    in the sticks of nc
    ill bet your in NC,SC, or TENN....... right?
    the iwanna is great but it is better to call and actually talk to someone instead of send an online add or leave a message afterhours. around here(WNC) they are charging 8 bucks for any gun add for 1 week, or at least that is what it says in the heading before the gun section adds..

    and this
    has been cut down to about 3 or 4 sentences.

    give them a call there pretty nice people

    For those of us who are un-enlightened, what is IWANNA?

    IWANNA is the local ad rag paper. There is another in SC called The Carolina Trader. A lot better to deal with I think.

    Trader has much better deals, and no crazy restrictions. I avoid IWANNA for the most part - you can browse guns, but can't get the numbers. Trader you can't browse, but it's like 65 cents from a newsstand.
