    I wanted to take a moment to let people here know about a very positive buying experience I had with one of our members. I recently purchased a Citori Plus Combo from Enduro. I expressed an interest in the gun after seeing it offered for sale on TS.com and offered a deposit. He refused and said it was on hold for me without the need of a deposit. I was to be in the metropolitan Atlanta area on vacation and he was willing to make the 550 mile round trip over from Savannah just to show me the gun. If I was happy with what I saw, we would complete the sale. One thing led to another and business took him in another direction and required the cancellation of our Georgia meeting. After returning home, we reconnected via phone and he sent me the gun to view and upon my approval, send him the funds. Needless to say, the gun arrived yesterday (oh by the way, shipped out at his expense no less!)in overall better condition than what was described and funds are going out today. We hear about so many bad gun deal experiences on here that I just wanted to share a positive one. If there is ever a gun offered up for sale from this man, you won't go wrong in dealing with him. Thanks again Enduro!

    I too have had a positive experience purchasing a shotgun via this venue....

    Calvin was in Texas....he had a 11-87 I wanted. He sent the gun, I sent the check and the two probably crossed paths enroute. The gun arrived and was as Calvin stated. An honorable gentleman!

    All's well when dealing in truth and honor!!!

    my guy said he would send the check when I sent the gun, but he chickened out. He took it to the range and shot it first. Then praised me for telling the truth about it. Got the $$$ later. Oh well it worked

    While not purchasing a firearm, I have bought a gun case and miscellaneous accessories-type items. Just a week or so ago, I sent some Blue Magic Hulls down south to one of our guys who wanted some and we agreed to just covering my shipping expenses.

    I have been fortunate to never having any issues and meeting some nice folks through this site...

    Thanks GoldEx for starting the positive post. I would like to share my positive gun dealings on TS.com as well. I recently purchased an 1100 from SirMissAlot. The gun was as he stated in the post. The deal was done easily and in a timely matter(Thanks again Jim). First time buying a gun off the 'net. Jonathan Taylor. P.S. Thanks to Gene and StevelCt for the 1100 tips, hope to try 'er out this weekend.
