    I just sent a member from the PA gun forum a PM to tell him I want to buy his S&W M&PC 9mm NIB for his asking price of $350 He ask me could we meet FTF and do a private sale. I told him "no that's not legal" He said he just moved from Ohio and they didn't need to do that and he wants to meet me for a FTF sale. He is a new member joined Nov 2012. I told him FTF at a FFL only or forget it. He did not respond back to me even though I told him I will pay transfer. I think he was a ATF scumbag or something!

    Maybe he has not had to do that in the past so he does not understand it fully. Here is Texas you can meet anywhere and do a sale with no FFL. I have bought and sold a pretty good amount of guns in parking lots and at gun shows this way.

    I explained to him it's the law in PA and I will pay for transfer and he stopped the communication. It was a sweet deal but that's that:crying:

    Who knows why he cut the communication. I have bought and sold on Texas Gun Trader roughly 6 times, meeting in parking lots at Best Buy, Home Depot etc. Bought twice and sold the other four times. Transactions from $500 to $2500. Never an issue. But I bet some folks have had bad experiences. Something else will come along for you.

    Sounds to me like he wants to meet you for a little robbery. And FFL holders frown on that, so he wants to do it privately.

    Have you noticed on Teas Gun Trader the prices have gone up to the price of a Springfield Socom II for a WASR AK? The silliness has infected there as well. I looked at it just the other day to amuse myself with the gouging and panic buying.

    Heck, I figured most gun enthusiasts in Texas already had an AR and an AK in their collection.

    Just went over to that site today to look around, but it was down for maintenance. I am not surprised to hear about the pricing though. Heck it is going on here on GT in the classified section.

    I would love to sell a couple of ARs to get a new 1911 or two :supergrin:

    I rarely duplicate things, unless, of course, my wife decides she likes something. Then, out of a sense of preservation, I get her the copy.:supergrin:

    Try to see if you can start an arguement with him on F&F, Waco or Ruby Ridge. If he gets all indignant and defensive, he's probably a BAFEces puke. If he agrees with you he's probably okay............ or he's a well disciplined BATFEces puke.

    He might not know the laws in PA. Where I live you can do a private sale FTF with no problem.
