Q: Who are you and why should I trust my
money with you?
A: My name is
Nick. I'm in my
30's 40's (damn), own a small home with
an on-site machine shop in NE Ohio and have a 4 y/o
5 y/o 6 y/o 7 y/o
8 y/o 9 y/o 10 y/o 11 y/o daughter. My personal
interests include reading (primarily biographies and accounts of the early
days of aviation), lifting, being catfished off Hinge and airplanes.
Despite the planes, I'm a homebody and am
typically tinkering around the property somewhere. Either with my daughter
or I'm in my shop.
I started selling Crosman parts and upgrades when I found a
large market open in the airgun industry. There were a couple independent
sellers and machinists, but eBay and Amazon were new almost completely
unpenetrated at the time. The guys that had their own dot coms were typically
mail-only and sometimes even cash-only affairs.
Most of the current independents, especially
the one known for his rudeness, penchant for blaming everyone but himself and
inability to spell his business name correctly, copied my listings,
photographs and descriptions. Sometimes verbatim.
