One more bump. Buyer backed out.
Thanks to the guys who made offeres, but on this one I can't take any trades on firearms.
Between shipping costs and $50 for my FFLs fees, I would have $90-$100 eaten up just to make a deal happen for a $200 gun.
Non-Gun trades are gladly accepted, but they have to take into account the $30-$40 shipping costs of this item.
Last bump for this then i'll keep it.
Six Easy Steps For Buyers To Make An Internet B/S/T Transaction Go Smoothly
Step 1: Before replying to this ad, I must ask myself…
“Is the item being sold here what I really want?”
If not, that’s OK as there will be other opportunities for me to find what I really do what.
If it is what I really want, then I had better act fast as the internet moves quickly and others might want this very same item and commit to purchase it faster than me. I should ask all of my questions PRIOR to committing to purchase the item. I won’t commit to buy the item and then say “Bluh…. Duh… Ummm… it really wuzn’t what I wanted”.
Step 2: Now that I’m sure this item being sold is really what I want, I must ask myself yet another question.
“Can I really afford this item?”
If not, I must accept the fact that it won’t belong to me on this day and not bother the seller with any inquires about it.
I should not commit to buying it if I won’t be able to pay.
If I can indeed afford it and have decided that I absolutely want it, then now is the time for me to consider making a commitment to purchase this item..
But how should I make this commitment?
Step 3: My commitment should be firm and absolute. Caveats that might possibly leave me room to back out are OK (pending pictures, pending questions, pending approval from wife, etc), but I understand that by making such clauses to my commitment, it may be trumped by another buyer who says “I’ll take it” without any qualification.
Step 4: Now, it is time for me to make my payment for this item that I have decided to purchase. My payment should be prompt and made in such a way that’s agreeable to the seller. Is there going to be a delay? In order to pay for the item, will I have to wait a week to get my paycheck? That’s OK as long as the seller knows and agrees to the wait.
Step 5: I have made my payment for my item! Now, I must wait. I won’t ask the seller to hold my hand through the entire transaction nor will I pester him with inquires as to the items status every 24 hours much like a child in the backseat of a car perpetually asking “ARE WE THERE YET? ARE WE THERE YET?” I shall be patient and allow a reasonable period of time to pass for my item to be delivered.
Step 6: The big day! My item has arrived!
Step 6- Subsection 1) Horray! It was exactly what I wanted all along! I shall notify the seller that it was received intact and leave appropriate feedback for him.
Step 6- Subsection 2) Uh oh… I am not happy with this item. I must now ask myself… Am I not happy with this item because it wasn’t as the seller had described it, or am I not happy with this item because I really didn’t understand what I was purchasing? If I am not happy with this item because it is not as described, I shall notify the seller immediately and give him an opportunity to make good. If I am not happy with it because I didn’t understand what I was purchasing, I shall immediately make an appointment with a fertility doctor to undergo sterilization to prevent my 55 IQ ass from polluting the gene pool any further.
