    "Don't know the round count but it seems to be low."

    Wish I had a nickel for every time I read this in all the forum classifieds. That's really sell-speak for, "I have no idea how many rounds went down the barrel as I am the fifth owner but I would like to believe it's really not that many and really worth paying the price that I am asking. And if it ends up that, golly-day, it has 12000 rounds, don't blame me. I just right up front said that I didn't know the round count."

    Or, come to think of it, "All the girls in the dorm really like her." Blind date warning!
