    $50 less than new at a gun store, $100? Is an extra mag or holster enough to pay full retail for a used gun?

    I see "good deal" crap commented all the time for $50 less than what you could buy the gun for new. The new gun probably doesn't have your boogers on it either.

    Happy Wednesday mostly serious rant!

    That's where i'm at on ODT. Seems almost everyone on here wants top dollar for their brass and powder. I go to Ga. Arms buy both for less ,no tax to vets and don't have to play games with people that won't travel a mile to help you out.Just saying

    Mostly because these “used” guns are really upgraded, with stippelling. Maybe even the trigger spring removed to get a lighter trigger pull. In rare cases, they can’t get the gun to group, because the scope seems to be installed backwards..

    I might be interested at $50 less than retail -- seems like many here want more than retail --
