I wouldn't do it, as tempting as it sounds. I have had quite a few people over the years ask me if I want the same thing from them outside e-bay. I always pass on them, then I usually read about someone else that got ripped off from that same person in the bad sellers post.

If you're from florida, I would just wait till the convention, someone is sure to have one there, I would think smile.gif

Where is he shipping this Flagg from. $200 shipped is pretty low considering how much shipping will cost on a Flagg. If you do it you need to either pick up in person or make sure you have recourse (paypal with a credit card, etc...)

I would highly suggest using paypal, and have him send you a "request for money". That makes it all legal through paypal. If he tries to stiff you, and he's registered a bank account, paypal can go into his account and take back the cash. BTW, if it's on the up and up, that's a good deal.
