When I sell or buy something on Craigslist, (like getting rid of old stuff) I just meet them at a very public place like a convenience store.

That way both of us are comfortable with the transaction. Always has gone smooth.

When substantial cash is involved, my wife and I run backup. I park ahead of time in the parking lot. She parks near. She carries. I watch ready to intervene. Never had a problem.

She politely tells them on the phone that she carries a gun and she wants to let them know in advance so they don’t get upset. We have had a guy never show up—probably because the pickin’s seemed easier elsewhere.
