I'd tell ya, but I'm one of the older members (farts), so I'm sure that you'd rather figure it out for yourself, rather than me spell it out for ya.

The "ONLY" bad thing about owning "A GUN" is........not owning two or more!

When the dust settles and the smoke has cleared, it's not the firearm in hand that determines accuracy, but rather, the hand on the firearm.

If you don't take CONTROL of the situation, the situation will take CONTROL of you!

Maybe you are a spy trying to start a new gun forum?

I'll give you a hint, it's one of the below;

a) Government bailouts.

b) Medicaid/Medicare fraud.

c) With the assistance of ACORN.

d) Everyone's on disability.

e) Standin' at the top of offramps with a sign.

f) Capitalism.

oy...this may possibly be the dumbest thread for February

"Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson (my facebook quote :) )

Just the information GB sells to ".......For Dummies" (electrical, carpentry, plumbing, auto repair, etc) alone is worth $ millions.

Then there is the "Consumer Reports" info right here in one place that should net another
several thousand $ a year.

They might even make a few dollars on those auction fees, not sure about that.

Ever sell something on the auction side? Commission based sales my friend... or didn't you understand the 'broker' in 'GunBroker'?

Nope, no profit here, Racing in NASCAR is cheap the five figure salaries of moderators is cheap so they just do this for fun and giggles.

A mysterious fund was developed for every post that is poofed or locked. The mods are on a quota system so the more they poof and lock the more money the site makes.

A lot of recently orphaned Nigerians have paid good money for email addresses so that they can obtain the worlds best investment advice from the fine members of these forums.


I just read "100 things to do before you die" and was quite surprised that yelling for help wasn't one of them.

OK. I know there is an auction side on this site. So, asking a simple question as I have never sold anything, I am baragged by the , have you hear this before, impolite smart ass answers,

Just asking a legimate question and it appears the elder members cannot answer politely. You think it is a stupid question but if it is a legimate question, which it is, why did you not answer it?

GB charges a fee for selling something.
Did that answer your question?

This is not an outrageous signature.

GunBroker makes money off auction fees and advertising on the auction site. GunBroker uses some of that money to provide these forums. I don't think the forums make any money.
