I would have just told him everything you planned on purchasing and mentioned that seeing as he was still there, I could be down in X number of minutes, cash in hand, would he mind waiting? It sounds like he would have still been there packing for the show, and might have been willing to unlock the door for you if you were committed to a purchase.
I can understand his reluctance, most people that call or even show up to stores have no intention of buying something. A lot of people just want to browse or "kick the tires", so to speak. Plus, a $950 gun only has so much profit in it. Mentioning the red dot, extra mags and ammo would have told him that he would be making more than the limited profit on a single gun and he might have been willing to work with you. My dad always used to say "Money talks, BS walks."

I never bought a gun from the guy and never will. Some other dealers opened up around town and I never went back. I'd suggest the same for the OP in his case. Find someone who appreciates your business. Life's too short to deal with people who don't value you as a person or as a patron.
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.
