[b]Paradigm shift. Your buddy paid maybe 5 or 10 dollars for the ticket, right? Instead of asking top dollar for it, would he consider accepting a much lower amount with the stipulation that it go to a newbie Highpower shooter that can't afford a good gun to start with?[/b]
First, if he were willing to take a substantially reduced offer (say, several hundred dollars less), I would buy it myself and start back into HP. So, the answer is I sincerely doubt it. Again, its not my rifle. I am just listing it as a favor. Of course, there is no harm in making a reasonable offer, or any offer for that matter.
