I still have no idea what the thread topic is. Very confusing Mitch.
It has certainly taken a twist for the bizzare, hasn't it.
Makes sense to me. Basically as the "seller" you want a certain cash price or a higher "value" in a trade situation for your gun. Establishing "value" is subject to some discussion.
I'll try once again ...
Makes sense, but what's the point?
If I have something to trade, I will inflate the value of what I have accordingly.
I would be foolish not to. So why even go there?
If both owners agree that the trade is good, then value is relative and the actual number is immaterial. Fully understand that part and maybe that is the subtle point this whole train wreck is about.
