Default My best out the door price.

**this in no way for sale on here. I'm not going to see if in the rules I'm just going to assume no freaking way what's said is just for the suck so don't think of PM'ing me about it. OK-LOL.**

So on a gun forum I have a couple parts for sale IAW my lic and laws.
They make up a good chunk of an AR-15 being the 2 halves of the receiver and a carry handle. I got a good deal and most lower 1/2's from other places are going for $50.
But of lessor brands. Not bad but lessor.

So Last week the panic hit and gun shops have bare walls 4hr waits to get in, I still have this and at still pre panic $. By appt only so if the gov background check system is caught up I can have you in and out in 1/2hr.
Now is not the time you haggle with me. I have a $2k+ sale I'm working on with a military shooting team. $4k of guns inbound sometime and $500 in just cleaning and repairs that was just Thurs and Friday. Plus still being essential at La Dee Dodge.
So this low baller PM's me.
Mind you I have it for $120 + 6% tax, and check that shops charge upwards of $40 for is inc.

"What's my best best price out the door-I'm going to drive over an hour"

OH ok "MY" best price? OK..I can do that!
My response-

Oh you want to haggle OK.. Best out the door for me-
DPMS lower $90
Upper with door and button $60
Carry handle $30.
$180 +tx 10.80 so 190.80
PICS $10.
So $200.80 out the door. But I'll take $200.


He took the hint.

He doesn't seem to grasp that you (the seller) hold all the cards ... well, not until the end, anyway.

This is one the of the reasons why I've been hesitant on selling jewelry, because I don't deal well with people trying to undercut the price. Plus I use expensive beads [the kind that's $7 for a pack of 20], and I want to be paid for the time it takes me to make something that I hadn't already created. So, yes, me charging $20-30 for one necklace is right, if you want to do it yourself go right ahead.

$20-$30 for a decent necklace is dang cheap, anybody who's trying to bargain that down is at best operating on reflex, and at worst someone you don't want as a customer.

I'd be tempted to say something like "I have it listed at $200, but for you, my best price is $240."

And ever time he spluttered, add another $20 to it.

That reminds me, we haven't heard from Jester in a long while. I wonder if he is still in Key West?

Guns and ammo have been flying out the doors out here. Folks were driving from Phoenix to Prescott hoping to be able to buy a gun because all of the Phoenix stores were sold out.

I'm amazed you didn't laugh so hard you needed to pee when Mr Lowball tried to play his game now.

No but my eyes rolled so hard I looked like a slot machine.

Funny thing is I noticed my higher priced items don't get the low balling that lower priced things.
