I am so tired of worthless armslist people!!! I got set up by a guy in OKC this evening. He set me up to waste my time and gas money. He wanted to buy a Sig 226 I have posted, and made it seem like he would take it for my asking price. We were supposed to meet at 7:20 at oncue express in Stroud. Well, I show up and he isin't there. I text him multiple times and he doesn't respond. I call him twice and no answer. At 7:34 he texts me and says he will be there in 30 minutes. I ask him if there is a problem and he doesn't say anything. I sat there until 8:15 and he never shows, he kept texting that he was en route, then he starts low balling me half my asking price and trying to make it seem like I'm selling a hunk of junk. By this time I'm pretty mad and I just leave and drive to the girlfriends house north of Stroud. I blocked him, his number is 4056690587 I don't know his name. Apparently he wasn't happy I called out another welcher in my ad. I guess people think it's okay to welch on deals. I am pretty livid right now, I put all the money I had in my gas tank to get down there. So, guess I will go home and eat tuna and sausages.

Personally, I think people need to be aware of the armslist people with zero integrity. That's not illegal. Apparently I'm a magnet for them!!!! FML!!!!!

Instead of putting your last $ in the tank, offer a discount equal to the cost of the gas to come to you if you want. That way if they don't show you haven't spent your last $. And in the end you end up with the same net profit.

Why in the world are you still driving to meet people? Unless I've dealt with the person before, I'm not driving far at all to meet up with them.

Armslist sucks since they started charging. Tulsa Gun Sales is a local and I'm going to support them - I'd much rather see them grow.
I have a few guns posted on Tulsa gun sales, trust me. I have sold one on there.

On the opposite end of the spectrum I just had a great deal with a guy off armslist. He was super nice, couldn't have been any nicer, former LE officer. Didn't get his name but a real stand up guy.

Got one today!

A former Muskogee dog catcher text me about a gun I have for sale and because I didn't accept his low offer I was accused of being a Nigerian scammer, a kid just messing around, and a thief. He said he was going to report me to the ATF as a scammer! I told him to have a blessed day and blocked him. God bless you sir. He came across as a power hungry, rude individual.
