    I had someone on the forum contact me about buying my Sig that's for sale.

    He has three posts, all back in 2014, and wants me to ship.

    Die scammer die.

    Postal Money Order. In advance. Notarized bill of sale. In advance. Wait 30 days before shipping.

    Yep, ship after receipt of funds and the check clears. No problem.

    Money first and shipped to an FFL would be the only way I would do it.

    May be a legitimate and legal buyer. If so then sell it but on your terms.

    What is a notarized BOS going to accomplish and why wait 30 days?

    Neither prove anything.

    I joined here originally because someone had a gun listed for sale on here that I wanted to buy. And I did buy it, but it was a local face-to-face purchase.

    The low post count doesn't necessarily mean it is a scammer, but I wouldn't ship it to them either.

    get a postal money order and before shipping take the money order to the post office and convert it to cash. I would not deposit it into a checking account as it can take weeks for a forgery to show up at that point you lost the gun and the cash.
