So in the last month I have had conversations with 2 dealers that seem to border on unethical. 1. I calling every kahr dealer off of their website to find a cm9. I found a dealer just outside of Portland that had one. He was the only one who had one and he happen to just get 3of them in. When I asked him the price he said he did not know as he had not checked them in yet. I asked if he could give me an estimate and he said around $525, I asked him to double check it was a cm9 and he assured me it was correct I thank Ed and told him I would call him back later. I called every other kahr dealer between Portland and Salem no one had one. I called him back and asked him if he could check in the item and give me the true price. He told me again 525. Is aid but msrp is 517he told me so what. I asked if I could get a discount if I bought two considering I would have to drive 2.5 hours to come get them he said no discounts buy it if you want they are 525. So I hung up. The next day I asked a friend to go to the gun show to see if they had a cm9 there surely enough they did. He eagerly called me. The price. 388. " really no way" double checked with the dealer to make sure it was a cm9 and it was brand new. How can someone try to gouge you by so much money. And still be in business? 2. Was talking to a random guy looking at a gun magazine to find out he owns a gunshop. "Sweet sounds like fun". He said yea he just got a shipment of ak's and is selling them for 1200 I said not bad considering. He said considering he still buys them for the same price as he did before but now he can mark them up like crazy he is making tons of money. Wtf why would you tell me that. I'm never going to step one foot in your store EVER My question is Is it unethical to skyrocket prices just because you can. Even if your costs are the same? Is that just business? I would think selling guns you build relationships and people will return. And word will spread about you. That is how it works in my field people come to me because I treat my customers with kindness and respect. I give them all my very best. They come to me and tell me so and so told me you would take care of me. And I promise them I will and do.
