Thanks for the "heads up" on Moonpie! He sounds as dangerous as the firearms. With limited financial resources due to health issues, along with a wife who is just itching for a divorce, I had better stay FAR away from "Moonpie" postings. LOLYep. We are here because we enjoy the company, conversation, and banter with most members. We tolerate others. In other words, it's kind of like a family!
Every once in a while we sell things to each other!
Watch out for Moonpie. He posts really cool stuff for sale when he knows you are down to pork & beans and grape jelly for groceries.
Yeah, the fees are understandable for access to such a large inventory but they have gotten kind of high lately. Then on top of that they were forced to start collecting state sales tax so the buyers have to pay more and the sellers have to collect the taxes from the buyer and send it in to Gunbroker. It's becoming an increasingly more complex transaction. Texas Gun Trader works well in the Houston area because of the huge population but sorting through the scammer sellers and flaky/no show buyers is a headache.Texas Gun Trader is just fine as long as you only do FTF sales. Buying is mostly the same as long as a phone number is listed in the ad. If there is no phone number listed then you are probably 50/50 on scammer / someone private.
Gunbroker is good if you are willing to ship and deal with all their rules, ect.
Me too, but I only do FTF and for cash. Have used Gunbroker to sell once and it seemed like a hassle. Buying on GB has been easy though.
Howdy and welcome! Stop by Introductions when you have time and give us some background, neighbor!
