    I thought about it and I think that it's because I stated that this thread sucks in a half-joking manner. I believe he takes that as a criticism of other posters when really I was just me commenting on MY making a stupid thread. It was self deprecating. No hard feelings if that's what it was, text doesn't always convey the intent of a sentence very well when it could be taken more than one way. To be clear, I think the people that have posted in this thread are great and responded to a questionable thread in a reasonable adult manner and with a positive attitude. It seems like a very welcoming place other than this minor misunderstanding. Now back to the regularly scheduled programming.

    I took it as a joke, hence my response to it.

    That's how I took it to mean. Guess it doesn't translate to everybody that way.

    That was clearly a joke.

    Where in DFW is this place? I am in FW.. so if it's in North Dallas I am not your guy... I also take partners with me to every exchange. If I am deeply suspicious 2 or more. So if this guy is fishy that's not a problem for me. I'll ship it to you if it is on the west side of DFW.. East side you'll have to find someone else.. The drive is unbearable.

    Oh, so this is the issue. Well, I think the";)" makes it pretty clear that I was joking. You simply misunderstood.

    I really have no clue, you would have to contact the guy. He didn't respond to my email, likely because I asked him to let me know if he changed his mind on shipping. I'm really not worried about this upper anymore, don't worry about it. However, it was VERY generous of you to offer. I will probably build my own piston upper, it won't be the same but it will be fine.

    Kinda off to the side, but there is actually an escrow company that is good for handling these kind of semi-trusted transactions between strangers. check out escrow.com
    There is a small fee, and payment is sent to them, the merchandise is sent to them, when they have both, they will ship the item to buyer, he inspects it and if found acceptable, instructs them to pay seller.
    I have an account and have used it in the past for contractor work... (flagstone project in back yard, semi-shady contractor... All came out fine in the end tho)

    Just an idea
