Important business tip... don't deliver goods until they are paid for.
If you accept installments .. you hold onto the article until all the payments are made.
It's foolish to offer credit to strangers when you don't have a clue if they have any ablility to pay.. which clearly this fellow did not.
Number one rule right there. If he wants to do installments, that's fine. But he gets the gun when it is fully paid off, no sooner.
Keep on his ass and get your money, and give him the gun. If thats the condition he is returning it in, that is the condition he is still committed to buying it in.
