So, I have a friend who's a single mom, doesn't have a ton of money, but wants to buy a pistol or two. She'd like a small 9mm for carry and a .22 so she can teach her kids to shoot. Well guess what? She can't afford both with the current prices and trying to pay bills. So she calls me the other day to ask if I can help her find a decently priced gun. I say sure, I know this great website, you can buy used guns from nice guys at good prices. Then I hop on the site and start looking... ... only to discover that all of the guns that fall into the (usually) affordable and reliable category are priced so high that there's no way she can afford any of them. I was actually ashamed that she was looking at the same guns here that I was. Now, she's looking at buying a .22 LR for protection because its the only thing she can afford. I also sold a gun on here not too long ago. Someone PM'd me to mention that the gun was going for $100 more than I had listed it for. I know. I listed it where I did because that's what I bought it for used, and I don't feel right making another hundred bucks when I know that it could keep a good, hard working person from buying a good gun, just because everyone else is doing it. Now I do understand a free market economy. If people want to pay double what something normally costs just because the governmental boogeyman is threatening to take them away, that's on them. But we as a group can reverse that trend and help new shooters and fellow gun owners get into shooting. So the point of this rant is, I suppose, it's easy to do something if everyone else is doing it. It's a little harder to do the right thing when it's not popular. So to all of you who raised your prices, thanks for keeping hard-working single moms from buying decent defensive pistols. Thanks for keeping hard-working guys from being able to buy ammo so they can take their wife out and let her practice. When everyone everywhere is trying to get our guns and ammo taken away, we as responsible gun owners should be supporting each other. We can keep prices low enough on forums like this that everyone can buy guns and ammo and afford to shoot them.
