    I very much agree ! a STATE CLASSIFIEDS sticky , that is similar to the state forums page..but for selling Guns & gun related stuff. could also have people donate a % of the sale price to OCDO, on the honor system.

    does that sales tax go up regularly like gas prices and cigarettes??? any donation/contribution to the forum/organization should be voluntary. i have never seen any other forum where the "for sale" section required a %. and i'm on probably close to 20+ forums.

    Voluntary of course. I am only talking like 3% - 5% of the sale price at most. Another way for the site owner to generate income for OCDO. Only an idea.

    I would not limit it to just Handguns myself. a gun is a gun, Hand gun, Rifle, shot gun......they all go bang. why not let people sell what they have. Guns & Gun related items. ( holsters, magazines, ammo, parts, etc )

    oh boy. you guys are already talking way to much and making this more complicate than it really is.

    SIMPLE

    option 1) a FORUM RELATED ONLY for sale/wanted/barter section. which means ONLY GUN RELATED. no cars, tv's, Barbie dolls and inflatable animals.

    option 2) a ANYTHING for sale/wanted/barter section. here you can sell your inflatable animals to watch tv with.

    option 3) 2 sections. one is for GUN RELATED ONLY, and the other is EVERYTHING ELSE.



    no create a thread with those 3 options as a poll and let the people decide.


    why do humans always have to think so damn much to the point of over complicating things??? i swear sometimes if people would just stop thinking, things would be so much simpler and make so much more sense.

    not really grumpy. and i don't drink coffee. tastes gross.

    i'm just a very very simple person. people get upset at me about how simple i keep things. but i just don't understand why people have to take something as simple as putting a round peg into a round hole and make it so complicated that it takes construction crews and engineers and scientists and politicians and astro physicists and that weird guy from the dumpster down the road to put the damn round peg into the damn round hole.


    god damit........now you made me write a run-on sentence and i really don't feel like going back and fixing it now.

    The guy from the dumpster could probably do a better job than the others you listed.

    This has been discussed several times and the best I can remember, Mike nor John have ever even replied. So don't get your hopes up guys. They are busy enough as it is. Then to have to run a classified section along with it? Plenty of other sites do that.

    it couldn't be a thread. it would have to be a section where each person could start a for sale/wanted/barter thread.


    if they just made one long thread, could you imagine trying to sort back through 300pages to try and find that one piece that you saw a week ago and wondering if it sold yet or not.

    There is usually a good sense of community here at OCDO, so I think it's only natural to occasionally think about buying, selling or trading goods here among the friendly.

    However, there are several practical matters which do get in the way.

    Handguns can only be transferred across state lines through a FFL. Even in-state transfers have all kinds of different rules, depending on which state. To be a respectable site that facilitates these sorts of things, one must monitor the messages to ensure that for the most part nobody is breaking any laws, and that would take time, which I strongly suspect that Mike and John would rather devote to OC issues.

    Plus there are plenty of other sites that do have classifieds. Sure, we don't know those folks as well, but they are probably bigger, and offer more selection than you would probably find here anyway.

    Here are a few:

    http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/...splay.php?f=14
    http://smith-wessonforum.com/guns-sale-trade/
    http://thehighroad.org/forumdisplay.php?f=22
    http://thehighroad.us/forumdisplay.php?f=22

    If you're in Virginia, or want to convince someone in Virginia to ship to your FFL:

    http://vaguntrader.com/

    There may be other state-specific sites, but I don't know them.

    I am not currently looking to buy a gun, but in the past when I have been, I regularly visited all these sites. One thing I discovered was that most sellers knew about more than one of these sites, as there were often duplicate posts, and sometimes on all of them.

    Good luck!

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm not sure we need a sticky for this.

    Folks in the WA state forums here have posted firearms (long-arms and handguns both) for sale in the state forum before as a normal thread. When the item is sold the OP just edits his first post to say "SOLD" and then the thread goes dormant.

    I think having a sticky would make it more difficult to keep track of the sales, since you'd have multiple sales going on in the same thread.

    In other words, why not just use the existing state forums and post something like Topic: FS: SA 1911 Govt 5" and then in the thread post a picture, give a description and an asking price. When it's sold, just edit the post to say "SOLD" and delete the picture and the information.

    I agree with TFred.... no need for yet another classifieds for me to keep an eye on.
