• Just a heads up for those of you who use Tapatalk to access NCH&F. I will be removing support for that app effective immediately. The reasons are many, but the primary one is that it allows spammers to post here without first being authorized to do so. This, coupled with their increasingly aggressive and invasive ads and pop ups, has caused us to remove them from the site entirely.

Careful out there. Man killed trying to buy atv

Pretty simple- meet at Sherriffs office or police department…. Especially if it’s one of our shifty or shitty members😁!!! Get out with a concealed carry and an Ar across your body and begin negotiations….if it’s an ammo deal watch out for people trying jump in and run price up……

because it never happened via paper ads or iwannas or craigslist?
I would say probably a lot less ....Craigslist has so many scams now, not worth looking at.....haven't seen an iwanna or a newspaper in years, so wouldn't know about that .....common sense should come into play though

Yep, if I was scared of all the things we are supposed to beware of I would live in a cave. Or mom and dad's basement.
All I said was be careful out there with transactions with complete strangers and you get bent out shape.

I have done probably three dozen transactions with folks here that I didn't know from Adam's house cat. All turned out just fine. I have done at least that many from CraigsList and working up to that number on MarketPlace.

Bent out of shape? Nope, not one bit, but I probably don't need someone less than half my age doing PSAs on how to conduct business. I think I had enough training on how to deal with folks over the years. How much have you had?

I try to meet in a public place. I usually have a CCW on my person, most times I have an overwatch in my vehicle also. I have never felt I was in danger at any meet-up.

The MCSD has a parking spot right in front of the jail.with a camera on it just for online transaction meeting. Pretty nice especially for a woman.

I’m just playing. I’ve done quite a few deals on here and met some nice folk. Only had one bad deal, but that’s gonna happen from time to time.
I’ll do trade with them too lol

Everybody I’ve dealt with from here has been top notch.

On the rare occasion I have something to sell I always list it on one of the forums that I frequent instead of CL or FB. I feel that I'm more likely to have a successful transaction here than dealing with the general public.

Most people have never had a bad experience until they do, local guy in my area had a meet up selling a motorcycle, murderers knew he had money, killed him and they were never caught.
