Can y'all do us a favor & run a search before making a new feedback thread for someone? Seems like whenever I check in here lately, threads have to be merged :skep:
Everyone is making new threads without checking to see if there is already an existing thread. Yes, I realize that means more mouse clicking - sorry.

To do this:
In the Tactical Search window in top right, type (or copy/paste) in the screen name & press the enter key. This will bring up anything with that member's name in the thread title and any thread his/her/its screen name is in.
OR
Just below the Tactical Search window in top right there is a link, "Advanced search" - click on that.
Type (or copy/paste) the screen name in the keyword search, then next to "Search within:" select "Topic titles only" & then click on "Search"
You don't even have select the subforum as, odds are, there wouldn't be a thread titled by a user name elsewhere on the public forum. Yes, there are a couple of exceptions but the list will be short, just select the thread from the feedback forum.

Thanks.

General info - even in the classifieds, a single post pointing out a law(s) that may make a sale illegal is not considered ad stomping or conversation.

Re: WTT 2 PMR30 for 5.7

Post by africa1 » 13 Mar 2013, 19:25

For what it is worth, my PMR-30 is at auction now on the Gunrunner sitting at $1040 with one day to go. A 5x7 is at $1860 with a day to go. Who knows what the final prices will be. Just a heck of a lot more than a year ago. Unreal, like money has no value any more when it comes to guns.

Different knife, that one doesn't have the blacked out blade. And for collectors, that matters, how much is up for debate, or more importantly current market. And I have no interest in the sale. Also might be better to pm the seller that.

Please keep discussions in this thread and out of the ads. It would be easier for all those concerned if you were to provide a link to the relevant ad.

Also, if you don't like/agree with the price someone is asking then you can PM/email them about it, post your comment(s) here, or simply ignore the ad.

Agreed, you should be able to press charges & get your gun back unless he had your permission to sell it.

That said, when I sold a couple of my guns to a store, they didn't ask for proof of ownership nor did they run the serial numbers to see if the guns were stolen. In any case, you still should have legal recourse against the uncle at the very least.

Ok if you want the back story, first I got screwed by my insurance company. I used USAA for banking and insurance and updated my information when I moved, and much later I randomly get an automated call saying they are going to cancel my insurance immediately if I don't pay my bill. When I look it up I find that instead of notifying me that I was a few dollars short for the next six months insurance payment, the insurance section was happy to bill the bank section twice a month causing the bank to deduct their $60 bounced payment fee until there literally was just change left in that savings account. Only then did they call, when the next bounced payment wasn't going to get them another fee. So I find out I owe them for the last 5 months insurance that was never paid, the next six months insurance if I want to keep them, and that the money they soaked up in fees before notifying me of all this is just gone (which was just shy of paying the last 6 months insurance). Also its my fault, because I didn't know updating my address/email/phone in the website for the insurance didn't update it for the bank side too, even though its the same exact same website, apparently they don't talk and the bank was sending those bounce payment notifications to a ship floating around in the gulf (and the insurance was happy to let that happen until the bank wouldn't get their $60 fee again, funny how that works).

So on that note, I needed to come up with money fast. My uncle is a nice guy but not extremely knowledgeable when it comes to guns. I instructed him how to use and gave him some ammo for his first one, which was a bare bones stock glock 17 he way overpaid for from some gun store not too long ago. I told him when he showed it to me that it was nice but its a $600 gun at best that he could have picked up a perfectly functional used one for $400-500, and that $850+ was them taking him for a sucker. Anyways I explained my situation to him, that I didn't want to sell my fiveseven but I need $1000 immediately to restore my car insurance, so if he loaned me the money he could hold the gun as collateral. I figured when I had the money I could buy it back, and even if he said he wanted to keep it, it would still be in the family and he could give it to my aunt if she tried it and liked it (in other words, if she tried it at all). I also clearly explained that while I'm only asking to borrow $1000 from you, its a $1200 gun + the mount/sight + all the extras and such I have for it, that I could easily get $1400-1600 for everything if I wanted to sell it online and never see it again. My last words when I left him for the gun were "Please don't do anything stupid and take it to a pawn shop or something, if you want your money back tell me and I will put it up for sale, so I can pay you back plus interest"

Well, without consulting me at all he brought it to the same gun store that took him for a ride on the glock. They saw the red dot sight, the pile of 30 round mags with it, and the hogue grip on it and asked him how much he paid for it, and he said "Uhhh $1000". So yea, they took him at $800 for it. It's hard to be mad at him when (besides the fact that I specifically told him not to do that) he really didn't know any better, and besides that he <profanity> himself out of $200 on the deal as well... Normally I would feel inclined to pay him back the money he lost in that deal, but really he <profanity> me out of more money doing it than he lost himself. I can't and wouldn't press charges on him, but now I know not to trust him with anything more valuable than a pencil. I kind of want to be an <profanity> and say next time you want to go to that gun store, just slow down and throw some $20's out the window on your way past, it will be cheaper than actually going in.

Can't? I still think you could since ownership was never transferred. But it is your call and no matter how wrong you are for not sticking it to him in some way :p there isn't anything we can do about it.


Except maybe flip you some grief over it :laugh: :p


And I could (& would) definitely be mad at someone for doing something like that - family or not.
As for the bank & insurance, anything to get more money right?

That is really unfortunate! Did he not understand what "loan" means or was this deliberate?

He is just not very bright, it wasn't malicious or anything. I asked for a loan from him and he helped me out, and he got took trying to bring the 5.7 to the gun store to see what it was worth.
