If you are willing to do a FTF in your state it would save potential buyers the hassle of trying to find an FFL to do a transfer. I would pay $50-$100 more for a firearm that I can check out before I buy and take home that day.

I tried to promote that idea of the sellers at least giving their general location when listing an item for sale, a couple years ago but it never got off the ground. Seems that most here on the Files do NOT want "someone" to be aware of their location even by showing what state they are located in. :rolleyes:
I am located in Colorado.:)

I moved to New Mexico about 4 months ago. I haven't had time to set up an FFL to do transfers for me. There have probably been guns posted for sale that I would have bought if I had know the seller was local to me. Just sayin.

Would be helpful to know the state. I am more likely to respond.

I don't believe you'd be expected to furnish your exact location with longitude and latitude, just the State ( and just the State info only if you really want to sell something on the Market Place):rolleyes:

Are you perhaps referring to that double negative (ain't - nobody) :biggrin:

Oops, here I thought it meant main like "main liner". Gotta be able to decode the cryptic stuff.:biggrin:
Can't ever be really sure of a FALers location by checking his "handle/name" - example, like English Mike's location especially since I thought he was located in Australia since he's so dang difficult to understand......:shades:

I'd much rather pay a little more for something I can see before buying, even if the seller still required an FFL for recordkeeping purposes. I like the idea of having the State listed.

This is the main reason for most of my gun related purchases being made at the various gun shows.
I want to see what the condition really is AND then be able to take it home with me without the wait and suspense to determine if it's really as advertised, that is IF I ever receive the item that was to be shipped.:smile:
