Only $3k - notice there is no mount. I thought he would have learned the first time he tried to sell this.

Yep, in the southwest, there's all kinds of critters - Scorpions, Tarantulas, rattle snakes, pack rats and other reptiles and animals that can hurt you or ruin your property if you let them! But for the most part, leave them alone and they leave you alone. Build or buy a home in the desert and those kind of things are common and expected.

This one... Funny peculiar not ha ha so much. Some sales strategy. Sure makes me want to be a NOT buyer!

I can't seem to attach the ad from my phone, sorry. It is currently on CN classifieds for a near perfect Cave reflector buy it now or she dies. Seems more like a note from a kidnapper than a classic scope enthusiast. Hopefully in jest but if not... Grind away dude!

He seems unduly concerned with the possibility of murderers trying to purchase a 12" scope. No telling what wicked use they might put it to. Me, I'd think it would be better for them to be spending time looking at deep sky objects than sitting around idle and bored looking to kill a little time or that sort of thing.

I guess he can handle two but not three or more individuals. Or maybe he has just one buddy. Or maybe only a double barrel shotgun. Or maybe.........ahh who cares. :smirk: Mike
