Sounds to me that the post office should be liable not the seller, unless of course there wasn't any insurance put on the package. If thats the case (no insurance) then it sounds like all was going along fine until he stopped communicating with you, either that or he lied about sending the bullets out. Although shite does sometimes happen, the bullets could of been mailed out 3 weeks ago and being this close to Christmas they've just not arrived yet.............Nah.........not likely....... hang the bloody thief!!!
Just kidding......IMO there's no excuse for not communicating with a guy. Yes, a guy can be broke and need to wait for a check or funds to come in, and thats all understandable, but it doesn't cost anything to PM a guy and explain whats going on. If he has been online, and on this site posting, and won't return a PM............well, I say its time to HANG EM' !!!!!! Somebody get the pitchforks, I'll get some torches. ;^)
Were the bullets lost in shipping? If so, is this the responsibility of the sender? Not stirring the pot. I don't know. Would it be fair to split the cost of a new batch bullets? If this guy sent an empty box of bullets, out the rat.
I see what you are saying, but the way I feel is it is my responsibility to make sure the money got to him. If it was lost on the way to him I would be out. So I feel that makes it his responsibility to make sure the bullets get to me.
Ok here is how I understand it. Posts/emails can be hard to understand at times.
The guy sent you some stuff after he received your money. It was not in the box when you got it. Maybe it did come out of the box during shipping. If I was him I would say I sent them to you and I did a good job packing them and there is no reason you should have an empty box. I would think that you were trying to pull something over on me.
This guy did not seem to say that. After filing a complaint with the PO time went by. He offered to give you something else for the money. If I sent you something I would not offer you anything in exchange because I ALREADY sent you something. This guy offered you something (my guess) is because he sent you an empty box in the first place. Not cool.
Give him one more chance and then I would out the rat!!!!!!!
The way I see it, if I was going to screw someone around, not that I ever would, it wouldn't be for $39 less freight. Do you realize how many times you would have to do this to be able to buy just one of the average rifles from this sight?
I do not understand the offer on the scope though. I do not like in any way shape or form a thief. I am not understanding the seller on this one
His statistics show him being on here yesterday so there is no excuse for not answering you PM's.
This is exactly why I wanted to post what was happening, Like I said it was only $39 but the fact that he would not let me know what was going on when I knew he was getting on and off and even making post while not responding to me is what was making me mad. Heck if he would have been honest if something was going on out of his control and said Hey JC there are a lot of things going on right now and if and when I get the money I will send it to you. I would have been fine, but I fugured if he would do this with $39 whats to say he wouldnt do it with say something a little more pricey to someone else.

I didnt want to believe this was what happened at first, but I have wondered.
I can assure everyone I didn't send terrier72 an empty box. This has been the 1 and only problem I've had with a package not making it with the contents in place. I believe the bullets were stolen if they somehow fell out of the package.
This was a deal for my dads bullets, I was just being the middleman. I sent the bullets the same day or maybe 1 day after terrier sent the money, I still have the receipt to prove it. No insurance was put on the package as I never have before and trusted the PO to do there job and like I said, I've had no problems before with packages not making it with the contents.
I received the money, gave it to my dad and he went and bought other bullets with it the day I gave it to him. When terrier72 said he recieved the package with no bullets I told my dad. He was not happy to say the least witht the PO and said he didn't ahve the $39 to re pay. He also doesn't really trust people on the net and said what if he actually did receive the bullets and is trying to get bullets and the money?? I said that usually doesn't happen around the places I hang out on. Anyways, he offered a winchester 4-16x40 scope on HIS part to try and make it right for not having the $39. I told my dad to forget it because the scope is worth more then $39 and I would take care of it. I said I would cover the $39. Terrier72 said he would take some bullets on trade instead, so I agreed to send the bullets and just haven't communicated with him or sent the bullets off yet.
What it boils down to I guess is I have been lazy with communication and I haven't had the money to make it right.
I'll get the bullets out tomorrow afternoon.
Sorry for the inconvienience on my part to everyone and inparticularly terrier72.
