    I agree with Majormadmax, .......does the 25 posts' restriction only apply to sellers or buyers as well? It should apply to buyers also, IMO.

    Most gun forums I have been on over the last twenty years or so, usually have a minimum post count before being able to sell anything.

    Applying that for buyers as well does sound like a good idea to me as well.

    I found TGT while I was looking for some powder in my area to buy. Might not have stuck around, if there was a posting requirement before buying. Selling restrictions I get though.

    To all who have asked about posting requirements, yes, there's a 25 post requirement to sell. AFAIK there's no such requirement to buy. (Yes, if anyone wants to get pissy about me posting from memory then I can dig out the permissions and confirm.)

    However, the system enforces a de facto posting requirement for buyers because new users can't PM until they have 25 posts.

    One thing I noticed, TGT does seem to have a much larger classified section than most other gun forums.

    I require a BOS.
    Only conduct transfer in Police Dept. lobby or FFL premise that charges at least a $75 fee
    3 witnesses are required that neither buyer or seller know personally.
    Buyer must provide a Notary
    Weapon will be held until I am sure the money paid is real. At least a week.

    I think this is reasonable, but its funny I have not been able to sell any of my guns. And I have all the top brands like Taurus Rossi and Rohm. Even a Jennings.
