    I've sold a few items at TS.com and on Gunbroker and I always sem to forget some detail or another in my post. That begins a series of back-and-forth emails. I think we all do that. What seems obvious to a seller isn't always clear to a potential buyer. I'm not trying to be critical, but offer a suggestion to sellers. What would you think of using a template or form for information? A seller could answer a somewhat standard list of questions about the item. Once. Buyers would be in a much better position to assess whether they want to proceed without submitting detail questions and awaiting answers. Here are the details that seem to be asked most often on guns for sale.

    I'll be selling a couple of 1100s and I plan to use this kind of list to make sure I present as good a picture as I can.

    What do you think?

    New or Used

    Manufacturer

    Model

    Gauge

    Length of shells

    Serial number or date of manufacture

    Length of barrel(s)

    Over, Under, O/U

    Bore

    Chokes

    Porting

    Rib

    POI

    LOP

    Pull or Release

    Stock

    Drop at comb

    Drop at heel

    Cast

    Palm swell

    Recoil pad

    Case

    Asking price

    Shipping

    Special features

    PICTURES, PICTURES, PICTURES

    Miscellaneous information

    Where do you live and can I come to your house to look at your gun? Can I bring some cash money? That is what I want to hear.
