Looking for a deal vs being insulting

I'm going to pick up a P2000SK 9mm this week from a local gun shop. They always have them in stock and there list price is $790. This is for the DA/SA model and not the LEM trigger. When I first started looking at these they were $811 at buds gun shop (and never in stock) and now they're $852 for some reason plus $25 to transfer it.

Even used on here they're going for $600-$800. So this is already a good deal. I'm going to pay cash either way and I know cash talks and you can get a deal almost anywhere when you start waving cash around. How much should I try to get him to come off the price, if any at all.

790 is a good price.
I'd buy it.

I've never been the kind who demands a good "deal"
before he can make a purchase.

I want it, I see it, I buy it.
Price has always been incidental.

Exactly! Value is king!

No matter how old the post is.

Yeah, that's a pretty good price new, ballpark anyway. Of course you have to factor in local sales taxes too. I have a deal in the pipeline, since I don't have the gun yet I hate to talk. It's an H&K with less than 100 rounds at a fair savings over retail. Of course one has to factor in transfer,shipping & all. I don't have a problem with a few rounds through the gun if all else checks out.

I try not to low ball to much, especially if the deal is reasonable. I had a guy a while back say not only was my offer to low, he was going to block my e-mail. I guess I peeved him off some. I just check prices & see what things are SELLING for. I may factor in the benefits of an easy FTF cash sale. I think it can be easier to get a few freebies thrown in than getting the price down a bunch. When selling you have to be ready for some lowball offers. That reminds me of a garage sale I had ONCE.

I thought about that as well. I'm in the market for weapon light for my HD gun, but he only carries Surefire and ITAC and I don't want either of those. I guess I could try to shoot for some ammo?

That's a damn good price for a NIB P2000SK. The dealer is almost at his cost on that pistol, so I wouldn't try to low ball at that price. Get it.

yeah, plus I really like this gun store, so I don't mind supporting him if I'm not paying the absolute lowest price. I'm going to pick up the gun tonight. Maybe I'll just ask if he offers a cash discount and leave it at that.

Woo Hoo!

Well, I went ahead and got it for the $799. Out the door it was $862. I did ask about the cash discount. She kindly said no and we proceeded on. I complicated the matter by getting there 10 minutes before closing. I didn't feel like I had much time for negotiating.

However, I'm super pleased with the gun. I love the size of it and it feels so good in my hand. I can't wait to go shoot it. I do want to get some flat floorplates for the magazines, but can't seem to find them anywhere. If anyone has any recommendations let me know.

Here is the required picture after a new gun purchase. Since I didn't take the time to photoshop the serial number I just covered it up with the key.

little too late here but i paid 500 for my like new in box p2000sk in 9mm V3, with AI date code. I lucked out and others were asleep on gunbroker. only thing it did not have was the extra mag and back strap, I've got a usp compact 9 and purchased some x-grips to cover up the part that is exposed. Point is if you are willing to wait and look you can find a smokin deal.
