to me
Hello

The product is available and it is in perfect condition working great.First of all I can't make this deal face to face because I am in United Kingdom. I work as investigative reporter and I am here to make a documentary about the orphans kids. I want to continue this transaction through a 3rd part Elite Courier...I am in England and I have talked with the people from Elite Courier already.The item is at them ready for delivery and I paid for the taxes and fees already.I worked with them in the past and everything was fine.I posted in your area also because I want to sell it fast(we need money).Please let me know if you want more info about the delivery process.

Thank you

Thanks for a rapid response Tom!

What a funny coincidence! I am going to England in three weeks for a Paintball Vacation. Sherwood Forest holds an annual Paintball gathering, complete with a Renaissance Fair, Jousting Tournament, LARP Convention (LIGHTNING BOLT!) and day excursions to the surrounding cities for shopping, wildlife viewings and Red Light District Discount Tours. I am so excited to go back for some Muppet Mowing Action and it would be even more of an Excellent Adventure if I could use a new Bob Long G6R. I've been looking for that color combination for ages, my friend Bill said his friend Ted only saw a few of these made, the green reminds me of the green green grass of home, so I'm excited to get this. Is it possible to pick this up in three weeks in England? Or would you rather ship it to me?

Thanks, look forward hearing back from you!

PS - Hopefully the girls throw their panties at me when they see me sporting this SexBomb of a Paintball Marker!

Hopefully he gets back to me.

It's an obvious scam. "Elite Courier" would be the first clue. I'd expect the response to be a request for a Western Union transfer. Nice reply though.

btw, it's listed in Tokyo too

That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.
