    I think I understand where you are coming from. I will say, as a new member, that I did find this site looking for my 1st purchase in 20 years. I prefer to buy things gently used, it's just my nature. I am shocked how hard it is to connect with people for this purpose. I do not know the tendancies of people who strive to shut sites like this down. I do like being able to ask experienced users their opinion of things. I did donate so I could purchase, i am impatient at times. I do feel than ALOT of the rules for this forum are very different from other forums. I assume that is in response to the possibility of issues i am not looking for. Do not take it as a complaint, just an observation. I should add that i did not read 100% of the responses, I am mostly commenting on the 1st post.

    You didn't miss much. Some snarky comments. Noobs getting butt hurt. Pictures of food. Just the usual.

    The key point is this: The reason you came here is not why the rest of us are here.

    In reality this isnt a classifieds site like armslist. Its a chat board with a classified section that is a perk to participating members. Its intention (especially with the 50 post rule) is that you can trade here safely because you are able to feel out (not feel up, sorry. That black eye is healing nicely) your buyer/seller knowing its not some total rando on the interwebz that may or may not screw you, shank you, etc. Yeah, it can happen, but its MUCH less likely here.

    Welcome, we hope you join us and stick around. We're a motley bunch that are fun to hang around if I do say so myself. Heck, we even have meetups to hang and chat, eat, shoot, etc.

    And many of us know each other in real life from this place and have made lifelong friends.
