Re: What is the process for owning a silence
My dealer had a guy looking for a MAC. Found him one and bought it (about a grand back then) and paid the 200 to transfer it to him (1200 now invested). Sold it to the customer for 1500 plus another 200 for that transfer. Transfer refused. Customer was a convicted felon. So, there he was. Stuck. Couldn't give the customer the machinegun. WASN'T gonna give the customer his money back. Customer went to jail (convicted felon trying to buy a gun) and the MAC sat in the shop for a couple of years before it was finally sold. I presume the sale price was passed on to the customer, but I'm sure it was not no 1700.
The one gun I bought in a private sale - not going through a dealer - I wrote the bill of sale. In it I put that, if for any reason at all the Feds declined the transfer, I got the entire 12K back.
