Is Armslist trying to go under


Recommended Posts

Am I missing something here? First you must pay to advertise or contact someone and now I have no filters so I have to go through 50 dealer ads to see private sales. Makes me just quit looking. I have started writing down numbers of people no see in there often and just text them when I want something.

YES, you are indeed missing the filter option. Its just down the page on the right side. You can remove the 50 or so dealer ads that show up like clockwork daily.

Sounds frustrating.  We've tried to keep it simple here and it's working so far.  🙂

Armslist screwed themselves when they went to charging just to answer an ad. I can see a charge to sell, but to buy is ridiculous.  🤬

The Memphis Armslist  used to easily run 15-16 pages or more of guns for sale. Now its maybe half that and slowly shrinking. The only ones selling are the ads where the seller is smart enough to put a phone number in them.  Its seems that ads without phone numbers just sit there for a very long time.  I've seen several guns I was interested in, but not enough to pay a fee just to contact the seller.  🙄

Ok. I have now went over three weeks and cannot find a filter button anymore. Is it me or is it gone. I even went to the main site and pulled up a state. All I got was the entire state listings with no way to get to the cities. Any Arms list guys on here?

Note the red circle. 

Not sure whats happening on your end. They even recently brought back the power search.

The power search is a nice feature, but you have the same problem as on craigslist searching for a car. Sellers don't put in the information on the item, so all you are doing is eliminating lots of ads that likely have what you want. Most sellers don't even give an effective description or title either. I don't know what the deal is on there. Looks like if you were going to pay to be able to list stuff you would make it easier to find it.
