Hi guys, recently I am doing a trade and since I have less feedbacks than the other party, he asked me to ship first which I agreed
since that's common to see in firearm WTT ads and I have done so a couple times before.
I dropped it off at my FFL on a Tuesday and it went en-route the next day. Then on Thursday I asked when would the other party ship,
and to my surprise he said he meant to receive my trade first before shipping out his, and that's what ship first means.
I feel somewhat dumb now for assuming "ship first" means all the same for everyone, since now I would not get my trade firearm until
about two weeks later (if delayed at background check). I guess I'm just upset since I expected it to arrive sooner and be able to see it.
