When people are broke they pawn an item. It is a conditional loan with collateral. Repay the loan within the allotted time plus interest and the item is retrieved. But, if the loan isn't repayed within the allotted time, the item belongs to the pawn broker who then attempts to sell it at a much higher price. Pawn shops don't sell goods on consignment. An item cannot be sold until the allotted time is up. The Colorado is well made and if you were interested in buying, $400 is a fair price. I'd grab the HHH just to have it at that price.
