    I signed up for it to support the system, but then I see bad posts about it, so I will stick with cash or paypal for the time being.

    I knew about the origination, but am quite amazed at the number of problems. They've lately been alternating between promising they'll fix everything, and threatening dissenters.

    I thought it was very cool when I first heard about it, and am disappointed at how it's turned out. I'm not so sure about the self-victimizing, but perhaps you're right. You often are.

    i've heard of GunPal but never used them. every time i've ever purchased something from gunbroker or whatnot i have either concluded the transaction face-to-face or handled it via a direct credit card processing.

    Just curious...Ever heard of GPal/GunPal?

    If you're also subscribed to the dc-stuff mailing list, you've already seen this. On the other hand, the collection of people who might be interested is larger here.

    They (gpal) seem to have started out with an interesting premise. PayPal doesn't allow certain kinds of transactions, including those for guns (apparently). These guys saw a hole in the marketplace, and jumped right in. It seems that things haven't gone so swimmingly as they might though, since Google is filled with links of complaints.

    What I find interesting (and a little sad) is that they're victimizing the very population least likely to go to the authorities (second amendment defender kinds of folks). Anyone ever heard of them? Had dealings with them?

    That second link's some interesting reading.
