Hello folks,
Unfortunately lack of funds have forced me to sell my beloved Sig 229 and I am looking for the best way to post it localy in the Phoenix area.
Anyone have a good idea ? I was logged in to Arizonashooting .com but i can not post on the sales forum as my post count is low.

Thanks

I think it only takes 10 posts before you can put a for sale item on azshooting. Most folks can do that in an hour or two, max.

What about Craigslist?

Admin won't release the secret sauce for access to the azshooting classifieds.

Participate in a few threads, ask some questions and pretty soon you will have access though.

You can always post in the EE here, just put AZ only in your title if you don't want to ship.

A June Crossroads show in Mesa June 27-28, and Phoenix July 11-12. Priced right, it should go.

I know it took me 10 posts on azshooting but my 10 posts were something of substance. I wouldn't be surprised if it was 10 posts with a minimum of x number of words to unlock the classifieds. I haven't used them yet and it was never my intention posting to solely gain access but now that I have it I plan on using it.

do what you need to ,the prices are so high on azshooting that anyone posting a pistol at a half way resonable price will look like they are giveing the deal of a lifetime ,and will sell it the same day .

Thanks guys,

Just for a price check what would you say a very good shape 40 S/W Sig 229R with case, 2 12 rd mags and belt clip would go for.
I have a hard time posting to forums when i have nothing to say so the arizonashooting.com site may take a little while.

Provideing the weapon is as you say in Verry good condition $450.00 is fair . as all of us know the finish on the aluminum frame Sig's is tough to keep perfect a few nicks and small scratches are normal .good luck and I'm sure you will miss it as the P229 is a great pistol ,and in a great caliber . sounds like some lucky SOB is going to get a very nice pistol .

I seem to recall that Criagslist does a search and destroy on any posts having to do with firearm sales. You'll see them occasionally, but I believe they are against their AUP.

There have been some home invasions that have come to users of back page concerning firearms but of course it does not make the news just like all the illegal alien home invasions . Be careful and meet somewhere other than your home to do the transaction .
