    I have never used eBay for gun parts, or anything related to firearms.

    That said...all of the above.

    All of the above and use ebay for my non gun related purchases.

    I've purchased hundreds of items off ebay over the years, only a few have been gun related.

    I prefer to buy from gun shops and help support my local gun community, even if I have to spend a few bucks more. However there are times when I want to buy things that you can only find online, in which case there are no shortage of online retailers and company websites.

    Would've said "don't know", but I just found a great deal on speedloaders & a speedloader carrier on Gunbroker. Very happy with the whole transaction.

    Ebay long ago degenerated into a scam artist haven. I go directly to special interest forums. So if I need a high sight for an old Swiss rifle, I look up the guy who sells those. Etc.

    I can't see anything different from their old policy regarding firearms. Doh...he said mid August...I need to read more carefully. Oh well...that really really sucks.

    I stopped using E-Bay years ago. I find GB and AA sufficient for my meeds. GA is too much of a hassle.

    If only gunbroker would start charging to re list items so all the same overpriced junk would stop cluttering up their categories. I swear there's items that have been listed for 4 years now.


    They REALLY need to advertise to take advantage of e-bays idiocy. As a seller I'll move my items over to their site if they can get their exposure up. I've had 70 watchers on e-bay items I've listed, it would be nice iffn gunbroker could do half that.

    Bargains are RARE on gunbroker, especially for magazines, reloading components, then sellers want 8 9 10 dollars for shipping, its rediculoius for shipping charges. Same on ebay, had a guy charge me $6 to ship a cd for about 75 cents. I sell a lot of stuff, so cant write them off.

    OK, if they don't wanna carry gun items, then I just won't buy the stuff...C'mon guys...these are gun things. Gun things are not essential items. It's not like they are closing down your local grocery store!

    I don't need 500 pieces of .45ACP brass THAT BADLY!

    Gunbroker tends to be way overpriced across the board. And as noted the same crud gets cycled and recycled for years. There's one little Colt .38 S&W cylinder that's been up for sale for about four years now. Certain sellers just won't bring the price down. It would be better if they cleaned house from time to time.

    GA has been pretty dead since they put all the new features on. I keep having to log on just to see larger pictures, the whole system is messed up. And as a whole the thing has gone from being a cool on line swap meet to being a place for dealers to post their overpriced back shelf items. Plenty of con men over there, too.

    I've sworn off ebay and paypal. I just don't understand the thought process of those that still use them. Why support someone who blatantly works against you?
