    I have had a rough day. My day started out with a fight with a gunbroker seller whom I felt mis-represented his product, tacked on a bunch of additional costs and was extremely rude to me. I will not do business with someone who is rude to their customer.

    I have done business with some of you in the past and have been a member of this board and others for quite some time. I think I am a pretty level headed fair person. I do have a temper and I have been known to say things without thinking but am I wrong to get upset at rude behaviour from a merchent???

    Anywho negative feedback was sent both directions and I am rather bummed. I am a very good seller and buyer as a rule, I just cannot abide by rude treatment to a customer. I would never do it to somebody I was selling to and will not take it myself. Hell I even flew somebody into Nashville an put them up for a night when I sold my Lightning. I always promptly in the manner asked for.

    Sorry I just had to vent. Maybe I shouldn't be so demanding.

    I thought about posting negative feedback about the seller here and other places but it's not worth the headache and as much of an a$$ as I can be I guess it's better to follow my Catholic upbringing and let bygons be bygons.

    I don't think it is too much to ask couteous treatment from any merchant towards a customer. Even as you say that treatment goes both ways. Now, I am NOT saying that you acted in a discourteous manner. So please don't take it in that manner.

    Just to play devil's advocate, you stated that you were having a bad day. Maybe this other person was also having a bad day. Have you dealt with this seller in the past? Were the results satisfactory to both of you? If the aswers to both of those is yes maybe you can patch things up an move on. If not, well, there are thousands of other sellers out there.

    Without knowing the details I've never known you to be anything but pleasant and courteous. Not much more can be said than that. I hope it all works out.

    I have heard mucho bad stories about gunbroker.com not enforcing its rules WRT negative feed back & the like on the SELLERS...some of whom take advantage of it and are multiple-offenders. So, you can't look at a seller's feedback and determine if they're a straight-shooter or a dirtbag.

    Enough bad stories from enough credible folks that I will not use gunbroker.com for squat. If it's on gunbroker, I don't need it and won't bid on it.

    Actually I have used it quite extensively and have always, up to this point, had great experiences.

    I guess like anything else you are bound to have a bad one now and then.

    Having worked with you for several years, I made my decision about you years ago.:neener:

    Seriously though, sometimes we, as GOOD people get extremely disappointed by the behavior of lesser people.

    CS, I know what you mean. I'm not sure it's because I've gotten older or the world in general has gotten more rude and dishonest. But, I'm with you.

    I'm less inclined, over time, to put up with poor customer service whether it be from a gun seller, or from anyone else. I was in a store today waiting at check out and the guy in front of me dropped a few dollars on the ground without noticing. I tapped him on the shoulder and pointed out the bills and he said "Thanks, these days most people wouldn't tell me that."

    Sad, and yet probably true.

    Still, I don't think being a Christian means you never respond to being wronged. You're a customer no matter what your belief. A seller misrepresenting an item is just dishonest and demands your objection.
