jbanzai 113 Posted December 23, 2012 Report Share Posted December 23, 2012 (edited) It's getting really old hearing all the whining and complaining about the current prices. There IS a point where I value the money my guns can bring more than the gun itself. When the market gets to that point, I will sell....not everything, but almost. You shouldn't sell that! Your prices are too high! That's not fair! All a bunch of socialist/communist BS. There are companies that are NOT taking advantage of the current inflated prices. They are not doing so because they are your friend or are considering your feelings. They are banking on the fact that any new legislation won't affect their business and they are looking to have an edge over other businesses in the future. A good thing in and of itself, but it is nothing more than a business strategy. There are a ton of ads on texasguntrader telling people not to sell and calling others out for selling for what they deem unreasonable prices. Someone posted an ad who finally got it right. http://texasguntrade...hp?a=2&b=273641 To anyone that doesn’t like the prices items are currently listed at: Thank you for being such a good steward of what other peoples items are worth in an open market. Everyone knows there will be legislation released very soon, and that it will not be favorable for the arms enthusiast. What we are seeing is capitalism, plain and simple. If one wants to sell an item, and another wants to buy it for that price, why are you upset? Perhaps socialism has crept in here. You do not want to pay that price, so you complain. Yet someone that will pay that price is an idiot, as are those selling it. It seems that you may want to force your will on others. Or perhaps you think someone else should set the price for what you own. Supply and demand has always been viewed with peaks and valleys. With demand high and supply low, prices go up. If the supply is high and the market is low, they go down. Almost every shop in America is sold out of high capacity magazines. Many stores are out of AR's, AK's and many pistols that utilize high capacity mags. Even tactical shotguns are now in short supply. Are the prices worth it? Maybe not, but again it is not for anyone to portray them as unreasonable so long as the buyer does not think they are. And if no buyer thinks it is given the current situation the seller will be penalized by not having a sale. And perhaps those that buy should have bought earlier. Remember the Clinton ban, brought about by then Senator Biden? Well, he will author this one as well. And I doubt that there will be any sunset provision in it this time. So to those that complain, I send a challenge. Stand up for what you say and go ahead and list YOUR items at the previous "reasonable" prices. Certainly you can practice what you preach. So here we are, all waiting for you to list your possessions so that you can show us how we should all be. end of soapbox Edited December 23, 2012 by jbanzai 4 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
