Sidenote: I'm going to alter how this type of thread is set-up. As opposed to having it just on-going, a new thread will be created every month or two to see how things are evolving as the months go by.

Today and tomorrow (7/1 and 7/2) Target has 2 Vaporizers for $5 USD (that's $2.50 USD each!). They also have CPS 4100's for $29.99 each. This is in Oklahoma, in the metro area.
Go get some Vaporizers!

At my local SA, I found more 2100s and one Monster X with the same prices as last year; 7.50 USD for the 2100, and 15.00 USd for the Monster X. They also had 310 re-colors, Flash Floods, Vaporizers, and, I believe, Hydroblades.

Any ideas on why some Targets have 4100s and some don't? I've gone to two Super Targets in my area, and neither had them (I live in Alabama BTW). I really want one.

it stopped working because of the max-d trigger. It seems like each day, they work less and less until they stop. Maybe the trigger mechanism on yours was weak, but, unfortunately, it's normal for them to stop working.
(my triple shot is starting to wear off and my flash flood wore off, and because it has a seperate pressure chamber, you can't control when it shoots, and it shoots about 2 feet.)
I figured as much. To me, the styling was its best quality. I returned it for a refund.

James, that's strange that you find no 4100's in Alabama. The 2 Target stores in Jackson, MS are saturated with them, so to speak. You may want to plan a day trip.

Cps 4100's are at my target stores. Too bad there isn't any Sports Authority stores nearby. :(

Man, I wish there were stores like Sports Authority, Kmart, Target.etc. in the United Kingdom. I really want a 4100 but all the stores where I am sell crap.

The best find I found was a while ago which was a CPS 2100 in the Gadget Shop. But that place has shut down. I knew I should have got the other two. Just glad I got one that I have not opened. Even the TRU that is a bit further away from me has nothing now.

Maybe one day I will find somewhere and get lucky. :(

If only there was somewhere round the UK near me that sold a good old Super Soaker sometimes without me having to resort to eBay or personal buying all the time. :(

Sorry if I am a bit off topic.

Anyway what I have found so far this year(nothing I am interested in):

Woolworths

Flash Flood - £15.99
WW Gremlin - £2.49
XP Backfire - £9.99
Max D 2000 - £5.99
Helix - £7.99

Toys'R'Us

Flash Flood - £14.99
Artic Shock - £14.99
Hydroblade - £14.99
Triple Aggressor - £19.99
Max D Secret Strike - £9.99
Non Super Soaker crap big gun - £19.99
Helix - £8.99

Index (Close Out Sale. Even cheaper now)

Flash Flood - £7.99
Artic Shock - £5.99
Triple Shot - £3.99
Aquapak Devastator - £12.99

Haha, this may sound a little weird but they're selling the new soaker tag line at circuit city. This is what I found searching in froogle.

Though I can't report any prices, my local K-Mart was actually competent for once. I found nearly the whole WW Pre-chargers line, another WW gun (the freaking huge one with I believe five nozzles and two pressure chambers), and a few different Super Soakers. I was tempted to get one of the Argon (I think, whatever the highest capacity one is) for $20, but I've just spent $44 on CPS 1500s, so I passed for now. They had TONS of these things.

All you lucky people, couldn't find anything decent at any stores near me. The best I found was triple shots.

Well, it's better than nothing. The triple shot is a very good pistol. I would recomend getting it if that's all you got.
