    Same here, wont work.

    Wonder if perhaps they got hacked?
    Tons of scammers on that site.
    Perhaps better screening when posting an ad to avoid spam?

    It's been struggling for quite a while just to remain on-line. Now it's down obviously for a while.

    I've been reporting scammers on that site, but it always seems to take days for the ads to be removed, if at all. Don't know how many moderators or administrators are on that board.


    Since the scammers are rampant, I hope it didn't get hacked.

    Weird, this is all I get. Can you copy the address you are using out of the address bar and hyperlink it here?

    I have been using that site since 2005 and loved it before it got popular and the scammers came out in force! Sad, I really hope they didn't fold! Sold/bought/traded over 30 guns using them!
