How your video should be when you unpack a gun during a trade..

I see on theft report about guns being shipped wrong. I recently played as a 3rd party for two guys and this video is a great reason why you should film you opening the box.

that is an excellent video, and an excellent example of terrible packing.
I can't comment on the condition of the ego, since I have no idea what was stated (though I assume the leak is not expected)

I have been making unpacking video on all items I bought from individuals online for at least a year now.

When I am the buyer I always video tape me opening the box.

When I am the seller I always sign the packaging tape usually on the edges/corners.
1. The buyer knows the box has not been tampered with before he got it.
2. The buyer can't open the box and re tape it back up and do a "unboxing" video.

thats a great idea, i'm going to start doing that. After one incident in a bad trade. I video EVERYTHING. Even to the point where one big trade, i videoed me, packaging the video and taping the box up, and actually mailing.

I too have started filming all of my unboxings in the past year or so. It's unfortunate that you can't trust people anymore, but it has to be done in order to protect yourself.

This is an excellent idea. I use little 'x's when I'm sending important documents in envelopes, but a signature is definitely harder to replicate if it is indeed opened.

I expected that was the case, but I didn't catch it if you stated it in the video.

I like the idea of signing on the tape.

looking back on the OP, I would try to zoom in on the address label/conf # just for completeness.

^^This. In my unpacking video I include a focused close-up shot of the address label, UPC bar codes, and edges of the package. I also include a close-up shot of any and all defect/scratch/nicks/wear/tear. I take my video on a clean table with no clutter and with as bright lighting as possible to make sure everything is clearly visible. the lighting makes the biggest difference in making a clear video. Sunlight gives you much brighter lighting compared to just about any artificial indoor lighting-unless you have a photo studio.

I make a pre-packing video on items I'm shipping. It includes a sheet of paper with the BUYER's username, item shipped, and that day's date being always visible in the background. Included are shots of all items packed (e.g. barrel set, oil, Allen keys, etc.). In the video I also would air-up the gun, turn on the gun and show the display, do dry shots, and do several actual shots with chrono. I run the camera close to the ASA, fittings, macroline, reg, body, and bolt to "kinda" show that there's no leaking sound. I would be talking during (almost) the entire video, partly as a proof that I didn't turn down the volume to hide leaking sound.

Love your video, I have been doing this for a while now with items. So what happens now, as the third party do you ship the gun to the final recipient aware of the issues, do you hold both guns until the issue is fixed? What is your next step as the third party shipper?

In this particular situation, I let the 2 parties sort it out. I am simply the middle man to make sure nobody is scammed.

I'm going to start doing this aswell. on the other side of the coin, could do a boxing video(test it, show it being packaged).

also what do you do in the situation of being a 3rd party and there is and issue? do you hold the guns till both parties have an agreement of what should happen next?
