...they don't stop shopping because of "downturn" fears.
This is why I used the strategy of putting, instead of a price tag, a sign next to my custom Delta Elite that said "If you have to ask..." at the gun show yesterday. I had a lot of fun fielding questions for the hour or two until it sold.
"...then you don't know what you're looking at."
"...then you're not the target market."
"...then you don't know what it's worth."
"...then you can't afford it."
