I'm blunt with everything I sell... and I do it for a living. I have fun with the lowballers though:
A product that is $199
Them: "I'll give you $150"
Me: "Great, I'll take $250"
Them: "????????"
Me: "I want more, you want less, let's just settle for the price on the tag and get on with it.

Me: "Do you try to negotiate for your groceries at Wal-Mart?"

I don't see the need for putting up with such foolishness unless you're really in a pinch and need the money. Otherwise, I'd make it perfectly clear that I didn't NEED to buy something as expensive as a Kimber to start with and I certainly don't NEED to sell it.

I make my living buying and selling and haggling is all part of the game. I price my stuff about 30%-40% above what I need to get - I'm expecting to get beat up on the price. I let them beat me up and they think they're getting a deal, I get the profit I was looking for anyway.

I like it when a perspective buyer says; "Can get that cheaper online or at store "x". I then tell them "That's a great deal! You better buy it before some one else does!"
Death twitches my ear. "Live," he says, "I am coming."

Enjoy yourself. It's later than you think.
