Hello fellow Blue-ID Mafia, welcome to the Great State of Indiana, and INGO. We are a bit of a different site here on the Webernets. We are a discussion forum with a classifieds (not classified ), opposed to arms list or gun broker.
We (the members of INGO) are very protective of the site. It is a great means of communication, particularly when our elected officials need reminded that the gun owners are paying attention. This is also a rarity on the Interwebz: many of us know each other in the real world. We might be a big dysfunctional family, but it's our big dysfunctional family.
"Come for the classifieds, stay for the discussion" ain't a bad thing. Stick around, ya might like it.
INGO is a gun forum first and foremost.
The classifieds was a side note.
When people trade, buy, barter with each other; the way they get a feel for the other feller is the interactions in the forum. First thing I do when buying/selling is check out the other guys writing, answers, morals. I get this from seeing how they have acted on the forum during their time here. We get a plethora of people that only want something shiny in the Classies, or to ditch some abused piece of iron uncle Jed left them in the will. So, with new members goes a watching when they are new. Best thing you can do is be a contributer of good posts. Don't hint at buying and selling till you either have 50 quality posts, or have got your site supporter badge. AND by the way CONGRATULATIONS! Needless to say, ball busting of the rambunctious ones slows their roll and checks out their attitudes. This is a great forum. Buy and sale till your heart is content. Just go a little easy till you get a feel for everyone.
You are welcome, but you did start on an awkward foot. This site is primarily a gun forum and community and not an Armslist replacement. People are very protective of that. We value those that contribute primarily via posting as that gives us a much better way to get to know you first. It works well to minimize issues with bad traders. That said, you are following the rules. If you post and interact with people instead of just trading, it will be better in the long run.
You should PM the moderators and ask that you post count be bumped to 50 so that you can send/receive PMs now that you are an official site supporter.
Welcome to INGO. Sorry for the less-than ideal welcome.
Welcome! I think you have been chastised enough for your first post. Please hang around. As said earlier this place is great and occassionally infuriating. Basiclly good people talking about good things.
