    Reference recent add by Ron Simpkins for a Ruger 10-22. My own opinion of this type of selling on this site is negative. There is NO WAY to know what is really going on and who knows when it will end.

    In the future it may help if these types of listings were reported prior to the sale.

    I also tried contacting Mr Simpkins repeatedly over a 2 day period (he was shown to be on line acouple of times) Gave him an offer of 175.oo. He never responded to any messages from me.Seems he did not respond to alot of members messages.
    Thought when items were listed as want to sell they were REQUIRED to have a price. This was just really very INCONSIDERATE,BAD Manners and a waste of alot of peoples time!!! Maybe a bad feed back rateing is deserved

    If you didn't have a completed transaction with him you cannot leave poor feedback. He didn't set it up to be like an auction anyway, just left price out and then didn't get back to PMs. I am ticked my beer offer didn't tip the scales though. :)

    Auction style classified ads are definitely against the rules. If you guys see an ad that is conducted like an auction or a link to auction please report it and we will contact the member to change it or we will delete it.
