What do you think on a guy who said YES yesterday to trade a used .40S&W HK for my NEW AR180b. Just now he says NO-His "BUDDY" offered him alot of money for it! So what do all you think?

I think you just got out of a deal you would have regretted down the road.

That used H&K is not worth near as much as a new AR-180. You should send the guy flowers and a thank-you note. Might even give him a big-ol wet sloppy kiss if he ain't too ugly! [slap]

Thanks Folks...I needed that reality check. Oh he also said he wanted som cash too. I said NO. So I'm getting off easy.

Yeah, [b]W-W[/b], I think you got off easy. Used HK USP .40 looks like about $400 max, but your AR-180B should be $650 at least.

I like the 180b...I just haven't shot it . This part of VA is Ummmm Interesting...The only rifle range in the area is the NRA. I have a M15A4c, an AR10 and an M1A awaiting their turn. The 180 was just sitting there so I figured why not---Now I'm dealing w/a guy who thinks he's got the world by the ballz 'cause he's got Low Milage USP .45. Is he going happy when I say...wanna Guess?

All deals should be completed within 5 minutes of the decision. Granted, it would not have been a good deal, but still, if you really wanted it, you should have been prepared to do it on the spot.

As skewed towards him as it was, it blew my mind that he thought a could get a better deal...So I'm gonna let him. I'll just buy either a USP or a P229. I'm repurchasing all the fun toys I had before the Mkt took a header. The one that kills me most was that I so broke I sold a P7M8 for about 400 bucks...We at least I paid the rent that month[puke].

I guess the others answered it for me. NO TRADE is EVER equal. There is ALWAYS a 'sucker' and a 'scoundrel' whether intentional or not.

UPDATE. #2 Seller came back and said "OK"...I said "I'll Pass".

Whoa! Saved by the bell. NIB 180B > used HK USP .40
