    Yahoo used to have an auction site too, don't know if it's there anymore.

    Craigslist is good. (Personals are great.)

    I'm familiar with both these sites and visit them on occassion. The current problem is volume of bidders/buyers - it's too small to create good deals.

    E-bay had millions of people looking for (and finding) good deals. On these other sites, currently, it is a sellers market (or not... have to admit there are a lot of no-bids on many items).

    I'll check the "gun" sites on a preferential basis in the hopes that they will provide me with good deals. But so far, I can get most of the non FFL items as cheap or cheaper from Midway or Cabela's. The only real variable is shipping cost and returnability (better guarantees w/the catalogue guys).

    It will take time, but I will support "gun" related auctions when they become competitivly priced with the major catalogues or my local stores. I hope the auctions improve soon because its anywhere from a 60 to 160 mile trip to a good (local) sporting goods store where I live.

    I guess it would be helpful if from time-to-time folks on T.S. would pass along sites with good deals.
