You gotta be able to smell the stink of someone who's gonna be trouble to deal with. I was born with that ability.

Before I buy or sell to someone I don't know, I check their posts.

Are they part of the community or just camping in the classifieds and working deals.

Communicate all the way through the sale and make a new buddy, it's not that hard.

Accounts of established members have been hacked by scammers, to appear as if a long time member is selling or buying.

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.

Yeah

I've sent Leighton 4 packages that have arrived like that, one an expensive custom rod, but the worst was a hog back straps that took 3 weeks to get there, the cooler was busted open, the last one was a package of kraut, hot sauce, and apple pie shine that was crushed.

Or others who have had firearms or firearms parts for over 2 years. Same w others and knives.

Not going to call em out by name, if slipping through the cracks more power to em.

Or they could be paying, none of my business.

ATF might be interested in his FFL records as well.
I’m pretty sure hundreds and hundreds of rifles is a bit beyond personal casual sales.
