I answered an ad on the SC Emporium from someone who wanted to trade for/buy a drag bag. He offered AR15 mags. Being an AR shooter, and recently picking up a new Eagle bag I had an extra. I had a little used Carlos Hatcock Edition Blackhawk bag/shooting mat. It had carried my rifle to a shooting class at Badlands, and to the range a few times. Some dirt on it but no wear or tears. In excellent condition. I couldn't remember what I paid for it, but it retails on the Blackhawk site for $234. I figured I probably didn't pay list, and it was used some, so I thought that $125 was a fair deal. Billy Powell said he had AR15 mags to trade .I made an offer or the bag for 6 like new condition AR mags, which I assumed were USGI. I drove home from St Louis the day before Thanksgiving, boxed up the bag and sent it off before getting the bag, because Billy Powell thought "we should ship at the same time." In an email I sent him telling him I had shipped the bags he replied "your mags went out today too, UPS."
I finally checked on my package and it was delivered to Billy Powell on Nov 30th. I sent him an email and he replied he had "forgotten" to send the mags. Then he promised me he would ship them to me and I would have a tracking number by 0900 the next morning. Didn't happen, although he did send me a tracking number later in the day.
I got home today and opened the box. I received six new blued steel mags, of very poor quality, with Colt floor plates on them.
He lied to me, and he has no honor. I emailed him to allow him to respond and rectify the screwing I feel I have taken, but he has not responded. I have dealt with many people over the net and bought and sold literally thousands of dollars worth of firearms and good, and this is the first time I have gotten screwed. DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!!!!
