    Upon further review, I've decided that it's an umbrella.....

    A poison tipped spy umbrella! :)

    i bet used as a weapon that umbrella could be deadly- no joke. Paranoid much? I'm more sketched out by the ads with messy bedrooms, stained sheets and disgusting garbage people post on list and jiji. Ugh- skusting terrible /beg my pard.

    I'm going with umbrella on this one.

    If that's the case, then I believe we have discovered the identity of the seller:


    Be careful---this guy is a known CL scammer.

    When zoomed in, it definitely looks like the end of an umbrella:

    They want you to think it's just an umbrella. Very clever....

    What? It's a screwdriver. I didn't register that as a step, either...it looked more like an old wooden toolbox. I guess it could be a step too. Definitely no gun present, though.

  11. I would add that the legs of that table in the photo shows a table that wasn't cheap, not to mention those ceramic large tiles are exactly what I had installed in my home and they are $60.00 a box roughly 5.99 per Sq foot yeah only 5 tiles per box. Go by the amp

    This. That's exactly what I thought. The ad looks totally legit, to me at least.

    It is a metal-tipped carrot.

    Those aren't even steps. It's a wooden box. That is also not a firearm at all.

    The only thing I've learned in this thread is that people can be paranoid over stained pine and things that don't resemble guns.
