      Same. "Side hustles" are usually just "I charge more for something than I really should" or "I just buy shit and scalp it online/locally to drive up the price". What a "side hustle" really should be is finding something you can make and either selling it online or at local craft/outdoor/whatever shows. You know, something that actually requires effort and isn't just a way to frick people out of something they could otherwise get locally.

      The worst is people treating side hustle worth jobs as a full time career then acting salty that they are struggling. They’ll take hustles like selling knickknacks and candy or doing ride share/food delivery and do it full time, then get upset they make piss money and have no real benefits. Also takes business away from people that really are just doing it for a few extra bucks.

    Literally every single online transaction now.

    There are many, many people that think sitting at home hitting refresh on craigslist is a real job. They look for anything selling for a decent price, buy it, do absolutely nothing to improve or upgrade the product, and relist it for more like a week later. Every used website is completely fricking full of these reseller parasites. I went through this exact same thing when I was trying to buy a motorcycle, and again when I went to sell it. Anything that was a fair deal was immediately bought up.

    Know what you should do? List another gun for a low price, wait for these israelites to call you, tell them to meet you in some way out of the way place, then just don't show up.

    >oh no I got banned on offerup

    Who cares? Some reseller got mad when my wife sold to someone else and got her banned for no reason. The whole site is cancer. Selling used shit over the internet is dead.

        I used to know a guy like that. He came from a well-off family and always fancied himself as a
        money-making genius because he would day trade and "owned a business" that was selling cheap clothing printed with a logo he designed. I gave him credit for the entrepreneurial attitude, but the last time I saw him, his new endeavor was flipping houses. Ignoring any other moral debate about that, this was in a fairly rural area, so if he actually did start trying his plan, he would just end up pricing people out of town because there's a reason rural housing is cheap. But to this guy, it was all about the dollar signs.

          Truly spoken like someone who desperately wants to give boomers a blowjob but can’t find any so they settle for accepting a 200$+ markup on used guns in order to support the lifestyles of several withered old men who couldn’t have been bothered to properly plan for retirement and so now they siphon whatever money they can out of the system and refuse to feel guilty about it because they’re the main charector and it’s society’s fault they’re struggling.

          Dude go suck start a police trade in shotgun that you probably paid the MSRP price for.

        It's difficult for things to have value if they can't be sold. Resellers are a part of the service economy, same as plumbers or carpenters. The only time they're having a negative effect is when they exploit poorly designed systems like Ebay snipers or people who proxy bid up online auctions or use automated servers to buy up concert tickets and then scalp them

              No they don’t, they buy desirable products from retailers then try to sell them off to people busy with actual jobs who couldn’t initially buy said product because of whatever circumstances. It’s actually laughable you compared them to plumbers and carpenters, since the only service they provide is fricking over the average consumer. Saw it first hand during COVID when I was working the gun counter at a big box sporting goods store. This guy and his son would come in and buy at least five Glocks, FNs, etc., and as much ammo as they could once every week or two. Naturally we reported them to the ATF and eventually found out their friend had an FFL and they were using his booth at gun shows to flip them for double the money. $900 Glocks, 9mm at $1/rd when he bought it from us at less than a fifth of that, 5.56 even more. Frick scammers/resellers/flippers.

                Resellers are not the same as scalpers

                >Scalper
                Buys up new product from retailer/manufacturer to create artifical scarcity
                Example: People who buy up concert tickets in the first 10 seconds to scalp them online. Their buying the new concert tickets took away a concert ticket from someone else

                >Reseller
                Buys up collectible items that are mislabeled/misclassified and then brings them to the broader market
                Example: Dealer buying up antique silverware from an estate sale to bring it to the collector's market instead of letting it get melted down for scrap

                I don't really have an issue with this. I don't want to go to estate sales, and I'm paying for the convenience of just getting the thing.

    I have sold many guns over the years; if I had never sold anything I’d be in the three digit range by now but as it stands I’m at around two dozen. I’ll buy stuff, have fun with it and/or try it out to see if I like it, and if I don’t feel the desire to keep it I’ll sell it for exactly what I have into it plus shipping. If the market has gone up and they’re worth more I’ll join forums related to that type of gun and wait to find someone wanting one and give them the price of what I have in the gun and usually that means they’re just getting a good deal on something they’re actually looking for rather than just being some homosexual vulture who just swoops on every good deal with the sole intention of flipping it once it arrives. Those people are subhuman. Passing deals on to people who genuinely want what you’re selling is a good feeling, especially when they’re young on a limited budget in today’s gun market.

    I hate flippers so goddamn much it’s unreal. I can’t tell you how many times I’d see a good deal on something that is cool but that I have no interest in wanting to have, think “that’s a good deal on a cool gun, someone is going to love that” just for some queer scalper to swoop in, snatch it up, and relist the exact same gun in a couple of weeks for a profit and sometimes even using the original seller’s pictures. Frick those guys.

    I only buy from second hand from Gunsdotcom. Prices are whatever but you never get raped and their assessments are pretty much spot on. A gun in "excellent" condition is normally near spotless and is normally ~200 bucks less than a new one. It just werks.

    In the same vein I don't understand people who buy used guns, unless they're collectible or after a specific model that's hard to come buy. It's the same problem with most things at pawn shop. You're trying to get something used for cheap, but the price is usually close enough to new to wait and save a little extra than to buy something that you don't know is used/abused/stolen. I'd rather buy a $500 gun fresh in the box than a $400 gun with (???) rounds through it and bubba'd internals that may have only ever just been cleaned right before it was sold

      This guy gets it. The only used guns I buy/own are guns that are not longer in current production. They don't make yugo sks anymore so I bought used. On the flip side, a p226 is made basically every day. No point in buying used for that.
