lock trades without state

if they don't put the state in the thread name could admins lock it?

The mods have enough going on without adding more. Is it really that difficult for you to send a PM/email or reply to thread asking their location?

It is not that it is difficult to PM/email or reply to thread. It is more about not wasting anyone's time and being able to latch onto a good deal before anyone else does. Again saving time to both the original posters and would be trader/buyer and allowing someone in their location a clean "call / dibs" on something in a wtt/wts thread.

A lot of people look for a ftf transaction to avoid a blind purchase on a used firearm and hoping it reaches the ffl in the described condition as well as saving ffl/shipping fees and shipping delays as well as just an overall trust issue on a web handshake transaction that it will even be shipped after payment.

Again just my opinion, I think not having to scroll down to see if a location reply was posted, (especially in a wtt wts post that has pics in it) to see if the location of the item is even mentioned.


JohnKSa did answer my question on it last week so I logged it as a web pet peeve of mine and moved on lol

though I nominate Wildalaska to patrol The Firing Line Gun Show looking for would be forum felons :P
