    Guns america

    Have any of you bought from a seller on guns America that had no history? I am looking at a used gun at a great price but with no history of sales to go by I get a bit nervous about sending off several hundred bucks in a money order then waiting to see what happens.

    I have used gunsamerica to buy and sell guns, and so far I have never had any problems. However, I always make sure that the seller is verified and has some history/feedback. In order be verified you have to enter your name, address and credit card number; in that way gunsamerica can check if they are real. I should not buy a gun from a user that is not verified.

    I'd be leery of purchasing from someone who has no history. Granted someone has got to be the first purchaser from someone, but I'd rather it not be me.

    I don't want to be the one to initially find out if they are legit or not.
    No internal lock or magazine disconnect on my pistols!

    you may want to look at ARMSLIST - Free local gun classifieds. Buy, sell, or trade firearms in your local area. as well. With luck and a dream you may be able to find your purchase locally.

    If the seller is willing to give contact information, ie; an address and phone number, then my fears would be either relieved or verified by a phone call. You get the measure of the man by talking a little bit. Trust your instincts. I've purchased many guns from non-rated strangers, both on auction sites and forum classifieds, all with great results. If your "spider-sense" tingles, then walk away.
