Who is going to keep the merchandize? Why should I dole out hundreds of dollars if I can't play with the toy as often as I can?
Yes, I am VERY selfish when it comes to guns!!!
Thanks for the explanations.
You have the concept wrong.
It isn't a bunch of people owning the same gun.
The whole purpose of a "Group Purchace" is the power of collective buying. You get a better price when you buy 50 loaves of bread than when you buy just one.
A group of people get together, and pool thier money in order to get a better price on the desired object.
When you buy in bulk, you have more leverage, and are able to negotiate a better deal/price for the goods. I this case someone volunteers to mediate between the buyer
( you, me) and the manufacturer (Bushmaster, American Spirits etc,) and brings to the table an order of fifty or more (just a number). In this way the seller will give us a break, then some one with a FFL pick up all the goods, and sends them to your FFL , It takes much longer than just going to the store and get one of the shelf, but in the long run, you save two or three hundred dollars.
