Classified System Rules
Rules of the Southwest Firearms Classifieds System
These rules govern the use of our classifieds system. Failure to abide by these rules will result in suspension of classifieds system
privileges and the possible suspension of your account.
1. Members must comply with Southwest Firearms rules and local, state, and federal laws at all times
It is the responsibility of all members to comply with both the Southwest Firearms rules and local, state, and federal laws at all times.
We don't like it any more than you do, but facilitating illegal activity is a great way to get us shut down. Unfortunately, we also have to
err on the side of caution when it comes to legal gray areas.
This includes but is not limited to the following:
Buying, selling, or trading firearms across state lines without the involvement of an FFL.
Buying, selling, or trading firearms without a background check in states where one is required.
Buying, selling, or trading reloaded ammunition (even as components) without an 06 FFL.
Buying, selling, or trading black powder without an explosives license.
Buying, selling, or trading solvent traps or other components for homemade suppressors.
Buying, selling, or trading forced reset triggers.
Thread-crapping occurs when a member posts negative comments in another members classified ad. If you believe there is a problem with the ad

All sale ads are required to have the price of the item clearly stated. If an ad has multiple items for sale, the price for each item should
be listed in the body of the ad. Ads with a placeholder such as $1 or $1234 will be deleted without notice. Auction style listings are not
7. Create separate ads whenever possible (and always for different item types)
Creating a separate ad for each item you have for sale makes it easier for people to find the ad when using the classified filters.
Ads for different item types (pistols, rifles, ammo, etc) may not be combined, create an ad for each in the proper section.
8. You are required to lock your ad once it is no longer active
When a member locks their ad, it lets others know it is no longer active and removes it from the list of ads. Do not update the ad with
"sold", "done", "SPF", etc, that information will be added automatically once the ad is locked.
9. Do not post general item questions within a classified ad
The Classified System is not the appropriate place for general item discussion. Instead, create a new thread in the appropriate section of
the Discussion Forum. General item questions are questions which pertain to the item but not the sale, such as "How do you like your Colt
