So, A few months ago my neighbor is having a yard sale and I ask him "Got any guns you want to get rid of?"
He says "nah, I got a Marlin 39 and a Winchester 94 but they aint fer sale."
I say "O.K. and if you ever want to sell 'em I'd like to take a look".
He said O.K. "if I ever cant pay the Dr. Bills I'll holler at ya"

Fast forward to yesterday
I get home from work and see that the neighbors are having another yard sale, so I walk over to say hi and look around a bit. I ask if he has any guns for sale. GET THIS. He says "I sold 'em both this mornin"
I say "How'd did you do on 'em?"
He pokes his chest out and says " I got $75.00 a peice for 'em". I was speachless.

IDIOT!

Almost afraid to ask, but did you reply when he told you how much he sold them for?
I told him that he left at least 250.00 on the table. I would have bought the things at a fair price and held them, if he wanted them back in a year i'd of taken my money back for them. but noooo, some lady from God knows where comes by and gets the deal of a lifetime on two nice rifles.

I'm still kinda upset about this one.

IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bubs,

I am trying to piece this together. Are you telling us that those two guns were only worth 400.00, the 150.00 he sold and 250.00? Not seeing the condition, aren't they worth at least about 400.00 a piece?
I'm saying that he could've walked into any pawn shop out there and got 200.00 a peice for the guns without haggling at all. I am sure a pawn shop would've asked 400.00 each.
