    Ive dont that before. They certainly dont like it any, but if they arent willing to up the ante then.. well..

    The shop would have certainly been glad to sell that one for 450 for sure.

    I seen a gun shop offer a guy who was having money issues something crazy like 350 for a Winchester model 71 I think it was. The guy said no a guy at work would give him 500 for it and he left. The man behind the counter then said to another employee I screwed up that gun was worth about 2600. I finished my business and never went back. If I wasnt in the middle of paper work at the moment I would have ran the guy down and bought his rifle. My luck being bad like it is he was gone when I went outside.

    Dont you wish you could just sit outside of a pawn shop or gun shop and buyem all day like that. I believe alot of shops are honest and I do realize they have hundreds of guns which is money just sitting and have tons of overhead light bills pay role insurance.... But Im sure they could have offered him even 800 and still had a fat pay day.

    You do realize that MSNBC hates it that you exploited a legal "loophole" and bought a "sniper rifle".

    Seriously though, nice purchase.

    Sometimes, you just have to help a guy out.

    Great score. Way back when, I used to stand around at different pawn shops close to Fort Bragg and buy stuff from under their noses. That really seems to peeve them a little!!:D:D I have been asked to leave some of the establishments.:confused:

    Nice Rifle and sweet deal!
    Ive been know to stop by pawn shops and look at things that I'm really not interested in. Got me a good Guitar that way and didnt think twice about it.

    Nice grab. Ive often wanted to offer more to people while in pawn shops, but having seen a shop operator pull his. 45 on a guy for doing it, I have resisted the urge. And, have never returned to that shop.
