Lol. So now you think $100 is pretty fair? Personally if I walked into the shop I wouldn't be interested in the gun at $200.

Wow that last picture is a mind changer , the first pics I would have said you were taking a ride on the jerk wagon but that last pic tells the whole truth I would say you were in the ball park of $100-$140 with the pitting and refinish job . Glad you put that last pic up there I was gonna offer you $250 for it before that

I would buy it for $150 as a private buyer.

Exactly. It's hard to run a business if you only make $50 on your guns. We try to keep used gun prices at the lowest in the state and make $100 on the gun. Not the easiest thing to do. I can tell you for certain we are the only shop around where you will find a pre-ban glock for under $600.

Tell me about it. At 10% margins on a $400 gun people will still try and haggle you for a price drop. I understand getting a good deal but I have to pay the bills some how and I think a 10% margin is fair.

Not yet. We're still working on getting the computer system setup and inventory. I think expanding into online sales is on our to do list.
