    And why would an FFL "Purposely damage" your gun?

    Do you mean that take a screw driver to it or use it as an oar or hammer?

    Do you mean you think they do something just so yours won't be as nice as theirs?

    Let's just say my first experience buying a firearm was horrible even though I knew what I came to buy and was treated like crap, but then again it was bass pro :barf::barf:

    I cannot imagine a brick-n-mortar store would do it as it would make it hard to sell...or they would have to discount it for the damage

    Could you provide some details? When you make a possibly defamatory claim such as this, you should provide at least some information.

    I could believe that they might drop the weapon or something but purposely damaging it?
    Strange...

    Nothing has happened. But I do fear this as a bad experience with my first ffl it could happen. But I'm just being a bit nervous about a new FFL I have now but they look ok so I think I'll stick with them for my future purchases.

    What I mean is more like sabotaging it so it goes unnoticed and blows up when you fire it or kaboom:eek::what:

    I've always been skeptical of buying firearms online because of the ffl transfer. When you get the firearm shipped to your local ffl, it seems like they aren't obligated to give you what u ordered...

    Uh....don't take this the wrong way, but have you been checked out recently? If not, I would make an appointment.

    Seriously?

    Um, no. No more than I worry if my mechanic may sabotage my car, or if the mailman may steal Christmas cards.

    your local FFL or the seller's FFL?

    If you don't receive what you ordered, you aren't obligated to accept it

    local ffl... Say I buy a wilson combat cbq pistol from gunsamerica.com. I pay the seller via credit card and tell him which local ffl to send it to. I'm afraid that since its paid for the ffl really could keep this pistol.

    Federal law...

    it would be a big deal to the ATF, and would carry federal jail time.

    Not to mention that there would be tons of paperwork verifying that it was shipped to them, and you paid for it, etc. It would be very easy for even the most incompetent lawyer to win the case in your favor.
