I hope you don't eat at any restaurant because their mark-up is 100% or more. I also hope you don't plan on buying a diamond... ever. They're dime a dozen and yet jewelry stores charge so much for them.
Again, if the buyer is willing to spend what the seller is asking for the product then all is good. It's called supply and demand. And gouging is only unacceptable when it comes to essential items. A gun, while a tool for self-defense, is not an essential item.
