    Is BR PO that BAD!!!!

    Im a ways away from most members on here.I spend plenty on gun parts,,etc..
    But it seems every time I msg someone and say ,can you ship? They just play
    dumb or don't msg back at all or even just say,Id rather not.

    Seriously ,Is the NO,,BR PO's that bad.I mail daily,,sometimes to usa,sometimes
    to china,,germany,japan,etc..Ive never stood in a po line more than 3 minutes,
    ever.And now days UPS or fedex picks it up off your front porch for free!!!

    I asked a guy a few days back,I said: "So you would rather drive 30 miles,meet
    some stranger that may kill you and spend $25 in gas,,get a flat and possibly
    break down". The individual answered,"Id rather get a flat and be stuck on hwy
    10 rather than ship.

    SERIOUSLY?????

    I personally wouldn't buy anything from an out-of-state user unless it was a rare firearm or a very high-quality rifle. If that was the case, I'd work with an attorney and get him and the seller's FFL to work together to make sure that I got the firearm sent across state lines and that money isn't transferred until conditions are met.

    There is just too much of a risk of sending someone money and never getting anything back.

    Also, please don't take offense, but look at your post: Terrible formatting, poor grammar, and a general lack of proofreading. This is something common of scammers from other countries. I don't think that's the case with you, but I can certainly see how it would worry others. If you clean up your posts, you might have a slightly better chance, but I imagine that most users just don't want to take the risk of buying/selling across state lines and dealing with the transfer of money or the 'he said/she said.'

    To add, it's much more likely that someone will scam you over the internet than getting (insert negative verb) in person.

    I'm in Louisiana lol.. I'm 128 miles away from BR,,NO area.And no one said
    anything about shipping a firearm.I mean just parts,etc...

    You send money across state lines on something every time you buy online.
    And if you do ,as I do,send through paypal.Your guaranteed to get your money
    back,If something goes wrong.

    So don't trust anyone ever again on this site to be honest? Seriously ?I thought
    we had a better group on here,but ok lol

    Your location says Iowa.

    There's a big different between buying something in an online portal and buying from an individual. Most people who use PayPal want it sent via frends/family as well, which voids the getting your money back part.

    It's not necessarily a lack of trust, it's just an unnecessary risk.

    I must be the one in a million person who has bought from every online forum that deals with gun parts, rc car parts, and motorcycle parts and not had a single time that I did not recieve what I paid for. I did recently have to wait 2 months for a guy in California to ship me some parts, but he did keep up good communication so I guess it worked out.

    I have paid via PayPal, sent usps money orders and even mailed cash... not much cash mailed, but it did get there.

    To the OP, if you want anything I have for sale in the marketplace I am more than happy to mail it. I have a USPS, ups, and FedEx acct and i mail usps priority from my desk daily... I sell used car parts so I ship alot.

    I would rather ship than meet, if possible. My schedule is always full. No idea why people dont like shipping.

    We do have a great group here. I just paypal'd someone on here for an item and he's going to drop it in the mail soon. He's been on here for almost 7 years and has over 1200 posts on here. I'm a mod on here with 2700 posts. You're a newcomer and relatively unknown. You picked a screen name that protects your anonymity on here. It's not personal but it's unreasonable to expect everyone here to trust you just because you are here and have a few posts.

    I hate shipping. I don't ship on the regular so I don't keep shipping materials on hand. To ship, I've got to make an extra trip to the post office. I've offered shipping as an option in a couple of my ads but it would be an extra $25 to cover my time and the shipping costs.

    I don't mind shipping. I pass in front of the post office almost every day. You have to know when their busy times are. The PO box mail is ready for 10:00am, so all the business people are there picking up mail. Go early when they first open, or wait until late afternoon.
