take your med's and get some sleep.

Seriously...maybe the guy has a life and isn't sitting there waiting for your response.

Wait 24hours, if you don't get a response move to the next potential buyer.

I personaly would sell to the next buyer and if he somehow sends funds via paypal , refuse them. If he sends a MO, mail it back to him.

Move on....

I would give him until this evening to respond to your emails. He might be at work. If he dosent respond then go to the next bidder in line.

Wait.


A deal is a deal. If these mags are that hot, you can always sell them next week if this guy falls through.



I had a sale going where my buyer disappeared for awhile. I waited. Good thing, it turned out he was a cop and was shot on duty!

I would have looked like a real ass flaming this guy when he's in a hospital bed.

If your last communication was at 10 p.m. last night, I think you should give him a little more time to respond. Some people arent on their comps 24/7, he might not of gotten your email.

If he doesnt respond by later today, you could offer it to the next buyer.

Agreed. If he returns home from work to find that you've sold them to someone else, he'd have justifiable cause to leave neg. feedback in the EE.

So, are you trying to dupe someone into buying preban mags when we are so close to Monday? If so, shame on you and I'm glad that the buyer came to his/her senses.

Edit to add: Even worse, are you trying to dump some 10-rounders?

Your best bet is to move on and be happy that the AWB is sunsetting.

What the fuck, kind of statment is this? He has an ad on the EE. He has many interested. Why in the world would you belittle him for that?

1) Unfortunately the AWB DOES NOT end for everyone. You in Ca should know this.

2) Hunting restrictions may necessitate smaller capacity magazines.



Zander, I believe 24 hours in enough alloted time to give this person. Email the next in line the situation and tell them that you are giving the first in line until 10:00 pm est. That would be fairest in all accounts. That's what I would do.

Dude just give him some time.

Less than 12 hours is NOTHING compared to some of the guys I'VE sold to over the years! lol

My favorites are the buyers who scream "I'LL TAKE IT!!!!" 30 seconds after you post an item for sale (Usually in front of a bunch of other would-be buyers) and then D-R-A-G the payment on for a week. I always consider a deal a deal and wait 'till I hear from the person (Or fail to hear from him for several days) before I re-post something as available again.

WHY ARE YOU YELLING?


I can't believe the nerve of some buyers, taking 18 whole hours to complete an email transaction, and not responding to 'numerous' emails within that time. I bet he actually had the gall to sleep last night, and go to work today. Someone needs to set him straight.
