    You've said I am a scumbag, dishonest, wrong, unethical, taking advantage ect., yet when asked to explain exactly why, you feel this way, you can't - you won't.

    You are the one with the problem and you can't articulate why you feel like you do.

    I buy and I sell things, they, are just things, for a living. That's how I butter my bread. I don't think ammo, mags, are any different than anything else.

    Let me ask again, how is flipping ammo any different than say the flight helmets I posted on another thread? I didn't pick those up to keep, (I'd love to) I got those to flip.

    I'm not making anyone buy my stuff. None of the stuff I'm selling is necessary to live, they are for people with disposable income. Hell, I'm not even setting prices, people are bidding what they want to pay. And if I sell face to face, no one has to pay my asking price - the buyer can walk at anytime. I'm not just talking about firearms related stuff, either.

    If you don't like it, that's your problem.

    Not just directed at you, but I bet this is gonna be my third thread that gets locked from people arguing with each other about things that aren't even relevant to the conversation.

    I've articulated it plenty well enough. You've said yourself you are fine with the person behind you in line getting nothing, while you get everything. You even had the cheek to say you would turn around and sell it to that person behind you in line. Sorry but that's just a scumbag in my book... and certainly not someone I would want to be friends with.

    That is why I've said what I said. How hard is that to understand?

    No you haven't. Why do you think others have been asking you the same questions? Your whole argument is nothing but emotion.

    No you haven't articulated it at all. You truly haven't.

    Why do you feel entitled to buy anything at below market prices?

    Why do you believe it is immoral or unethical to buy things and sell them at market prices?

    You can't or won't answer these two simple questions.

    In other words your opinion on how much someone makes for their time, or how much they want to make for their time, effort, and investment is more important and more valid than his own opinion and the opinion of the buyer.

    I think that's called dealing without a license. The ATF doesn't look kindly on these fellows.

    Yes, they do, but they're currently out of stock on everything.

    Man up and sell all the ammo you have for the price you paid and sell your weapons for less than you paid, since they're used. That would be your "fair" thing to do. That way the proverbial person behind you in line would be taken care of and you could feel good about yourself when you go to bed.

    Don't draw ethical lines that you forbid others to cross.

    I have no idea why you people keep giving me these ultimatums. I started out saying "A", and then you mixed up your thoughts and went straight to "D". What the hell happened to "B AND C". It's like someone criticizing something the government does, only to be told loudly by someone standing nearby "IF YOU DON'T LIKE 'MERICA, THEN YOU CAN JUST GIT OUT!"

    I'm just left going "....what? where did i say....what?!"

    Well, you got me there. There are nights I have a hard time sleeping because I am scheming in my head the path that I need to take so that I can have a shiny new 911 Turbo S sitting in my garage.

    Just the other night, I was having a hard time sleeping as I was searching armslist for an HK91. Those damn weapon hoarders. They want $3000 to $4000 for a used rifle that they probably only paid $700 for new. Those %$$^%% should be selling a USED weapon to me cheaper than they paid for it new since its used.

    Been away for awhile.... After reading a few posters, where to start.....

    Someone buys a product at a cheap price, but later sells it for more is ok. That is capitalism

    But, the same person who buys a product in demand at the time for a "cheap" price and sells for more is a scumbag with no conscience?

    Those that bought early anticipating future demand were the smart ones. This goes for any asset. The writing was on the wall.....

    Why are these people making them out to be the boogyman? Are they just pisssed that they are priced out of the current market when they want something they think should have same the value it held many moons ago?

    No they sure don't. However the whole notion that one should need a license to sell guns is pretty absurd so I support them 100%.
