In years past, Cabelas ran Weatherby Pumps at that price, and seemed to be pretty decent guns. Might look at Gun Broker these days to see what's available from the on line retailers - Bud's in Kentucky has been good to work with for me, or check CDNN Sports website, their shipping is pretty cheap ummm $15 last time I looked.
