That site has been off the air for about a month now.  Does anyone know what's up?  Does he need help fixing the thing or something?

Yes I'm aware that the EE exists but I don't like dealing with the muppets here who can't be bothered to read your ad when you say "local sales only"

It got mentioned in another thread. Apparently it's been replaced;

I talked a guy in Lees Summit that said he helped build Midwest back in the day and that the software they used then was out dated.  Then who ever took it over didn't do any updates or maintenance.  I guess the server finally crashed, and they didn't want to spend the money to fix it up.  It had gone down hill the last year in my opinion.  So now some of the old timers asked this guy in Lees Summit to build a new site.  So that is where https://showmeguns.com came from.

That is just what I heard from this guy I was buying a gun from.  Is it true?  Who knows?  Just sharing what I heard and that there is at least another resource for buying, selling and trading.

The Midwest Gun Trader website is still up. Looks like someone just needs to reboot the server. About a month ago...
