    Is there any difference?

    Hello. Could you help me please.

    I have the question. Two sentences :
    1. It is dangerous to deal with him
    2. It is dangerous to have a deal with him

    First question is : Is that sentences right?
    Second is : is there any difference between them?

    Thank you in advance.

    #1 is fine, but #2 isn't.

    #2 could be, "It is dangerous to have to deal with him."

    Or..........

    "It is dangerous to do a deal with him."

    Buggles, thanks.
    But.

    2. It is dangerous to have a deal with him.

    You said its wrong. Ok. But, let me change the 1 word.

    3. It is dangerous to have a gun.

    is that correct?

    And:

    4. It is dangerous to have a trip with him.

    What about this one?

    Thanks in advance

    It's not the 'dangerous' construction that's the problem, but the collocations that follow it.
