Whether he was or not is inconsequential. You are only concerned with YOUR price. Whether he paid $1440 for the gun or $1000, it doesn't matter. He determines how much he will pay for a gun and how much he will accept for the gun. You, get to determine how much you'll pay....
Buying a gun isn't a competition to find out who gets gun X for the least amount of money...and someone will ALWAYS get one cheaper.
The idea is to get a gun that you want for a price you want to pay. Good luck!
