Danger, Will Robinson! Could be one of our "friends" in "F Troop" trying to set you up! Watch out of men dressed in black, bearing "gifts".

You don't have to sell it to the guy do you? I agree with you. Sounds kinda fishy. Good luck with selling it anyway.

Hey how much you selling that for? Been looking for a Tec9 myself. Simple reason is cause I couldn't have one when I live in CA.
Link Posted: 7/3/2001 12:08:06 PM EDT
Just curious, how much are you selling it for?

I hate to admit it but I have a cousin down south who "volunteers" for the local Democratic party who's "job" it is to gather data on how "easy" it is to buy illegal guns etc. I really really hate him, but this sounds just like his m.o. Avoid this person at all costs. Get as much personal info on him as possible, he will back off when you tell him he needs to fill out appropriate paperwork for the purchase. Damn him, I'm gonna call my aunt up and yell at her to tell him to get a real life! Sorry dude. Just avoid these people and keep things above board with your transactions, that is the only way to get them to back off.

I had a friend who was selling his Tec-9 and got the same type of phone call. They asked him all the same questions. I say stay as far from him as you can, they may just be looking for you to talk yourself into prison.

I used to advertise guns for sale in the newspaper. One time a guy wanted to trade me a wood burning stove for one. I knew he had to be a loon. [:)] Who would even consider such a goofy trade!

I agree. You don't have to sell it. If somebody walked into the gunstore and asked these questions, they would be asked to leave. Yes, there are ways to convert almost every semi to full, but that is inappropriate. Ask him all about himself and he will probably make like an oyster and clam up. Helping people with questions is one thing, getting fined or put in jail by the buttholes that think they can trap you. Good luck, Ice

Watch-Six I would have taken the trade!!!! A good wood stove is over $600. Hell even a bad one is still over $250. BISHOP

It was probaly some moron that has seen to many movies on TV thinking that the TEC-9 is a machine pistol. I was at a gun shop and this guy was looking at an AK and he asked the owner if he knew how to modify it to shoot full auto. The owners asked "Full auto what?". The guy asked how hard was it to buy this machine gun? The owner said first its a rifle not a machine gun second you fill out the paper work and I call your background check in and you could leave the store with. When the guy heard background he all of sudden became un interested. Six

If you publicly advertise a gun for sale, you are telling every type of " bad man " where your guns are. God bless gun shows !!

First of all this is how you answer a d ck like that. Sir let me have you phone number. Name and other info in the begining of conversation. Then when you get as much as you can you tell him what he is proposing to do is illegal and you do not want to have anything to do with it. I have your info on file and I will only sell this firearm in compliance to all laws. As a moral situation I can't sell this to you cause you are looking to break many laws and I don't want any part of it. Thank you and have a nice day. Click

He was probably transmitting his pickup/delivery info to dispatch. I do that all the time

Ah, a preban Tec-9 mini in stainless. Not too many of those are floating around. As for that phone call, if the moron calls back again-- "it's been sold." Now the moron knows it's no longer for sale and is not in your home. Hit the gun show. But, i think you may have better luck asking $400-$500. But, if you can get what you're asking, more power to you. Mike

tell that guy to fu** off
Link Posted: 7/4/2001 5:17:00 PM EDT
There are actually people who are too stupid for their own good. The guy was not necessarily with the FEDS. He could have been just your typical everyday idiot.
Link Posted: 7/4/2001 7:02:34 PM EDT
As was explained in the book "Unintended Cosequences", any moron who would ask you questions like that does not deserve a civil reply. You have a moral obligation to not sell firearms to morons. With this country going to hell in a handbasket more and more on a daily basis, there are fewer and fewer people that are worthy (or so it seems).

I've got a gun that is just like that tech-9 stainless, but mine is not threaded, how much you think it is worth(has 32rd mag, I believe it is an AB10)
Link Posted: 7/4/2001 7:47:29 PM EDT
If he calls back tell him it's already sold.
