It can work to your advantage. I went a few weeks ago with the Taurus 94 I bought at Acadamy's Black ffriday sale for $349 IIRC. I did have 2 extra mags I had picked up for it. Couldn't take 3 steps without someone making me an offer on it. Finally had no choice but to accept the $550 one fella offered me. A few tables over I found a Dan Wesson 357, 8 inch barrel in perfect condition that I walked away with for $300 becasue the guy said no one is looking at anything without a hi cap mag attached.
