BE CAREFUL OF NEW FORUM MEMBERS WHO JOIN JUST TO OFFER SOMETHING FOR SALE. :idea: :idea:

WHILE MANY MAY BE LEGITIMATE, MANY ARE ON FORUMS JUST TO SCAM.

NEVER BUY A GUN ON LINE OTHER THAN THROUGH A SENDING BRICK AND MORTAR ESTABLISHED GUN STORE THAT HAS A VERIFIABLE TELEPHONE NUMBER IN THE YELLOW PAGES. MAKE SURE THEY HAVE THE GUN IN THEIR POSSESSION AND GET DETAILED PHOTOS.

Yes :oops: My advice comes from experience. Remember that our forum is a talk and information forum for serious shooters, not for those who won't sell at auctions or sites like GunsAmerica...legitimate avenues for this sort of thing.

The legitimate selling sites have some recourse for deals gone bad and ways of prosecuting the absolute crooks.

Jay has been kind enough to let the regular members here and elswhere communicate and conduct occasional sales. Just be double careful about how the sale is conducted.

We are NOT here for opportunistic people to use simply as a sales site. For the most part, anyone with a legitimate sales offer would use a legitimate avenue with safeguards for all concerned.

The commercial aspect of this and Jay's other sites are for his benefit, only, IMHO!! It irks the h-e-l-l out of me to have someone join just to peddle something for no charge to the peddler. :twisted:

These are my own opinions, and Jay has the last say, as always.

Guys I wish we could certify each of the sellers on the Classifieds, but we might run a huge legal risk. We've posted some tips, that might help in future transactions, in a sticky at the top of this forum. I would suggest that you use a credit card or better yet an escrow service. The escrow service holds your/their money until both parties are satisfied with the transaction.
Regards,
Jay
