Being the fella who bought the Stickbowman takedown from the less then truthful guy I wanted to let everyone know it has been sold to a longtime collector. I took a licking on it and sold it for what it was actually worth all things considered.
The sad thing about this is if he would have issued me a measly $500 refund I requested none of this would have happened and his friends would all still be able to access this sight. I still would have lost some money on the deal but would have been happy with the $500. I'm just glad I don't have friends that would take me down like this guy.

I'm guessing that if this is how those guys spend their time, conduct themselves and do "business" with those they call "brothers".....their lives are probably already in some way miserable! Karma can be a bitch!!! [nono]

As a former Administrator/Moderator on another very large forum I can attest to the labors involved in trying to keep it free from scammers and scum bags. A very difficult and never ending job for sure. Without a doubt Terry and the others have done and continue to do a great job in these regards. Thanks to each and everyone of you!!!!

Ouch Gary! I sure hope that you didn't sell for less than my offer! I am very sorry that I had any part of that deal. If I only knew then what I know now. I hope that the buyer posts pics. It would be nice to keep track of the handle, and not let it be one of those never to be seen again; It's still a Stickbowman signed. What was the number again?

Some of the folks that have been banned, one guy screwed another on a $3500 riser...he and his crew are trying to 'DROPBOMB' the site....

MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE DEALING WITH!!!!

If anything sounds fishy...let me know.

If they are NOT a member here BEWARE!!!

If their name is in any way different than their profile.....BEWARE!!!!!...and contact us...and make a post exposing them.

These folks actually screw folks and then laugh about it. What they don't know is they have a snitch in the bunch.....but I'm sure they will find out now that I have posted about it.

I'm now hearing I might get sued....and even punched in the face....

Also found out a guy that got banned once before for breaking the rules wrote me and Rob D a nice LONG note wanting back on and apologizing and we let him back on ....now showing his true colors by joining in on the grade school antics of those are bashing us for looking out for our membership.

Its really sad to see the types of writings, from our so called 'ranks' that I'm seeing from grown men.....who only know how to name call and make physical internet threats. I mean really, all this name calling??? Name calling is the lowest form of intellect.

Anyhow, we are just trying to look out for our members that actually get what TradGang is about the best we can.

Hey....if they are bashing me, they are just giving someone else a break
Thanks again....heard there was chatter of revenge on me at Denton.


Be very careful about dealing with bow brokers - click on their icon and look over their posts. It is not always easy to separate the sheep from the goats.

Blame the guy responsible but not the people he associates with. If your friend did a bad deal, would you want to be blamed or "brought down" in any way? Why all the "drop" references. We get it - but its misplaced frustration.

DO NOT CONTACT TRAD GANG ADMIN OR MODS ABOUT BAD DEALS!

Get to know the buyer or seller (aka "the person") as best you can.

Do a forum wide search for that person, look to see when that person became a member, the number of posts made, what the person posts, how the person's posts have been received by the membership and how that person interacts with other members.

Contact other members about the person for feedback of their opinions as to the credibility of the person, and what's the person's buying/selling track record.

Get the person's mailing address and phone number - it wouldn't hurt to make a phone call chat, if possible.
