I have no issue with it. Maybe the guy isn't really interested in selling it? Maybe he's only interested in selling it if someone is willing to pay $700 for it?

My friend had 700 acres of prime whitetail land in Missouri. He put it up for sale way over market price. It appraised substantially less than what he was asking for it. He left it on the market for 3 years and refused to budge on the price because he didn't really need or want to sell it. Well guess what? Some multimillionaire looked at it last fall and paid him cash for it so he could have it for hunting season. My friend made a small fortune and bought a smaller place closer to home. There is nothing wrong with someone trying to sell something for a high price.

Competition is a beautiful thing. If the gun is only worth $400 then the only way he's going to sell that gun is if some fool or some wealthy guy pays him for it.

No problem with it either. Got a deer rifle that I love, but if you are a fool and want to give me double for it send me a PM and its yours. FTF only, and pick me up some lunch on your way. Hurry every chance you get.

Churchill: Madam, would you sleep with me for five million pounds?
Socialite: My goodness, Mr. Churchill… Well, I suppose… we would have to discuss terms, of course…
Churchill: Would you sleep with me for five pounds?
Socialite: Mr. Churchill, what kind of woman do you think I am?!
Churchill: Madam, we’ve already established that. Now we are haggling about the price.
