I understand why, I think, that happens.
It's meant as a general guideline.
Like why pot is illegal, but police don't continually bust people for it unless they're blatantly disregarding the law for the sake of being some hardass or just to be rebellious.
If someone does it on their property or somewhere out of the way in public, police tend to brush it off even though it's their occupation to apprehend.
Why? They can understand that the person has the right idea and going through the hassle to ruin what could be a potentially solid citizen is just not worth it.
Secondly (which should have been firstly): on what you said about "your feelings over the situation", that's also fair. It's not like you've lived with me and know the kind of person I am.
I'm a ******* on skype and I'm sure that doesn't help my case.
Nor having the gun you want in my hands
I tend to be as honest as possible and will do anything I can to keep anyone I do business with content and feeling safe about the transaction. During and after.
That's why I offer returns on guns of value like the Cobra G7. If they think that they may have been gypped, it will hurt me a bit of course, but I will allow them to reclaim what was previously theirs.
I mean, if they happen to not like it just for what it is, I can't do that. I will help them resell, but I won't do some sort of "test run on credit" shenaniganry.
So far, everyone who I've dealt with has been totally honest about it and only once have I had to return the gun, which was actually his fault in the end because he took a knife to the box and cut the ASA oring by chance, making it leak on airup.
It was a really nicely built lotus, but the kid was 14 and clueless, so whatever.
