The scammer will then introduce you to the secondary “shipping” website which will have been created by the scammer. These websites can be very professional and will allow you to log in to see your item being shipped.

Classic Shop – Staccato 2011 USA


The Sale: Scammers create professional looking websites or advertise on gun forums. They often offer weapons for low prices. No matter how scarce, they have multiple in stock.


The Shipping: Even though they have no intention of sending you anything, they will continue charging you more and more fees until you refuse to pay any more. Depending on what you are buying, they may then try to blackmail you. The shipping website they use will be another website they have created as part of the scam.


Payments: Paying for guns, accessories, and ammo online is difficult. All payment platforms like PayPal, Venmo, and Zelle prohibit these transactions. Criminals will refuse to use as an escrow service as it protects both buyers and sellers.

How can I help?

Scammers use bank accounts, Zelle accounts and other assorted payment types. Let us know the details and we will try and shut down their accounts.

Our goal is to gather as much information as possible about and the individuals behind it. By providing us with details about the criminals, we can create a comprehensive understanding of the scammer’s network and take steps to shut it down.

We welcome any information about the scammers, even if you haven’t lost any money. Disrupting their payment methods can have a greater impact on their operations than just shutting down a website, which can easily be recreated.

Protip: If the scammers provide you with bank account information, request that they use Bitcoin instead. If they offer a Zelle account, ask for a bank account to transfer the funds to. You can report multiple accounts to us for further investigation.

You should never give your banking information to these scammers.

Designed and built with FlaTec, the Staccato XL has a surprisingly fast-cycling slide for a pistol with a long sight radius HISTORY OF STACCATO GUNS The competition shooting market in the US is relatively small. At least when you compare it to the tactical market. The tactical market includes not only law enforcement and the military, but also self-defense-minded citizens as well as those who enjoy shooting in general. When STI rebranded to Staccato, they not only changed the name of the company but also changed their offerings. They went from the aforementioned competition-centric models to firearms with a more tactical base. These models of 2011, including the Staccato P, were tested by law enforcement agencies, including the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department and the U.S. Marshals. They were approved for duty use, and the pistol was adopted by the Marshals going forward. This adoption gave Staccato a good launching pad to take over a large portion of the high-end tactical handgun market. Staccato P is a duty-size gun and was the flagship model for the brand when it came to duty usage. They also offer the Staccato C2, which is a slightly-smaller version designed primarily for concealed carry. As we mentioned earlier in this review, the Staccato is designed primarily for duty use. Still this is a gun that can work for multiple roles. This could be shot as a competition pistol, be carried concealed on your person or used as an OWB carry option. The Staccato is very versatile for a larger gun. If you plan to conceal carry this gun, you might want to consider switching out the magazine well or taking it off completely. That will drastically affect the concealment of the firearm. With a flush-fit magazine, the Staccato carries 17 rounds. It also has the ability to accept longer magazines that can hold either 20 rounds or even greater capacities. There are a variety of 2011 magazine options with a variety of lengths and capacities. You can purchase these magazines directly from Staccato or get an even higher-quality magazine through a company called MBX. MBX offers the tactical-style followers that lock the slide back on the last round or competition-style followers that dont.
