    Part of the reason for the rule, to keep it from becoming Ebay or Craigslist. This is a forum first and foremost WITH a classified section on the side. Stick around its a good forum not just a good classified.

    Really? Any "good" forum would have some type of member time rules for their For Sale forums, as they should, some what good protection for both seller and buyer. I know myself I would never buy or sell to/from any one new/low post count to a forums, just no telling if the person is on the up and up. Yes I understand time and post count isn't the greatest insurance, but it sure helps they have time and post in, at least you can read their post and "try" to get a feel for what type of person they are. Just my 2 cents, maybe not needed, well, because I am new too, but not trying to buy or sell here either.

    Do you mind telling us what forums you are saying doesn't have a member time and or post count rule to sell/buy?

    You might be on other forums but you weren't on the best. We are a family over here, frankly the rule to to keep people from coming here and wanting to use us as a news paper classified. Stick around post join the forum join the family. We are well worth it, most of us like the rule and we asked for it. Don't like it? That's the way it is..


    Welcome.

    1911.com,ar15.com,pbnation.com,focusfanatics.com,mnfocus.com

    as far as the best and being a family this one cant compare to 1911.com
    i think its a stupid rule and doesnt protect anyone just keeps people from maybe finding a really good deal. if people are worried about someones character and getting ripped over on an internet forum maybe they should try and do a deal over the internet if they are paranoid about it. ive done 100's of online sales,buys and trades and have never had a problem with people ever. i also feel websites with post counters are only good for giving other memebers "status" on the forum and make them feel like its more there forum and they are a better memeber.

    Using pbnation as a reference for good forum conduct and experience is not *exactly* a good idea.

    I'd dare say 95% of us here, have never had a problem with their XDs either.
    I'd also dare say 95% of the posts on this entire forum have nothing to do with XD pistols..
    Hell, I don't even own an XD anymore, I sold all 4 of them, 3 on this forum.
    If you don't like the rules, you're welcome move on.

    I tried to welcome you, but it is what it is..:neutral:

    LOL! I check out that site when I'm selling paintball gear to fund my new firearm addiction - it's ridiculous over there.
