Re: Larry Root is back - 01/20/21

I dont buy and sell chit on here, this is not my personal flea market

But from the whining, i gather the dude puts a rifle to sell and runs it on several forums and sell the same thing to 5 people

Or doesnt even own the rifle and too lazy to make an ad and co-opts the ad from somewhere else and “sells” to others again like up above

I might me way off

Or have the wrong scammer

Re: Larry Root is back - 01/20/21

I don’t think anyone is surprised that Larry Root is a POS but I would like some info about the “rip off”.

A drive-by hit and run type post is in the same class as Larry Root himself and isn’t a good look for the OP. A quick look at the OP’s posting history tells me a lot. The OP uses the free classified section on the Campfire like his own personal storefront and apparently he thinks that this section, “The Campfire”, is his feedback section. 😂

Re: Larry Root is back - 01/20/21

So plot twist

The OP is actually larry root pretending to be a victim of larry room to feel out the crowd for a new crop of schmucks


That’s my take

Yea, kinda annoys me when their only post are in the classifieds.

Re: Larry Root is back - 01/20/21

I recently bumped into a rifle that Larry had advertised on GB, but I can't recall what seller name he was using. A quick check of the BATF list of FFLs in Pinedale, WY, doesn't include one with Larry's name or address within 25 miles of 82941. I wouldn't buy anything from Larry, but what you do is your business, not mine.

Selling to Larry is totally different than buying from him.

When you sell something, the buyer sends his money to you and is depending on your integrity to have described your property accurately. When you buy something, you're depending on the seller's integrity to describe his property accurately. If you have faith in a seller's integrity, you make the purchase. If not, you probably don't buy from him unless you are desperate to have whatever he is selling.

As I wrote previously, I wouldn't buy anything from Larry, but what you do is your business, not mine. Since I wouldn't buy from him, I wouldn't sell to him on general principles.

Think it was because he was just an ass hole, and would talk about chit he knew nothing about like he was an expert on it and would get pissed when someone called him out on it.

Re: Larry Root is back - 01/20/21

Do the people that do these forum deals conduct any kind of a history search on the seller? If I posted something for sale, I wouldn't expect anyone to feel cozy with me having been here for only 6 months. If the guy is that big of an azzhole, surely it would come out in his forum posts.

Re: Larry Root is back - 01/20/21

Whenever Larry's latest handle gets outed, Rick folds the posts for the new name into Oldman1942.

If Larry has nothing to hide from, why does he change his handle so often?

Fosteology does a pretty good job of finding Larry and outing him when he pops up with a new persona.
Posted By: Dirtfarmer

Re: Larry Root is back - 01/20/21

He was sweating a road trip by Bricktop to Pinedale, WY, where he lived when not in Key West.

It was cheap entertainment.

Larry was always the smartest guy in the room, smartest guy he knew, not bashful in letting it be known. Truly a legend in his own mind.

I sold him (unknowingly) a Trijicon scope - I didn't recognize whatever username he assumed at the time. And only until he sent me shipping info did I recognize who I was dealing with.

I begrudgingly continued with the transaction - he paid, I shipped. I just knew there'd be something the old beotch would whine about and he did not disappoint. smile

Fost has a certain IT skill set that comes in real handy when ole Larry is trying to be sneaky. He's not fooled Fost, yet. Not likely to.

Larry may not be as smart as advertised, like bragging about his Mensa Society membership, etc.

Re: Larry Root is back - 01/20/21

Sold him a scope when he was going by Mark 5 ,no problem at all. Seems a lot less annoying than brickbrain to me...
Posted By: vacrt2002

Re: Larry Root is back - 01/20/21

Seems he got banned on long range hunting and in the middle of a transaction with me. He sent me an email saying he’d ship once the PayPal issue is resolved there is no PP issue to resolve.

We’ll see it may work out.

I hope that it works out for you.

I've never heard of Larry welching on a deal, only that he has a reputation of misrepresenting the condition of things that he sells.

Not quite. He'll overstate/misrepresent the condition of items; bitch about the condition of items he buys; post items in multiple spots, have folks thinking they're the buyer, yank the rug out when it sells to someone else he contacted letting them know he had another buyer to see if they'd up the price; misrepresent the reasoning for wanting to buy/sell (once had a WTB for a sick kid, someone either donated or sold him a rifle for basically nothing, turned around and sold it for a huge profit (profit went to him, not the sick kid), bragged later about it); lie about everything; pretend he's someone else; stir up crap in posts for no reason; take over-the-top-offense to anything he doesn't agree with; and just be an overall douchebag. He's had around 200 (could be more) identities on this forum alone as every time he gets outed, that profile gets booted, and another ends up appearing. There could be more, this is just going from memory. He has had just enough smooth transactions to cast doubt and have a few folks pipe up (like this thread). He responded to a wtb post I had years ago, sent me pics, wanted too much for the item, got pissy when I asked questions, and stopped responding to messages. This was after I realized it was him, but he had a scope I wanted so I was willing to try and work out a deal. Apparently for him, working out a deal means abiding by his terms and price or you can GFY. He did his best to derail a different WTB post I had after that for no reason whatsoever other than I think he was trying to get back at me for not buying the scope from him. Either way, he's a prick.
