I lost out
I'd been looking for a sale on Marlin 795s when a stainless steel version shows up on a local gun website. I post an "I'll take it!" Then look and look and look for a response. Then I head home, which takes a while. When I get there after dinner and putting the kids to bed I find I have two messages, one "Give me a call" and another "Sold pending ftf"
Dibs don't mean nothing.
