He has nothing to pay for... you gave him his money back.. he gave you back the gun
the deal is done ... the fact that it does not work is NOT HIS PROBLEM.. he says he never used it.. so unless you are going to call him out as a liar .. obviously it was not as working as you thought it was.
you screwed up 2 times
1. by delivering a gun before it was paid for
2. by accepting it back and giving him the money..
so its just as if the deal never happened .. what difference does it make that the gun now does not work ... Either HE broke your gun or you did but it was your gun
he just borrowed it ... and you had no agreement that he would fix it if he broke it..
so lesson learned
and by the way you botched the communication after the fact
What you should have said..
is too bad about your death in the family , sorry for your loss
and walked away wiser
the ROOT cause here is thet you did not get your money up front..
ALL of this .. including the fact that you now have a new enemy that sounds like he can cut you out of the local community is your fault because you choose to not do this transaction in a business like manner
There is a litany of similar deals gone sour threads on here.. all of them have similar trends... Trust is poor glue ... CASH is cement
you screwed up.. and continued to screw up... and now you earned the reward
By the way..... Everything that Tyson said above is ALSO 100% True
that's the thing with bad deals.. its all fu**ed up
and Tys... don't worry.. you know i"m good for it
