    This is like the guy that drops $20k into his 2001 Plymouth Breeze to make it fast, and then think someone else will pay $18k for it. People are smoking some serious ****.

    that is insane. $3,500 for admittedly a "show piece." Not what I would spend my money on, for sure.

    I am just not sure how people come to the prices they set. Yesterday I saw a Dodge for sale locally. a 91 w/ diesel. asking $11k. auto trans. rotted roof. 250+ miles. it just boggles the mind. Kid prob paid 4k for it.

    Gee, never met a Glock that I didn't like out of the box. Underneath that garbage, might be what used to be a decent gun.

    Messaged the guy and asked why he was selling it after shooting just 5 rounds thru it.
    He told me there was nothing wrong and builds them all the time to sell. He must enjoy losing money or is stealing the parts to build them with and what ever he sells them for is pure profit

    I shoot steel with a guy who was a little faster than me with his Glock 34 that he put $1000-$1500 into vs my Glock 34 that I probably have put under $500 in. He wasn't happy with it still and went STI 2011. pistol, holster, mags getting tuned he is probably $4000 +/-. He is faster than before, but not enough. Now he is looking at an Atlas Nemesis... will be -/+$6000 all in. I’m sure he will be a little faster and I wonder what he will want next. I think that is what he enjoys about shooting...the search for the best. Maybe this guy was in search of the best Glock money could buy... no judgement from me, but selling it will be a tough deal, not a lot of buyers out there for those guns.

    Who does all that, goes to the range, fires 5 rounds out of a 15 rd magazine and then walks away?
    Unless the gun has frustrations and issues. I’m not buying the 5 rounds at all.
    Isn’t buying and reselling firearms for profit a crime unless you have an ffl? Not that I care, a man ought to be able to buy and sell what he wants.
    Like someone already mentioned, I’d offer him $500.

    After reading the ad, I know for a fact that my balls would be too low for that guy.

    Besides stupidity, how the heck does one spend $3500 on a Gen 3 Glock 19?!?
