I can't read it for you, but I can point out that there is a rules thread at the top of each of the Gun Show buy/sell/trade forums that has been there for several years. Any one of them should give you the answer to the problem.

The rule that got you was probably this one;

1. You must be a member in good standing for at least 30 days and have 25 MEANINGFUL posts in the other discussion forums. In other words, "+1", emoticons etc. without a discernable statement involved do not apply. Postings in the Gun Show Forum, with the exception of the Feedback subforum, do not add to post count.
Settle in, and join some of the discussions. You'll meet the requirements before you know it.

With all due respect I don't really understand the rule where you have to have at least 30 posts to be able to post in this topic? What is the objective?

The objective is this: the Gun Show is a benefit for our members. Our members are here for discussion, learning or teaching, not only to sell or buy.

We aren't running a business here. If 30 days membership and 25 posts is too much to tolerate, there is always Gunbroker.

That's correct, Devildog. Rules were augmented back in May, '09 for the very reason Bud gave.

Rich's focus was to provide a board for discussions and discussions only. The
Gun Show is merely a perk for those that contribute to the cause.
If it were up to me, the word "got" would be deleted from the English language.
