    I have a couple of old .22s for sale on the local classified gun section....

    I got a call last night from a blocked number, asking about them.. But he started out like " I hear you have a couple of guns for sale?" Im like,, ya, a few, did you see them on KSL? ( The name of the website ).

    He said, No I just heard about them...

    ( Meanwhile I hear him typing furiously between each of his sentences ).

    He asked me how many rounds they could hold, I answered, them more typing in the background....

    Asked me what kind of magazine they have.... More typing....

    Asked me if I required a driver's license to buy them... More typing....

    I told him, it's cash and carry, must be 18. I was kind of weirded out because usually when someone calls, they already know all about the rifle I'm selling.

    He asks me if I will ship it to him in Idaho, I said no...... more furious typing....

    He asked if he could send a friend to go pick it up, I said I wouldn't be able to tell if it was him or his friend coming to pick it up, so it wouldn't matter.... More typing....

    He asked me if it still had serial numbers, I told him they were produced in the 30s and 40s and they did not have serial numbers because they were not required back then.... More typing...

    He asks " What's your address". Im like, ok, WTF.... I told him I usually just meet at the grocery store at X intersection to do any sales. He said thanks for the info, ten seconds of typing, and hung up.


    WTF??? :eek3::eek3::eek3:

    I didn't really get the full weird alarm until he asked my my address, the whole call only took a minute. 99% of the calls from classifieds are barely tolerable inquiries from retards and idiots anyway

    I agree, that's what first got me concerned, if I get the heebies from anyone I won't sell them a gun. I'm not really worried about getting in legal trouble, I have done nothing wrong nor would I be doing anything wrong or illegal with a cash and carry gun sale, just seemed odd, like some sort of spot check from the government.

    Probably some news reporter looking to make a name for themselves by blowing the lid off the F2F sale "scandal".

    Oh I would have had a field day with that.
    by the time I would have finished I'd probably have SWAT teams raiding my next door neighbor's house looking for the 2000 round beltfed fully auto .22s made in 1895 that I would have described

    I've actually had people try and contact me over "straw purchases" and other crazy shit before, but nothing quite like that.

    Damn dude..... That's strange. Here's hoping that you aren't going to visit club fed for a while....
