new location and this past weekend had a Grand Opening celebration... Shortly after they closed for the day I got a phone call from the owner to let me know I won the grand prize of a free AR-15.

    Well, knowing that my AR quota is already filled, he kindly offered me the opportunity to choose another prize.... and here it is!

    PARA SSP w/ CT grips (PX745EKCT)



    Woot!

    'spose that depends on the AR - what's the retail on that para, about $1200?

    The PARA was actually tagged at a little over a hundred dollars more than the AR was, but these guys have been cutting me great deals for a long time... and yes... they hooked me up with 100 rounds of Federal 230 gr. ball ammo as well :)
    Range Report coming soon.

    AR was a DPMS flat top, stainless 20" barrel. Actually a nice rifle...

    MSRP on the PARA was $1175 with the factory CT LaserGrips.

    I've had a Para LDA for a few years now and I have only good things to say about it. I've had to pop in a new main spring and that was it. Nice deal for you amigo!
