    I don't own the site and I don't see one penny from it. Norm is sole owner of SGN and handles 100% of the financials. I don't have access to them and I don't care to. Just wanted to make that clear. I am the Admin here and I help run the site the way Norm wants it run and that's it.

    I think the current system works great, I just wish viewers were allowed a "PM sent" post so we know to not bother with one with three PMs already. I just got first in line to buy a pretty rare gun off of here. Right now the onus is on the OP to revise their FS thread with "SPF."

    Douché: Pronounced "do-shay" and used like "touché", but in reply to something done or said that's utterly douchetastic e.g. "Wow, you went and did a selfie in the spray tan booth. Douché!"

    From now on when I come across a good deal that's been posted for a few hours I'm just going to make a better offer. Most ads are OBO for a reason.

    Randy: A man's gotta eat, Julian.

    You are going to do WHAT? Offer more than the listed price?

    I know, crazy isn't it. The simple "I'll take it," doesn't work anymore.

    It is crazy, and reckless. It'll lead to bidding wars and issues. It'd be better if guys just got over the fact that they can't have every good deal.

    So OBO only applies when the offer is below the asking price?

    You are advocating "silent auctions"? That's what it sounds like to me.
