Why is it on the seller to come up with a price.......??? Why can't we have Buyers state what they want and roughly what they will pay. One of the reasons I drove 300 plus miles to the Gun Show last weekend was to see what stuff is really selling for.
Example a week ago I wanted a Noveske KX3 flash suppressor they are out of stock....BUT list for $125.00 + shipping. Why can't we have a thread or a sub-section of the for sale forum where I could have stated, "Wanted.....Noveske KX3 with 1/2"-28 thread willing to pay $ 150.00 to $175.00 cash".
At the show I watched three bulk packs of 325 rounds sell for $35.00 $35.00 and the last one $40.00 so now I know roughly what the market is for .22 LR. I checked four retailers in Anch. on the way home and none had any .22 LR.
I have many thousands of rounds of ammo to sell and maybe twenty firearms to sell. I just don't understand why members can't say, "I am a buyer .45 acp 235 gr. fmj and I will pay $ **.00 per hundred rounds of factory ammo". Or someone says, I am looking for a 5" Colt 1911 and willing to pay $ ***.00 for a stainless model.
It just seems like there are a lot of members wanting to buy reloading stuff. Why can't we have a place where someone can say, I am looking for a Trapper Nelson pack to hang on the wall, I hope to pay about $ 95.00 for a good one.
Why must the load be on the seller. People give me crap because I over price stuff........If I see something I want I start a private conversation and try to arrive at a price that I can live with. Maybe buyers don't REALLY want to buy......SO What are you looking to buy......someone may not have what you want, but they might have a friend with 40 sets RCBS Dies.
There just has to be a way to help get buyers and sellers together.
