    Has it been less than 24 hours: I can *still* add the information via EDITING THE ORIGINAL POST.

    If I'm a buyer and have a question:
    Send a PM.

    Simple.

    As for the OP and his gun day trader blog, why not just start ONE thread on the topic instead of a topic per gun? The people who are interested in following your buy/sell/swap activity can post in that ONE thread and the forum isn't cluttered up with a thread for every single transaction you made, thought about making, might make, have considering considering making, etc.
    1. Brilliant idea, but I'd be afraid to do that now since I know I'm being watched carefully for my next flub.
    2. I want to stay under the radar, till I am forgotten about before my next mistake.

    I have read the rules about the same and have gotten slapped , rightfullly so, for posting info on a "for sale" thread in the classifieds.
    But, I understand that when I do the 24 hour "bump" I can write as much as I like instead of just the word, "bump," or some other code (TTL).
    I have been told this but I'm insecure and afraid for another violation if I make another mistake in my stupidity of application of rule-keeping.

    Also, I have gotten into trouble for starting a thread processing about the selling of a gun/guns, which is not allowed and I had no idea.
    It is OK to ask/process about buying a gun and asking anything, but when selling there are limits (which I want to comply with, b/c despite of my infractions, it was ignorance, and I am a rule-keeper, despite my performance here on this site.

    For example:
    a. I have the above question about processing as much as I want every 24 hrs. in the "bump" in the Classifieds (I want verification that is OK so I don't get banned ).
    b. After you sell a gun, is it OK to have a thread about selling it (I love the storyline/people part of it)?
    I know I can't run a thread about selling a gun during the time of the sale (double-dipping, trying to get around the ban about posting in the Classifieds, of which I am guilty: I thought I'd found a "legal" loophole = WRONG!

    Please have mercy on me in my quest to find the boundaries that are acceptable.
    I have thought of refraining my incessant posting just to avoid any other issues/infractions.
    I have soooo much fun here, learning here (a newb since last May), and feel like I've made some friends, which is a treat when you get to be old and so many of your old friends have moved and you don't like any of your new friends much. (I just can't help myself with my dry eclectic outlier humor, which gets lost in print: which would explain why I don't have any new friends (there I go again!!! ).

    And, let me add, I have been treated with mercy and grace with instructions and warnings (along with the occasional infraction) in my "floundering" on the site, and I appreciate the patience I've been shown.
    I realize my "open" style of communicating is an acquired taste, with my humor and long way of saying the most simple of things.

    Got to get ready for church now where I can openly confess my sins and repent, even been thinking of getting re-baptized to make sure I'm accepted by God and and country and INGO. (really dry humor for the religious )

    Follow up question for clarification:
    I know you can't have a thread about the story of selling a gun.
    But, after the gun is sold, is it OK to have a thread where you tell that story, since it is not ongoing, being sold.

    I'd love to be able to tell who bought it, especially if a member here bought it.

    Or, do I have to put that in original "For Sale" ad (not a bump).

    But if I do that, when people hover their mouse over the title, they would see that it's been marked sold and not open it to see if I have wrote anything, and I would have closed the thread after being sold, and I could get anyone's feedback.

    I don't know if it's necessary to have a follow up post to a sold gun. You'd have 50 posts based on your constant selling.

    1. I have had 2 people suggest (1 recently and 1 weeks ago) that I have 1 thread that processes any and all information about my buying and selling.
    2. Sounded reasonable to me, but I'm afraid to do anything at this point.
    3. It could be called: "Running Dialogue of Guns," or "My Guns: Range Time/Buying/Selling"
    4. Just the one ongoing thread.

    One thread is the way to go, and title individual posts when they relate to something significant like "Sold xxx today, or Bought xxx today" (you can title an individual post in the Go Advanced when replying to a thread). Just keep a single running thread. Folks who care can subscribe if they want to be notified of updates to it, etc. Others can tune it out. Seems reasonable to me. Only talk about selling a particular gun after it is sold (if you feel the need) and not during the sale as that bypasses the classifieds rules.

    Also, most are more interested in the range review than the chronicling of the sale process.

    Then, when you have something that is stand alone not relating to your hunt for the perfect xxx, you can post a completely separate thread.

    That should also save you the need to retype a lot if history about each gun which you seem to do every time you mention it in passing.

    Op, I have to say that I probably won't sell you a gun or buy one from you. I really don't like my transactions being made available to the entire membership on this forum.

    My transactions are between me and the buyer/seller.
    Anything is possible

    I would have considered (and did) that Taurus tracker in .22 Mag but nope. I will pass.
