Default How about an FTF Flea Market?

I was just thinking that maybe we could clean out our holster drawers, safes, shops and storage areas and sell the extra gun stuff we have accumulated, but no longer have need for.

We could set a time limit of a week for the thing to run, then close it down. My thinking is that we could donate a percentage of sales to FTF to help defray operating costs.

Maybe do it as an annual thing?

Watcha' think?

I like the idea.
I think a special forum should be made just for this occasion. Have the forum closed when the flea market is not open. Either that or you could just delete the forum until next year/however many times this will be done.

+1 to OP

Sounds good to me. I am always looking for some more crap I don't really need. You can never have enough gun stuff!!!

Let's see if the idea gets enough support and then we can approach Mount Olympus with the idea.

I'm up for it but I don't have much stuff I can get rid of. Might have a few bucks I can burn though.

I like this idea, but how do you envision the nuts and bolts? How will it run, technically?

I guess you could do the thread, evrybody with something could post pics, and transactions could be carried out through PMs.

Or is there a better way?
