He seems trustable
Any bad ever come from a face to face sale?
Uh yeah they've gone bad, haven't you ever seen the bridge scene in Ronin or the end of The Departed?
Heh, just make sure you tell your friends and family where you are going.
make sure you're packin when you meat him
First of all, I live in Illinois, so im not really supposed to carry.
Secodn, Im 20, so I could get in a shitload of trouble if I got stopped with my CZ52
I figure bring my short 870 magnum with a tube extenstion and a couple boxes of buckshot.
I dont feel I have too much to worry about. Were planning on meeting right outside of EIU, where his daughter goes
It's your life. Do as you please.
just meet somewhere somewhat public. tell your friends where you are going and who you are meeting. taking a gun with you will be useless is you arent supposed to cc
I got his phone number, email, and arfcom name, so Im sure hes on the up and up.
watch your cornhole
If he tries to give you the keys to his car, run away.
nice knowin ya
if he tries to lead you into a tunnel where a waiting car has the other half of your money, dont do it.
if you do, shoot the sniper on the bridge first.
Squeal like a pig, boy... Go on.. do it.
Bend over and touch your toes. Im gonna show you where the wild goose goes.
expect to meet a guy dressed in black BDU's, surplus flak jacket, and an AR-15 with multiple sights, lasers, and lights
Sad thing is, thats most probably true.
Im not meeting him tonight btw. Took too long to get down to MO to look at a pos Nova earlier today
I've done two FTF transactions. One, I bought my AR-15, the other, I was trying to trade my kimber for a marlin lever action 45/70, but the dude didnt want to trade. I'm glad now because I sold it for $550 at a gun show
nova in spanish = no go
A friend of mine at work said the same thing.
No wonder they didnt do too well in mexico
Bring some flash bangs and smoke grenades if he tries to dicker.
Met up with a guy from gunbroker once to get some ammo so I didn't have to pay shipping charges. Guy was really friendly and pretty cool. Of course we were meeting in a Whataburger parking lot that was inside a Walmart parking lot so there was a lot of people.
You should be fine. I bought a bag of 7.62 ammo from a kid here on campus on the sidewalk next to the Circle K. Now that I think of it I traded for my PM9 in a Dari Queen parking lot, although it was with a friend/acquaintance.
