    My ad was changed to sold and I am locked out from bumping or commenting. A member said I will take it but as it turns out it’s for a friend of his who may not have the ability to use my method of Payment (PayPal). So it was posted prematurely and now the ad is closed??? Others have expressed interest but believe it’s sold. It’s not as of this morning.

    How can the ad be reopened.

    Thank you

    Greg, I said I’ll take it. I’ll take it. I have the means to pay for it even if my friend isn’t super tech smart. Please don’t worry about it.

    I appreciate the clarification. I wasn’t sure from your last message and didn’t want to miss other buyers. Thanks again.

    Greg, a word to the wise.....PayPal is the LAST way you want to sell ANYTHING firearm related. If they figure out it's for something like that, they'll not only shut your account down, but they'll make it danged near impossible to get your funds - you certainly won't get them in a timely manner.

    Thus far I have no issues. I prefer Venmo or Zelle but many don’t use these. What other alternatives have you found are good?

    I pay with personal check most times and it always works out but I trust the longtime members I’m dealing with. I wouldn’t send a check to a “new” member.

    Just what I told you - USPS money order. I cash them at the PO, then arrange shipping. Google paypal guns and see for yourself - it's BEEN an issue for years.

    Once someone posts an "I'll take it", it's considered sold. If they back out, that's a different issue. If you need ad's reopened or closed, contact a moderator.

    My PO seldom has more than 50 bucks in the till. Even the bigger ones don’t have more than a few hundred. Gotta take em to the bank. Bank cashiers checks or money orders are an option. Usually you can call and verify it’s good.

    Forgot Walmart MO. Those asshats cut a percentage out just to cash them.

    I've seen "verified" bank MO's turn out to be forged. Just tell your PO that they need to be prepared to cash it. I dislike taking it through my bank because it gives the PO an "out" to decide there's something wrong with the MO. They don't like it, but I insist on it, so they do it.

    I had the PO tell me to come back in a few hours and they would see if they could cash it. It was for a grand I think. I called and complained to a manager because, like Redneck, if they can take my money to issue one, they can open their safe to cash one, anytime during normal business hours. I do consider them good payment.

    They are not going to know unless someone "rats" you out.
