Unless the story and apology is also a con.

Jim

I think we can bet on it.  A con is gona con and this one can't even keep his story straight, which is standard for that type.

First, Ol Sourdough and then Bruce, really did count coup on mr. snake.  Very satisfying!  Good work, men.

Very good work Bruce.  You took this guy out.  Like most fraudsters this one was only too willing to admit his ďmistakeĒ and express surprise and characterize himself as the Ďvictimí of (in this case) his local antique shop.  Then they move on to their next pidgin. 

2rattlesnakes is a PAB (punk assed bitch) and you did him a job.  Good work!

Iíve known boyfriend jail break attempt cases where the loyal girlfriend tries to bring in a full size 1911 stashed in the same (implied) anatomical area.  Thatís devotion for ya, and crack (no pun intended, really).

Looks like an old 44 "Navy"

Looks like a POS.

The seller has an apt and fitting handle:    2rattlesnakes

Such a deal!

That add constitutes accessory to fraud.  Iíve argued that these auction houses should know better.  Never mind that; they do know better.  I am beginning to believe that they jus hoís

I think it would be unrealistic to expect the auction site to monitor the thousands of guns offered, much less be knowledgeable of all the subtle variations. 

I suppose you're right about that.  Their job is to move merch and not run a gun school or teach a history class.

I have no affiliation with the sellers.

Jim

No shame there; your honorable reputation remains intact.

Am I being overly critical again or is it too much to expect the people at GunBroker to know the difference between an 1851 Colt and a Griswold & Gunnison?  Weíre all used to newbs getting the nomenclature a little mixed up and thatís OK and natural, no big - but an auction house like GB really should know better.  I call it slakiní.

Seems like the box, paperwork and a durn sticker are half the draw on that 51 Navy nťe Griswold.

This may be heretical and a minority position of one - but solely from an esthetic perspective, the back straps on the 3d Gen Signature Series seem to be an unfortunate distraction and a bad idea.

...  up in the morning down at night ......"whoop to friggin do"

Hewy nailed it.  See, there are some perfectly normal people here in Calistan after all.  Not all Calidogs are spergy orbiters and Hewy has proven it.  Why, Iíll bet thereís a good 500 people here of his very same persuasion.  Smoke that!

Thanks Hewy, I was beginning to wonder. )lI

Hope this one won't piss off the Indians.

That steel hog is just the thing.  I donít think any indigenes will mind you shooting at that.  Shooting at that albino buff is another matter though, especially if yer wearing a Cleveland baseball hat at the time.

I can see one of those big steel hogs in my tea leaves and may need to get one for here pretty soon.  When they get shot my big coffee cans donít make near enough noise to suit me.

I very much like those piano keys in the advertisement.  Not expensive and ship free.

Enjoy that hog.

California, here.  An eclipse seems like a straight forward astrological event and of some interest.  But here, for many, it has been turned into everything from the Second Coming to the end of the world. 

C.W. Previte-Orton was referring to Medieval Europe in the line below, but he could just as well have been writing of now -
         
                ďIt was an age of signs and wonders, of emotional credulity and vulgar magic.Ē

I dislike that High Standard logo emblazoned on the breach area like a durn marquee.  Those D-guard Bowies are cool though, except that when I buy a gun Iím not necessarily looking for a knife.

A serious question:  Why would anyone spend $300.00 + for that?  I suppose there is some mysterious element concerning the collecting of elderly reproductions that Iím missing.

Iíd sure rather have my spanky new Pietta G&G purchased from EMF in April 2017 for two bills than the one pictured there at GB for three.

I hate those reviews by people that haven't even shot the gun yet but are still saying how great it is and giving it 5 stars.

A lot of those reviews are overly effusive and gushing, as if the guys were paid to post them. 

Iím very reluctant, almost unwilling, to buy anything that canít be returned.

From 1996 to present I have purchased 8 pistols from Cabelaís (just to pick a vendor).  Of these, one was returned once and 3 guns twice for 7 returns on 4 guns. Eventually I was in possession of good ones, all.  Canít start putting up with shoddy goods.  Being assertive in these matters is sometimes necessary and pays off in the end.  So, as to Cabelaís Ė Iím a reservedly happy customer, but it took some doing.  So much for "consumer confidence".

I am so disappointed in Hewy.  ;)

Yep, ol Hewy's a deplorable - irredeemable too.


Iím partial to Colts
Yet I do love a Rem;
Now if thatís schizophrenic
Then I guess I just am.
