Oh, I forgot the best part.

THEY EXPECT ME TO DELIVER IT TO THEM.

The Valley of the Sun is about 70-80 miles across. I live way out east. So, when dealing with firearm related buying and selling, there is a longstanding game that is played.

Seller (me) is way out east.

Buyer is somewhere middle valley.

Buyer asks me where I am. I say far east valley.

Buyer (this is the play) says they live way out west - and can I "meet them halfway". Reality is they are in the middle valley. But I accept them at their word.

So, I agree. And then essentially deliver it to them. I got gamed a few times. While at the meet, offhandedly asked them where they lived.

Gee, they indicate a few miles away - totally forgot the lie they told to get me there.

Nowadays, when they ask, I tell them "Meeting is at XXXXX". I do not care where they are and don't tell them where I am. They come to me or they can fuck off in any general direction.
