    "How dare you liking things I don't like?!"

    (P.S.: I'm not even into rifles, I've never shot a gun in my life, but holier-than-thou attitude some have is absolutely mind boggling to me)

    I didn't know that rifles were this cheap.

    That's really an incredible price...congrats.

    Thank you.
    There is a brand new one here (In India) for about $425 with M nib. But I'm cheap, so I'll take the sub-$300 one.
    I reckon you could almost double your money if you bought a Pelikan M800 Tortoise Brown for $425 and sold it here.

    Heck, you could probably sell the sub-$300 for about $600 and keep the brand new pen.

    I suspect, though I may be wrong, that Ptero was joking; but yeah, there is a lot of that kind of judgmentalism about when guns get mentioned... a pen would be an inefficient and inhumane tool for controlling pests and putting food in the freezer.

    Of course, I know how much these pens can go for.
    Can easily sell the brand new one for $900 and the sub-$300 for $500-600. I let one of my friend pick up the $425 one. I'd rather let someone who really wants it to get it than make money off it.
    I'd be more than happy to let others know if I find any more locally at reasonable prices.
