**********
WHO:
Former active duty Marine turned surburban dad/Reservist.
WHAT:
Two-in-one shotgun package deal, with everything you need to build:
- a "tactical" Remington 870 Express with Magpul Forend, Insight Laser/Light with Pressure Switch, and 12" Length of Pull (LOP) factory Remington Youth Stock
- a "non-threatening" Remington 870 Express with factory Remington Laminate Wood Forend and Stock
To be clear, it's just one Remington 870 Express shotgun, but the package comes with the upgrades and accessories to build either of these configurations -- the former for home defense, the latter to make Joe Biden proud.
WHERE:
Elk Grove (Sacramento).
WHEN:
I'm generally free during weekday working hours (9am-4pm), but can make myself available on weeknights/weekends.
WHY:
I watched Terminator 2 back in 1991 and resolved to get a shotgun when I grew up. I did so while I was still on active duty in Arizona back in 2011, and have since lugged it around to New York and now California. However, as a suburban dad who now only shoots once in a blue moon, I can't justify keeping this locked under our bed on the offhand chance that Skynet takes over. I think it's time to let go of this one. My loss is your gain!
HOW:
I prefer a face to face (FTF) private party transfer (PPT) at the Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) of your choosing in the greater Sacramento area. However, I drive down to the Bay Area (Alameda) all the time for work, and can take either I-80 (passing through Davis, Vacaville, Vallejo, Richmond, etc), state routes (passing through Lodi, Antioch, Concord, etc), or I-5/580 (passing through Lodi, Stockton, Tracy, Livermore, Hayward). Thus, I can also meet you at an FFL in the greater San Francisco Bay Area, as well as any of the cities I'll pass through on my way from Sacramento.
