    It never hurts to ask for a discount. I don't think my wife has paid retail for anything in 10 years. More money for me to spend on pellets and beer.

    It was the way he did it and when? You want to ask for a discount then ask, but don't make it look like your doing me a favor by buying them. And ask prior to me loading them on your truck, not after so you think you got me by the shorthairs.(by the way OMV that's a pretty sweet deal that you load them also)

    I understand that 100%. I am just saying it never hurts to try, and yes, there is a right way and a wrong way.

    What an idiot! The customer I mean. There is a way to ask for a discount and that way was insulting, IMO .

    Wow... You are much calmer than I.

    I would have prob flipped immediately! "Your gonna give me $480 or say hello.to my . 40 cal".

    I envisioned pretty bad things. Well played.

    That dude prob called you a D-bag the whole ride home. :)

    I have one of those little .380 sweethearts too but the darn thing hurts my finger every time I shoot it! Two handed hold and all. Can't figure it out. My .40 is much better. Makes a bigger hole on the back side, too!!! :p

    I was selling a car on CraigsList and two guys showed up to look at it and wanted to take it for a drive. One guy went to get in the back with me in the front and I said 'No, I'll sit in the back' and let him see the .40 cal on my hip. They were very polite after that. :)

    very cool story, but what would you have done if he said he didnt want the third ton just wanted the two so no need to rearrange the pallets?

    good job.. I would not have been that quick/stealthy

    I must be to nice or honest last pellets I bought the dealer called me back a week later as he had lost my check. I said no problem and dropped off a new one. I usually have to chase after him at the loading area to give him a check to.

    been in retail a long time, and still see new things each day. One thing Ive learned though, is get paid for AHEAD of time, before you go to the trouble of loading, and then maybe have to UNLOAD. yup.....paid for AHEAD of time.......works for me......and I dont care what kinda hardware is on your hip!
