Price Inquiry Threads Update

Recently, we’ve had a lot of “How Much is My Gun Worth†threads here in the Long Guns Forum.* While this isn’t against the rules per se, selling a firearm outside of the Trading Post is. *The majority of these are usually from Non-Benefactors, and the Admin/Mod’s suspicion is that members are trying to skirt the rule of requiring a member of TGO to be a Benefactor to post “For Sale/Trade†ads in the Classifieds Section; so when looking at certain posts in the Long Guns Forum where a member is asking for a price, sometimes this can turn into a “For Sale†ad (intentional or not…)


The truth is, if you are intelligent enough to create an account on TGO, you should know that all you have to do to get an accurate up-to-date price on any firearm, is SEARCH.* Google is very helpful (try their “Shopping†search, it will give you pricing information from several gun websites and I’ve found it fairly accurate).* Not enough? Try GunBroker.com, GunsAmerica.com, or AuctionArms.com; all these sites show what the going rate is for a particular firearm. If you think those auction sites are overpriced, then subtract $100.* The truth is, firearms pricing is all over the board these days.*


Going forward, all Price Inquiry threads will be monitored closely, and if they look suspicious, Infractions will be given and the thread will be deleted.* In legitimate Inquiry threads, once the OP’s (Original Poster) question has been answered, the thread will be locked to prevent misuse.


We appreciate your cooperation with this matter. Please don’t hesitate to PM me if you have any questions.
