Whoa weird deal guess my deal to get this S&W MP AR just fell through. Read they following texts between me and the seller (nb4TL;DR):
Seller: For sure man and thank you too.
Me: See you at 11AM at Dick's parking lot.
(Several hours later)
Me: Hey sorry for the late text but just a thought:
Do you think it might be better to meet at a gun range?
I googled Gun Ranges in Tulsa and found:
2A Shooting Center at 4616 E Admiral right off of I244.
And they open right at 11am on Sundays so we can keep the same time.
Seller: Were you wanting to test the gun?
Me: Well if we are there yes I'd like to put one shot through it. Obviously I can do a function test on safety/trigger and make sure everything's smooth with the barrel, bolt carrier group, etc.
But also I was just thinking it might be safer for you and I both this day and age to do it in an indoor gun range as opposed to a broad daylight parking lot.
Seller: I'm going to pass. I have someone in tulsa and my part of town willing to purchase. Thanks though
Me: Definitely didn't mean for that to be a deal breaker and have funds ready to go to make this purchase and obviously highly interested.
Would it be okay if I called you?
And the guy "read" that last text (can tell via iMessage) and never responded.
I don't know if I genuinely just scared the guy or if I just saved myself from something super shady. What do you guys think?
