If you're selling a rifle you say is a custom build, or brag about how tight it shoots, show a group picture for evidence. 100+ yards.

As far as I'm concerned I would show a group pic on ANY rifle I was selling.

If you're a bad shooter, or bad eyes, there's nothing wrong with showing the best you can do, and saying it's the best you can do, and you think the rifle can do better.

Just my opinion.

I've sold a couple that shot great, and I believe I posted groups for both IIRC. I agree that I don't really enjoy seeing threads asking big $ for guns because of their accuracy without any evidence of it.

Next thing you know everyone will be shooting 25 yard groups claiming they are 100 or 200 yard groups.

I agree 100% and I'll even go a step further and say to take a quick video of current rifle condition and shooting a group.

Here is a great example: http://texashuntingforum.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/6850442#Post6850442

Note - I'm not sure that photos of groups or videos attribute to selling quicker but it sure does reduce the amount of tire kicker PMs and texts you get!

Agree 100% on the pics, JG, including calipers if possible. Unfortunately, as has been stated, there's no guarantee on the distance. P_102

Posting targets would just another way for some here to attempt to show everyone how great they are, again. Seems some need their ego stroked every now and then.

Whatever floats someone's boat though.

I enjoy seeing pics of other's groups. And you can usually tell when someone's full of it, just by reading a few of their posts.

Well said. This is a good place to buy, sell, and trade. Lets keep it that way!
