This probably violates some kind of ARFcom policy, but it would be a neat idea so I figured I'd toss it out there.

Since many of us know each other, and some of us see each other on a somewhat regular basis at the shoots, would it be possible to have a thread of stuff people want to trade or sell?  

I know I have accumulated a lot of gun stuff that I will never use again.  Some of the parts are so small or not worth much, so it would be a waste to sell on the EE and go through the trouble of shipping.  Anyway, maybe we could have a thread before the shoots of stuff we want to get rid of.  If someone sees something they want, they can email the guy and money can be exchanged at the shoot or a trade can be arranged.  Or if they live close enough, they could just meet for the exchange.  

For example, if someone has a case of ammo they will never use, it would be better to sell to a fellow MO shooter at a good price instead of letting it rot in your stockpile or paying a lot to ship it across country.

Just a thought...  

Kpel308: what are your thoughts?

Me? If we did I forgot about it (of course it is 6:55am). It sounds like a good idea but then everyone state will want a EE board.

ETA the right time.

The first annual meeting at the Pioneer High Power program is always a "Swap and Shop" type of meeting.  We can turn one of the MODCC meetings into a Swap and Shop.  No need to post the items here.  Just show up with your junks, and I show up with my junks, and let the dealings begin when we get there.

I Mike I have only been to one or two shoots and those were a while back. I like oz's idea on a trade shoot.

I just listed 2 items for sale (in the FS forums) that I'd like to sell FTF at the shoot.  I think tese this is a good  way to sell some great items that aren't worth shipping, etc.
