If they got insulted then fine, but that sure wouldn't be my intent.
That being said I do not know anyone on this site and just handing over a gun to someone in good faith with out any kind of accountability would not sit well with me.
You gotta look out for number one right?
What if the person you are trusting to transport your gun for you just vanishes never to be heard from again? Then you'd be out a gun AND you would have to refund the buyers money.
I'm just sayin, you have to look at it from all angles. I'm very trusting of people I know but would you trust someone you've never met to move your gun for you on the honor system?
However, if you know them then I say go for it.
Im just playin devils advocate here, tryin to help people see the potential flaws in dealing with strangers.
Just my opinion
Guys. The sale and actual details are worked out between the seller and buyer. Usually it is the buyer that will contact
you. The parties exchange mobile / home phone numbers, where, date, day and time to meet. I have never heard of
anyone that is volunteering to transport ripping anyone else off. Everything is done FTF. Seller hands the goods over to
the transport FTF. You think he's questionable? Write down his license plate number etc. Though it's really not necessary
as the money has already been paid to you. The delivery is between the buyer and the transporter. I've shipped guns, ammo,
holsters etc... and received knives and ammo over the last couple of years using this method and have had 0 problems.
Usually the buyer buys the transporter a cup of coffee if they have time.....otherwise it's "thanks a lot and see you later".
I've found that the day of scheduled delivery, several calls are made between the transporter and the buyer to finalize exact
times (sometimes traffic problems etc). Again it serves it's purpose well. The last items I received via this method was 800
rounds of .45acp. The transporter also had a 5hp upright compressor in the back of his truck that he was delivering to a friend in
east Tx. He was making a trip to east Tx for medical testing.... he just happened to not mind carrying the ammo and compressor.
Turned out to be a great guy. We had about a 45min chat regarding hunting etc.
I probably would not ship with someone who had not been around the forum for awhile. That said, my offer still stands. You work out
a deal on something off this board, and need it to go from Dallas to Austin June 13th..... send me a PM and we'll see if we can't
work you out some free shipping!

TxCHLForum Express???

Mod's....not really sure if this is the right section for this....please move if needed.
Scanning through the "Pay It Forward" thread prompted me to post the following.

One of the other sites I visit has a "Forum Express". It's a free service between members.
Basically, if you buy or sell an item, you post you need Express service from Waco to Dallas
or El Paso to Ft Worth etc. Or offer that you're traveling and in what direction.
If another member is traveling to that destination or direction
they'll take your bought or sold item for free.... as a courtesy. I have bought and sold various
items, shipped them courtesy of the Forum Express, and never had any problems whatsoever.
I've also met several really nice folks in the process. It is not a service for "hitch-hikers" so don't
even go there..... just a friendly, free, delivery service among the hunting, fishing, sportsmen.

What do you guys think?

I'll be heading Dallas to Austin June 13th. So, if you buy or sell something off TxCHL Forum, and need
me to take it to Austin during that time frame, PM me and we'll work out the details.
