I got a Sig Sauer problem

I found a hard to find Sig, in fact I've found 2 at different places. Problem is I can't purchase before 10/25 due to low funds. One is one the floor on display for the world to get. They don't do lawaway. The other will take a $300 deposit but will take no less than 14 days to get. The OTD price is about $30 difference. Both are NIB
What a dilemma!!!! Ya feel my pain?????

That's not a Sig problem it's a personal funds problem.

Yes, which guns are we talking about here?

I know there are more guns than almost any budget would allow, but as long as you get one of them you will be doing good.

I see it as Sig's problem because the dealers don't have many in stock.
However if the funds were available I would have one.

I wanted responses on how to handle the situation, but no one wanted to
speak on that.

Buy it. Otherwise you'll keep saying "damn, I shoulda..." Plus, it's only money. You can always sell it later if funds become desperate. If they are that rare you shouldn't have any trouble selling it later.

Good luck!

Lol. This is hilarious. You could seriously just tell us the model i'm sure several members here can get one whenever you need it... Only reason I'd be is secretive about a Sig is if it was an original 210. not the repro.

Just tell us what gun so we can tell you weather to worry or not.

If its the 938 I wouldn't sweat it.

Yeah, there'll "always be another" but I wouldn't be too sure as to just when. It took me a long time to find a new TTT model in stock in a retail store anywhere close to me.

Doesn't seem like a Sig problem, seems like a money problem and I can't advise with that.

This thread is stupid and should be closed. This is not even a gun question if the OP won't say what gun it is. Paranoid someone on here will try to find out the store location and rush to buy it...really?!?

I love Sigs, but this is one does not appeal to me.

My recommendation is to take a home equity loan, and charge the interest off to taxes. While you are at it, pay off your primary loan with the home equity balance if you have a high interest loan.

If you do not own a home, stop buying guns and buy a house. As Susie Orman would say, financial security will bring you far more satisfaction than instant gratification.
