Default am I just being a butt hurt sand stuffed vag, or would this piss you off?

I may be! it has happened before

so I have this for sale:
Glock 36 .45 with night sights and lazermax guide rod - Great Lakes 4x4. The largest offroad forum in the Midwest

Quote:
glock 36 .45 auto. The gun, Lazer max, night sights, box, 3 mag's
everything as new except mag loader.
and it has a Houge grip on it

Also have a belt holster and extra battery caps for lazermax that goes with it.
add it all up and it's around a grand new.

I get a PM today that says:

Gun
I got 300 cash? let me know.

I respond with: the Glock? NOT A CHANCE IN HELL! Just for you $750 today only.

he says he is a dealer and can get the gun for $450

so am I supposed to give this guy all the extras because he is a dealer?

Suck it up buttercup.

People low ball all the time. At least he didn't offer a dune buggy, paintball equipment, or car audio crap.

I had a person make a low offer on something I was selling the other day. I declined without even consulting the GL4x4 Pub.

It annoys the shit out of me as well. I had a brand new canoe on craigslist for $300, which I bought for $450 just two months before and only had in the water once. Got an email an hour after I posted it saying, "$100 cash? let me know if your interested"

I told him "It's $400 for you, let me know if you want to quit being a lowballing asshole."

Then, sold it for my asking price about 2 hours later.

Asking less than half the asking price? I wouldn't even respond.

If he is a dealer, why not buy new?

When I was selling my last pickup I had it listed on CL. This "foreign" guy called and listed off all of the awesomeness of another truck and how it was cheaper...but for some reason liked mine(yeah right) just not the price. Well I told him, "That sounds like an awesome deal, if I were you I would go buy it." He said he would.

Then he called me a few weeks later, obviously forgetting who I was. I asked him about the other truck, silence, click. LOL

Cool story eh? lol

I get it all the time on craigslist also but this is the first time I have had someone cut my price that far on GL. guess I don't sell enough stuff! lol
I raised it $100 for him and said today only, thats when he said he was a dealer

I am in no hurry to sell the gun because I carry it. So untill someone trades me what I want or pays my price to buy what I want I'll keep it.

Most of the time you are better off selling the accessories separate from the handgun. If someone wants the gun but not the extras they might make an offer like the extras aren't even there.

It's all about supply and demand. If demand is low and something is for sale for a while you will get lower offers. Lowball or just low is in the eye of the beholder. Sometimes it is just what the item is worth to the buyer. You have to decide what it is truly worth to you, stick to it, and ignore the low offers.

I have a set of 53's for sale that I was offered 1/4 of what I was asking. I just said no thanks and moved on. I can afford to sit on them for a while but if I couldn't, he might have gotten a great deal.

You have had it forsale for over a month, which tells me you are having an issue getting rid of it. It's listed for 650... If you actually wanted to get rid of it, you could have countered at 550.... see what he comes up...Personally I can get a use glock .45 for under 500 all day, every day. Anybody can get a brand new S/W .45 for 650. I think you are just butt hurt.

Just let it go. It's Craigslist, nothing can be taken seriously.
