After discussing ways to get the word out for local exchanges in the other thread, this seems to be the frontrunner. I'm trying to get an idea about how much serious interest there is for this... if you'd be interested in potentially putting something in for local sale, local want ads, or local trades, please chime in.

count me in, I'm a gun whore from the word go... and I don't buy used guns sight un-seen so it'd be great for me.

Looks like we've got enough interest to try it out for a while and see what happens. Any preference whether or not this is run thour private E-mails or the ARFcom mail server (if possible)?

Be looking around for items you want to post. Please divide them into three categories to make it simple the first time:
1. Firearms
2. Firearms Accessories/Firearms Related
3. Other

More organizational details to follow later...

It would be a lot simpler for me to do it through private E-mail simply because of my familiarity with the system I've got. No need to make it more complex than it has to be.

I'm headed to New Mexico at the end of this week for a few days, so I'll plan to pursue it when I get back. I'll send it out before the end of the month.

To get on the list: IM me your personal E-mail address here at ARFcom, and I'll put you on the list for the initial mailout. You'll get a personal Email from me with the subject line "ARFcom List". When you get this, you can send me your list (this will allow me to cut-and-paste into the big mailout), and I will compile things and send them back out when we get enough in to justify it.

IM sent! Sounds like we are moving along with this. I believe I have something for the Sell/Trade section already!

Count me in if this works out - seems like I've always got a few to sell or trade.

IM IN, GETTERDONE!

I would like to see this.

I've signed up seven plus myself so far. Hardshell, I haven't gotten an IM of Email address from you yet, if you're interested.

As people IM me, I am sending confirmation. If you've IM'd me and not gotten a confirmation, please IM again.
Please refrain from sending your lists with your IM- I need it to come as an Email for formatting reasons.... you know who you are!

This looks like it could be a lot of fun to me. I know that somebody here in AL has the stuff I'm looking to buy and needs the stuff I want to sell or give away. Meeting at the FOP, etc. is a lot more appealing to me than buying sight-unseen again.

Hi Hobbit,

Is it too early in the set up to send items for sale for the list?
Link Posted: 1/10/2006 5:40:29 PM EDT
It's a little early yet for a couple of reasons-
I'm still getting a lot of responses (five just today), and
I'm going to New Mexico at the end of the week and won't be able to do anything until I get back.

When the responses drop off/I'm back in the state, I'll send out the official "Whatcha Got" Email. It looks like this is getting pretty big.

If it's not too late, would you mind removing my ammo listing? I figured the issue out (lack of lube) and it runs fine now.

BB- Not a problem, as I'm only accepting information in the form of E-mails only. I'll be compiling the list tonight and doing final prep.
