I do believe this became more common with the ammo situation.
I have a few more than five that have not yet been fired and a couple of them may never be fired before they are handed down to my children. The ammo situation is part of the reason and my local gun ranges are part of the reason but that still leaves two or three that I may never shoot.
I like buying and owning new guns, it's as simple as that. Most of my recent purchases will eventually be shot but if some are not I'm okay with that.
So, If I ever decided to sell some of my guns in the marketplace (which I never will) I could honestly list them as being "never fired".

Someone is not being honest here. I have a dozen revolvers and most of them have chewed a minimum 12 rounds since I bought them. Why did you buy a gun that you actually never fire it?
i believe it. there are many exempt members in the marketplace who buy off roster guns to flip online as a side hustle.

I used to have a farm with a great shooting spot. I don't think a gun was ever home for 10 minutes before it had at least a magazine through it, and sometimes a full box. sometimes I walked 50 feet out the back door and did mag dump just because I felt like it. Then I moved out of there and bought a house in a neighborhood, so impulsive range time doesn't happen anymore. I think 6 of the last dozen guns I've purchased are unfired by me. It happens.

I can only imagine what it would be like to shoot on my own property. In a situation like that all of my new guns would be tested right away even with the ammo problem that we currently have.

Example of idiocy.

Before covid: $500

During covid: $1000
Also seller: I can't go any lower

Present: $750
Seller: it's the lowest it has been.

Prices are trending down. Those $1000 Gen 3 Glocks aren’t selling any more.

As a side note, though: I feel like a lot of the new gun owners in the past 18 months are not selling their “panic” firearms. They are keeping them.

FIFY.

If cats weren't willing to buy them for that much, nobody could sell them for that much.

Got to love when someone has guns listed at $850 a piece and I offered on both both and then the price is suddenly changed to $975 a piece.

Yeah, those Glocks are the ones with custom slide/machining for an RD and frame stippling/ trigger guard undercut work, etc.
The sellers are hoping to recoup some of their expenses.

Back around February - March 2020 when nobody had any guns it wasn't uncommon to see regular G17s or G34s selling for around $1,000.00 or more.

People were selling them for those prices because people were willing to pay those prices.

I know the horse is dead, but some people just don't care. I had a coworker that was like that. He'd see something for sale and buy it on the spot, without any thought of how much he could get it somewhere else. In 2010, he bought a Glock 19 for $599, because he saw it a Gander Mountain exactly at the moment that he decided he wanted it. It didn't matter that the little store in town had them $100 less.

True, no argument here.

But if we're talking in current time frame, prices have come down; when I did a quick search on our marketplace with "Glock Gen3",
These unmodified examples came up:
Glock 23 G3 $590 and another for $499
G19 G3 $649
G26 G3 $700
G17 G3 $700 and another for $550
There's some more with similar prices.
Pricing is a little high compared to pre-covid, pre-brandon but IMHO, above prices are reasonable at this time.
And the ones listed for at least $1k have optic cut slide, custom work and aftermarket pieces.

What are new ones going for?

Out here new guns are plentiful, and pretty cheap, especially compared to the prices you noted.

If a new gun is going for $500.00 - $530.00 (about what Gen 3, 4, or 5 Glock 17s are going for here), the used one needs to be less than that, or have significant upgrades that I have a use for (sights, trigger) before I'm going to consider it.

FWIW, clowns out here also seem to think their used guns are somehow worth more than new ones. And they're not selling here either, most get listed and just stay listed.

My location is close to Riflegear, so looking at their inventory, new G19 and G17 G3's are $539.00 and new G34 & G35's are $639. All are in stock at the moment.

Yeah, its absurd that folks in your area are selling used guns as if off-roster. Clowns are everywhere lol!

If there was a modest fee, saying as little as $5, you would see a lot less of these absurd listings here.

Just my five cents (marked up two pennies due to market conditions).

Say what? Are you saying your two cents is worth three cents (under normal market conditions) ? HaHa you must be one of these evil price gougers. Even trying to give your two cents worth when buyers are only asking a penny for your thoughts? Why we ought to pass rules and laws against that.

My reasoning would be to reduce those that think they will just throw up a huge number for a firearm and if someone wants to buy it, fine, but if not, they’ve got nothing invested.

If there’s no ‘sweat in the game’, there’s less perceived value (seller’s viewpoint).
