    I saw a scope I wanted that was being sold by a “low count” member but his join date was years ago. I sent him a PM and he provided me with several links to his activity on some other shooting sites. After a half hour of “due diligence” research, I was 80% confident with the purchase. I sent the payment and held my breath. Three days later, the scope arrived!
    A little research can be well worth it!
    Then, LarryDScott mentions he’s got one available. That was much easier! The scope got to me before my check got to him!
    I do like to deal with established members! It’s just so easy!

    $50.00, it's more than that. You'll have to ask the ones that I have GAVE stuff to.

    I have bought and sold quite a bit of stuff on this forum. Never a problem.

    Seems like a bunch of newbys have joined with all the negativity on other forums.

    Wish they would go away

    For many years, WW2 vets and blue collar baby boomer industrial workers were the backbone of the shooting sports. The loss of manufacturing jobs and the aging of the boomer generation are the causes of the shooting sports' decrease in enthusiasts. I doubt very much anything that's said here will deter anyone who is really interested in the sport.

    Welp it’s in our best interest to support all the newbs then. I’m not a baby boomer and I managed to get into guns somehow. A lot of my knowledge came from this forum and LRH. I was able to apply it in the field and come back and share. I remember when I was 0-0 for trade history, so someone took a risk with me.
