    Re: Firearm price

    I've had a post or two rated 1 star, didn't bother me as the items sold. Even if I knew who it was, what am I or you going to do about it? I don't think it's anything to get worked up over.

    I even wanted a section for asking about good pricing for firearms, that too was shot down, some bullshit about receiving a 1 star or not getting any PMs.

    Damn I drank alot, this was that thread lol

    Re: Firearm price

    This is by no way the scientific fact or any sort of law.... just a thumb rule that generally seems to work. Take the price of the gun new and subtract 10% for taking it off the dealers lot. If it has signs of heavy use, missing the box, mags, or otherwise doesn't look brand new- subtract another 5-10%. If you added any mods to the gun- add 25% of the mod to the gun (just because you paid $400 for a laser does not in any way make the gun worth $400 more!).

    This is just a bullshit ballpark value of what to ask. The only right answer to "What is my gun worth?"- is (whatever you are willing to accept for it).

    Just my .02

    Some Glock owners assume potential buyers are low-information types. ZOMG I have a G19SF (SF = Special Forces BTW) that comes with 1 hard to find 15rnd clip but can use those totes kewl 33rnd clips. Comes with the desireable plastic sites and my brother-in-law's neighbor stippled it for xtra grippiness.

    You try that crap over on the S&W Forum with a real collectible revolver and prepare to get ignored. There are entire threads about the difference between 99% and 98%. Yes, they will ask about the box, original grips, sights, etc.

    Douché: Pronounced "do-shay" and used like "touché", but in reply to something done or said that's utterly douchetastic e.g. "Wow, you went and did a selfie in the spray tan booth. Douché!"
