That sums it up accurately.
For several years I made very good use of Armslist , buying and selling. I had the standard account. Met some real good people in the process , good deals , win/win. Last winter I decided to suck it up and pay the new fee in order to list a couple items for sale. I waited for a week while my account upgrade was supposedly "being processed" , then started sending inquiry emails twice per week for a month and a half.
No upgrade , no response to emails , no nothing.
You know how a snake keeps squirming around for a while after the head is chopped off? That's ARMSLIST today.
www.gon.com it’s Georgia outdoor news. Had one in Virginia when I lived up there. And one in NC.
Post them on here in the classified section. It's easy and it's free!
Luckily we have "Florida Guntrader" here in the Gunshine State. Bad thing is all the Armslist scammers are going there now.

We have them at Gon.com as well. Good thing is they are dumb. And easily avoided. But it works or they would have stopped. So someone is falling prey.
For local convenience
And to avoid payment Fraud.

Guns listed for sale by local shops that shuttered 5 years ago? Nah.
They had a wildly successful business model at one time. They've pretty much killed it off. We used to have 5 or 6 pages of private ads locally. Now there's 1 or 2.
I don't know of any state trading site here. We do have some stores that will take in consignments. You pay for that service though.
Maybe some business savvy members here should pick up the challenge and create a new service that did what Armslist used to do.
For example: for the entire state of Wisconsin there are about 10 handgun list covering a period of 3 weeks.
When Armslist was still good - before the fees and general disfunction - it had that many handgun listings in my city of 50,000 in a week. The overall state handgun listings ran on for pages.
I don’t know why gunlistings has so little traffic.
