Same here with guitars, but I'd never think to try to sell one priced higher for all the shit I've swapped out. I get that it means taking a hit on resale value, but some people think it means the opposite.

My favorite is when they end it with “no low ball offers, I know what I got!”

I am also amazed by the "modification" crowd and what they expect from their "creations" when they try and sell them.

It can be very subjective. I've seen posts here showing off some pretty amazing work on all sorts of guns that I would be proud to own and even pay extra when (if) purchasing. You all know the story though, for every skilled and patient person who lovingly and carefully modifies items there are hundreds who fling crap or melt plastic with a soldering iron and think that they ADDED value.

Jeep wranglers can be the same way. "Look! I bolted on $5,000 worth of cheap amazon jeep parts! My Jeep is now worth $7,500 more!"

Here's how I handle those sellers. I don't buy their stuff.

Epic rant. I particularly liked the "dandelion-harvester" reference. Nice touch.

Otherwise, these kind of ads don't raise my blood pressure at all. I wouldn't buy it, you wouldn't buy it , hell no one here would. But if the seller can find someone out there in the intraverse who will, fine with me.

As P.T. Barnum said......

Guys. I’m not mad about these ads. My blood pressure wasn’t up. I don’t particularly care what people choose to charge for their stuff. It seemed like a fun opportunity to go Lewis Black on a particular subset of the gun community that I find laughable. Laugh with me. Cool?

This kind of reminds me of people who are trying to sell their POS car that has been upgraded with every bolt on accessory from the J.C. Whitney catalog, complete with a list of items installed and the advertised HP gain.

Based on the accessories, the car is putting out about eleventy billion HP and getting 100 MPG and can run on bovine urine.

Ok, the bovine urine is an exaggeration. Smile

I have no problem with people customizing their own gun, as some of them look really cool but do understand you will never get the money you have invested back. I had a custom Glock years ago and had it for quite a while but being it was a Glock 34, there was not much it would be used for in my home. I sold it and took a loss but it wasn't overly done. What kills me is when people spray paint a firearm and say it is custom and want more for it, when it is more so destroyed, to me. Recently on a local forum, someone had a Wilson Combat EDC X9 and it was spray painted in a bad camo colored motif and wanted top dollar for it. I don't understand the logic sometimes.
