    Some idiot with buy it. Lowers selling for 4 times what they sold for 3 months ago same with BCGs and many other things. Let the suckers piss away their money.
     


  3. When I looked they had been re-listed for $1350 or buy it now for $1400. Capitalism at its best.

    No such thing as "gouging". It's called the Free Market, albeit for suckers stupid enough to pay these prices.

    Caveat emptor.

    So let me ask you this.

    When a New York resident purchased a lower, or maybe a complete rifle, and received it days before their new AWB passed...do you think all of the people who called them retards, idiots, or suckers leading up to that were proved right, or prove to be idiots themselves?

    Why do so many among us feel the need to insult others for buying guns?

    Are you really that much better than them??

    I call it "gouging" when you can get 1000 rounds of 9mm for $150-200 less if you actually shop around. Maybe "gouging" isn't totally accurate. How about "stupid"?

    I wouldn't call it "gouging". It's not like they are selling food/water/fuel/medicine after a local emergency and people would/could die w/o the supplies. People are just in full panic/manic mode.

    My friends that listened to me, have thanked me for my sage advice, the ones that didn't wished they did.

    If people would just stop buying these way over priced items, the price would drop overnight.

    Auction ended, zero bids.

    Just because that's what they're asking, doesn't mean that's what they're getting.

    This pretty much sums it up. A person came on earlier today, a new member of Gt asking an honest question they felt they needed to ask about the safety of carrying a weapon a certain way and in the first 10 posts we had at the very least 3 chairborne commandos that insulted this person for asking it.

    I guess expecting more is to much to ask.

    WooHOOO! Only $1.50 a round. I'm going to buy every bit of it, and resell it at next weeks gunshow for some real profit! :devildance:

    (When this stops, it will stop; but not before)
