Files member RPU

So here's a piece of work.

Guy wanted my last two new in box Aussie bolts. Wanted to verify that they had crossed flag proofs. After three phone calls, a slew of emails, a thread I started FOR HIM to discuss the nature of the crossed flags, offers to include extras, an attempt at negotiating a lower price when there were already freebies being included, and finally a last minute unwillingness to use my preferred method of payment, I decided to simply withdraw them from the market.

Here is how that went.




I have since blocked him. Sellers beware, he will insist on phone calls to discuss details, and speak at length about his time collecting, his knowledge of FAL rifle history, his close ties to John Bush, and anything related that may be deemed impressive. I determined him to be a snooty, entitled tire kicker.

Don't give me grief about the PayPal either. 🙄 I wanted to use it so I could have funds available immediately to buy some of that loot ScottV2 is selling over the weekend. Credit card processing would take a few days to be available.

Sounds like my experience with another certain member here. Hey Adam, could you PM me please? Got a question for you.

I hate selling anything. You just can't please some people, unless you send it to them free, overnight shipping. I had some new bullet molds for sale and had two guys that wanted to give me half price, and me pay shipping. I asked one of them if he wanted me to pay him to take the thing off my hands. LOL.

The molds went back on my shelf. Not selling a $100 mold for $45.

Bet someone will be peddling 2cc tubs of authentic Rhodesian bunghole grease (authentic babypoop color, of course) over in the Marketplace in 3, 2, ...

Issued in 1978, in lieu of saving that last round for yourself.

Before or after the custom refinish ?

Thanks for the heads up, Adam. Sounds like exactly the kind of spoiled millenial I don't want to ever deal with.

Here is what I've noticed.
Seems like a lot of guys are new, as in" member since 2016" new. Seems like alot of them have brought over the AR15.com mentality with them.
I'm glad the FAL is finding new admirers, but...

Sorry that you had to deal with this Adam.

RPU just sent a PM asking me to sell one one of my FAL rifles to him.

Interesting that he states that he is in Chicago? Um... no........ two strikes, not interested in being the guy who gives him a third.

Just to let everyone know, I am not one of the idiots ; but I am a FAL admirer. My bank account and a few FAL Filers can attest to that.

Seems to be a lot of this type of crap happening here lately, I just ran into the same type of thing.

First time it's happened in a long time.
