I gotta tell you guys, there are some real "interesting" people out there. [banghead]
I have an AR15 for sale on the Equipment Exchange, and in my ad I state "No Trades".
I get an email from someone...You make the call.
He asks: Are you interested in a trade for some super nice NIW USGI Parsons mags?
Me: Sure, how about 188 of them, that equals about $1500.
His reply: I didn't know the internet was connected to Mars. Get in your spaceship and fly a few thousand mags down here to earth. I'll buy em for $7.98 each.
Now I dunno, my ad states that I don't want to trade, yet I keep getting these [s]morons[/s] people who keep asking if I will take their "Hardly used RARE Jennings/Bryco and a couple hundred" for my rifle.
I thought it was a fair trade, I want $1500 for the rifle and he can give me 188 mags at $7.97 each.
What, you think I should have offered him $10.00 for 150?
Guess I'll get on my spaceship and go back to Mars.
This is something out of a John Travolta movie but tell him i will give him $1500 for 75 NIW Parsons mags and he can go buy your rifle.

I don't mind trade offers. If you leave that option open, and have something someone else wants, you will ALWAYS, (given some time), have the chance to trade UP!
I'll trade you for all the Spam in my BOB! I'll even drive down to Chehalis to pick it up.[;)]
