    Default Don't know where to post this so I started here

    Was contacted by a seller in reference to a WTB ad I posted on Armslist ( ya I know, I'm deperate). I told him since he is not in my state that I will only deal with a FFL. He then gave me his FFL's phone number. I called several times and got no answer.

    Then I tell the seller that his FFL isn't answering his phone. He tells me that he will get a hold of him and have him contact me.

    Then I was contacted (by text message) " Hello, Mr. Seller brought your order to our firearms store which is a (pistol that I am looking for). It is in good condition. Also he said you would be making payment to me so I can ship it out to you.

    My question is this. How can I verify that this "FFL" guy who texted me is legit?

    Thanks an advance
    ROCK OUT WITH YOUR KOCH OUT!!
    SEMPER FI Marines!

    Not sure how this is HK related, BUT personally I wouldn't do the deal. Sounds too sketchy to me.

    Ask him to send a photo or copy of his FFL license. Should be easy enough to verify with ATF.
    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    Didn't know where else to post this. There isn't a general questions thread.

    Thanks, didn't know. I've never bought anything out of state from a private party before so this is all new to me.

    Also, shout out to our Admin straightgrain. He's been a big help with this also.

    Tell him to take it to an FFL dealer that’s has a brick and mortar store and a website. Tell him you will call the number on the website and make arrangements to pay and ship. It may cost you a little more. But you will get your pistol.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking. I don't mind paying more in fees for a hard to find pistol and peace of mind.
    Funny though. After I told the FFL to send me a copy of his license and after I verify through the ATF he hasn't responded.

    I hate people. Present company excluded. Don't know ya yet. Ha!

    I agree 100%. I hate dishonest people.
    Post what you are looking for in the WTB section here. Someone probably has it and may want to sell it to finance there next HK purchase.

    Good luck.

    Yeah I already posted the WTB. Would much rather find it here. Freaking USP compact or P2000's .357 Sig barrels or the whole pistol is apparently hard to find recently.
