    Unless you count surfing the web for bargains, I will be among thosenot venturing into a retail establishment the day after Thanksgiving - especially NOT one that is advertising for the purpose of drawing huge crowds of shoppers.

    First, the places will be crowded. I do not like crowds (has nothing to do with PTSD, although that adds to my dislike of crowds). Crowds make it more likely that one will be bumped. Crowds make it more lilkely there will be pickpockets working the crowds. Crowds make it more likely emotions will be on edge, and that road rage will continue inside as shoppers are cut off by carts and obnoxious family teams hell-bent on getting that last Laughing Hysterically Elmo doll. http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...ct_id=10040333

    Second, the only items I would want to buy are either out-of-stock or have increased so much in price that I cannot afford them. Just search for evil guns or .45acp ammo and see what I mean.

    Third, because there will be crowds (see above) there will be no available parking spaces (see comment re: road rage above).

    Finally, this is my usual luck looking for Black Friday bargains

    stay safe.

    Sounds like most of us hate crowds.

    Like others, I'll be open carrying, but won't go near a mall.

    With luck I'll be OCing a .308Win in the woods.

    (Without any luck I'll be driving my truck back to Blacksburg because I couldn't get out of town quick enough after dinner Thursday).

    I might go out and look around. I like to watch people/observe. And sometimes crowds can be fun. I will definitely OC if I do.

    I might OC when I go to my parents' place to eat left overs.

    There is no point in getting up at the crack of dawn to have to claw your way through a crowd to save a few dollars on some crappy sale item. I played that game for the first time last year.

    If I had worked a good side job the same amount of time I spent standing in line freezing and waiting on the store to open, I probably could have made enough extra cash to pay full MSRP for the item I went after. It's a stupid, stupid waste of time.

    Besides, most people are just out to get electronics on the cheap and then put them on eBay where you can still get them well below retail. So sleep in, stay warm, and click around some later that day.

    I might have to venture out on BF. Dick's Sporting Goods has a buy one get one at 50% off sale on boxes of ammo. Limit 6. Might have to bring the wife and make a few trips through the cash register to make it worth it.
