OK, anyone who buys using all the available sites out there has probably gone through this, but it still frustrates me. Here's the setup: You see a rifle/pistol that you really want. The seller puts a price out there, usually a bit high, and also says open to trades. Something like $800. You have a rifle/pistol in good shape worth, say worth $500. Your price is based on research, market value and of course what you have in it. You go out and confirm by searching multiple sites and checking the offerings the same as your weapon and come up with a good market value. Say the majority are offered at $550 so you value yours at $500. You send the seller a good trade offer, your rifle/pistol and $200 cash, for example. You're thinking they may come back and say, "$250 cash and your weapon", which is a good counter offer. Instead the seller responds informing you that your trade offering is worth much less than you think. So they respond with something snarky like this: "I can find that pistol for $350 all day so I'll trade you your pistol and $450". Of course after this all I want to do is respond with something really smart ass but usually refrain, but only if I really want the offering. It takes quite a bit to bite my tongue though. So, how do you guys handle it?
