Default Best time to buy a rifle

Giving your experiences, when is the best time to purchase a rifle. Around here the prices seem to stay the same both during and after hunting season. Is it different in your area?

It's not a bad time right after Christams. A lot of shops get stuck with guns they thought they'd sell...and if they sell them before Jan 1, the guns are NOT included in their inventory...

I've found that if the last hunting season in an area has ended before Christmas, the best time is before Christmas. Otherwise right after the holidays. If a bunch of new models come out in the spring, just like cars, the dealers are getting rid of the old models.

Early in the new year the new stock starts arriving and the dealers want to clear out existing stock.They are much easier to deal with at this time.

Lots of used guns end up on the shelves right after deer season ends in my area.
Gun shop has to pay taxes on the inventory so most will reduce the price considerably if you talk to them before the first of the year.

I think any time you have the extra cash around is a good time to buy an extra firearm. Never can have to many firearms. Usually I find around the end of April /beginning of May . Most stores are trying to unload old stock to make room for new model year coming in.

Seems like the big sporting stores put guns on sale that are seasonally comin into season or ones that they have a lot of on hand they want to unload.Seems like a lot of local shops hold steady on their prices.
