    Well the guy called me a little while ago and backed out of the deal at the last second. He decided to sell it to another buyer. We had worked a verbal deal out and agreed to meet. I know it was his gun and he can sell it to whomever he wants.......it just chips my hide that a man's word means nothing anymore. If you agree to do something then do it and stick to your word!!!!! It was inconvient for me to go run out to the ATM to get the cash and then set around and wait a couple hours waiting on him only to be backed out on.

    Sorry for the bad deal Doc. Could have had something to do with you calling us "boys". LOL
    No really, that's a bummer. Hope you find a better deal in the near future.

    Bummer. FTF sales freak me out anyway. Handling guns with a stranger just seems like bad juju to me.

    I know it sucks, I've got a friend who was trying to sell his car last week online. Out of the people who he lined up to come look at it, only 1 person had the decency to actually show up and come look and test drive it.

    The others didn't even bother to call he said.

    People are just rude these days.
