I am sure that you have noticed, but I have seen some wild prices out there. For instance, on gunbroker I saw several hi-point 995 carbines that people were looking to sell for $350 - $400... Bersa's going for $350...

I was at Gander Mt. and they were charging $225 for a tin of 7.62x54... :what:

Go look, not just gunbroker but everywhere. It is strange. Are that many people freaking out and panic buying??

Post your thoughts. Every area is different.

"Asking" price, doesn't necessarily mean "selling" price.

Well, people will tned to not buy from sellers who are gouging them. Hence they will have to drop their prices to be competitive. I don't necessarily think that some sellers gouging is a symptom of anything except there are some overpriced sellers out there.

I've seen a Lee Enfield rifle listed for over a year.

The seller has about twelve small photos included.

No such thing as gouging when there is more than one source of supply. No one is forcing you to buy from him. The buyer sets the price

Hehe How does it go "There's a sucker born every minute". I too would sell an item for more than it is worth if I had a willing buyer. I am a firm believer that the buyer is responsible for knowing what an item is worth, if not not my prob.

Used Sig SP2022 with two mags and Serpa holster for $500.

You can buy the gun and the holster brand new for $100 less than that.

Not that I have noticed.

As a seller, you set the price. It's simple. It's your property.

As a buyer, it is your choice to buy or not. A smart buyer will try to inform themselves as to the approximate going rate or a range on something they're interested in. It is up to the buyer to recognize a fair price.
