I was at a "Tactical Store" in a near-by town (w/ an army base), and perused through their SF's. E2DL $189. MSRP, no prob. E1B, $110. Copy Tango. I look at the G2-Bk (incan model)...$104.95 . O.K., for sure, this is mis-marked. Not that I was going to buy it...I had bought three of the exact same models for $25 a piece at the local exchange. I mention it to them as a good will gesture, thinking, "hey, you could probably sell these a bit more, if they were more reasonably priced"...I figured it was mis-marked. What I actually said was, as I was buying some other stuff, "I think your G2's are mis-marked". He goes, grab's one, and I explain to him that SF's retail was $32/$45 for the longest time. I say, "You'd probably sell a lot more if they were properly priced". Another sales rep snips back "Oh, we sell plenty of those". I think to myself "Not at that price". But, the polite sales rep looks it up in the system, and states "That's what our manager has them list at". So, I left them to their own devices.
G2-BK Incan for $104??? Or an E1B for $110??? You make the call. The guys remarks wouldn't have bothered me as much, if the store wasn't more than 200 yards from one of the largest Amry installations in the country (Ft. Jackson), where the army guys can get G2-BK's for $25-$40.
Am I right in thinking that the sales rep's A) Don't know the products, or B) Didn't give two hoots that it was marked extremely high?
Any body else ever see this happen? A pack of gum for $10? Let's hear your stories!
