Ice Shows and Augers

6 posts in this topic

I know this is kinda "Crystal Ball"ish but Fleet Farm has the Strikemaster Mag 2000 Power Auger 8 1/4" on sale for $289.99 until the 22nd. Does anyone know if I'll be able to find it cheaper at the Ice Show? Thanks.

I doubt you will find it for cheaper than that and if you do you will need to include the price you paid for parking and the ticket to get in, plus the other stuff you may buy. Pick it up from FF. If you go to the show and find it cheaper, then return it at FF.

Welcome. If you figure in gas, parking, food etc. you will do way better with the deal at FF.

I would still go to the show though. wink

I don't know if it matters, but usually when they are priced that low they are factory reconditioned. They carry the same full factory warranty and have a new auger on them. You can't tell the difference between a recon and a new one, some people are just get a bit funny about the reconditioned augers.

Oh I'll be at the show! You can count on that! smile I haven't made a big purchase like an auger in the past though and was wondering if they were discounted to that degree at the show. Thanks for the replies. I've been a "lurker" here for quite awhile but not a big poster... Not enough time in the day!

Big DS, I don't think this a reconditioned unit, normally if it was a recon it would be listed on the ad. If you look at the ad closely, it is listed as a "Strikemaster Magnum Plus. Never heard of this model before. Maybe it is a special model released by SM only thru FF, the SM site does not list it.

In the picture it looks like a Mag2000. $289 is tough to beat, especially with the cust service backing of SM.

    •   I'll take them over walleye any day!!!
    • Ya know, it had been a while since I checked in here.  Seems the climate certainly has changed from the days when guys like Dietz Dittrich & Rob Kimm would foster some awesome discussion topics about fishing & the outdoors.  I'm sorry to see what this place has become.     To the guys who offered up honest answers to my inquiry, I thank you.  As for the rest of you, no wonder this once-great forum no longer is.  About the only reply missing to my initial question was, "Hey, you shoulda been here yesterday!"  Have fun liking each other's witty, zany posts, and enjoy the circle-jerk this forum has become.  From the sounds of things, you puds deserve each other.  Enjoy!
    • we have three other ones already.... but of a hoarder I guess lol
    • You guys wanna hear something funny?,  after all this jabber about the Bushmaster I dropped by the gun counter to see what the hell they were. You are right and so was I.....a very inexpensive plastic appliance sorta firearm.  I believe you are all correct it is an adequate weapon and from what I gather very dependable. If I want a simple, inexpensive weapon to repel boarders  I guess it would do so it may well be what the kid is looking for. Funny part is, a new Beretta 92FS left the store with me!  As you already know THAT is a serious and well crafted piece of machinery!! Ha Ha! And no,   I didn't need it. But it is big enough and heavy enough you could beat to death a charging buffalo!
    •   +1.  Any caliber outside of a BB gun will penetrate drywall.    
    • Do a google search of walnut hollow country turkey mount They make nice real wood ones   I ordered mine from them on amazon as it was cheaper on there for some reason They make ones without the picture on it if that's your style
    • Bushmasters are not bad I have shot a couple and they work just fine. Just think of it as a chevy Malibu. Yes there are Camaros and Corvettes out there but they come with a price. If you are just needing to get to work and back the Malibu is just fine if you want to go to the track the corvette is better. I am getting the drift he wants the gun in case you know what hits the fan well in that case the bush master will do. If he wants to do some serious shooting or competition 3 gun or whatever I would suggest otherwise.         As far as the wall penetrating debate Its all hog wash unless you are hitting studs the bullet is going through drywall with the exception of birdshot will stop after a wall or two     
    •   The importation of AKs was banned during the Obama administration, but there were a lot of them imported prior to the ban, so they are still available.  Probably not at big box stores, though.  You would have to shop around, and some of them bring high prices due to the mods made to them.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/banning-russian-made-ak-47s-sets-off-a-us-buying-frenzy/2014/08/31/ad6cbbde-2e0a-11e4-994d-202962a9150c_story.html
