    Question For Sale on OpenCarry.org?

    I don't see a "For Sale" listed anywhere. Is this site OK with sales & trades on the forum? If so, where is the correct place to post guns for sale/trade?

    Thanks, I must have glazed over that.

    Do you know why sales are prohibited?

    I do not know the reason. You'd have to ask John (Administrator) or Mike.

    Some people have had luck using www.armslist.com. Seems to be the craigslist of guns.

    Must of glazed over that as well. Let me re-quote the rule. I'll highlight the part in question:

    Hahahahahaha! Thanks Paul, it looks like I glazed over it TWICE!

    So let me get this strait. This pro-gun forum that is all about open carry, 2nd amendment, stand up for your rights, etc... is using an ant-gun advertiser that doesn't allow the sale of guns, ammo, etc... That has got to be the funniest thing I have heard all week. LOL!!!

    I am a long time member of multiple pro-gun forums and EVERY ONE of them have a "for sale" section. How does this get fixed? No really, if the only reason that people on this pro-gun site are not buying and selling guns and ammo is because an anti-gun advertiser said so...

    Who owns this site?

    Kinda ballsy telling the owners what to do. I would assume if your single handedly replaced the revenue they would drop it. Why do you feel you need to sell stuff here? What does that have to do with Open Carry?

    I haven't told the owner to do anything. I asked him to weigh in on the topic.

    I don't feel the need to sell anything. I feel the need to point out that it is strange for a pro-gun site to have a rule that seems rather anti-gun. That's why I asked him to weigh in on it. Perhaps it comes down to a misunderstanding.

    If it is a misunderstanding, it is your misunderstanding. John and Mike have very consistently removed for sale ads. I'm not sure how you could misunderstand a fairly simple rule.

    (10) WE DO NOT ALLOW "FOR SALE" OR RAFFLE ADS: We use Google Ads to help cover the expenses of the forum and their rules specifically disallow the sale of firearms, ammo and accessories (including the raffle of such). The good news is that one of our newest sponsors, OutdoorsTrader.com offers just such a service.
    I'm not sure how else it could be interpreted other than 'WE DO NOT ALLOW "FOR SALE" OR RAFFLE ADS'.

    On Outdoorstrader.com my user name is jsut plain Outddorsman (been there a while)... They have excellent deals on some really AWESOME weapons...AR's and such... and just about everything else under the sun. The only bad thing is they are out of (I think) Georgia and most will not ship (unless the seller and buyer can use a liscenced firearms dealer...which adds to the cost...

    A good website for local WI. gun sales in http://www.lake-link.com in the trading post section inder guns...

    I am just a little curious as to why you would ask the question here as you are already on the lake-link website I listed in my previous post with gun sales ok there...?????

    There are tons of places to buy/sell guns on the internet, and there are a lot of FFL's that accept shipment of firearms for out of state purchases. Ted's dinner on North Ave in Wauwatosa is who i use.

    My point is this...the rules on this forum state that reason gun sales are prohibited is because Google Ads doesn't allow it. The pro-gun forum is following the rules of an anti-gun agenda. Isn't that the definition of hypocrisy?

    I really don't care if this site allows gun sales or not, that's up to the owner of the site. My problem is with the reason that it's not allowed.

    + 1

    Also I am not so sure "GOOGLE" is so much anti-gun as they are a WORLD WIDE highly used website on a DAILY basis and as such, considering some situations in other parts of the WORLD, I can understand and actually agree with their policy.

    I apologize to others for all the capitalize words but I figured that way nobody would “glaze over” my point…

    Search "google antigun" in any search engine and you will see they are clearly anti-gun. I am sorry to hear that you would agree with that type of policy.
