    I am new to competitive shooting and am looking for my first all around sporting gun. I have narrowed my choice down to a Beretta 682 Gold Sporting. I have found many that are like new, but they are all priced over blue book by 500 to 800 dollars. Is that typical on the retail side.

    The price usually depends on if you are looking to buy it or sell it, thats where the biggest differences come in ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Bring cash and make a reasonable offer. I would suggest shooting the gun before buying it. It's nice to get a gun that shoots straight and does not beat you up. HMB

    Blue Book is a general guide line, mostly current and within reasonable price range, however, there're lots of sellers asking higher than retail. Check auction sites you'll see high prices don't sell.

    BTW, 682 is a very good choice.
