Talking Just got my first FAL, great kit!

Hi all, I just got home from the gun shop today and picked up my kit from Pureveggie. It was as described and in great shape. He was a great guy to work with regarding shipment and payment. In a field where there seems to be some great guys and some not so great guys I just wanted to let everyone know that he's one of the good guys. My gunsmith was as excited as I was! Thanks!
This is my first post so I hope I put it in the right place.

I’m confused. Wouldn’t his first post have been the “I’ll take it”? That should make this post his second post.....but it’s his first. No matter, RSS will be along shortly to call us all fags & nancies and get right to the truth of it all.

Why are LJ and HVT trolling pureveggie's sale thread this morning?

Distinguished member Marshall says pureveggie is a great guy to deal with!

Pureveggie got caught in lies and decided to pun and deleted his post and start over..

Veggie claims his receiver is new and Lockjaw shows its a negative positive...

pureveggie posted a DSA type III as new, never been built. Ironic that pureveggie recently bought a DSA type III from brunop that was removed from a previous build and had brass kisses.

pureveggie also posted that pix and other information was available by e-mail.

Hvt98 asked why pureveggie doesn't just post the pix and serial number.

pureveggie retorted with the typical "everyone is picking on me" whine fest and how he is only here to serve the FALfiles community out of the kindness of his own heart.

I posted a link to brunop's marketplace add, complete with pix, and asked if this was the same receiver. pureveggie replied it was, thanked me for posting and suggested that I was trying to be his buddy or some bullshit. pureveggie continued on by stating that he was only selling the receiver for the price paid... strange enough, brunop sold the receiver for $675, and pureveggie was asking $850.

From there pureveggie started to figure out that the gig was up and repeatedly attempted to update his posts.... once pureveggie realized that his ship had officially sunk, he deleted and reposted.

I have been contacted by at a handful of new guys inquiring about pureveggie after reading the feedback I left for him.

Their opinion was that pureveggie was both extremely pushy and "all over the place." pureveggie was selling kits and/or barrels, for inflated prices, stating that they were top shelf ect and better than anything in marketplace. pureveggie also likes to state that many other folks are bad people trying to rip others off, but he is just a nice guy trying to help out another hobbyist.

I have also interacted with numerous FALfilers who are keen to, or out right repulsed by pureveggie's antics, including some reputable members... but for whatever reason, nobody calls a spade a spade.

That's cool. I'll be the bad guy. At this point, I don't give a shit. I cannot post a solid honest WTS add for a reasonable price without someone bitching and whining, while fucktards like pureveggie and a couple other play the community at will (hell, it seems that some folks embrace it). Moderation is far from impartial or consistent. I should find better things to do with my time.

Ah! There it is.
This is important stuff and should not be swept under the rug.

I've had at least four smooth transaction with pureveggie in the past two months. In my experience he's been a great guy to work with.


YMMV

The thread, yes. The receiver sale and it's subsequent relisting under bogus description is recent.

Well, Lockjaw’s been around awhile and as far as I’m concerned, his word’s gold to me.

The rest of you guys are as twisted as I am. Pure Cucumber...

I have no dog in this fight but I have to agree with you.

Any guy who has a 99%+ feedback rating over several dozen transactions is probably an okay dude.

I think most of us take pride in our Feedback Rating. My goal is always 100% on both sides.
