MRPIZAT = Great Seller!

Just finished a transaction with him. He shipped the item early the very next day after I sent him the funds. Definitely a guy you can feel comfortable doing business with!

Mine only stayed open for a few seconds before it began falling down. Nothing a bag of Kingsford couldn't fix. :)
