I've had stuff on my gun show tables at a bargin price because I had no need for it  I've had them sit for several shows with no intrest . Bump the price up a hundred or two - sonic booms as it flies off the table . Makes no sense , but it's happened several times .

Happens all the time.  The bargain-basement prices are interpreted as "junk;" raise the price a bit and it becomes "good used stuff."  Same thing happened with some brand of Scotch whiskey, Cutty Sark IIRC.  However gun show stuff is a tad different from asking $35K for a BAR clone, especially after the market for it had already been set at $27K.  Remember that genuine Marlin-Rockwell with the plugged barrel that sold recently at Cowan's for $29.5K out the door?  This guy's $35K starting price is beyond delusional.  The $40K BIN price qualifies as "extremely aspirational."
