    Flatonia, TX 78941 and Ravenna, OH 44266
    Both are the same ad from different zero feedback sellers

    Hello all. I bought this pistol in November of 2020; this gun was Never fired; it comes with 4 mags - 10rds( as required in my state ) *Ammo not included * it also comes with a new Streamlight TRL-8 with green laser. Model # 69434 TLR-8A G a $260.00 value I believe 2 of the mags can be reverted to full capacity.

    I banned 3 separate user names just a few days ago, but in reality, they were 3 the same person who after being banned, would just create a new user name and post his scam up again. A Google search of his ad title led me to exact same scam-post on Gunbroker as he tried to run here. If they are one-trick posters. I would avoid.

    yeah that’s what I thought. How are they getting past the Facebook nazis.. I had the ol lady post a trailer on Facebook for sale or trade for something that goes ‘pew pew’ and Facebook took it down because of the literal words pew pew
