    I sell guns at Academy Sports and was visiting with a customer last week. I told him I was getting into shotgun reloading and he offered to sell me an old 12ga MEC 200 for $50. He said that he bought a more expensive press for competition and left me his name and number. Is this a good deal?

    If all the parts are there and it is in decent shape it seems the price is reasonable.
    Fast food burger fries and a Coke is $10 now, movie pop corn and a soda is $25.

    If it's all there, I'd run (not walk) for $50

    Never heard of a Mec 200, but for $49 you can get a brand new Lee Load All, with everything you could possibly need for reloading shotgun shells, plus a great warranty.
