You already ordered it, and it's supposed to be there on monday? Backing out now is just plan wrong IMO. If anything I'd say you owe him a 'restocking' fee.
I want to do what's right about it, $40 isn't enough to really worry about it ... I was just second guessing myself.You already ordered it, and it's supposed to be there on monday? Backing out now is just plan wrong IMO. If anything I'd say you owe him a 'restocking' fee.
sounds reasonable nothing wrong w/ a "price match" I guessTell the gunshop you found it cheaper somewhere else...and kindly ask to see if he will match it. Whether he does or does not, you have already ordered the gun. I would still go with the ordered gun and wouldn't worry about the $40.00 difference. It is just professional to act that way.
Look at it this way, how would you feel if the gunshop ordered a gun for you, then sold it to a Joe Smith because he offered 20 bucks more? You probably would be upset. I would say the gunshop owner would be upset if you backed out after having him order it for you. It never hurts to ask if he will price match though!
makes it worth the extra hour it takes to drive there
ty, bro-thaSounds like a good place to continue shopping, since he will price match for you. In future though, I'd look around at what other places are selling things for.
Good for you, bro!
The OP said up front that the gun store owner was NOT his friend.Sounds like a cool friend and a cool shop.
I would imagine he means he is comfortable dealing with the guy, but they are not quite buddies.I'm thinking I should call the first guy ( we're kinda friends in that we always have good conversations when I'm in there) and ask him to match this other price.
agreedThat's definitely cool they price matched. Same happened to me, but what's even better is that Guy Calla me up whenever something nice comes in or a big shipment. Definitely keep a good relationship with the dealer, it has some perks.
The OPs exact words were that they are "kinda friends" so they are more than just a NOTJacks1911 said:The OP said up front that the gun store owner was NOT his friend.
