    I've have several transactions and have exchanged numerous emails with the Minneapolis pinsiders. They have always been exceptionally polite. I have never recieved the following pms from any Minnesota peeps:

    I have $500 cash in hand for your spiderman...
    or
    I will trade you my gottlieb monte carlo for your spiderman straight up.

    Every trade, sale, or pm has always been pleasant. All machines I have recieved have been well represented and always better than advertised

    Must be something in the water streaming down from the great white north.
    rant over

    Just a public "thank you" to all that I have dealt with

    I'll give you $500 cash for that DM?

    Nope. Must have "cash in hand"

    I've got $800 cash for you Black Rose!

    Oh wait, you're in Omaha and I'm in Boston. You're gonna have to come down another $200 to split the shipping with me.

    LOL Wide open! But it's all in fun and for a good laugh.

    On a more serious note, I'll give you $1000 for your TAF.

    It is all in good fun. Us Minnesotans are polite and usually great to deal with. That is, until we get a few cocktails in us..

    I just had a deal with a Minnesotan fall a part because he changed his mind about selling (I was paying full asking price and going to pick up the next morning) so they are not all great guys.

    Yup. There are dicks here just like everywhere.

    It's cold here in the winter and you never know when you are going to need a hug to stay warm. So you have to be nice!

    I know and really don't mind if someone is a dick, but this guy is really pretty cool. I spent a couple hours at his place shooting the shit while making a deal, then the next morning he changes his mind WTF. Nice guy- dick move.

    Eh, don't take it to heart. Maybe his wife got to him or maybe he got nervous at spending all that money. But that is an aggravating let down.

    Have done many deals with MN guys and all have been great.

    If they ended their sentences with eh you would think they were Canadians.

    Have to agree - should have thought out more prior to agreeing on terms - Hmm a neighbor too

    Dealing with pinheads from Omaha has always been pleasant as well.

    I'm the neighbor, guilty as charged. I made a mistake but I learned from it.

    It's because they get most of thier pins from WI so they have to be nice or we will cut them off.
