    I've bought and sold a ton of parts, accsy's , and $300-700 knives. Purchased two guns, off GB- both fine transactions- though I confess one was a "cheat": the seller was local, I was two weeks from payday, so I sent him an email, asking that if it didn't sell, would he keep me in mind, for a possible FTF. Worked out, he posted a Buy It Now, and was willing to wait. Perfect deal on a mint Seecamp! ($330, too!! )

    Too late, you changed the game after I voted!

    I've bought a lot of things from online auctions (eBay and OnSale-no longer around). Only a couple of these items were gun related. No purchase of guns from any online auctions to date however.

    I've lucked out and have several successful online transactions to include a few Gunbroker, Auction Arms and gun forum-initiated transactions.

    That's the assumption I went with - I voted "no", but I have bought golf clubs from ebay a long time ago.

    My biggest concern is that the prices don't seem to be any lower than the gunshops around here once you figure in shipping and transfer fees (although a pawn shop not too far from here will do the transfer for a few dollars). Reputable websites, forum members and locals all seem to have better prices.
