I dont plan on buying anything in the next few months. Mostly because I know what they are actually worth and wont be gouged by panic pricing. I wonder how many people within this forum were complaining about companies raising prices, like $50 $60 for a pmag, but are gleefully charging double for their own wares?....

Makes ya wonder....

Yeah, its their own fault for over-paying and not knowing what they are buying.... but.... still. Its the gun community taking advantage of its own. Certainly lets you know who you can trust.

Not everyone is price gouging. Prices in my store haven't changed. If someone is willing to pay $2k for a $1500 rifle, I'm good with selling them the rifle. It's supply and demand. Besides I need the money as I have to keep turning down work because I can't get parts.

$400!? I paid $99 for it early last year.
You must be very proud. You just sold a lower to an idiot because they are the only ones who would pay those prices. Congratulations.

They took down a couple items I listed. A cleaning kit and mag pouches. They claimed they were assault rifle accessories. I called up their so called specialist and tore them a new one. They are still trying to hide behind California law which they couldn't properly represent to a gunsmith that knows the law and items better. I reposted the items and they removed them again anyway.

Yeah they pissed me off pretty good. I don't know of a better place to use though. Gb is a pita to deal with.
