I agree with this statement.

I would ask the guy for documentation that he legally acquired and owns it and see how his reaction is, that's usually the tell tale sign.

Ask him for the receipt from when he bought it, or arrange to do the transfer in a public place- the MP station on post, or State Police/ County Sheriff's office. If he geeks, you've got your answer.

Why would anyone ever buy a sight that's ten times more expensive than their gun?

Even better idea right here, if the numskull did "acquire" it what kind of penalty could he be facing? If you can tell us.

don foget the batfe often trolls for people with stuff like that to bait you into doing something illegal. since the batfe serves no purpose other than to violate the constitution they make up sting operations to entrap people.

think fast and furious

I would also ask how much use will you get out of it compared to your jeep???

I would love to have one, but an item that expensive that is "just for fun" and has no practical use is in the old "if i win the lottery" category.
