saw this on gunbroker at more than double MSRP. Aren’t their laws against price gouging.....

Very sad individual, funny thing is it won’t sell so why waste your time?

    Almost everything that they have listed is close to double MSRP.

    There are two kinds of idiots on online auction sites: Idiot buyers and idiot sellers. They feed off of each other. Ignore them.

    Had a customer one time, it was the first day of the iphone 7 sale. Guy in line had someone offer him the retail price of the iphone for his spot in line up front to get one. Yeah, I can wait a day or two for $700.

    I disagree. If I have ten $13 magazines and someone is willing to give me $400 for them?

    I am taking that any day and every day. God made them stoopid. Not I

    Yep.  I have a bunch of stuff I don’t really need anymore.  If things go wonky in a few more years I plan on making a haul.  If someone wants to pay me $75 or more for a brick of 22 that is on them, not me.  I have some Bulgarian AK mags I got bulk for $3.95 a pop. No longer have the AKs.  If someone wants to pay me 20,40, 60 bucks, I will not say no.  I call that smart.  The consumer becomes the idiot for paying the inflated prices in a panic rather stocking up when they were cheap.

    I can see like the others on there did starting bids close to MSRP and letting the idiots fight it out on a bidding war but these folks are just plain gouging.

    I see it ended with no bids, looks like I was wrong

    I hope he paid too much for it expecting to make money.

    Sellers of everything will try to cash in on a product where they think demand exceeds supply. Look at what car dealers do when a new hot model hits the floor - they slap on a "market adjustment" to the Maroney sticker. 

    Just say "no."
