    Howdy from Dallas!

    Stumbled across this site. Very informative! Thanks to you all
    I was going to list this pistol for sale, but got a message saying I couldn't post there until I had 25 posts. Can anyone explain why that is?
    Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum!

    Member's selling individual personal items (non-commercial) are allowed in the "Member Buy, Sell, Trade" forum once a member has made 25 or more posts. All thread titles should include the state where these items are located. Items listed here must not be listed for sale elsewhere or on the Internet, including auction sites or any other forums.
    As I understand that is done because this is an informational, not a sales forum. The "Member Buy Sell" sub-forum is merely an accommodation made to people who have joined this forum to exchange information and opinions.

    I'm guessing it is because you haven't earned that privilege yet.

    Welcome from the South East part of the greatest state...Just a fact.
    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    Welcome...

    from Central Florida!

    You definitely need to read the forum rules to answer your questions.

    See this part...
    Advertising

    Member's selling individual personal items (non-commercial) are allowed in the "Member Buy, Sell, Trade" forum once a member has made 25 or more posts. All thread titles should include the state where these items are located. Items listed here must not be listed for sale elsewhere or on the Internet, including auction sites or any other forums.


    Advertising, for paid sponsors only, is allowed in the "Sponsor Buy, Sell, Trade" forum.

    We do not allow advertising to be embedded within the forum topics, in fairness to our paid sponsors, who help keep this forum operating. Simply mentioning a related business in the course of a thread is in no way restricted as long as it is relevant to the thread and would not be considered obtrusive. We would be happy to place a link to your business website in our "Related Links" area in consideration of a reciprocal link. No other advertising will be allowed within the forum and, when found, will be removed. Please PM or email either 4Nines or bman505 if you have any questions regarding this policy.

    Welcome from Alabama

    As others have said this isn't a forum to buy and sell stuff, and you can't have the item your selling listed on any other forum or website
    Sometimes I wonder who the old man in the mirror is....

    Lord, Grant me a good sword and no need to use it.

    Welcome, the short answer to your question is so that we don't have people just signing up to sell items... That's not what this forum is about.

    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    On sites I moderate posting of anything related to the sale of anything including posting links to other sites is prohibited to help keep spammers from being one-post wonders for the only reason of posting spam. Anything different than just making a regular post including pictures other than in a profile or an icon has to be earned. I can well imagine that's the same basic rule of this site as well. I expect when the title of "new member" goes up to "member" you'll be good to go.
