There are far too many LGS guys like him.

I was watching a LGS owner one day tell a customer that his MK5 Weatherby was a POS because it was made after WW2. He actually told the customer that all of the quality Weatherbys were pre WW2.

I don't deal with bullsh!t artists, so with one exception, I try to not patronize LGS.

Wal-Mart, or online.

Why not sell on Armslist, directly to buyer? Tradeins are a loosing game anyway.

I'd almost never trade anything in. I know the guys, they said they look up the price, get an average and subtract about 35% to make an offer. They offered me $150 for a Ruger Mark III 22/45 stainless model that I turned around and sold on Armslist for $350. (and that was back in September)

There was one LGS that I used to LOVE but they since closed down. :-( guy there told me once that they won't buy something unless they know they can flip it for double what they paid.

On a similar note to the OP, I'm getting frustrated with the ****ing price gouging! I understand raising prices on AR's and such but when the only shops that have ammo are the ones selling it for 1.50 a round that tells you something. I was at one such shop yesterday.

Been in the mindset of an investor. Buy low buy low buy low. Figured everyone is focused on Semi autos and such. I'll pick up some bolt actions and wheel guns because there's not a mad dash for them. Guy had a Ruger SP101 for $899. Ruger has the MSRP for the exact gun at $559. Asked him if the pope owned it before he resigned then walked out. Sick of it.
