Dopey guy renting off of us, basically a Klingon, mom's new "grandson" had 2 SHOTGUNS (one was a mossberg 12g, other unknown) these were still at the pawn, but paid off. So this [email protected] trades them BOTH even up for a CF380, quite used, slick action, but nowhere near new.

I'm thinking he got hosed royally...

I see too many payday loan stores. These places are charging over 250% in annual interest rate. And many pay day loan places have much higher annual interest rates over 250%. There are too many suckers out there being hosed out of their money.

He got hosed, but that's his fault for not knowing the value of things. Not all pawn shops are bad. I've gotten some good deals. I've also overpaid for some things, but my #1 pawn shop lets me do long layaways with low down so there have been several things I was able to buy that I wouldn't have been able to afford otherwise. I don't pawn things or sell things there though, that's where you get screwed.

I got some good deals there too, but it's a combination of greedy seller and stupid buyer.

In a regular market, one shotty > used CF380.
Even now I'd say they are equal at best, in that scenario. At least it's a gray frame

Seriously tho, so much didn't work here and works elsewhere and I'm out so much, it's hard to keep track. I see that it looks like most things are working in the posts themselves, where it did not work before.

So...
No emoji in titles,

If you had been here, you would know the evil Overlords sold us a bill of goods on the new software. Kirk lost any and all control of the articles, I lost 90% control of the back end, and we lost the ability to gift/award memberships...

So who can gift and award memberships now? You have to ask someone else to do that presently I am guessing.

I've been going down the lists of topics and I see that old accounts pop in and relist old questions and or other weirdness

Maybe they will wise up and free this up, I doubt that purging all the old faithful posters and starting over will be fruitful. This could go the way of the other old HP forums... sadly

Nobody. All pay only. That's why we're telling people to write an article and get it for free.

Well the algorithm finds popular old posts and lists them as hot topics to try and increase traffic.

Sounds like that pawn shop rocks. They’ll probably sell those old shotguns for $120-$150 each, make money, and make some shotgun buyer happy.

Exactly. On another site using the same overlords, I finally realized the “recommended reading” list was basically a list of threads that hadn’t been read or maybe even clicked on in 5 years.:rolleyes:

That's why we've started catching so many necro's lately.

Not exactly, these guys had a used, original Ruger LCP with a price tag of $450 on it
I asked if they had any wiggle room and the guy said "not much"

I didn't price the shottys but I'd imagine they are marked just as badly. But perhaps the shotgun market is not as stupid as handguns right now, amd priced a bit better??

They had an old Tec9 for $1200 or 1295 only one magazine with it. Pretty stiff but I've never even seen one of those since my ex-bil had one in the mid 80's

But they promised they'd still respect us in the morning.
