    That stinks, you never know! Most crooks sell them before they make it on NCIC!

    I was just short of getting scammed by shutUdown posting a Colt Hunter on the 5th of May. His communications are poor sentence structure and poorly typed. The pictures were sent but the first batch with replaced foam in the Haliburton case. When asked about it he sent another picture of one complete with the foam cutouts, etc. His explanation was a friend sold some odd stuff and he had "both" now. I committed to buy but requested we do it through a 3rd party, my FFL, to escrow the funds and then of course the correspondence ended. He signed up the day he posted the gun. Also listed an Anaconda that was "sold". I hope another member didn't get taken. It has shaken my confidence in purchases. Now I am looking for a Hunter again.

    I also commited to buy that Hunter but backed out for many of the same reasons. I think what he did was post a few times so he would look legit.

    Thanks

    I have "ALMOST" been cought in one of those scames befor. You really have to be careful. Someone needs to come up with a list of"WARNING" signs.

    I sometimes ask for a picture of something unusual like just the grips only. If they don't have it--no picture no gun.

    you should use a third party when dealing with any type of weapon....I always use a gun store to set up a buy...that way the risk is nearly none...
