Classifieds. I'm not going to name names and if I'm way out of line let me know. I have a firearm in the classified section and someone offers me a trade. Here is what transpired. Conversation starter; "no luck on selling your ??? yet, I finally found a ??? yours would look nice beside it but I spent all my money LOL . I really dont have anything to trade other than a new ??? with ??? doubt that would be any interest to you LOL" My reply; "How about my ??? and $$$ for your (other item in the classifieds)? Response; "thank you but I cant I need to sell the stuff I have listed for cash to pay for some things I ordered. the only thing I have to barter with is the ??? unfortunately" My reply; "You're pretty tricky. Trying to trade a ??? for a ??? straight across. ;-)" Response; "Not sure where you came up with that conclussion. I didnt ever say anything about astraight across trade i said its all i have to barter with its new in box im into it with ??? just a little over $$$ so in asking $$$ for it id be adding $$$ if you would of been interested but by no means was i trying to be "tricky" thanks for your time" 8 minutes later; "I was trying to put together some deals with some friends so i could just buy thr ??? out right with cash, but after a comment like that about me im sorry no longer interested" So I'm thinking my tricky comment might have been a little rude but I put a little winky ";-)" next to it. Can't fault the guy for trying to make a good deal. First I thought he said he spent all his money? I offered my item and $$$ that equaled his asking price on the other item that he needs to sell but if he sold it he would apparently have the cash to buy me out??? I just don't get it. Just as a reference, the cheapest I can find my pistol new online for is 79% of MSRP. I have it listed at 63% of MSRP and 80% of the lowest price I can find used. Why would I give someone more than new value for their used as a trade? Thanks for letting me vent.
