Now as a recommendation, I do suggest that maybe there should be something stated that people who do conduct B/S/T deals get all contact info from their perspective partner, and verify it. Call the number(s) that are provided, check with other sources to assure that the address is legit and that the name given matches.
If someone does get scammed, I would suggest that there be a measure of proof given. When I was active on Pb Nation, I asked many times for people to take screen shots of their PM's, emails, and IM's with the suspected scammer. If "victim" won't do this, then the claim is worthless. If they can't, then hopefully they can learn how to take screen shots, or even take pictures of their screen with the info that they are trying to prove. Because I, or anyone else could easily claim that "aggboi47" scammed me, and claim that I have done the steps that were mentioned, like contacting the police and such, and what proof is there that "aggboi47" actually did a deal with me or whomever else?

I believe it only applies if you're dealing with another Player's Club member, whether you're in the Public or PC BST I don't believe it matters.

But I need to know like 3 great things that come out of joining the players club. Any help? It's all part of helping someone join the players club.

To add on to his idea or modify it if you will. I think you should have the guns sent to like kohn sports or like a few shops that can be trusted around the country and even internationally to ease the cost of shipping, or just a few of the TechPB elite that could inspect the guns to make sure they are working as described. And i dont mean to take an idea and just like run with it bc i usually like to think things through but just to put these ideas out there so they can be modified by other members as i am doing with the member above. I think the local shops thing would be so sick. For one local shops woul receive a bit of profit from this or reape some sort of benifit which is always good, bc the ppl that invest to meet our needs as paintball players are respected in my book always. And also certain shops could offer extra services like teching/cleaning/relubing the gun. Like putting all new orings in there and cleaning it to like good as new would be awesome, bc it would be just like getting a new gun, but used. Or if someone bought a PM7 or something and the 3rd party shop carried UL frames and the buyer planned on getting one to begin with. The shop can charge the buyer and install the part. This goes with all upgrades aswell, like a feedneck, asa, bolt, or like a reg for a tank or something, depending on the shop. And like with kohn sports, with it being a specialty shop they could have it sent to kohn, then kohns makes sure its working, cleans it if the package is wanted and then kohn can lazer it. So when the buyer purchases the gun they recieve it and dont have to worry about wanting to add this or that or get this done and worry about down time on there gun. I know i would rather play a weekend then have it sent off. It arrives just as they want and they dont have to worry about a damn thing after that. Same can be done with annodizing. The way i see it is like when a buyer purchases an item they have a choice from a provided list of shops and the packages/benifits they offer organized by region and then they pick that. Pay the fees. And just sit back and wait for their gun to come in. Bc i know this is going to be the new way to B/S/T your paintball stuff and its going to see alot of traffic, and it would be really time consuming for you to inspect all these guns. Which could take away from time spent with your fam, or trying to progress this sport even further. And this traffic could be channeled to bring in more revenue to local shops so we can see this sport grow even faster. And its easier to charge or create speculation on a business then one individual person, so i know i would feel a hell of alot safer. Well its just an idea that i had itching in the back of my skull. Let me know what you think mike, and everyone else. Bc im sure its the users feedback we are looking for aswell. Thanks for reading.
P.S. MIke im going to the tryout at kohns this sunday, so maybe we can talk more in detail there.
i really think that this is a great idea, im sure there are plenty of shops nationwide that wouldn't mind a few extra bucks in their business, and i really appreciate everything you have/are doing for the paintball community mike, its good to know that there are people like you out there that give a shit about this sport... keep up the good work!
when you fall down, all you can do is stand up and grab you're nuts and say, im a man and keep on pushin.
