Maine Gun Dealer Latest News and Updates



LATEST NEWS AND UPDATES

 
Visit here daily for the latest news and updates.

Facebook account restricted Maine

Instead of trying to post daily on Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, or Twitter I will be posting updates here more often. Why? Due to the fact that either Facebook or other platforms are flagging firearm and ammo related posts or anti gun individuals or groups reporting our posts and causing us to be put in "Facebook Jail" for several days or a month. I heard they started using AI in December of 2023 to detect anything that is in possible violation to their rules. This blocks us from posting or restrics our post for the duration of the jail (restricted) time. This happens even though we have proof we are a license firearms dealer. Eventually the page will be removed from the platform if there are too many violations. They ignore the fact that most illegal activity happens in privates groups and messenger.
Another issue is even though we have thousands of followers on Facebook only a few hundred actually see our posts in their news feed. Facebook, Instagram and others limit post from pages like ours. The only way for those 1000's of followers to see our posts would be to go to our Facebook page daily. Well since this is the case and appears as though there is no hope of any changes in the future we decided to use this method instead.
FYI: 2024 has been a hard year so far for firearms related posts on Facebook and Instagram. Gun Owners Of Maine has been hit hard and is in danger of losing their Facebook group page. I have been hit serveral times with violations since Decemnber. We will have to use pages like this, Blogs, Forums, or other Social Media platforms that are far less popular but do not have the restrictions META platforms have.

What will be posted here?
Updates on shipments, changes in hours (Google is the best place to look), price changes, policy changes, gun related news, or anything else that the owner feels is important. All without social media limiting our free speech.

This will not replace these pages:

DATE PUBLISHED: 10/05/2023

A lot of manufacturers have promos and rebates. This might be the best time to buy a gun.

I can order guns for you. Bring cash with you and prepay to get the best cash price. Many firearns in stock at the larger shops have a high MAP price that they sell at. Such as Browning, Beretta, Bergara, Christensen Arms, Colt, Daniel Defense, H&K, Sig Sauer, Smith & Wesson, Tikka, Wilson Combat and more. I can save you a lot of money if they are avaialble for me to order. You could save 50, 100, even 100's and that is NO JOKE!
My mark up is 25-100 dollars depending on the cost of the firearm! Most average a mark up of 40 dollars.
Most firearms can be here within a week.


DATE PUBLISHED: 11/22/2023

Lots of inventory on the way. Shipments arriving daily.

Had customers come in recently saying how much cheaper my hunting ammo is. Some gun shops are charging 5 or 6 dollars more a box just because they are on a main road and get people radomly stopping in and don't compare prices. You can type in the part number on the box and compare my prices on the website. I always hear about how good my gun prices are and how competative my accessories are.


DATE PUBLISHED: 12/05/2023

SHIPMENTS ARRIVING DAILY!

PRICE INCREASES ARE BEING ANNOUNCED FOR JAN 1ST 2024. BUY WHAT YOU WANT BEFORE THE PRICE INCREASES HAPPEN. It is always something I try to do. I always try to buy by Dec 31st because I know there could be a 5-50 dollar increase on a firearm sometimes even more. Ammo and reloading will be increasing as well. BUY NOW!


DATE PUBLISHED: 12/13/2023

The shop has been very busy. I have not had time to post here everyday.

I WILL BE OFFERING A 4% CASH DISCOUNT ON SOME FIREARMS. I need to come up with a system to do so. I am starting to change some prices as new items come in to reflect the 4% discount.
Why? Some credit cards I am seeing a 4% charge. Cards that earn cash back or corporate cards can charge higher fees. That cash back is paid by someone and that is the retailer. The credit card companies are not giving you the cash back out of their pocket. Some firearms I added 1% others I am eating the 1 percent.


DATE PUBLISHED: 12/26/2023

OPEN 9AM-NOON DEC 26TH Cannot work past noon.
OPEN REG HOURS THE REST OF THE WEEK.

In Facebook jail again. I am not dealing with Facebook. I will continue to post here as much as possible. I posted a video of ammo prices in a big box store (from You Tube) out of state and commented that basically my prices on ammo were better than theirs and Facebook didn't like it.

The Gun Owners of Maine group is close to being shut down. They received a threat from Facebook. So much for freedom of speech.

Open regular hours this week. I am still working on doing updates to the website site. See previous posts.


DATE PUBLISHED: 1/24/2024 7:00AM

Lots of new guns and accessories coming and some used guns as well. Going to be working on ordering more guns and processing used guns today. See the Coming Soon and Just Arrived pages on this website. These pages are updated throughout the day!

I had someone buy a gun from a place in Bangor and when he came here and you should of seen his eyes light up when he saw my prices compaired to what he paid. He bought a gun from me and said I will back I promise. Most do not know the savings you will have when you shop here. My guns, ammo, and accessories are ALWAYS less! How do I know? I get feedback from customers everyday. They always say "I hate to tell you this but you know how much the other place is selling that same item for?" I just say I don't want to know but they tell me anyway. I tell them I still won't raise my prices. I have many say I am selling too cheap and my transfer fees are too cheap.


DATE PUBLISHED: 1/25/2024 8:00AM

Tried to post on Instagram, got flagged. Please share this page with everyone you can along with the coming soon and just arrived pages so they will know what is going on. My website has all the information a customer needs other than getting a quote on a gun I dont' have. Come with cash if it is a gun I can get and I will get it for you within a week at less then 99% of the shops around the area. You don't need to check my price before coming, I always have the lowest price. Just bring cash for the best price! Regular customer know this. Example of somethng i don't have in stock. Browning XBolt Hunter with wood stock 949.99 other places - my price 859 Cash Price. Stretch your tax refund further!

Don't buy anything without researching the price, checking my website, or you can even email me to see if it is a good price.

Processing some shipments this morning. A lot more coming in the next few days. I had customers complaining how high the prices were at the gun show. Only a few found some used guns but the new guns were over priced.  Also other customers complained how high another place was in Bangor. They were impressed with my ammo prices also. I try to always have the best prices on Guns, Ammo, and accessories. Bring cash and order firearms from me I will save you money especially guns priced over a 1000. Marlins and Henrys are still hard to get. Some distributors are making you buy 5 or more guns of their choosing in order to purchase a Marlin. Crazy!
