    Craigslist, Cant sell a gun or ammo, but you can buy a hooker, cheat on your wife, girlfriend, husband and solicite various other illegal activity with no problem!



    Is there a craigslist for firearms?

    Not that i know of, unless you go with gunbroker, which is more a "gun-ebay".

    There is a new "craigslist" , upillar.com.
    Glenn beck interviewed the owner a while back, and I don't think it prohibits guns.

    I haven't used it myself yet.

    Isn't that interesting. Sometimes I wonder about our priorities in life.

    There's a few ways to get around the firearms ban...

    You could always list for sale a 'well-armed hooker'...just be specific when you describe the lube/maintenance schedules, number of shots fired, etc. Would hate to confuse a potential, uhh...'buyer'.

    Or perhaps a 9mm 'bong' made by S&W....

    www.ArmsList.com. I don't know much about them. Looks like it is sparsely trafficked in my area.

    GunBroker, GunsAmerica and AuctionArms are more established sites.

    There have been a few craigslist type gun sites, but they don't do well. One guy advertised his over on the High Road about a year ago. Last I looked there were still about .............. 0 guns advertised in my state.

    I've never been one to follow the rules on Craigslist. I have bought andsold a couple dozen guns on Criagslist in the past two years, and will continue to do so. Sure, they flag my ad off sometimes, but it is easy to repost them. I price the guns reasonably, and they usually sell the first or second day. Sure, it's against their rules.....but so is paying for gun related items with PayPal, and people do it all the time. Silly rules if you ask me.

    Flame on! :tongueout:

    When I look through Craigslist, I always see people selling stuff, or willing to trade for a gun. You cant outright post a gun for sale, but you can find the people who want them.

    if you post your phone number in the title, that stays up a bit longer after the flagging.

    +1, order 2 hookers and get a free gun!

    Backpage is laid out just like craigslist, narrow search results by state or city. There are quite a few ammo sellers on the Colorado backpage and I've seen various pistols/rifles/shotguns be posted up. And the ads stay up, I don't believe there is a way to "flag" them.

    If you're in the midwest, check out midwestguntrader.com

    If you're in FL check out TampaGunTrader.com

    They are all over, but very much so regional. I have done 3 transaction via them and just meet in gunshops to do so.
