    Tennessee Gun Owners Trading Post

    Updated August 14, 2023


    Terms and Conditions

    By using the Trading Post, you agree and affirm that TNGunOwners.com (TGO) is an "Information Service Provider" as defined by Federal Law and that TGO is not the seller of ANY of the firearms or other items listed here.  Listings are posted by third parties.  TGO's role is similar to that of a newspaper which publishes classified ads.  Our knowledge of a transaction is limited to the information contained in an item's listing and user registration databases.


    Rules for Using the Trading Post

    1. Observe all Federal, State and Local laws at all times. 
    2. Clearly and accurately describe the item that you are offering.  Disclose any flaws, any blemishes, any problems.  Provide clear photos when possible.
    3. Do not offer items on behalf of a friend or other third-party.  Only list items that you own and are in possession of.
    4. Do not make "testing the water" types of posts.  Only post if you are ready to sell or trade.
    5. Do not agree to buy or take possession of an item unless you have all of the resources (money, items for trade, etc.) necessary to complete the deal.
    6. Complete any agreed-upon transactions within seven (7) business days unless both parties agree, in writing on TGO, that an extension of this deadline is acceptable.
    7. All transactions are final, and all items are provided as-is and without warranty unless the seller/trader says otherwise.
    8. Do not make any replies designed to interfere with the sale or trade of an item.  If you wish to haggle, do it privately with the seller. No one cares what you think about the price or availability of an item.
    9. Don't be a dick.  Access to the Trading Post may be revoked if you fail to follow the rules, fail to follow the law, or fail to be honest and ethical in your dealings
    10. Haggle privately.  If you are a new member and can't send a private message, just post a public reply and ask the author of the ad to contact you.  Haggling does not belong in public.  It is no one's business what you think an item is worth.  That is between you and the seller.



    Suggestions for Buyers and Sellers

    • When agreeing to meet in person, put safety first.  Trust your instincts!  Consider only meeting at a public place with surveillance video (police stations are great for this!) and only meeting during daylight hours.  Try not to meet alone, but also be clear in advance if you will be bringing a friend as backup.  No one likes to be surprised by the presence of other people if it wasn't expected.
    • Check the TGO Trader Feedback of the buyer / seller before you commit to a transaction with them.  A person having "No Feedback" is not necessarily a bad thing but watch out for people with negative ratings for past deals.
    • Scammers love to operate in private.  Be extra careful if someone with little or no public content approaches you privately regarding an ad that you posted.  Consider telling them to post their reply publicly where the moderators can help keep an eye on things.
    • Every online payment service has their own list of things you may not use their service to pay for.  Failing to follow their policies could result in your account with them being terminated, funds frozen or loss of buyer/seller protection.  Be sure you know what they allow.
    • Zelle, Venmo, PayPal Friends & Family and other services may not offer much (or any) payment protection.  We recommend cash for in person transactions and PayPal Goods & Services for any non-restricted sales of things that are being shipped.  Again, be sure that you know what the payment service provides and allows and be sure to check buyer/seller feedback here on TGO.  Be willing to pay a little more for insurance from the payment service or shipper.


    Why Can't I Post New Threads?

    Are you a Benefactor member?  As a thank you for supporting TGO, we typically give our Benefactors elevated permissions in some of our forums.  When you buy a Benefactor membership, you're paying for a media service (TGO) similar to paying for a magazine subscription.  You aren't buying the "right" to buy or sell anything on TGO.  We merely make those areas available to you as a Thank You for helping us provide this forum to the public.
