    I agree with you, yet the market is conducting this concert...not the manufacturers, not the distributors and not us the vendors......I am prob the only shop in town that is still getting daily deliveries....small....quantities, but I still sold a new inventory of roughly 30 sig 516s, 30 or so Colts, some AKs....but I didnt even post one on here cause I personally think that the prices are stupid, but when I have ppl fighting to pay 3k for a sig 516 and 2K for colts...god bless them, I might be out of business in a few months......I pay the piper....and Joe is paying me, when I can, I try to help my core of customers and friends and the R4x4 guys.....but it is crazy out there...

    I can't say that I have even give that a thought Sharon. I hope that things don't play out that way. Most of us who are yelling and screaming about "what may come" don't have our livelihood at stake...

    I didn't see him suggest anyone intervene, except to remove them from the site. I think that's fair.

    It's like paying $8 for a beer at a game, they can do as they please but fucking assholes god damn son of a bitch ************************

    Another good option would be to be able to omit sections/forums that you have no interest in. I.e. if I want to never see anything on RC cars, Firearms, or Sports, etc. I can check which forums I want to see or not see. For the people that like to just see "New Posts", etc.

    That's my solution to those that are complaining about all the gun talk on here.

    In regards to fixing the one post wonders, I do love this fix. It's a step in the right direction.

    He is talking about scampers with football tickets and people selling AR 15s for more than he wants to pay. Sounds like he believes someone should prevent this from happening just like they do for scalping tickets to a football game.

    If you don't like $8 beers don't drink their beer. Drink whiskey.

    Price is determined by the market. If someone will pay $200 for two seats on the 50 to the Boise state Nevada game ill ell it to them even though I paid $60 each. Apparently I'm an asshole for doing that but something tells me he wouldn't tell someone "no, I'll only take face value for my tickets because its not fair to you to pay more"

    Just another reason I'll never shop at Maccabee. First you’re upset that a guy in Gardnerville is offering AK build classes for next to nothing ($35) on this site without a vendor account. Who do you think pays for that vendor membership. It's called pass through I do. No surprise you are also now for driving up prices once again on personal sales by requiring a membership to post sales. Let's see so you’re on here to drive up prices so your shop is more competitive. I get your game. I hope everyone else can see through it to. I am all for fair practices and I agree that this site is for 4x4. Maybe it's time for someone to start a Nevada forum for gun sales and talk. I know southern Nevada is hurting for a forum with sales. Yes, I have a truck that has not been washed in two years and there is dirt under the fenders. I have a dirt bike and I am a sixth generation Nevadan. What I find interesting is that a Google search brings up Reno 4x4 and the first thread offering (meaning most visited/popular) is the firearms thread. Maybe it's time for a firearms forum. I'd pay $20 just to stop the bantering from the 4x4 community.

    Dude you must be a douche bag if you want to complain and can't afford the membership then go post somewhere else. This a 4x4 forum after all.

    Got two words for you. The first starts with an F and ends in a K I think? Oh and the second word is You. Love these guys who bitch about having to pay to sell stuff here! Driving up prices on personel sales by requiring membership? Wow.

    You guys crack me up.

    Not sure how things get so off topic on here....oh yea because people love to go rabid on anything.

    Here is what I said (I will only try one more time) Reno 4x4 is an off-road site and they have every right to kick firearms or anything that detracts from off-road off their site. Maybe someone (not me) as I am not an IT guy should start a dedicated firearms blog for Nevada. I don't like being an unwanted guest. I like the idea of having a dedicated site for firearms (not armslist) is all I am saying. Unless Reno 4x4 is ok with the firearm traffic staying on this site? I like it here as it has been warm and cozy................and most of the people on here have been very helpful and nice to deal with. I’ll pay for a membership when one of two things occurs. 1. I decide to sell something 2. They make it a requirement for all members to have a membership to view the forums. I don’t recommend this since I think it will more than likely drive away potential new members. I also don’t like the idea of a minimum post count because you incentivize people to open their fat mouths to increase post count. Hence my low count. If I didn’t have anything of value to add in the past I had no incentive to say anything. Now you guys are saying anything is better than nothing. This is like saying there is no such thing as stupid questions………..

    I never said anything about Maccabee prices. I was simply making a point about their practices on this forum which I have found to be anti-competition and predatory.

    It's already been tried. People still prefered to post on Reno4x4.com

    I own NevadaGunOwners.com domain and can get it resurrected as it's own forum in an hour or less.

    "Let's see so you’re on here to drive up prices so your shop is more competitive. I get your game. I hope everyone else can see through it to. "

    both your quotes... So ok how am I taking that wrong?

    and when I bought mags there when he got them in and paid a dollar less then Scheels was charging.thats a no brainer for me I think id rather shop with him.

    The gun parts of this site are fine, and its a great community. People joining just to sell a gun to profit in todays shit is not good, but thats been rightfully fixed. I think the setup right now is perfect. I joined for the 4x4. Then got into guns here. My time is spent about equally between the two. If someone has usefull gun tech to add, and wants to be part of the community, thats fine IMO. Maybe they will get interested in 4x4 someday. Just to sell overpriced gun, not fine. Pay membership, support the site and be part of the community- guns, 4x4 or both. $20 membership is not that much to support this great community.

    It means that if you are only here to peddle your goods then either pay for a premium membership or go sell elsewhere.
