Havent listed much on ebay lately, figured today I would list away. First item was a vintage gunrack, the kind we use to have against our rear pickup windows back in the day. Went to hit submit and this big military pop-up surfaces saying hitler, Nazi, swastika blah, blah, blah. OK, warning heeded but not necessary. The kicker was I couldn't hit submit, go forward but if I hit the back button everything erased. I figured a bot picked up on the word GUN and went to revise without it to no avail. Tried a different category in vain. Guess I will throw all this stuff in the trash, cant have a garage sale, that would be human contact.

Ebay is a joke today I stopped using them years ago.

I use eBay on a daily basis and hardly ever have a problem. Great place to buy and sell.


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

Did you try listing your item as Vintage Storage Rack. Most Times that does work for folks that I know that sell items of that nature.

They got so bad you could not sell a empty shotgun shell or a shotgun choke even that was it for me, AR lower parts kits were not allowed even it got that crazy and PayPal was not much better.

And the buyer can flat out rob you and they know it.

I hardly ever sell on Ebay but I do a lot of buying there, rarely have a problem.

Wife does a lot of selling on Craigslist and I buy from there sometimes.


Eh...wot?

We used to call those the 'easy rider' gun rack, from the movie. Maybe list it as vintage 'easy rider' rack. Guys like me will know what your talking about.

I never tried to buy or sell anything gun related on eBay. What a stupid policy.

Can you sell bows on Ebay? I'm getting sick of all the spam responses I get from craigslist so I've been selling more on Facebook marketplace, but you can't list anything gun related, and no bows.

There are good deals to be had on both, but you have to be quick and ready to go get it right away. The sportspal canoe I bought came from craigslist and I somehow still got it even though it was almost a week after I originally contacted the seller.

You can sell bows and anything gun related except for receiver parts, last I had any which wasn't too long ago.
