Hows the safest and best way to trade pistols with someone online? Were both using FFL's. I just want to make sure he ships his after recieving mine.
I would see if the other guys FFL can confirm acceptance of the pistol. Otherwise I would not trade a firearms with a stranger on faith.Hows the safest and best way to trade pistols with someone online? Were both using FFL's. I just want to make sure he ships his after recieving mine.
Yep, that's the ONLY way I'd do it..!BeyondTheBox said:It's hard man. I was recently attempting to do this but the guy stopped communicating right when I was about to ship my end so I stopped in my tracks and decided against. I say don't do it man, based on my experience, but, if you must, Guage it by the other parties communication. Have your FFL help by communicating with this other person's FFL. They can coordinate shipping. Just drop guns of with them and have them wait until they revive tracking info or ship confirm from other end.
That's interesting. I never heard of that.danf_fl said:One option is to use a check as "good faith".
A check is written by one party (normally the one who started the deal). Send the check. Upon receipt, the firearm is sent to an FFL. After receipt of firearm. the other firearm is sent with the check back to originator.
