I've got two rifles, an AR upper, a 1911, and some ammo to sell. Does Florida Gun Trader get a lot of use here in FL? Is it a pain in the ass or fairly easy to use? TIA.

Get ready for spammers and low ballers. I have sold lots of items there but I've also got a bunch of spam emails. You can also try armslist but Florida gun trader is good once you weed out all the BS since it seems they have the most traffic

I have never had any issues using it and have had good success. Good luck.

This (full disclosure; I haven't used it in a couple years so it could be worse). I've always asked a reasonable price and have sold items very quickly with no issues. Same when buying.

I have used it a bunch and it works good. You will get a lot of lowballers and trade offers, but eventually you will get the offer or close to what you want. All depends on how long you want to wait and how good your deal is.

Everything I've ever listed on there, I've sold within a few days for a reasonable price. You will get lowball offers and unwanted trade offers, but a legitimate offer usually comes along pretty quick.

I have sold a few things there and fortunately wound up being people I know from other boards. You will also get some scammers and criminals trying to buy and I only sell to someone with a ccw and b.o.s.. There have been a few instances where some people have been threatened and harassed by a few of the idiots. I responded to one ad a little while back wanting to inquire about something and the guy started sending me threatening messages. If you sign up for the sight, there is a spot on there where you can choose where the messages go- to your email or to the website mail. I chose website mail and answer questions through there before sending messages from my email account,(although they still come to your home email account but you don't have to answer them from there). I also don't give any of my personal info. out either in an ad-like a phone number. There are some people out there who just want to give you a hard time and ruin it for the rest of us. From my experience,Armslist is just as bad.

i buy almost all of my rifles from fgt. that's about a dozen complete rifles a year. i also buy ammo lots, uppers and lowers, so yes, it does get a lot of use. you learn quick enough, who's legit, and who isn't. easiest way to pick up stuff "off the books", for my money...

I've bought a few things off of it.

Tried working deals with some sellers but most seem to over value what they are selling.

I'm not against paying a fair price or even what they are asking for, if its worth it.
