trying to sell an unregisterable suppressor for a 10/22 on eBay? [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1755528613[/url]

R/C plane indeed.

From who? He's in Australia and beyond the reach of alphabet agents. He's still a dumb ass though. Australia has prisons also, the whole damn country use to be one.

He is from Australia. Is it possible this is a perfectly legal item there?
Link Posted: 8/11/2002 6:05:25 PM EST
He sure got a lot of bids in 8 days!
Link Posted: 8/11/2002 6:06:14 PM EST
I guess he thinks he is being cute with that listing. Like that is going to fool anyone.

It's more likely that he is an alphabet agent who is posting using a fake ID to ensnare some stupid buyer. The suppressor looks homemade BTW. Edited to add: Just noticed first bid wins. He's definetly a bad guy.

Alphabet soup agents must think people are incredibly stupid if they hope to catch soemone with this..... [spank]

Looks perfectly legal to me. [whacko]

Who really believes this is from Australia? Taking bids on the US site and refuses anything but paypal.... Multiple listings for the item.... Sold one item before, but greater than 6 months ago... Jake

Not many legal guns in Australia now. I was there last week & read in papers about the problem of illegal guns being smuggled into the country. A market for them since criminals know public won't/can't have.

WAIT!!!!! You mean I shouldn't have bid on this? I thought I was being sneaky!!![BD]

Zardoz: Not to be a grammar nazi, but your sig line should read "Me neither" to imply the negative.

Well...in that case, I shall take that as "constructive advice" and change it immediately! Ya nazi b*st*rd, you! [:D]

You can always place a bid and retract right away. Do it when there's more than 12 hours left before the auction ends. Of course, the retraction will end up in your feedback rating for 6 months.

1st BID WILL WIN AUCTION. I WILL END AUCTION ONCE I HAVE RECEIVED PAYMENT FROM THE FIRST BIDDER

Uhh, he wants you to bid on it, send him your money, while the auction is still running. Yeah, right.
Link Posted: 8/11/2002 9:17:16 PM EST
My guess is that he takes your money, doesn't ship you anything, claims it got lost in the mail and says, "What are you gonna do, call the cops and say you got ripped off trying to buy an illegal supressor?"
Link Posted: 8/12/2002 4:37:14 AM EST
I'd bid on it, but I haven't figured out how to attach the wings to my 10-22.
Link Posted: 8/12/2002 7:59:51 AM EST
I just wonder what that hose clamp is for? What a dumbass.[rolleyes]
Link Posted: 8/12/2002 8:42:46 AM EST
FREE SHIPPING worldwide! I'm on that baby. I'll let you guys know how it works on my Ruger R/C Plane as soon as I get it. Hopefully it'll reduce that low decible and sub-sonic range between the 10/22 like he says it will. Oh well, if it doesn't I'll just leave him negative feedback. Crash

How do you know they are really from Australia - could be the FBI posing as someone from Australia - - they have been know to do stuff like that you know - - - - just ask Randy Weaver ----- then put on your tinfoil hat [smoke]

What a tool! Are the JBTs this fucking stupid? 'ol Zarbe (the seller) has only 1 feedback and you can't see what it was for. Pretty weak. You are bidding on a RUGER silencer, I made up the shit about an R/C plane muffler pipe in order to throw off the eBay thought police. If you are unsure about this item, please send me an e-mail detailing your name, address, height, weight, race, eye color, and whether or not you have any identifying marks such as tattoos. A daytime phone number and place of business would also be useful information. I will ship this item worldwide, hopefully no one in Pakistan or The Golden Triangle will bid on it though. Thanks and good luck in the shootout with the ATF. When you hear about homeland security and stopping computer crime, this is the kind of shit that your tax money really goes to--some idiot in a computer room in an FBI satellite office posting the most ridiculous crap he can think of so as to ensnare the world's dumbest wannabe crooks and goofballs. After all, matching wits against a real criminal could be dangerous and unhealthy, especially for the stupid idiots making up the ranks of the US's alphabet agencies. The ATF has had its funding doubled in recent years and they added 2,000 some odd agents to their ranks. What did you think would be the result?
