If I said I'd hold the item for you I'd hold the item for you because my word is my bond. Nothing wrong with other people making offers though, doesn't hurt to ask. I've used Craig's list and my phone response to callers has been first person here with cash get it. Be it a hard top, enclosed trailer, soft top. Even if someone has offered me more money to hold it a couple of days it's first come first served.
I'd help out a forum member though and hold the item for a week. Then if you stuck it to me I'd PM sniper and make him a good deal.
I support the military, fiscal responsibility, Hemp, legalization of Marijuana over 21, smaller government and the Bill of Rights.
NSA: The only part of the government that actually listens.
