I know it's not "allowed", but is it legal in general to sell ammo through sites like that? Once and a while I see something good on there, but don't want to risk anything illegal.

In IL all we have to do is put FOID in the title and we can sell anything. I guess it is the only benefit to having to have a FOID card.

I get my stuff taken off all the time, stuff that is NOT ILLEGAL or against their rules (i.e. 870 stocks). You can always try Armslist It's pretty good, I've used it a few times.

You've been on ARFCom for years, and you're not sure selling ammo online is legal?

Yes, as a general rule, it is. The communist states may have issue with it, but in free America it's fine, and the fact that this question need be asked concerns me.

You have to believe the buyer is legally old enough to buy the ammo, and have no reasonable cause to believe they are a felon. If CL has an issue, they can fuck themselves. Worst they can do is ban your IP.

Careful with CL though... Lots of thieves, nutcases and jackasses.

I got a nice Colt Trooper off Craigslist. I called the number. A guy answers, only to find out he's one street over from me.
"Come on over and take a look".

But there are flagging Nazis that remove any ad with a hint of firearm content...

Ya that's pretty much what I thought. Never done it before, so just wanted to be careful ya know? With all the crazy laws in this country, I wouldn't be surprised if something like this was illegal.

If you are making the ammo to sell, you need a manufacturer's license.

Stolen Suzuki Samurai's and pirated software are fine... But don't dare sell anything that is perfectly legal but offends hippies.

Backpage.com is great for gun & ammo sales.

Fuck craigslist.

There's a guy in my area who gets pretty creative with his gun listings, so that they don't get flagged. I think his last one was "used laser sight mounting platforms".

Here ya go! The one that cracks me up is "pet animal parts!"

Advertising weapons or related items is right up there with child porn as far as they're concerned.

Partial list of items for sale and services the advertisement of which is not permitted on craigslist:

* Obscene material or child pornography.
* Offer or solicitation of illegal prostitution.
* Weapons and related items, including but not limited to firearms, disguised, undetectable or switchblade knives, martial arts weapons, scopes, silencers, ammunition, ammunition magazines, BB guns, tear gas or stun guns.
* Items issued to United States Armed Forces that have not been disposed of in accordance with Department of Defense demilitarization policies.
* Fireworks, including but not limited to "safe and sane" fireworks or any destructive devices or explosives.
* Controlled substances or illegal drugs, substances and items used to manufacture controlled substances and drug paraphernalia.
* Alcohol or tobacco products.
* Prescription drugs and medical devices, including but not limited to prescription or contact lenses, defibrillators, hypodermic needles or hearing aids.
* Nonprescription drugs that make false or misleading treatment claims or treatment claims that require FDA approval.
* Blood, bodily fluids or body parts.
* Household pets of any kind including but not limited to dogs, cats, primates, cage birds, rodents, reptiles, amphibians, fish. Re-homing with small adoption fee OK
* Pet animal parts, blood, or fluids - including but not limited to stud/breeding service
