Sold some ammo and was paid by check. I didn't look at the return address and didn't clarify the shipping addy, I just sent it to the address on the check. UPS center is an hour drive.

A few days later I get a message. Tracking says it was delivered to Wisconsin, I'm in Indiana. I said uh oh, that was the address on the check. He says, I moved and that's my old address.

He contacted his realtor to check on it. The realtor says current inhabitants refused the package and sent it back. Tracking shows it's been received at the ups center in a couple days. I drive there and they say no package, you better make an insurance claim.

I offered the buyer a refund or replacement. He wanted the ammo, so I made another trip and shipped to the right address. In a few months I got the insurance, which was a hassle, and it at least covered some of my loss.

Moral is...always confirm the shipping address!

But 10 or so years ago on the 24HCF classifieds, I was falsely accused of screwing someone out of a fuggin' $60 10-22 barrel, if I recall correctly. Everyone piled on and I was public enemy #1. For a piece of chit 10-22 barrel that was SHIPPED and RECEIVED.

Of course, it was all false. And now I only deal with people FACE TO FACE. I stopped posting chit for sale here long ago, because face to face is inconvenient for most, which I get. But my gun range has a classified webpage and a LOT of deals go on there, and all locally, usually over beers.

So.......... yea, fugk 24hcf classifieds. I'd rather shake a hand.
Hope you reported your earnings to The IRS!!!

I found out that the free classifieds aren't free if you are trying to sell a few Frankenstud Sling Keepers now and then.

The boss needs paid.....

And you're probably making less than some have made selling miscellaneous items or firearms.

So much for "Free" classifieds.

At least there are quite a few who know what they are and where to go if they want one. Time to fly under the radar now.

It’s $1,500 to sell commercially over on Snipers Hide. I contacted Rick when I was selling AR500. He was way cool.

Place an ad in the classified section here on the 'Fire, be prepared to meet the sick, the lame and the lazy stoonods that inhabit this site. No matter how thoroughly described your item there are always stupid questions and lowball offers.

I am simply uncomfortable doing forum deals or any deal that is not face to face. I am nervous as a buyer because I will not react well to getting scammed. I am nervous as a seller because I don't react well to getting scammed and my integrity is on the line. I think I have done 4 transactions through this site. When I have sold, I have told the buyer that I'd ship the item to them, they could inspect it and if it met their approval they could send a check. When I have bought I have sent a check told them to let it clear and then ship. No issues whatsoever. I did ensure that I was dealing with longstanding member who don't appear to be here just to do business deals.

I need to sell this damn Burris XTR 3 that I paid a grand for. I have no use for it, but online transactions stress me out.

Did a deal here a while back on a rifle scope with a guy. When I received the scope in the mail I sent him this pic. And a WTF happened. He immediately tried calling me to ask what had happened and I said oh this was after I took the scope out of the box. We both had a good laugh about and welcomed each at our campfire. I think it made both of our days LOL

When I was selling my wife paracord rifle slings a few years back some fella accused me of stealing 550 cord from the Army supply room so my wife could make these slings LOL. My wife was making an assortment of colors and to this day the only color I ever seen in a army supply room is green and 99% of the time its rolled up in a big ball of ph uck.
