People not posting pics, and real details and bumping for months without a price drop, and saying OBO and when you give a fair price just under their advertised price they tell you they aren't willing to go lower than their price. FFS believe it or not its ten times worse on car forums. NO PICS anyway or its heres my cell text for pics and then the pics are terrible ass cell phone pics. Cell phones are getting halfway decent cameras now, put some fucking effort in. You know what helps? Giving a buyer confidence that the item is legit.

Bought a pair of rims today, after messaging 3 other people with lower prices, them sending me shitty as pics and when i asked for better ones gave me lip. So I spent 200 bucks more, got real rims and told the other two guys to shove it. Called me a flaker but I wasn't driving 2-4 hours just to see the rims in person, if you aren't willing to make an effort the sail won't happen.

When you try to sell something, if you're too lazy, how do I know if the item is actually in good condition, and how do I know you won't be too lazy to pack it decently, and ship it decently?

If I open a thread without images, I don't even read the description and pass.

This is entirely my point. More so on a Car forum. Your trying to sell me items worth hundreds of dollars.

More so with car forums you get descriptions like

"LEgit Mugen style wing, real CF, Legit from Japan, real JDM, mint, 10/10 minus the these two holes, 70 dollars."

Nothing real is ever 'Style' (take a look at the MARSOC style gear, shits china fake eh)
If you want me to buy your wing, is it 'wet' or 'dry' carbon fiber?
what condition, is it painted or just plain.
Clear or no clear coat?
Test fit?
Why such a low price (some of these wings can retail for 1-4 grand easy.)
Stop telling me its legit and show me its legit.
Any colour fading?


Like seriously. I gotta either have this thing shipped to me or i gotta drive out to get it. Make me want the item....

The replies I get are like Bro, Dawg, homey, bro best bro, and other stupid shit. I swear to god some members of the Honda game are good, others babble on like uneducated wannabe gangfucks.

ASC is like a savior. I gotta get back into the Airsoft scene now...

Made me SOOOO mad today, I rounded a corner that I knew an enemy was behind, and fired a 4bb shotshell right into the guys stomach as soon as I swing around at about 4 feet distance, and he just shoots me back and totally ignores it, shoots my buddy as he comes in behind me, I walked away absolutely fuming

On Monday at FR Indoor I shot a guy 60 or so feet away 10 times in semi, he wasn't even behind proper cover and was not moving. He proceeded to shoot me back. I called hit, respawned, went back to find him in the same spot and emptied a midcap on him at 40 RPS. He literally ignored the first 40 shots before he finally called hit.

Yup, that's why when I sold my first gun on the classified I acted as if I was buying the thing. When the buyer wanted extra photos, I send him a ton of close up so he saw that the gun was in fact in good shape. And when I packaged the gun, I took a couple more photos during the process so that he knew that it was properly padded. And I insured it.

Sell it like you would like to buy it guys. Simple as that.

I also tend to just pass over ones that are AEGs but say "mags $15 each" ...fucking just make it a package.

I just looked right at him and said "Bull Shit" and walked away, I really didn't want to get into it cause I was mad, he also seemed to be friends with the field owners as he was in their office behind the counter afterwards so he probably has immunity...

My main airsoft pet peeve is Canadian retailers that sell guns and gear at old school prices. I think everyone knows the main retailer who is guilty of this sin, but I just noticed a new vendor has their adds up...claiming "low prices" and "huge selection". What the TWO gbbr's you have in stock? Oh and the low price of 400 dollars for a KWA usp that we can get in Toronto in a store for 200 bucks CASH?

Jesus.
