    Gunz R Uzz is easy.

    WTB: Give me a great deal.
    NIB: Put back in the original box.
    FS: Never worked for me.
    SBT: I sold or lost the OU part of the combo.
    Combo: Sometimes shoots good, sometimes shoots bad.

    It is all very objective and empirical.

    Oh, and "shoots good" means the seller didn't do well in high school English. But it likely means gun is reliable.

    LOL on the "test fired only." Yeah, sure, but where and how was it "test fired"?

    I never understood, however, "comes up good"...does that shooter mean a fish he or she has hooked, the sun, or a rising fastball, a corpse dumped at sea, (if spoken by a known "hit" man or woman), or lack of high school English?

    "Comes up good"

    Sounds like a really bad pick up line at a bar!

    No, the best pick up line for a guy to use in a bar is "I'm not really this tall....I'm sitting on my wallet."
