    GENERAL: The Classified Ad section is offered as a FREE service to FORUM members. This is intended to benefit individual FORUM Members wishing to sell or trade individual items from their collections. The Classifieds are not to be used by persons obtaining goods at wholesale for resale at a higher price.

    By posting a classified ad, or purchasing an item advertised for sale, you agree to abide by these rules.

    DELETION: All Classifieds are subject to deletion without notice.

    RISKS: All sales and purchases are at the risks of the individuals involved. Make sure you are 100% clear on what you are buying--ask plenty of questions if there is any uncertainty. Please be certain that you make safe and intelligent secure payment arrangements. The AccurateShooter FORUM is not responsible/liable for any sales that go uncompensated. We are also not responsible/liable for any item advertised for sale in this area, nor do we warrant the veracity of any statements made in any advertisement.

    GENERAL RULES -- Welching

    Sellers -- Be 100% sure that you want to sell the item and are satisfied with the selling price. If you back out of a deal AFTER you've agreed to sell it to a particular buyer, your account MAY BE LOCKED!

    Buyers -- Be 100% sure that you can financially afford to purchase an item before offering to do so. If you back out of a deal AFTER you've agreed to buy from a particular seller, your account MAY BE LOCKED!

    A. SELLERS' DUTIES

    1. All sellers must have a complete Forum profile, including City, State, and VALID email address.

    2. All sellers must have their email and private message options enabled.

    3. All sellers must mark sold items as "SOLD".

    4. All sellers must disclose if the item for sale is posted on other classifieds and state that the item is "subject to prior sale."

    5. All sellers must provide his/her actual name, current phone number, and address to buyer on request.

    6. All sellers must ship the sold goods in timely fashion upon receiving payment. Sellers are advised to include insurance for items valued $250.00 or higher. Insurance is not mandatory, but it is strongly recommended.

    RULE VIOLATIONS
    Any seller who uses deceptive photos, lies about key components, or fails to disclose major defects will have his advert deleted without notice and is subject to being banned from the Forum forever.

    Any member selling/trading any item,s) on this board who accepts monies from another member without sending out the items purchased will be permanently banned from the Forum.

    B. BUYERS' DUTIES

    1. A post indicating unconditional acceptance of the Seller's offer can create a binding contract. Buyer is then obliged to pay for the product according to mutually-agreed payment terms.

    2. In the case of the sale of a firearm, Buyers agree to comply with all applicable Federal and local laws, including shipping to an FFL where required.

    C. PROHIBITED PRODUCTS (It is against the Rules to list these products for sale)

    1. Damaged or bulged barrels (unless they are sold only as salvage metal and are clearly described as "not to be used with live ammunition".)

    2. Hand-Loaded ammunition that has been loaded or reloaded by a private party (e.g. NOT factory ammo).

    3. Hand-mixed powders of any kind.

    4. Any actions, rifles, or sound suppressors with damaged or obscured serial numbers.

    5. Scopes with broken internals or broken lenses.

    RULE VIOLATIONS
    Any buyer who refuses, without good cause, to make payment for goods received in satisfactory and "as advertised" condition is subject to being banned from the FORUM.


    C. COMMERCIAL CLASSIFIEDS

    1. The FORUM For Sale section is not open to Commercial Businesses, unless such businesses actively participate in our banner advertising program (or donate goods for site benefit auctions). This rule shall be enforced diligently.

    2. Paid Sponsors and advertisers may post Classifieds. However, Commercial Classifieds must be posted ONLY in the designated Commercial Classifieds topic area.

    THIS CLASSIFIEDS SECTION IS FOR PRIVATE SALES FROM OUR SITE MEMBERS OR FOR OUR SITE SPONSORS. If you are in the business of selling shooting-related products and wish to post items for sale in this section, please contact us about becoming a site sponsor.

    3. Small "one-man shops" who have a few self-made products can use the classifieds, but we reserve the right to pull these ads if we think the system is being abused.

    RULE VIOLATIONS
    Commercial advertisements which violate our rules will be deleted without notice. Repeat offenders may have their Forum posting privileges blocked.

    Are sellers required to post a price with their ad?

    Thanks.

    I have sold 2 items on the Accurate Shooter site and have more to sell. How do I go about sending some money to pay you for this service. As of this morning I have sold $250.00 worth of brass. I am a "newbie" as to selling on line but would like to stay in favor with you all and continue to get rid of "stuff" I no longer want or need. I feel that I am pricing it fair and it would look better in another reloading area than mine. Please take me to school on thia. Thank you, Richard ramsey, Westerville, Ohio

    Click the "Donate to Site" button in middle of this page. Two inches down from top. This takes you to a page which explains how to send a check or use PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to donate.

    How long do I have to wait for payment before I can resist a item? I had a buyer state he would take multiple items 10 days ago, I have not received funds nor will he respond to my multiple PM's. I have seen the buyer online many times and he won't respond.........

    I don't want negative feedback because he won't keep his work.

    Carackerbacks, after 10 days and he has not responded, I would think he is not going to buy the items. I don't think your the one who will receive negative feedback. Just go to the classified rules in the main Forum Section, and the rules should be clearly listed.

    I would go ahead and relist them, JMO

    PS: The First Post in the below Forum gives all the rules: http://forum.accurateshooter.com/threads/official-classifieds-rules.3787251/

    Thanks for your opinion, I looked in the rules but there is no specific deadline for payment.

    This is the site I go to 99% of the time. The absolute best and most honest people on here. When you can come to a site and ask World Class Shooters and Gunsmiths questions and get an answer its tough to put a price on that. The way I look at it the donations I make from time to time are one of the best investments I could make, also the classifieds adds are horrible because they keep my bank account empty and my wife in my ear. Seriously though please if you can donate a little bit from one sale send it down range. Where else are you gonna go to pawn your goods to fund other projects in a safe environment. Be able to purchase rifles and equipment at a great cost all while having an endless fountain of knowledge "learn to use the search feature".

    I just noticed I get a message that says I have insufficient privileges to post in the classifieds. I have posted items in the past and I'm not sure what has changed. Can you please tell me what has happened and what I need to do?

    It looks like that is how it is. But, where else can you make unlimited sales for 20.00/year or 6 for free? This site is not free for the Forum Boss, be willing to support it if you use it. Too many people feel entitled.

    www.accuratereloading.com is free and has no paid advertising. www.calguns.net is also free.

    I personally sell stuff here only to liquidate items for older folks who are not computer savvy at well below market prices as a favor to them.

    To each his own though, its his forum.
