There's not a lot of options for retailers (for guns) on the 'Net right now, so getting verified is definatly worth it if you're looking for AEGs/GBBs in addition to gear. There's almost always a drool-causing deal on the site somewhere...
"War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend: the city of the Men of Numenor, and I would have her loved for her memory, her ancientry, her beauty, and her present wisdom. Not feared, save as men may fear the dignity of a man, old and wise." - J.R.R. Tolkien
