The fair members of off topic, please be my moral compass, bumming the owner and bricking windows not an option.

My disabled son has shown an interest in airgun target shooting, he is mobility impaired but can stand ok and I thought maybe a way to get him out of his bedroom so today i bought him an air rifle

this one .22gun.JPGThe bloke selling it had a thick Asian accent and i thought he said the price was £89, so i bought some .22 pellets and he charged me £105 filled out all the forms and gave my i.d and was on my way.

A couple of hours after the bloke knocks on my door saying he made a mistake and it should have been £205, I told him i will return to the shop tomorrow with my card and sort it out.

I thought it was a bit weird so i then googled and found the RRP above on the manufactures website...Now i then think this bloke is trying to have me over.

Do I return the rifle ask for a refund

Tell him to fuck right off he should have checked what he was charging me

do fuck all?

Remember here the bloke sells crossbows Machetes and firearms hence the caveat in the first line...I'm tempted to just ask for a refund and go to a stockist of that gun and get it at rrp

If you think hevis having you over what do you think will happen when you try and return it ?
Further, who sells machetes is that legal.
Edit : it seems it is !

Just give it back for a refund. What is he going to do?

You contact him and say that you were mistaken, and that the contract was completed in accordance with the agreed terms, and that nothing he can say or do can change that now - the terms he offered were wholly his responsibility. The sooner he accepts that lesson, and takes more care in the future, the better.

I see this stuff everywhere these days. People are begging and scamming like it's normal life. It isn't. It's collective madness. We have a duty to stand up to it. Walk away if you get that sense during the negotiation. And once the purchase is made, you don't give in. The law is the law. Deals are deals.

The price charged was totally realistic and reasonable. He has no case.
