Not to mention the 50% possibility of getting an "almost new" gun that doesn't work or has other significant damage the seller took pains to hide.

Sure, we have buyer/seller feedback, resolution, etc. but frankly when you can get a really nice BNIB piece from a retailer for $300-$500 nowadays, why bother? To most people time and effort is worth $$.

The only way I'd say AV is worth it for the classifieds is the AV Retailer Section. There's some good deals and good retailers in there.
