Yeah, please don't get me wrong here. I'm not trying to be a jerk or anything. I pointed out that both parties of the transaction made mistakes.
Mark's mistake was sending the wrong item, or rather advertising it as the wrong item.
Silent_lemon's mistake seems to have been waiting to get this resolved.
I can see your point, silent_lemon, about not checking the gun out until now since you wouldn't actually be using it til summer.
It just seems kind of odd though, to me anyways. I guess it's because when I buy something expensive, I do open it right away to make sure it's all OK. Be it airsoft or whatever. It's not like you couldn't use it all til summer either, so that's why I would say you're also responsible at this point.
You started this thread to get people's input, so there's mine. Take it or leave it.
