Handgun Classifieds and Post Count
I buy, trade, and sell a lot of handguns. It is a lifelong hobby. Everytime I log onto the Handgun Classifieds in this forum I get the following message:
"To access this forum your post count must be 50 or greater."
That makes no sense to me. I currently have 23 posts. So should I go around posting meaningless comments just to increase my post count to 50 so I can get access to folks who want to sell their guns? This rule must keep several people from being able to buy and trade with those who want to sell something. It penalizes those with over 50 posts who have something for sale from being contacted by those of us with less than 50 posts who might want to buy what they have. I frequent Glocktalk, The Highroad, The Firing Line, The Sig Forum, The S&W Forum, and others, and none of them has this rule. So my trading is confined to the other forums. It would be nice to participate on this one, but it seems senseless to me to have to have 50 posts to participate.
