    I'll put it this way.

    It's 2012.

    If you can't even take pics and get 'em on the internet in a decent format with some reasonably intelligent dialogue, I'm not gonna do business with you.

    And don't even try to get me to mess with a fax machine.

    i will not even look at a internet classified for any thing if it doesn't have a picture. Makes me suspicious, its to easy to upload a picture.

    It's much harder to sell without pics.

    OK, use a phone with a camera, or a cheap digital camera, take good pictures of both sides of the gun in decent light. Then download the pics to your computer. You might have to first download some software from a disc if you use a digital camera. After you download the pics of your guns to your computer, you can go to one of the many free websites, photobucket is one of them where you can then download your pics from your computer to photobucket. Photobucket will then have a link that you will copy and then paste that link in your ad for the gun, then you will have a picture or two of the gun, making selling the gun a lot easier. Once you do this a time or two, it is a snap, not really much to it at all. The photobucket website explains what needs to be done. I am including a recent photobucket pic of a Colt Ace 22 that I took outside in sunlight with just a phone camera for an example.

    What if im dishonest enough to put up a STOCK photo of a BENTLEY and deliver you a Ford?
    IMHO. Only buy FTF.

    Get pics... If not, you'll decrease the price enough where someone is willing to take a risk. If you post a city/state you're close to someone on here might even be able to help you out for a 6-pack (or something).
