"Payment in full via wire transfer only at the close of auction. "NO EXCEPTIONS" "
I love how demanding these people are also..... You think you could wait for a check to clear at 30K, not like the gun is going anywhere soon..... Forgot to add the 50 buck shipping and handling charges though.... dry.gif

I love that he wants that much for a 15K weapon and doesn't even show one photo. dry.gif

Sounds fishy to me

What makes it worse - he bought it NEW a while back. That means it has to be a Westie, right? Transferrable, but probably not C&R.

All Westie M-1's are c&r but at that price it better be made of something more precious than steel. biggrin.gif

Did you notice that all his auctions have '0' bids? Anyone want to bother sending the guy a note and ask what planet he's from?

The dude just has his ads for 2010 posted now. Sort of like the Christmas decorations and gift wrap that are already up at my local drugstore.
