The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt.

Everyone please be careful when dealing with gun broker. I purchased a firearm on their site and got taken for a sizable amount. There excuse was and still is nothing. They even have a deductible. I still need them but if you buy anything on their site beware, You are putting your wallet and hard earned money at risk.
You don't need permissions thats just a default warning when you try to load the pictures here directly. You need to use a photo hosting site to host the pictures. I use a free site called Imgur. One way is to copy the "IMG" code to the body of your post then once the post is made the picture/s will show.

If one is selling firearms on this forum or other what works best for buyers sending payment to seller that is preferred/secure/safest?
Have sent money orders using Gunbroker but they can be kind of a hassle for the buyer and postal service adds delay. Guessing it is safe to tell buyers to send via PayPal or Venmo (never used)? Does PayPal have any limitations on sending funds for guns, not like they would know.

The condition of items for sale or trade should be described in an accurate and honest fashion. Problems and flaws worthy of note should not be concealed. A lie by omission is still a lie.
Parties to a transaction should agree on details of the transaction before money or merchandise changes hands.
Buyers should send payment promptly. To my mind, this means payment should be received by the seller within seven days after an agreement is struck, unless other arrangements have been made and agreed upon by both parties.
Sellers should ship merchandise promptly. To me, this means shipment within seven days after payment is received, unless other arrangements have been made and agreed upon by both parties.
Response to queries by the other party should be prompt. Responses to emails should be made within 24 hours, unless mitigating circumstances exist.
lbj and I expect everyone who uses this section to, quite simply, do the right thing, and I believe we all know what that is when it comes to matters where money and property are involved.
It is the policy of SIGforum to publish the names and addresses of those who do not fulfill their part of any agreement made between buyer and seller, as a warning to all members of the board. Needless to say, anyone who ends up like that in this forum will have their posting rights revoked.
Pay quickly, ship quickly, respond to emails quickly, be open and honest in your dealings here, or conduct your business elswhere.
