    I am trying to reply to people with items for sale on forums like m4carbine.net and ar15.com but I am always told I don't have permission, but I am registered? What am I missing?

    Many forums require a minimum number of posts before you can use their classified sections. SOME forums only allow items to be posted for sale, but don't allow responses in those threads only PM's to the poster.

    The post count thing prevents "drive by" sellers who haven't established any reputation on the forum and who may be less trustworthy.

    The "no reply" option is in use on one of the firearms forums i frequent; i understand it was to keep the classifieds short and uncluttered.

    OR, they could be discriminating against Robotkind. ;)

    Excellent answer, Orange. That's the way it works on many forums I frequent.

    Dude honestly it is a sick dream of mine. Imagine a whole parking lot full of zombies wanting to eat you. You're on top of a roof, AR-15 in hand and 1000's upon 1000's of rounds. You have to kill them all to progress to your next spot. BOOM! HEADSHOT! DOESN'T THAT SOUND FUN?!!!!
