    Just type in "guns, firearms or ammo" in the search on craigslist and you find this type of thing all over the place.

    People offering up all sorts of things for weapons these days.

    If your real bored go to gunbroker and hit "trade" in the search. There are cars, houses and a lake side resort for offered for gun or gold trades.

    Fun stuff.

    Worthless? In the eyes of the beholder. Someone might wanna trade a worthless firearm for something of equal value. :)

    True enough. I have eight firearms for trade (or sale) right now. In my case, I am wanting to divest myself of specialized or duplicate rifles. The dang safe is too full to be taken up by rifles rifles I don't shoot.

    LOL that's exactly how I got my first pistol. Had a broken down car, posted on cl for a cash amount or trades ended up with a glock 30 and 500 bucks in my pocket.

    Fiats aren't even good cars, let alone currency.

    I love it when people say the item has "$ XXX Value" my standard response to this (when in a similar situation/deal) I tell the 'offering party' then go sell it for that amount and come back with cash. Very simple.

    I do the same thing, if it really is worth that much, then how come no one has paid it yet???????

    I have told people well if you change your mind let me know, they never do.

    So, I then use a different email address 3 weeks later and offer the same amount or even less and they take it.
