Yep. It's that time of year again.

Last year I saw a dude carrying off SIX Rigid shop vacs from HD (at $24.95).
Later I saw these same shop vacs advertised on Craigslist for $50.00 (store
price, I think, was $75).

Oh yeah- 2 years ago, I think, BestBuy had the HP netbooks for 180
bucks, and for a couple months afterward CL and eBay were hip-deep in
them at 'only' 20 bucks less than the normal $300 retail price.

A lot of that going on. I tried the Black Friday game once, and will
probably never do it again. Just Not Worth It, unless there is a HELL of
a deal on something I actually need, versus just have hardware lust for.
I think some of the insurance carriers and local PDs are starting to get
****y at the whole routine (fights, traffic jams, tramplings, etc), but
so far the lure of the almighty buck for the merchants has outweighed
common sense.

Well, you CAN score some good deals. I got my first shop vac at WalMart for
$15 a few years ago. Last year I got one of the aforemention Rigid shopvacs
for $25. I got the HF Miracle Tool the first day it went on sale (Black
Friday). a 4" bench vise at Northern Tool for $15, and so on.

I agree it is foolish to strive for an item where "supplies are limited"
(the store's employees have already scarfed up the available stock).

Since I always carry one or two concealed handguns, I'm not too worried
about riots and such. Or getting to the head of the line.
