Topic: Rate your experience with seller or buyer
Posted: 16 Aug 2007 at 9:34pm
Rate your experience with a seller or buyer here. This is meant for those that buy and sell on this particular (Japanese) site or for those who frequent this site as a poster but who may not explicitly place an add on this site but who may buy and sell with other Japanese collectors who are frequent posters here:
A few rules:
1. Rate your PERSONAL experience only! If your buddy was ripped on a deal or you heard about it at a show, don't include your comments here!
2. Don't go into a prolonged rant mode...paragraph after paragraph of the same rant. Keep your comments fairly short.

I'll see how this goes. If it doesn't work out or if the gunboards owner doesn't like it being here, I may change it. Thanks for your support!

Rick Veal is an excellent person to deal with. Absolute straight-shooter with his WTS item and turns out to be better than anticipated. Quick action on shipping, trustworthy "return-if-not-satisfied" offer, and all in all a most pleasant person to deal and converse with.

Jimsgunshop unfortunately not a straightshooter. Advertises a T-10 flaregun and I am the first responder but reply was a "i was offered $500 but im not sure that's a fair offer". Strange reply to a response against a WTS ad, so asks him if he want's to sell the item or not, and reply is "it still for sale $500 is my best offer so far let me know", I offer a price just above this "offer he got from somewhere", and final reponse is "ive d ecided to list this on gunbroker.com it should list in a about 3-4 das if your intertesred i would sign up on that site as a buyer".
So I end up with a total waste of time communicating with jimsgunshop in addition to the insult of having him suggest me to sign up for an auction and do better there. Either too much second thoughts with this guy or he is just trying to fish for best offers. Should not be placing WTS ads on this board. Unrecommendable.
