To the STAFF of TFL.....and members

Did it ever seem appealing to have a list of FFL dealers, who are here on this site, who would be interested in transfers etc. for those who aren't ?? Tried doing a search, and couldn't find this question coming up......Is this a good idea for our members ??? As Guns America and Gun Broker do provide this service, would it be a good idea here?? I think so.....

I don't see a need for this.

I think that sounds like a pretty good idea, personally. Could come in very handy for some of us.

My first blush impression is that it would be a nice service to offer our members. If it were properly done it may work. I'll open it up to discussion among staff and we'll get back to you.

I think there ought to be a centralized internet database of FFLs.

If I were an FFL, I wouldn't want to have to maintain my contact information on half a dozen different sites.

Don't Gunbroker and Auction Arms maintain lists such as these?

As well as Guns America, Gun Lists, and I believe Shotgun News........
That doesn't mean that TFL can't have one within site, rather than steering to other sites that our members may not even frequent.....

Could be something as simple as changing the COLOR of the members names who wish to participate...

Hum...

Do your legs ever get tired from jumping to conclusions?

I wasn't commenting on the blatant stupidity or the intrinsic brilliance of your plan.

Only asking a question about two other websites that are frequently mentioned here.
