    For those that are unaware, there is a great site for us gun owners/fans called ArmsList
    It is like Craigslist, but for guns, ammo, accessories, and related items (I've seen cars, bags, knives etc)
    I have used it and purchased some .223 ammunition for my rifle from there and will hopefully get more soon off of the site.
    It is broken down by state, and then, if you choose, you can sort by metropolitan areas/cities.

    Just want to help out my fellow new friends on this website! (this one, not armslist, I dont know anyone personally on that website except the guy I met at the gas station for the American Eagle .223 for 50c a round....not like it was before, but sure beat $1 each many people want!)

    +1 on armslist. I was introduced to it recently during a craiglist transaction. Gotta love these free online classifieds.

    I've not had any luck buying on armslist, but I've been able to sell some stuff at a price that was actually fair to both parties, without any ridiculous low ball offers.

    I have had some luck with Armslist but only buying so far,do you mean to suggest actually getting rid of things too?!?

    As with any site these days goods deal are few and far between.

    I have also been scammed into fake meetings to buy things there several times and for the life of me I have no idea what someone gets out of this type of crap?

    Be aware if a deal seems to good to be true with Armslist, there are several scammers there posting the same guns multiple times. I'd only buy if I could do a face to face transaction.

    On that same note, I recently ran in to a seller who posted two different pictures of a Glock supposedly for sale. The more the conversations carried on, the less confidence I had in the seller. These days it would pay to have a friend ride shotgun. The combo of a gun and cash in the same transaction could be dangerous. With local shops running low on guns and ammo, many items are being offered by individuals and usually are overpriced. Really buyer beware right now.

    I can't hardly find anyone on armslist whose selling anything I want close to me. I've been considering using tradiator.com to make transactions safer. Anyone have any experience with them?

    At times, I have had great success using Arms List. But there are also many scammers using that site. I have gone on some long distance traveling wild goose chases meeting people that never show up. Yes there are some that post the same guns over and over that ever sell them. So be careful and Good Luck.

    I use Armslist on a fairly regular basis, but for selling my goods. I haven't bought anything off there as most people have their prices jacked way up and my area's listing are flooded with AR's, AK's, and SKS's that I don't have much interest in.

    Here in Arizona, private sales are a regular thing with nothing more than an i.d. check and a verbal confirmation of legal ownership status needed. It's how I've bought most of my firearms. I always bring my best friend (marksman) along for backup.

    If you try and trade your firearm on there, be prepared for some interesting trade offers. I had a gentleman that breeds dogs offer me a 8 week old golden retriever for an AR lower. I would've have taken him up on it if I didn't have two dogs already lol.

    +1 on armslist. Bought ammo on there and a buddy sold a gun. Good site.
