Hey all, I was curious if I am the only one that thinks the prices for used guns on this forum or any other source are completely un-realistic? It is my opinion that a used gun is worth much less than that of new, with the exception of highy desired collector peices. For example A HK USP new sell's for just over 800.00, a used one is listed for 750.00, how is a 50.00 discount an actual depreciation of market value for a used handgun? Sig 556 rifle- 1700.00 new, used 1600 who would see this as a bargain? I for one don't understand why someone would pay this when they can buy new for not much more I for one do not see the value especially now when Americans should be expecting more for every dollar they spend. Just a decade ago it would be fairly common to find ordinary folks selling used guns on tables at gun shows at a fair price, now it is rare and the show's I have been to are dominated by dealers who gouge the uninformed patrons at just about every table I have seen. If I intended to pay retail I would just simply go to a FFL dealers shop, it's because of this that I have all but given up on going to gun shows much anymore to find a good deal, even ammunition is rediculous, and after my visit's to the show's in Portland and Monroe I am curious to see how many other members have had similar thoughts and experiences with this?
