    I don't believe it!

    A well known internet auction site remove wooden butt stock listing because it doesn't "comply" with their firearms policy. Apparently listing of rifle butts is not currently permitted (except for the ones that still are).

    Yeah, I'd believe anything with Flea Bay... its a scam that works for them and their mates PayPal first and foremost.

    Remember in this woke world: "Guns are evil"

    I once tried to get one of these morons to explain what their gun parts "policy" was, they had no answer. Somewhat akin to havng an IRS agent answer a tax question over the phone. Some things never change...

    Just trying to understand their thinking is difficult at times.

    The other item that was taken down a while ago, from the same site, was my "Victory Bell" because they said it was "Nazi related" even though there are no nazi symbols on it. I did argue with them over it but didn't get anywhere because they insisted that because the aluminium came from a shot-down Germanicon aircraft, it was "Nazi related" and it made no difference that it had been melted down to cast the bell. By this token you could say that anything made of metal, especially steel, since 1945, is/could be "Nazi related". This is because it is common practice to use a certain amount of recycled metal in the production of new metal.

    As with (too) many things, Common Sense is no longer as common as it once was, unfortunately.

    The seller's listing probably said it was for an "Uzi", one of the most evilest of guns!
