Rules can be found here:

Added rules:

* No flaming or insulting of other members. You will get one warning via a private message. Repeat offenses will result in being banned. (We are quite serious about this folks).

* Vendor bashing will not be tolerated. You will get one warning via a private message. Repeat offenses will result in being banned.

* When posting, try to use descriptive titles for your threads to enhance the searchability of the site. Thread titles such as "Help Me" or "Dang this sucks" should NOT be used. Instead try titles like 'Need Help with Sights', 'How to Perform Stock Refinish', or 'Vibration in Handguard". This will help other people search the site with better accuracy and make it easier for people to help you out.

* Everyone has a personal opinion and they will often differ from others. If you get into an argument over something, debate the issue, not the member. If you feel the need to get into a heated discussion with someone, send them a private message. Personal debates on the forum will not be tolerated.

* Do NOT post copyrighted material on this Forum without consent of the author. This could be from another website, or a book that you personally own. The owner/Admins of this site will not be held liable for any copyright infringement of this type, and as such, will prevent (to the best of our ability) it's posting in public. This is for the protection of ALL members.

* Do NOT post any messages that are obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violate any laws. These types of messages will not be tolerated. You will get one warning via a private message. Serious offenses may result in immediate permanent suspension. Repeat offenses will result in being permanently suspended.

* Try to avoid thread hi-jacking. Moderators will be looking for this and will more than likely split the topic if it gets too drastic, as well as take appropriate action where deemed necessary, to include deleting posts and/or enforcement action.
Please do not post the same question or post across multiple forums, or in the same thread. The best way to get the answers you are searching for is to post a clear single question in the appropriate forum and be patient, Replies will come. If you are in a hurry for a particular answer try using the search button or reading through replies to similar questions. It may just contain the information that you need. No need to post the same information again and again as this just clogs up threads/sub-forums.
Do not bump non-Marketplace threads as that can clutter the front page of a discussion forum. Posts bumping discussion threads will be deleted.

* Any members advertising their wares on the site without expressed permission will get banned. Personal items for sale in the classifieds are ok as long as the meet the criteria laid out in the site rules.

* Do not post any info, posts or threads regarding the process of going to the estore and artificially placing a large number of items in your cart simply for the purpose of seeing what inventory remains of an item carried on the estore!
This activity slows down the estore and can cause problems with it crashing, errors with people's orders, and inventory errors, particularly during periods of high demand/traffic.
Anyone making such posts on the forum will be warned once, then have their forum privileges suspended at least temporarily for a second violation. Further violations can result in permanent suspension.

* Refrain from posting outside auctions, i.e. -- Gunbroker, Armslist, gun trader sites, etc, that are still active/live. We will not provide a platform for members to promote said auctions as there is no viable way to determine whether they or someone they know has a stake in the auction. Posts with this information will be removed. Continual violations could result in suspension of forum privileges. You may link to closed/completed auctions in the sake of education and learning.

* Your account may be revoked at any time for any reason.

Generally, the following enforcement policy will apply:

1st offense - warning
2nd offense - banned for one week to six month
3rd offense - banned for one year
4th offense - banned permanently
** Depending on the nature of the offense/rule violation, first offense can result in ANY of the above enforcement actions.


Marketplace/Classified Ads Posting Rules:

Vendors (or people selling quantities of the same item) must first contact the Administration (members: GhostInTheMachine).
The forum Marketplace is for the convenience of individual members and is not intended to support users primarily interested in generating profits/income, or in furtherance of a business. Those members who demonstrate such an inclination, to include, but not limited to continually reselling recent CMP acquisitions at a marked up price will face losing their posting privileges and/or removal. We understand that some may not be satisfied with a luck of the draw purchase and it's ok to find someone interested in purchasing it here, whether in whole or as parts, but this should be the exception and not the norm.

NO simultaneous eBay, Craigslist, Armslist, Gunbroker listings or linking to sale items on other sites. You may list an item for sale on other forums, but please have the courtesy of the members here to update the listing if it is sold on another forum.
If you have stuff listed on Gunbroker, Armslist, Craigslist, etc, then sell it there. We will not have the items placed here also. List your product here, try to sell it here, then take it to eBay, Gunbroker, auction-arms etc...

There will be no "auction-style" selling here.
If you post an item for sale and it says anything like "I will take the highest offer" it will be removed. If you want to run an auction, take it to eBay or Gunbroker.

Sellers in the marketplace are REQUIRED to have their full name in their profile.
Full names (First and Last Name) will be required in your profile. Users with obvious fake names, or using false names in their profile will be removed from the forum without warning.
Threads where the user has failed to put their full names and location in their profile will be deleted WITHOUT NOTICE. You are responsible enough to be involved in firearm activity, so you can be responsible enough to read and understand the forum rules, which IS your notice as they are posted in enough places. Threads/ads will be restored once a member has updated their profile with first and last name, and state.
As such, threads/posts in violation will be deleted at the discretion of the moderators.

There is tendency to post negative replies when someone lists an item for sale that others consider "overpriced". Negative comments will not be tolerated. To put it simply: If you don't have anything directly related to the purchase or sale of an item, keep it to yourself.

Omission of information is also known as fraud.
Example: If you are selling a rifle stock that has a 9 inch crack in it you need to disclose that information to the buyer. Do not tell the buyer that the stock has "light scratches" only.
If itís determined that you defraud a member by failing to disclose crucial facts about your items, your access to this section will be restricted and you may be banned from the forum.

Use this section at your own risk.
There are a lot of scams out there so take precautions in your business ventures. The Civilian Marksmanship Program WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOSSES AS A RESULT OF USING THIS SECTION. As a suggestion: sellers should consider using delivery confirmation to avoid conflicts from buyers; saying they never received the products. Buyers, get to know the seller a little before you blindly send cash. If something does not seem right; it probably isn't. If something seems too good to be true; it probably is.
Anyone found to be scamming other members will be immediately removed.

Respect fellow members.
This section is a great place to support/help out fellow members attain their shooting and/or collecting goals, and occasionally make new friends. Please be respectful to your fellow members. Maybe try selling here to a member instead of eBay and save them a buck or two. Users who are found to be using the Marketplace primarily to generate profits/income, or in furtherance of a business without prior approval are liable to lose their privilege to post in the Marketplace and/or be banned from the forum.
Please be respectful to your fellow members. Maybe try selling here to a member instead of eBay, maybe save them a few bucks.
If you have any questions, problems or concerns feel free to contact an Admin.

PLEASE try to go back and mark SOLD when the item sells.
This will help eliminate the old threads coming back up, as well as help those looking for specific items.

Lastly, don't forget the <b>Buyer/Seller Feedback forum.</b> Be sure to express a good or bad experience with your buyer or seller, and let others know what to expect. Also be sure to check there for a member if you are concerned BEFORE you buy.

1. Describe your item in the title.
2. Post a price, easy to find, not just lost in the paragraph of description.
3. Give ALL details. i.e color, size, year, make, model, etc
5. Put "For Sale" in the title of For Sale items, put "WTB" for items you Want To Buy.
6. List shipping, pick-up or delivery options for the buyer.
7. Be sure to add "SOLD" one the items are sold.

Moderation Rules:
1. All spammers get banned instantly and permanently.
2. Inappropriate or out of hand threads shall be closed with or without reason posted for the closure or deleted at the discretion of the Mods/Admins. This includes topics that are not directly related to CMP activities or firearms.

1. If you cannot follow the rules set forth, your posts may be deleted, removed, or edited by the Moderators.
