I used Armslist numerous times in Missouri and Arkansas with very few issues but here...seems like there might be posers stringing people along or thugs looking to ripoff good people. I really like this site’s community feel.
Any experiences to share?

I've had one deal I didn't like on this sight. Everyone has been great, and I've bought a lot of stuff on this sight. Guns, car and even a golf cart and a lawnmower. Ammo. LOL

The few times I have listed on there I got mostly spam or scam emails. It took over a month to sell the last two, doubt I will use it again.

It’s been 50/50 for me. As RW said, you have to sift thru too much spam and lookers. I stick to here or Gunboards typically.

I've sold a dozen or more on there with no problems. Only rifles/shotguns though. Tried selling a handgun on there one time and wasn't happy with the calls I was getting.

Not in Jackson, but just North of there.
Bought a Marlin 336, guy said it was like new, but it was covered with rust. The price changed on site.
Bought a Rem 700, but, it was not the model his ad indicated, we renegotiated the price accordingly.

Just be in tune with the item, walk away, as needed.

Thanks for all of the input!
I’m happy to be a part of a “firearm friendly” community.

That place is terrible. I have had more negative experiences than positive there. I have had 99% positive deals here. I don’t ever even look at Armslist anymore.

I’ve had decent experiences on there. You can pretty much feel people out via email/text before you ever go to meet enough to tell if they’re wishy washy or not.

I’ve made a few contacts that turned out bogus but any meets I’ve had have been fine

No experience at all but from what I read here
on this post, it sounds as if it is NOT worth the
trouble to deal with.

I've bought and/or sold over a dozen on Armslist, and only had one bad experience. It was a case of being "stood-up", where the other party never showed up at the meet. Most of my Armslist deals were from the Coast or Hattiesburg. The only deal I've done with anyone from Jackson, was when I traded into a Glock 30. We met in Hattiesburg. It went smooth.
