    No sales in reloading please

    Chaps, sales have started to sneak into the reloading section. These posts should be in the firearms and related items section please.

    I've moved the most recent ones over, but any new ones will be deleted without notice.

    Probably because this is quite a specialist area Andy and folk will look here first

    If you want to provide a useful service why not sport out a specific reloading sales area....problem solved.

    Im sure its been asked for before Chris, but it was refused due to the firearms sales section
    Work them hard, treat them like heros.

    Most of our time is covering sales or sorting sales disputes, having them in the same areas makes looking for problems easier. Its been discussed and decided that reloading sales are firearm related and should go in that section. The odd sale may have gone unnoticed in reloading but as Andy says, sales are starting to outnumber reloading topics 3:1 and the section was never started for that. Sorry gents but the decision stays

    Understood P, I agree, so why not just add another sub section?

    Or add a sub section to re-loading?

    There are precious few that come up, and those that are likely to buy will be looking at the re-loading section anyway.

    Compromise.....?

    How about being able to just mention in this section that you've put something in the sales section that may be of interest.

    win-win

    I don't mind how you organise the site, it's a great and very useful site.
    I've looked though, and the section you refer to doesn't seem to be there when I look.

    There's a section a called Sales,and it has a firearms section. There doesn't appear to be a section called "Fire arms and related items". If you're threatening to remove adverts that don't comply, I think it would be fair if there was a theoretical possibility of being able to comply. Apologies if I'm reading you wrongly.

    Perhaps a reloading section in "Sales" would be a good compromise all round.

    Cheers
    Derek

    Hmmm...sales have been "sneaking" into this section for years! It has been mentioned by the mods in previous times that it was ok and different to the usual sales sections as well as not being a big problem to moderate.



    I think for the use that this section has become for reloaders, either reinstatement of sales or a reloading sales section would be a very good idea.

    Reloading stuff is still relatively minority in terms of sales, so those items would rapidly drop off the bottom of the sales pages,while the other items like firearms wpuld get bumped regularly.

    Please don't make us trawl through millions of posts in the fac sales section just to find a bit of reloading kit!

    You would think so wouldn't you?

    After all we have a one stop shop for processing dead stuff etc.

    Makes sense to me but then.....

    sales

    seems like people are not taking much notice of your no sales on reloading page,
    a reloading sales section would be a good idear,
    thanks,T

    The reason being that there are no other more logical places it will be seen.

    Moreover, anyone wanting too sell or find re-loading kit knows where to look.

    Like you say, not a lot of folk paying attention, particularly as the link to the post is doing it's job, re-loaders are still seeing the link "in the re-loading section" and following it.

    All in all a great way of self burdening by the mods while those posting sales or wanted in the most logical place still get the desired effect.

    Yarp...well thought through

    Hi,

    I'm new to this site and I have read that some sales have been creeping into the reloading section, which i thought was the sales section. I was wondering if there is a sales section where I can buy guns and scopes or where is the best place for me to look?

    Thanks
