problems of online dealing

Heres my problem. Why does everyone trying to sell a gun online have to go out of there way to become the most despicable used car salesman?

Why go out of the way to make an annoying process as horrid as it can be?

Without being more specific most will disagree with you. I've had great experiences buying online. I believe most here have. What set you off?

Is there something specific here or is this just a grumpy rant? Which, by the way we don't do.
I step out of the shower wearing nothing but an AR-15 and a frown.

Superior gear will never make up for a lack of training or attitude.

I have bought and sold thousands of guns online. Most of the transactions were smooth as can be. Usually you can tell which sellers are going to be a pain before making the purchase and avoid them. Buyers, not so much.

I've bought several guns online, and ammo. Each transaction was smooth. Why? Because I did my homework and communicated to make it that way. Buying anything online requires effort on the part of the seller AND the buyer, and it is up to the buyer to look at the advertisement, and make a determination if the seller is someone they want to do business with.

So if you're looking for sympathy, I think THR is the wrong place.

I have bought multiple firearms online both from auction sites and retailers using my Type 03 FFL. Never had an issue. There is an effort and usually involves sending original copies of information and dealing with people who may not know what your local laws may require. It takes time but usually works well.

Ive never had an issue buying or selling. Smells more trollish than anything
