    so Craigslist sucks they flag you for gun posts.
    armslist is OK.
    anyone know any other sites?

    gunauction.com, competitor site to gunbroker. Used to be auctionarms.

    HOWEVER, unless you have a FFL, any firearm made after 1898 has to be shipped TO a FFL in your home state. Most of them DO charge for receiving a firearm.

    I like cruising local gun shops. Occasionally one will "jump out at me" and follow me home. Of course, always register your buys--that way "Sam" can tax them at some point--or worse.

    The best way to find a gun to trade is to get involved with the community. Go to the range! Talk to people...

    Depending on where you live, there can be local classifieds just for guns. Midwestguntrader.com is one I used to use a LOT.

    There is a site for FTF sales/trades in Texas called "Texas Gun Trader". I believe there are similar sites for other states. You might try googling it with your state inserted.

    Check online and see if you have a local "backpage.com" it is like Craigslist but has category called Sporting Equipment that is mostly local ads for firearms. I have bought a number of guns on Tucsonbackpage.com

    yeah i use armslist.com, pretty decent site. i dont use craigslist as 1: tos says no posts about weapons [though hunting bows can be found on there] and 2: far too many people flake or no show, or dont read the entire post.

    Backpage.com is pretty active in my area and is basically a Craigslist clone. Go to it select your state etc then on the bottom left go to sporting goods and you can post guns there. Like I said though its pretty active out here in the Las Vegas area but when I lived in Michigan nobody used it.
