    Can you sell Metal Detectors on here?

    I have a brand new Garrett ATX Extreme Pulse Induction Metal Detector.

    I got into metal detecting awhile back and decided to buy it.... then like other hobbies of mine I never went out. it literally was delivered to me and then sat on the top shelf in my closet until today. lol

    Anyway I am trying to figure out the best way to sell it.

    I bought it from kellyco and they gave me a bunch of stuff... shovels, knee pads, a smaller handheld detector etc for free that I want to go with the detector.

    Anyway, seeing as I'm sure someone here would be interested am I allowed to list on here somehow?

    Thanks in advance for the feedback!

    Terry,

    Sold.

    Charter Member? Seeing as I am not one of those I guess Ebay??

    What do you think I should list it for? I think I spent like $2500. $1500? What is a fair asking price?

    I don't really care to wait for the best price I can get.

    For some reason, on the MD forums, you need to either pay tribute to the site and let them wet their beak, or you need to have hundreds of posts to sell a detector. No other hobby has a forum lockdown like MDing does on private sales of detectors.

    There is a reason why we do things.......We now require sellers to be charter members because when selling was open to all members we were having too many bad deals by people stopping in to sell then skipping out once paid.......

    Nothing could be farther from the truth. Many forums I am a member of make the user either reach a certain post count and/or pay to unlock privileges. Computer forums...auto forums...electronics forums....I could go on for quite a while.

    Help me understand what you're saying - Do you mean:

    People were coming here to sell detectors but not participating in the forum?

    People were coming here to sell, getting paid first by members, and not delivering?

    Other?

    I believe he is saying that people would register just to sell then not participate in the forums. Ebay and Craigslist would be more suitable for that. This is a forum that is made for participation not hit and runs to make a buck.

    I am sure there were plenty of people not getting paid or not delivering as well....although I cannot be 100% sure I will assume it has happened once or twice.

    Ebay takes an account to make work (to sell), and CL doesn't reach people specific to any given hobby. Personally (just my opinion), I think it does a disservice to members to cut them off from buying and selling freely. it's not up to any site (again, just one guys opinion here) to broker or moderate any legal transaction between consenting adults. Obviously it's TN's site and they make the rules. I respect that, again just throwing out my opinion on the matter which is just that - my opinion.

    If the mods were open to any sort of compromise (theoretically speaking), they could make a rule that sales are allowed if face to face and local. That would eliminate a large swath of any potential fraud of members. The other notion that not being an active, regularly participating forum member is some how detrimental is silly. When I was looking to purchase, I would have welcomed having more options to buy, even if at my own risk. As a buyer, I certainly don't need a forum as a buffer and moderator to my own judgement regarding buying from an online ad. Again, just my 2c and in no way meant as an insult to the site, it's rules or it's mods.
