    I just wanted to warn you guys before you deal with Jack aka M1A. I opened the 870 TC Trap I got from Jack and it was way nicer than he described, the pictures did not do that gun justice. The guy at the FFL Dealer called me to tell me it was in and said it was the nicest wood he had seen in a long time. He also said whoever sent it to me took great care to make sure it got here OK. I have had a couple of dealings with Jack and he is one of the nicest I have dealt with and about as stand up of a guy as you can find.

    Jack the 870 is awesome and I shot a 42 out of 50 the first time out. I also got a lot of compliments on the gun which looks like a million bucks. We hear so much negative about internet dealings I just felt like I should let you know of a very positive one. Jack if you ever need a reference let me know and thanks again for the great deal.

    I'm selling MIA a trap gun and hopefully a few other as well. I sure hope he will be able to say the same things about me!

    I am a Green Bay Packers fan so I think Jack would be ok with that.

    Well, there is a secret here I will share..

    1)I buy good guns and the best go into my personal stash of "play guns"

    2) When I decide to sell one, the guy that gets the gun receives quality beyond the norm.

    This gun fell into that category. It would not have been for sale had not the flood been on the horizon. But the flood did not materialize as the huge snowmelt was slow and not accompanied by any significant rains. So I got lucky withe the flood and Jim got lucky with a top of the heap gun. I probably would not have sold it when I saw that the river would not become a 100 year flood, but I thought a favor would be in order for Jim.

    But Jim (et al)... Get over it, I am a BEARS fan.

    (from Chicago) and Southern Wisconsin

    AND the a--h--- is a stickler for detail. If he forgets to put something in the box (like a priceless choke tube wrench or something) he'll send another package WITHOUT LETTING YOU ASK about it! I don't know what we can do about somebody like that.
