    ...your 'tactical' Hi-Point isn't drawing any straight-across trade requests for a Sig P226.

    Or... Your gun that you have listed can be had brand new from Cabelas for $100 less even though yours is a safe queen and only has had 1000 rounds down the pipe and has minor surface rust and a few dings from riding in the bed of your pick up truck.

    Or if after a week of posting your 686 or Sig p220 (hypothetically), some other guy posts his own that's in as good or better condition and at a lower price because he really needs the cash...

    OR . . . OR . . . OR . . . Perhaps the seller has "promised" his wife he will "try" to sell the item.
    As in: "I put it up for sale but I got no takers!" Mission accomplished.

    You use the words "rare", "banned", "pre-ban", "tactical" and "custom" in your ad.

    Yes I am looking for a rare pre ban SKS tactical safe queen with a 75 round drum only fired to zero the rifle if you see one let me know. I would be willing to trade some rare 22 lr ammo for it. I would like to state for the record that I am not really looking for one and I do not have any 22 ammo.

    If you get twelve offers on your "package deal" (firearm, fifteen mags, nine kinds of bling) and they are all for just the "included" ammo.
