It really worked.
Oh well, nothing lasts forever.
Dont count on them fixing much. Just tried to email someone on there. And getting a message only email originated in the USA are allowed. Well im sitting on my couch in ATL Ga. Using Gmail.
Main question I would have is: Is it worthwhile for someone to put in the effort to be the "new alternative"? Seems like there's a fair amount of risk and not a lot of reward.
Perhaps get affiliated with a gun rights organization with lawyers.
Not really sure what that means?
There is risk, in both the legal sense (which I guess is what you're talking about) and in the sense of time and money spent. What is the reward? What's the upside for someone who does this?
Frankly, I'm asking because I could spin up something like that in a couple months. But I don't know if there's really any point putting out the effort.
Charging a flat fee to list a gun seems like the best and most sustainable model. Maybe offer the first listing for free to draw traffic?
Having to pay to list would significantly cut down on the scammers.
From my perspective I only worry about scams from sellers. I know better than to ever ship a gun or do anything other than face to face in a public place.
A small listing fee, as suggested, would probably resolve that. Hosting really isn't that expensive. It's just that I've done stuff like this before, and it's always been quite difficult to get people to use it, especially when there are alternatives. Even when those alternatives are lousy.
Would probably want to get some legal advice on this one, given the nature of the subject.
Could do the old stand by. Post on Craigslist with cryptic wording. Posted last night, still up today and got a few lookie loos.
Yeah it stinks but it can be done.
I was able to open up a contact with a Dealer here in Missouri this morning, so that option is still open. But would have to sell something to buy, not going to pay $4 AHC monthly fees or higher CC fee.
Maybe you could list " Gun case for Glock 19, with all factory contents, $500. " lol
That would get flagged. Kinda surprised mine hasn't been flagged. One cannot include the name of a gun. So I put pruger. If I would have put ruger flagged in 10 minutes.
the idea of needing to figure out how to use the “New Armslist” Terms means that I’ll simply scan the used display cases in local gun shops more often.
Net result of their new terms?
No new guns seem to have been listed for many days/weeks here, and I check four brands every night—-partly explained by the Glut of Handgun Availability.
Separate names with a comma.
