On Armslist, a fella here in Colorado Springs had a NIB Colt 1911 he was offering for $800. I offered him $750. He accepted the price, and we made arrangements to meet on Friday (I work 4 x 10 so I can't get to the bank during the week). He specifically said he would hold it until Friday if I committed to buying his gun. This guy e-mails me today and says "Sorry, someone offered me $850 and I had to take it." I didn't even get the chance to match his offer!
Anyway, I'm pretty steamed about it. I think when you make a deal, you need to stick to it. Even then I still would have matched the $850 but I didn't get a chance to.
