???? had a Bad deal ??
never been turned over yet but had a few try there luck to pull me pants down ? . Just got a cracking Ruger .308 mk1 it just needed TLC and stock work cheap as chips so i'am happy with what I have found on the site .
You think that because you are on the same forum and share an interest that people are more likely to be straight with you. Which would be a wrong assumption. I suppose there is some truth in saying that if you have a firearm or shotgun certificate you can't be a real bad guy though. You would think. So it makes sense to take the same precautions as you would if you were buying privately elsewhere.
Having said that, I haven't had a bad deal on here.
Bought & sold on here without any problems whatsoever and have often sent items out on approval. I would say that I see it as a better place to buy rather than sell as prices realised seem to often be lower than I would expect.
I've bought and sold many items on here and never had a problem. In fact I've met some real good friends through some of the deals I've done on SD!
Yes there is always the possibility of a deal going belly up on here just as there is with any other Internet site that sells things.
Maybe I have been plain lucky so far so thanks to all the members out there who I have bought from and sold to!
Never had a problem from a few quid too a rifle,everyones been great,not sure if its me but i allways keep and log their details so next time i just look up who i,ve allready dealt with,hope you sort it,,, atb doug,
The gentleman asked if I was interested in selling it, so I replied that I was happy to send it to him FOC so long as postage is not too expensive, and he said he was happy to pay postage fees and I replied that if he wishes to make a small reimbursement then please use the money to support SD website. The way I see it, he gets something and the SD website gets something from it too.
