I'm here to defend senior and to say that I was the one asking for a picture. Yes, I PM'd HUNTRESS asking if she still had a picture, and if so could she shoot it to my email. What I get is a beat down...rude, insulting, and just generally unfriendly is the vibe I got from her messages.
I'm not active on the fireline as much as I am on other firearms forums so maybe this is against the rules, but here are the PMs sent between myself and Huntress showing that I nicely (IMHO) asked for pictures and was then hammered for it.
Hey Huntress, I'm wondering if you still have pics of that XD9SC you sold. I'm looking to trade a XD9 Service for it because it didn't fit him.
I see your in Wyoming, Cheyenne? If so did you use a FFL in town to ship it, or did you ship it yourself?
I'm in Cheyenne and use Avenue Antiques for my transfers up from Colorado, but I have never had one shipped one to someone else.
It was sold a long time ago, sorry.
13 Days is a "long time ago"? Ok, at this point I'm thinking she is confused and thinks that I wanted to buy the firearm from her, so I send another clarifying that I knew it was sold, but the individual I was dealing with did not have pictures.
Yep, I know it was sold. I'm trading another pistol for it to the guy you sold it to down in Texas. He didn't have pictures, but said maybe you still did.
If you still have any pictures of it you can send them to [email protected]
No need to be like that, I was just asking if you still had pictures of it. No matter, both firearms are in the mail, I guess I'll just have to go on good faith that it is in decent shape.
Thanks anyway, and sorry for bugging you.
Very poor taste to ask the former owner for pics. You are not doing business with me, but with him. he should be the one to give the pics. Do you need a dollar to buy a clue? Oh, I forgot you're from Wyoming....clueless. If you didn't want to bug me, you wouldn't have sent another PM, Jerk.
Ok, this was my FIRST online firearms trade/sale/buy, so maybe I'm not up to speed on the “Etiquette” of online dealings, but I do not think asking a former owner if they still have pictures of a firearm that they had sold only 13 days earlier was in "poor taste". And the Wyoming thing; I'm not "from" Wyoming, I am Stationed in Wyoming due to the Military, but will likely retire next year and stay here. And saying people from Wyoming are "clueless" is kind of a silly thing for her to say since she is also from Wyoming. Being called a Jerk...my wife of 17 years says it all the time :)
So in defense of senior; not everybody has a digital camera and can post pics. He gave a nice review of HUNTRESS on his purchase of this particular firearm from her so I THOUGHT she would have been open to sending me a picture of it since he couldn't. I guess I thought wrong.
Oh well. Senior seems like a genuinely nice fella from my conversations with him on the phone. He was really quick on answering any emails I sent and was very fast on getting his pistol in the mail.
