    Is it just using paypal and not saying what it's for (ie firearm related)? I've seen several of these in the wtt/wts/wtb sections and have never heard of it.

    just curious.

    Usually it's just a name on the transaction that would not lead you to the subject. IE: AR15 Firearms=ARF Corporation.

    Paypal is anti-gun so the short story is anything firearm related flags their system and locks out your account. Best way to use paypal discretely is generic and no descriptions, at least that's what I've heard... :wink:

    Basically keep your trap shut when dealing with anything gun related. I wouldn't even bother with any clever names eluding to what is being sold. I just leave the message blank if I can.

    I've seen more then a few people have their accounts locked for gun related business.

    if the evil g-u-n word is used paypal will not only lock your account permanently --- but keep any funds in the account for 180 days......:(

    A better plan might be to just boycott paypal all together. Armed with the knowledge that paypal is anti-gun, along with the information at paypalsucks.com I will no longer be using paypal, and am closing my account as soon as I get done typing this message.

    It is a nice thought, but most would rather use paypal than getting a money order and mailing it. I just don't want to wait for that most of the time. If it is a personal transaction where the other person can't just charge my credit card, paypal seems to be the only other viable option that is quick and easy.

    I use and will continue to use PayPal.
    In the world of sue anyone for anything, it is no wonder they have the policies that they have.
    I buy gun related items on eBay (yes eBay) quite often, and pay for them with PayPal.
    OH MY GOD>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>:rolleyes:
    Using PayPal for anything isn't that hard, just use common sense, if you have any..:confused:
    When yall find a safe PayPal type service for gun lovers, let me know..:roll:
