    Go to Home Depots website.
    Change store location to the one listed above.
    Purchase gen at the lower price and have it shipped to your home.
    No idea how Champions rate.

    Bought some HST. Not multiple cases like you cool cats but enough to load my magazines. I’ll do the rebate when it gets here.

    from the reviews I have read people generally seem pleased with them. quiet, fuel efficient, and can be paired with another unit of the same size doubling output capacity. for 299 I said, what the hell Ill give it a try. the reviews I read online on HD and in the threads I read about it on arfcom seemed positive. I think it will work for my needs, light camping, but most importantly using minimal fuel to keep things like my freezer and refrigerator going during long times without power like we experienced during the ice storm a few years back. My large generator worked fine for 9 days, but fuel consumption was high compared to what I was really drawing for energy output off of it the majority of the time. the big one is good for my boiler and well pump as well as 240 oven, but small things like lights and tv, ac, space heater and fridge, I believe this champion will fit my needs much more economically.
    do some reading, plenty of opinions out there to gather and form your own from. cheers

    This was a a good deal. I ordered two at the reduced price. I sent this to a friend and it seems switching to the Cambray store is no longer giving you the $299.00 price. Anyone having and luck?

    Just make sure the gun you plan to use them in is rated for +P ammo. Many 9s are not and the manufacturers won't help you if you f**k it up shooting +p. Check the manual/website

    If any of you plan on doing the hst rebate from target sports, make sure you have all the papers from your order. I didn’t save the packing slip and i hope it works. For $25 back I won’t lose any sleep but it would sort of suck to not get it back because I was prompt in cleaning up the junk from the packing box.

    You're either expecting a magazine ban or planning to arm a small African nation.

    I bought a couple of these awhile back, one optics ready and one with an A2 front sight. I got them for $219 and I though that was a good deal. Al-Jim is correct this is a KILLER deal. And if you are worried this AR Stoner stuff is NOT junk. I Have been very pleased with it.

    A r upper prices are plummeting. You check CDNN and other places and your jaw hits the floor. If I could ever decide on heavy vs light bullets, I’d get a 300BLK pistol upper for my fixed mag.

    $8.99 PMAGs with free shipping at PSA, makes it $80 cheaper than that deal. But it's still $89.90 for 10 in case you don't actually want 100 mags.

    I’ve been keeping my eye out for a complete G19 slide, preferably with night sights. Any suggestions on where to look? Who seems to have the best prices?

    10 round Glock mags are like porn. It's kinda cool but just not like the real thing.

    It's kinda junky, but their barrels aren't half bad. I've got both their 7.5" and 10.5" .223 Wylde barrels and both shoot nice groupings. Never tried their complete uppers, but they can't be worse than the POS one I got from Brownells.

    PSA is .09 cents a magazine less expensive for twenty mags. For some reason PSA charges me tax in Pennsylvania while Brownells does not. The Brownells deal is way better at 1000 but not practical without 4 or 5 people interested. The PSA price is the better deal until ~20 mags and then tax drives it more expensive.

    Ah, I didn't realize you weren't in NH (MA folks can't get in on PMAG deals) so I didn't include tax. Both are still solid deals depending on how many people want to order.

    I have found nothing junky about mine, guess it is a matter of opinion. It may not compare to a Daniel Defense offering, but it is certainly not junk.

    Is that the type that foams up??? There are a bunch of brands of it. I used it back in the 80's cleaning out the lenses of a microfilm camera. (Nothing to James Bond'ish. I was archiving tax records. Fun job. Not really. LOL). I have a can of something similar to clean my car windows. I will say if they get particularly dirty I'm better off using a grease-cutting cleaner FIRST.
