    I put an ar upper and lower up for sale on friday, didn't want to, had to. but put up for exactly what I had into the pair. and had alot of interest, 9 of you pm'd me. I pm'd back to all when and where I'd be available. but hadn't promised it to anyone in particular. and I sold it on sunday. for exactly what I asked. and mail off the money to the wifes doc yesturday. so if anyone thought I had promised them the pair, and "sold it out from under" them, I am sorry, I didn't mean to.
    thanks to everyone who contacted me.

    If I may offer a tip... always refrain from giving the impression that a deal has been struck until you're committed to a deal. Sounds obvious, but if you're not a big internet buyer/seller, it's one of those little nuances that can be overlooked. Once a deal has been struck, however, you're ethically obligated to follow through- even if you get offered more, after the fact.

    I have no idea what your situation was, just offering some unasked for advice, based on my own trials and errors in the past.

    If no deal was officially struck, those other guys can piss off.

    But why'd you start a thread to apologize to someone?

    just felt bad that somebody was ticked, got a bunch of pm's all imediately after putting up the post, had several of those that offered to buy. only struck a deal with the eventual buyer. he was the first to offer to buy at my price.
    and this is only the second thing i've sold. i'm more of a collector or pass em on to my boys guy.

    You don't need to apologize to anyone. It is your choice to make a deal with anyone you wish.

    So are you telling me that since I offered you a dollar first for your $1000 item, I have a righteous right to be angry when you sell it and don't give me a counter offer? Don't let people walk over you man. Put the person that got mad on a never sell-to list.

    I for one am extremely offended. Just give me the rest of your firearms and all will be forgiven. I'm just that kind of guy. ;)

    I have found that when selling anything, especially small dollar items, it is almost impossible to not 'offend' someone. You get tons of BS emails/PMs and inquiries. It is impossible to keep it all coordinated unless you have a secretary on staff. Rarely does anyone ever just say I'll take for this much, I can meet here, etc. It is always conditional or I really want your holster, etc, how about it? Selling sucks.

    It is a reminder to only buy things you really are sure you want to keep for the long haul.

    That says to me you priced the items a tad low perhaps, live and learn.


    First to say I'll take it at your price is the winner, easy.
