    look back at there posts. see if they have sold stuff before. and see if there is any bad comments on those sale threads.

    important thing is dont rush into buying. as there are lots of good cheap rifles about

    Twice I have bought rifles now on the net. Granted they were from RFD's. Both sent them on approval with my only risk being the postage. My view is if they were not as described they would not send them. They went straight to a rifle smith who checked them and gave them the all clear.

    You can also have a look at their profiles and see if they have any "Friends" listed. Many on here do, including me. It gives a good indication, if nothing else, you could always contact the "Friend" explaine the situation and get a reference.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
