Welcome to the forums! You've come to a good place for your rig search. There are some good threads in the General Skydiving forum about how to protect yourself as you're making a purchase and sending money to someone. Check them out!
Skymama is right. It's a really big deal buying a rig and it's easy to get into the wrong situation even if you're not spending a lot. It seems crazy but I recommend you get some help from a rigger who is willing to really help you out.
Welcome to the forums and try not to spend too much time in the classifieds. Haha, they're addictive....
yeah, i'm going through my DZ's gear guru mainly. I've got it decided to buy a new harness/container so it fits me, new reserve, but going to look for a slightly used main, so i can save some scratch and downsize some what economicaly. Eventually I'll get a new main too. Thanks for the advice.
