Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

How to access Clasified section

#1 Post by Pricate » Sun Mar 31, 2019 2:41 am

I’m sure it’s asked all the time but I did not see in in the rules and guidelines. Is it that I don’t have enough post or I need to contribute again? Not sure as a lot has changed. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks and God bless!

You need to have a certain amount of posts to see and access it now. Keeps the one post sellers/or scam artists out of it. I no longer remember the number? You also have to be actively logged in to see the section. A mod will let us know the magic number... This number is not actually posted in the rules or FAQ section. An over sight or it may be a random, nebulous number too keep the one time posters away. The Boss may let us know; it may not be posted for a reason to keep scammers out. In any event after a good number of posts the classified section will appear as fast as you can spell; supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. WELCOME back.
Here is some old forum history, what happened, and how to redo any old posts.

The best news is Todd at Family firearms and finishes is still around and always has the best surplus goodies. He is the one to call if you really want some nice top grade stuff. He does lots of shows and has a huge base so he generally does not list on the classified section. He is a forum sponsor and when I was building my collection, I got the best stuff from him. Actually he is the only person I buy from without actually seeing the rifle in person. You have to call him, his better stuff sells fast. I am not sure if you remember Todd? He is in Ohio. I could go to 5 shows and not find the quality Mosin or Tok that he sold me. His prices are normal, but the rifles' condition or scarcity is always better than I could locate at a show.

Of late, in the last 8 years prices have gotten high and really nice surplus rifles have dried up and are had to find. I would have never thought a RC Mauser would go $500, or a matching Mosin 91/30 at $300 . This is at WI gun shows. Prices be crazy. The best time to find goodies at a show is when one of us old guys dies and the hords of ammo and select surplus rifles come out of the wood work because the family is dumping a huge collection.

Some of the old informative big posts have been reconstructed or redone & updated. So there is lots of reading. These redone posts and can be hid on some of the last pages. Some of mine are kept near the current page. Lots of information is still present post crash. The old Wayback link can be found in that first link-here it is again:

Thank you so much 72 USMC. I thought it might be an amount of post but it’s been so long I forgot. I seem to be suffering from CRS. To many hits on the head 🤪 and that’s my story and I am sticking to it! 😂
