I might be to trusting but if they steal from me than thats something they will have to live with.

All in all the shooting world is rather honest.

The short answer as to why it is usually done that way is that the seller can't get his merchandise back if the check/money order never arrives or if the check is bad.

I have done a lot of transactions on the internet on various boards over the years since the boards started up. I have only been burned once......and that was when I shipped the item before I received the payment. It was a board member who, up until that time, had a good reputation. I just wrote it off and moved on. I still deal with folks on the boards on a regular basis.

You have to trust your instincts. If I am very comfortable with the deal I will frequently ship simultaneously.

There is room for all of God's creatures.....right next to the mashed potatoes.

Hope I'm sending this to the right member, this is my first attempt at navigating this site. You have a picture of the 7mm AM, how much does it weigh, barrel length etc. I'm currently using a 270 and would like purchase a magnum cal. How do you like the 7mm AM

Usually people are honest for the most part but I sent a guy some 10 gauge hulls for some 22-250 brass and bullets at the same time I sent another group of hulls to another guy for some 300 ultra mag and bullets. I got the items from the guy with the 300 stuff but never saw the stuff from the guy with the 22-250 stuff.This is my first burning also out of many deals .So for the most part I would say people are honest.
