I've given up for a while, had a trade going with someone on here and they would have scored, in my opinion, a great deal because I really liked what they offered and boom, they disappear.

I will no longer deal with folks who are not displaying a "Supporter" ribbon under their screen name. I think it is only fair to trade with those who are willing to support the effort here on Ok Shooters. I know that the ribbon doesn't give any reassurance but if a fellow member is willing to invest a few dollars it will ease my mind about how many folks come and go on here.

I am eagerly waiting for all the comments about freedom and supporting those who won't support the page, let 'er rip!

Can't blame you for being annoyed based upon your experiences...........I've never had good luck with Armslist.
Can't really blame you on the 18 year old handgun issue either........

Also, I had a member here welch on me last week because he read some bad reviews about the scope I'm selling. After we agreed on price, time and place to meet and all that. He knows who he is.
Seems like the time for research is before ya make a deal.

Maybe it's just me...

I agree and disagree on this one. It sucks that it happened but the guy gave plenty of advance notice about changing his mind. Not sure of the price agreed to but when you’re changing money, both parties should be OK to change their minds

I grew up being taught to keep my word, which means keeping a deal. Unless there's a flat-out misrepresentation of the item, I don't see a reason to back out.

Other than emergencies, any changes made to an existing deal should be acceptable to BOTH parties. And if there is an emergency (or flat tire or whatever), let the other guy know what's going on.

Again, just my 2¢ ... :drunk2:

Same way on FB for non-firearms items. Listed a go cart a month ago for $300. I got offers for $150 and $200. I had one kid messaging me ten times a day from two different accounts. Finally said screw it and took down the post.

I have backed out of a deal only once due to unforeseen circumstances. I let the seller know the situation and they were understanding and kind enough to let me out of it. Communication is the key.
