Well, long story on this one.
The short version is that Jake went above and beyond to make a deal right when the blame really laid w/ someone else.
For those who want some background:
Jacob tried his best to get Kris to come around, but it wasn't in the cards. Kris was just not a responsible person; I sincerely hope that no one ever trades with him again.
However, Jacob covered the barrel I was not given and ALL the costs to get the gun fixed by HK.
To me, this puts him in a class of traders nearly all by himself on the nation. Not only is he honest and trustworthy, but he's willing to go the extra mile to make sure that you are taken care of even if something goes bad.
A reminder, when you do trades, really look at the quality of the feedback. Is someone just having all their friends post lauditory comments? Is it mindless drivel like "A+++++++ trader dont ever hesitate with this man" and no details of the deal accompanying it?
Look for posts like mine that reveal the character of the trader, not just what their friends think of them. Kris had something like 35 positives....
Anyway, bottom line: A+++++++ trader dont ever hesitate with this man!
