Honestly, there are so many good deals on new guns right now that has been able to keep me occupied lately.
    Absolutely. Itís a buyerís market for sure. About the only thing that is not at an all time low is ammo and components. Hopefully those prices will come down before everything goes up again.
    Doesnít play well with TROLLS...

    I've sold other things on the classifieds here, and had a few not sell as well.

    I always try to price my items fairly.

    When I see a used pistol listed for $145 more than I can purchase it for, retail, brand new, it matters not to me how lightly, or gently, it was used.

    When posting classified ads, please do a little research. Nobody cares how bad of a decision you made when you over paid for that gun you no longer want.
    You should expect to take a loss on a firearm that is modern production, if you bought it new and now it's used. I don't care if you brought it home, opened the box and only carried it once. It's a used gun.

    I'll passive aggressively vent my frustrations here, in an obscure thread, in a very 'off topic' manner, instead of taking a dump in somebody's classified ad.

    Thank you for listening. (reading)
    BRAVO!!!

    down here everybodys "crap" is "special" and they think they can get retail for a 10yr old item.
    then they get angry if you offer a reasonable(current market value) amount, calling you a "cheap ass and lowballer".
    Same as out west too. It seem like a lot of folks in southern Louisiana are unable to differentiate between the retail purchase price of a thing and that thing's inherent value after the purchase. Maybe I should get mad at the car dealer that won't give me trade in value of 5% over MSRP for my 5 year old truck too.

    Well I grew up in south western Pennsylvania and we have almost nothing in common with people from NY city or Philadelphia. My wife grew up in rural Mississippi and we have more in common then those people. So not everyone who happened to be born in the north likes bargain and negotiate.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.
