Today started at 6am to get ready for my first of 2 jobs I worked today. The first being my job as a Fire Instructor for a Local Fire dept/academy where I was teaching the Emergency Vehicle Operators Course (EVOC)today. While going through the class roster I notice a familiar face who happened to be the nephew and employee of the owner of a small but popular shop here in south Florida called Guntech. Great to deal with and very nice folks. Richard the owner is a pretty decent smith as well as are his underlings Phil and Cris.Anyway while chatting with his nephew Mike (my student) I asked if they had a Springfield GI Champ in stock as I havent been able to locate one and want to start using it for CCW. He responded they had 2 a LW and a regular and the price difference was $15 . I asked how much with tax and such and was quoted $590 out the door. I jumped at it and will hopefully paying it off next week. And to think I was going to settle on a american tactical or rock island. It really paid off doing a 19 hr day.. Not sure if it is a great deal but it seems like a decent price from what I have seen.
