The hoarders, like myself, are becoming fewer. I find that a lot of players are financing the new "I want" by clearing out the items that they don't use or can survive without. If that is what they have to do to stay in the sport rather than say "I can't afford airsoft", then I have no problem with it. It is just a sign of the times and everyone is more astute with money.

Not everyone can walk into a shop or come on here a buy a gun straight up.Thats the way things are gone and as se conman said there clearing old stuff out for new stuff.Ye some of it should be left in the parts box but at the end of the day its worth something and thats how they look at it.I myself might have put up one of those threads that annoyed u but for me to update what i have i need to clear what i don't use to do so.I love the sport and if i want to stay at it and up to date somewhat this is what needs to be done.

I must say ive seen a few stupid posts up where they want to swap non airsoft stuff for airsoft gear, tbh if they wanted to get airsoft gear why not sell that non airsoft related item and then purchase airsoft gear, them adds bug me,

Because its called trading....and its just a bit a part of the second hand market here on boards + adverts are selling something for cash.
Don't see the problem, I've a Nintendo DS knocking about never used, all in it's worth about €200 with all the stuff I have.
If I'm wanting to fund let's say a Glock, why would I go through the effort of selling the NDS< getting cash, then hunting a glock, when I can at the same time offer a straight trade?
Considering how poorly people rate their kit (ie completely over price it ) and have such poorly informed and in some cases misdirected views on depreciation value and quality, that is more the concern for me.
These are electrical and mechanical devices, that the minute you plug a battery in and pull the trigger starts depreciating. I can't understand people with say Dboys and JG clones, looking for €130+ for them. At the same time I've had ****ing ludicrous offers for a rifle I have that cost all in about €400 to build, and I'm selling for €220, and people have the audacity to offer pennies or clones in trading.
I don't know if pricing has shifted that dramatically, and maybe I'm living in the past, but I get a pretty hefty LOL when I see people wanting 100+ for second hand clone pistols, when you buy them new for €120, or people wanting €150 for their clone AK's and M4's...: /
