Typically I avoid the teeming masses who drive the Black Friday shopping frenzy. But on this occasion, and armed with the ad for Bass Pro , I made the journey. Arriving 45 minutes prior to the 5 am opening, the long line of shoppers made me fear I was already too late. But I stuck it out and by 5:10, I was downstairs and in the gun department. Scanning the sales counter I found a ticket dispenser and I pulled “91”. Unfortunately they were on “68”. Killing some time, I wandered around looking at other sale items. Then I noticed several customers looking at Kimber pistols and they all presented a second “blue” ticket. When I inquired at the register, the cashier informed me that they were out of pistols already. It was now 5:15.
Here’s my beef: 1) Make it clear what the procedure is regarding the second “blue” ticket. 2) Plainly state the “Quantities are limited”. 3) Allow “rainchecks”.
What a disappointing experience!
