Cardboard 'Most Interesting Man' fails as carpool-lane ruse

A motorcycle trooper parked along Interstate 5 near Tacoma on Monday afternoon spotted a driver and a rather unusual "passenger" pass by him in the carpool lane. When the trooper stopped the car, he discovered the "passenger" was a cardboard cutout of the actor who portrays "The Most Interesting Man in the World" in Dos Equis beer ads.

7 surprising things the government spends more money on than space exploration

1) The F-35 fighter will cost more than sending humans to Mars

In all honesty I would definitely buy a used G17 or 19 for the right price. New? Maybe. Used for 20% more than retail: noway.

It's just insane to me that people get away with that garbage.

Now, if you post up one that has <500 rounds through it, is clean and comes with a couple extra mags and a holster. I would probably pay close to retail for the extra goodies. I'm all for customization to what you like or not but I'm not paying extra cause you thought the digi camo was a sweet lookin' piece and totally paid 200 for it so you should too. nuh uh... not this idiot.

I'm not disagreeing with  you.  People that want too much for their crap is stupid.  The other side of the coin though is that you never know what they really sold it for, unless they sold it on this forum...which rarely happens.  Lots of transactions happen in the privacy of PM's.  Good people sometimes want too much for their stuff too...I remember a good friend of mine trying to sell a 92 Inox compact for standard retail...I've also over priced stuff too(that didn't sell at that price).  I'm thinking you should just say what you're really thinking without over qualifying.  You hate retard fanboys and their dumbass antics.  Those same guys irritate the crap out of us at the not how much they want for their guns.  It's actually just them as people.  LMAO

Well, I have notice some buyers wilL NEVER pay what you are asking for. They EXPECT to haggle and have you come down, because they think you priced your item to do that. I've actually had one or two people tell me this when I refused to come down, and tell me then I should have priced it $20-$40 higher then (originally) - so I COULD come down in a deal.  :thinker:

Texas 'Cop Watcher' bill under fire from legal experts, law enforcement groups

A Texas lawmaker's proposal to establish a 25-foot "buffer zone" around police engaged in keeping the peace is drawing fire from both legal experts and law enforcement groups, but for different reasons.

Glock is what it is.  It's no more magic than John Browning's magic pistol.  They just happen to be inexpensive, so you get the spectrum of people who buy them.  People will always try to get more for their stuff than its worth.  No one marks their online sales at what they actually want, because they know that by nature it probably won't get sold unless someone gets a "discount".  Idiots are everywhere, and if they want to much for their crap just don't buy it.  They'll figure it out.  I'm the king of customizing my guns until there is no way I'll get my money back...and then selling them.  Just the price I pay to figure out what I like and what I don't.

Well, whenever I sell something and put WHY I am selling it - and that I want NO trades... If I post it on Texas Gun Trader, ALL I ever get from there are trade offers... People expect their stuff is worth these inflated prices, like what was just mentioned above on this thread.

Asking price $650-750."

I'm sorry but if I can walk down to the local Academy and buy a brand new one and walk out the door under 550

/end rant

Some people buy their firearms at Gander Mountain/Bass Pro/Dicks  so that just might be their used price....  :bangheadonwall:

I was at Bass Pro in Katy on Sat - damn near everything $100-$150 too much on handguns

Like the unemployment numbers, I guess you can't believe any govt stats now...

FBI figures tweaked to show phony increase in mass shootings, report says

Crime stats published by the FBI and relied upon by the media distort the gun violence and leave the public with the impression "mass shooting" incidents are a much bigger threat than they really are, according to a criminologist and Second Amendment scholar.

The bureau's annual reports tabulating and classifying a wide range of crime throughout the nation have been historically free of politics, but John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, said the latest statistics contain numbers that are misleading at best and deliberately fudged at worst. Lott believes the numbers may have been presented to overstate for political purposes the true risk of being a victim of random gun crimes.

General Gun Discussion / Favorite gun you bought in the last year
« on: March 23, 2015, 10:26:27 AM »
Everyone has their favorite gun in their collection... But, what's your favorite from the past year that you have purchased?

I've owned one in 9mm before - these are like Walther P99 A/S models. Walther made the frame for S&W, and S&W made the upper. Good gun!

I wish I knew half the stuff you did.
In the short time I've been a part of this forum Ron has given me solid advice many times. I'm over 60, been around firearms since I was 8 yrs old, and doubt I know 25% of what Ron knows.

Ron is super human, and is rumored to be from another planet where gunsmithing is a required education by the time they are 3 years old. Shhh... Don't tell anyone else.  :thumbsup1:

A 1911 fiend owning a Glock  :facepalm:

I know, I know. However, Glocks are the only guns my wife will shoot.  :th_nuts:

So there will always be a few around here. Besides that one fell into "Run what you Brung" when I wanted to go from USPSA Single Stack to Production Class, its since morphed into a Limited Minor gun and have gotten used to it  :bangheadonwall:  Course it does have a 2# smooth trigger.

What brand of magwell do you have on it?
