Ok I am really annoyed and need to get it out. For the last few weeks I have been trying to decide what rifle to get. I originally was going to go with a savage 11 to hunt deer with after asking you guys advice about its quality etc. Anyways I go to my closest gun shop( I live in Illinois...yes please do feel sorry for me) about 1.5 hours away and I see a used Remy 700 CDL in 300WSM. Now I know it is a expensive and powerful round but I loved the feel and build of this rifle. The wooden stock did it for me.I did not have a clue how much this rifle costs new and they were asking 850 for it. So there I was drooling over it and the guy was giving me the hard sale. I asked would he drop the price or at least throw in some ammo. I got a big NO Way answer. My wife was with me and was in a hurry so I said I would return the next day ( yesterday). Like a kid I got on the web and tried to find out as much as I could about the Remington 700. The first thing I find out is I can get in new for 800-850 in various stores. Im thinking this cant be right or maybe I am looking at the wrong model. So last night I go back to the store and confirm that it is the same rifle that is selling for 800-850 . The guy at the shop go checks this out and says "yeah it is 850 new but the one he was selling is almost like new so he is charging the same price as a new one". He basically was rude and couldnt care less. Is it just me? am I missing something? No matter how good the condition it should be sold at a lower price of a new one. If this was not the closest gunstore I woudl tell him where top go and never go back again.
