1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    A few weeks ago, I posted 12 firearms for sale. Most are sold.

    A friend of mine has asked me to help him clean and sell a variety of firearms. All of these are used and I have recently field stripped and cleaned all of them. For the most part, they have all been in closets for many years, some in cases, some not. I have cleaned them but I have NOT fired any of them and cannot warrant or attest to their working condition, although the owner believes they all work. As to the history of these, most were acquired by the owner’s grandfather or father. Some were brought back from Europe after WW1 or WW2. Only one of these is even close to being called a ‘safe queen’. The rest are used and I have tried to be descriptive both as to condition and any faults I see.

    I am going to post the verbal descriptions in this thread and am providing a link at the top of this post for you to go to my Webshots page if you wish to view photos of the firearms for sale. EACH album in Webshots is labeled as to manufacturer and model and they are all marked “(FS)” meaning For Sale. I will answer questions as I receive them and ask that instead of posting private messages, you please email me (gbatch3@gmail.com) using the following subject :

    “FOR SALE - Your Friend’s Firearms”

    If for some reason the link above does not take you to the Webshots page, cut and paste this URL into your browser:

    http://community.webshots.com/user/gbatch33?vhost=community

    TERMS & CONDITIONS:
    All firearms are offered for sale in compliance with Federal and state laws for the transfer of firearms. For long guns, I will only ship to a FFL after the buyer has sent me a signed copy of the FFL. For pistols, they will be shipped from my FFL to yours. Payment will only be made with US Postal money orders. Since I am not the owner of these firearms, I will provide each buyer with the name and address of the seller along with a copy of his Illinois Driver’s License and his FOID card (Firearm Owner ID used in Illinois). For local Illinois buyers, if we can arrange a convenient meeting place, we can do the transaction according to Illinois law; otherwise, I will ship to your FFL. These firearms are offered for sale without warranty, however the seller is offering a 3 day inspection period to each buyer. Funds will be held by me until either (1) the passing of 3 days or (2) the buyer tells me he is keeping or sending back the firearm. Firearms will be shipped insured and Buyer will pay shipping and handling costs. If a buyer returns a firearm, the buyer agrees to pay shipping costs both ways.

    If you go to Webshots to view the photos, you should be able to see thumbnails or blown up photos. I frankly prefer not to take added photos but will consider reasonable requests.

    The following are the items For Sale:

    I still have # 6 and # 7 for sale.

    If any of you know any Colt Collectors, tell them about the SAA 45LC.

    Asking price on the Colt Commemorative is reduced to $1,800.00.
    410 still available - would make a good snake or rat gun for a barn or outbuilding.

    I have deleted the firearms that were sold and shipped.
    The Colt SAA is reduced again. If anyone is interested in this Colt Commemorative, the buyer said he will consider reasonable offers. Email me or PM me.
