I don't think every item is overpriced. Seen some good ones and they go quick.

Likely some folks have made it to pope & young by bumps on their overpriced items. I'll hit the back button on those, but do actually check to see if anyone ever shows interest.

I do find it odd that some folks will advertise in the campfire section.

In general, bumps don't bother me. Maybe cause I don't have the time to get on tbh 12 times a day.

This is true! I believe El Jefe has come close to deleting it a few times.

I don't mind the bumps, ttt, etc. What I'd like to see is:

1. categories would help separate what I'd be interested in,

2. Close your listing(s) when it sells!!! Either that or do your ads on CL.

Second....the classifieds on this site is Tire Kicker Central. You have to be almost giving something away here before anyone buys it.....and even then itís a maybe. Combine that with the fact that almost every firearm listed (used) is priced higher than it can be found new online. Itís a joke.
Man I don't know what guns you've been looking at but I bought a Benelli Ethos $700 less than retail,and a Browning 25-06 with euro glass $500 less in the same day!
I've bought,and sold a mountain of stuff off of the classifieds,and never had a hiccup.Just sold that Potbelly blind this morning as a matter of fact.

That reminds me.Better close the thread

Same.... and when I do sell stuff .. I get what I consider fair prices for it. Sure you have your lowballers but as a whole itís a good experience.

I've done many deals on this classified and have never met a stranger. Usually end up taking for a couple of hours and leave there with a fellowship that was worth more than money. Try to do that on craigslist.

Agree with the categories idea. That would be very nice.


Iíve never had anything but a good experience selling on the classifieds. Met some good people and will look forward to meeting a lot more.

Some items take a bit longer than others but they all eventually sell. Have seen a few impatient folks but for the most part itís been a good experience.

I did not mean for this to turn into a overpriced vs. under priced thread. Was just curious about the bumps and TTT's cluttering things up. On another site I visit it is not a huge mod lift, bump or ttt a thread and it is deleted without any PM or notification, works great.

I am grateful for the free classifieds on this site. I do not have to spend an hour researching someone before doing a deal or meeting them to make sure I am not robbed!

Well dang, I cant close this thread!
