    Depends on the actual retail price. If someone has an item at 40% of the retail price I probably won't try to get a lot more out of them. I'd think you're fine. You're only asking them to take a 12.5% discount. That's well within reason.

    Bingo. If my stuff is used, I google prices at Bud's and GA Gun Store as a baseline, and knock off 10-20% based on condition, what else mine comes with, etc... Only time I charge at retail is if my item is brand new, never fired 100% condition, probably has a holster or extra mags or something that a new one wouldn't come with.

    Been low balled a couple times, but not too much, mostly because my prices are usually pretty dang reasonable...

    my latest favorite
    post it for sale or trade then this
    I'm really just looking to trade for things I'm going to use more often but I'm mainly interested in rifles, semi auto in particular. Keep in mind I'm not desperate to let the thing go so if I don't see anything I really want then I'm not trading it.
