As many of you guys know, I recently put 3 DAQs up for sale. Well immediately after listing, I get an e-mail from a guy named William Forster, saying he would take the Exile.308 for the asking price of $1500, and wanted to know where to send the check. A cell phone call came about, and he wanted to know if a personal check would surfice. I replied no, that is had to be a USPS Money order. Acouple of days pass and he callls and says he could not get a money order for that amount, would a certified check be ok. I said it would, and he assure me it would be mailed immediately. Well here is where I get a case of stupid. As I was going to the UPS Store to ship some other guns, I took his as well. Yep you guessed it, no cashiers check ever showed. I emailed this guy, even talked with his mother. Finally I get an e-mail from this guy saying is going to send the check for the $600.00 minus $200.00 for a stock imperfection. He says this is the price we had agreed on. I e-mail him back and say WHAT ARE YOU TALKIN ABOUT $600.00 the price was $1500.00. He e-mails back, no it was for 2 of your guns. About now I am ready to call out the Militia. Now keep in mind this crook has never sent a dime then or now. Here is where it gets interesting, if I don't have your attention by now. First off my neighbor and best friend is a Judge, and all of us bigbore guys are friends as well. The first thing I do is to call Eric Henderson to tell him of my problem. We talk awhile and he says that guy called me, and was telling some stories, but wanted a Quackenbush. Plus he was naming some other folks as well, like Lee McAfee and others. Well Eric called Bob Dean, and Dennis Quackenbush, and I called Lee McAfee. The next step was to take all my documentation, e-mails, shipping forms, and deliver notifications, etc. to the Judge. The Judge goes to the Sheriff on my behalf. Then I get a call from Bob Dean telling me he had just recieved the gun from this guy to do a power tune on it. I breated a sigh of relief, and this gun was now listed on the NCIC as stolen property. To make a long story short, the Sheriff siezed the gun as stolen property, it was returned to Missouri last night, and back to me this morning. Big sigh of relief. The guys got me for a scope and rings, but that is small price to pay. I have Eric Henderson, Bob Dean, and Dennis Quackenbush, and a big thanks to the Judge, and my local Sheriff. Mr.William Forster, you had better crawl under a rock and hide.
