Mike:

Seems to me that the "no gun sales" flag has been up since you joined, or at least since you last posted....

I don't make the rules, but I can give you a half-cogent reason: (IMHO:)

We're a relatively small group, and live in a litigious society. Should one of the guns sold here (or we're a conduit to the sale), be involved in something, we're likely to be sued.

While we'd probably win the suit, defending it could get very costly, and we'd rather put our limited resources into stuff we really need to get involved with. And there are plenty of other places who will list guns.

Regards,
Stu
