    Yep. that is what the first one to hit gun broker sold for. Now the guy has shipping, his ffl and maybe sales tax. All that for an unproven weapon with a dealer cost of $595 and an MSRP of around $850. This is what happens when this mess is blown up with hype on gun blogs and in advertising. I hope the fool that bought it loves it and it runs like a swiss watch for him 'cause he sure is stuck with it.

    WOW! :shocked::faint:

    Well, I hope he's happy with his purchase. I'll stick with my proven 870 and Mossy 500.

    I'll pick up a KSG in a year or so as long as prices are down, and the bugs are worked out. Even then, it'll be a range toy. If something goes bump in the night, my 870 is what I'm grabbing.

    I mised that and though there was a bid. That dealer is a thief to start an $850 MSRP weapon out at $2,200. He is the kind that will be selling bottles of water for $10 after a natural disaster.

    I agree. Well, its his business, so I suppose he can sell it for what he wants. I will say that I am more apt to call the people bidding on the gun for those prices idiots, more-so than I'll call the seller an idiot for selling the gun for that much.
     
  6. Besides knowing nothing about them, those things are ugly!! Paint it orange and purple and it would pass as a Nerf toy gun. I wouldn't trade a $200 870 for that thing.

    I'll look for a used one in a year or so after the recall.

    I did not call the seller an idiot. I called him a thief.

    somewhere the thought had to cross his mind

    four Mossburg 930 spx, or maybe one tacticool Benelli M4



    Keltec KSG - first shotgun made by a company that its warrenty only covers the first the first owner, and is being sold wayy above MSRP, and has a spotty reliablity and recalls are the pun of the gun world

    --- yes I will take the Kel-tec

    Wow, you've started 2 threads and posted in another. I don't understand the big deal? Free market is determining the price. How is that a bad thing?

    I already stated I wouldn't buy one at that price but for for $700? Sure.

    How much were those Tickle me Elmos or Cabbage Patch Dolls at Christmas time when Toys R Us were sold out of them?

    My only complaint is that I don't have that much extra cash to blow on toys.

    I'm not sure the seller is a thief as much as he is a smart businessman. Buy 3 at dealer pricing, sell 2 for 4X the original price and the 3rd one is free. :supergrin:

    I don't think like that and I am a Dealer. I see things different and those dealers are stealers. It is not OK to take advantage of the stupidity of people. I could do that several times a week and I do not. I take pride in that. I gues you just can't understand a guy like me Sharkey.
     
  18. I was thinking the same thing. The man seems to be taking the whole KSG thing personal.

    At least it provides him an opportunity to tell us how ethical he is...:yawn:


    Of course now we understand how stupid he thinks other people are and of course he takes every opportunity to point it out....:upeyes:
