As I have related on another post, I won a NIB Springfield Mil-Spec last night at a Friends of the NRA dinner. Well, I am not a bog fan of the mil-spec features, so I'm thinking to myself that I might trade it. Now, the gun shop I picked it up from deals almost exclusively in used guns (they just handle the transfer for the prizes) and they don't really have anything I'm looking for. Anyway, 30 minutes after I picked the gun up I went to another gun dump and asked what they could do for me on a trade-up for a new loaded Springfield. Now, as I am asking the guy this and he is looking over my obviously NIB gun with the tag still hanging off it, I look down and see the exact same gun for $479, with the same box, same accessories, etc. I figured "hey, these guys will offer me $450, make $29 off my gun, sell it for $479 just like the one in the case (so it essentially like giving them $479 in cash), and then make a decent profit off the new loaded version I want to trade up for. All in all, a pretty good deal for them. This kid heads to the back to talk with the owner and comes back in a couple of minutes. "We'll give you $350 for it." I am astounded. "What??!! You have the exact same gun in this case for $479, plus you would be making profit off the loaded version." He just stares back, unblinking, and says nothing. I say no thanks and leave. What in the world are these people thinking? Do they actually not want to sell guns?
