I said, you know, I can buy these on the web for $250 delivered. Is your price going to come down now that the ban is dead? His response: Do you know how much I have into this thing?

I guess he'll end up having a $500 knick knack gathering dust at the store. I can't imagine anyone paying that much simply because the dealer got caught by a market price adjustment.

Also, I was a little surprised at how small it was - the drums seemed to be about the size of oranges - I thought they were more like cantaloupes based on the pictures I've seen.

Gotta get me one! (from an online dealer that is.)

I agree. If he had that much into it, you would think he would have unloaded it sooner.

That's what happens when you don't pay attention.

Hey! I've got some preban lowers that I'll sell him at a hell of a deal! Does he want to know how much I have in THOSE? lol.

What is this "waste of ammo" you speak of?

"Cutting losses" is an unpracticed art in the industry.

I know, but people are ok in that they lose $1,000's of dollars in their vehicles or boats and such, oh but a gun or mag "no I cant sell it to you for that I might lose some money"

I dont get dealers like this.

So he loses some on the mag...so what? He'll make it up on his markup on EVERYTHING else in the store. Might take a little while....like ONE gun he bought used getting sold.

Some people are idjits, and that just cant be changed.

Do you think a Beta C would work with 6.8 SPC? Would be an interesting test. Anyone care to speculate if the price will go below 250?
