    'recommended retailers' thread/section

    I thought it might be a good idea to have a list of retailers members have dealt with and would recommend? ones that we rate for service, and with a short description of items they stock etc? what do you guys think?

    A very subjective issue. There are dealers that some people have had good experiences with but others have accused of ripping them off. How would a list rate those dealers, and who would police the list to ensure that good dealers are not unfairly tarnished, and bad dealers are not unjustly recommended?

    I don’t think lists like these work, or are actually worthwhile.
    Wanted: Baton/Irritant rounds (inert) and associated items, .700 NE (inert) and boxes (empty), .32-40 cartridge boxes (empty), WW2 British shotgun cartridge boxes (empty), Greener Police Gun cartridge boxes (empty). Message me if you have any of these items for sale/trade.

    it would of course be subjective, but it would be good to have dealer details/links in one place at least, if not reviews then.

    those listings are militaria dealers generally though, not those who specialise in inert ordnance, or at least known to have a selection in stock.

    What if someone puts up a negative review, the dealer sees it and is offended, and decides to sue the poster and the website?

    The internet is not a good place to post opinions of commercial operations. IMHO.

    Something to steer clear of I think.

    as above it would be for recommended retailers so there shouldn't be negative reviews - if you don't rate a seller, you wouldn't post a recommendation.

    I think that once it is set up it would be difficult to keep negative comments out. Human nature, especially if someone is angry about a bad deal.

    [QUOTE=Millsman;312837]What if someone puts up a negative review, the dealer sees it and is offended, and decides to sue the poster and the website? "

    We tried this many years ago but ended up cancelling it due to the reasons millsman gives above.
    But thank you for your suggestion

    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel .
