    Got this from Clay Target Sports this morning:

    This email is being sent to everyone on our Skeet distribution list as a courtesy.

    We have no indication from Krieghoff International as to what the January 2008 price increase will be. What we do know is that the Euro is at an all time high against the dollar.
    Based on the Euro/Dollar relationship, we are expecting a significant price increase for 2008. If your plans include buying a new Krieghoff in the next six months, you might want to consider doing it in 2007 while lower prices are still in effect.

    Look for the same to happen to Perazzi. Looks like Kolar is becoming more of a deal all the time LOL.

    Look at the value of the dollar against the Euro. A 5 - 6% increase for the American market would not come close to fair exchange. My best guess is that they would have to raise the price much more than that to make up for the declining dollar. Canadians look to have a better fate at this time.

    IMHO

    This is just more bull-S&*^%. I can remember when the dollar was worth more than the Euro but the dam price didn't come down!

    I got my notification from the same people who claim free upgraded wood with each new Krieghoff purchase but then I found out that they sell their K-80's about $1,000 higher that everyone else. Doesn't sound like a free upgrade to me.

    Lumper- Would you rather pay 10K for a gun you bought on 07, or 10.5K b/c you waited til Jan 1 08?

    I'm happy with the Kolar I acquired about a month ago. Bought two raffle tickets at the Skeet U.S. Open for a total of $100. Won a new Kolar with tube set and case. Best hundred dollar shotgun I ever got. jd

    lumper- The way to get an extra $10,000 is to pay attention to saving $500 now and then.

    I had lots of offers. Remarkable how many of your buddies want to doouble your money. I think I will keep that Kolar. I certainly couldn't afford to buy such a gun. jd

    RHG, Some shooters buy for investment, some buy to enjoy their use. You just keep your unfired, NIB guns in the safe and someday your widow will be worth a small fortune. That is if your lucky enough to find a woman. My Ljutic might be worthless to you but you can't afford to buy it.
