    Why have I got the strange feeling that every used pistol on Gunbroker worth less then $200 will be suddenly snapped up over the next couple of months?

    Just when you thought you’d never re-sell that Hi-Point pistol you ‘love’ so much.

    I guess the panic buying is finally over.

    • SpudGun, good point.

  • Adam

    yes! I’ve had a contribution to the internet!

    Now I’m off to buy a brand new high point to trade in!

    Come on. Unless you are going to upgrade your 15 year old RG 22 for a new SIG [if SIG would accept an RG to begin wtih], this is simply ridiculous. You can sell any handgun that SIG is likely to grant you the $200 trade-in on [there are restrictions, after all] for at least that much, or more. Nice marketing, but not really a very good deal.

    I wonder what the asterick beside the word Klunkers mean…
