I think there should be two sections.

1.) Firearms priced at an amount that is more expensive than buying readily available firearms brand new.

2.) Firearms priced at an amount that is less expensive than buying readily available firearms brand new.

Unless it is no longer being manufactured or is rare for some reason, the first section mentioned is of no interest to most people. I would frequent the marketplace more often if it weren't flooded with the aforementioned listings.

This. I live in San Diego. I'm not going to drive to Victorville or other places potentially considered "SoCal", so a binary north/south split doesn't help.

I like handgun/long gun because so often someone has the gun I want in their post, but I don't realize it because the title only lists the first gun, which is the wrong type. This way at least there's a better chance of the gun I'm interested in being in the title.

Keep it Long Gun / Handgun. I live in Nor Cal, but have traveled to "Mid Cal" to meet up for a FTF. Most people collect either long guns or handguns.

Go with the seller based option.
I do like the division of long gun and handguns, so much easier for shopping.

Or SoCal-Central Valley - NorCal

I really do like the idea of resting the cursor on the add for the Quickview lok see, very nice.

The ideal setup is Handgun & Longgun categories, with North and South sub-categories under each.

This narrows it down to type and geographic region. For instance, if I'm not interested in buying from someone in Northern California I don't have to spend time looking at those ads. This would be much more beneficial for Calgunners.

We need to split by region.

Require city in title along with WTS, or WTT etc. It is very helpful to know the location right off the bat. Most of us are probably only interested in local transactions.

It's not a big deal. Why is it such a huge inconvenience to post multiple listings?

Split by geographic location is still the clear favorite. Let's make this happen. NorCal and SoCal are very easy to separate. And to make it even easier, the mods can through up a map of the state showing one color for North and one color for South.

North/South and LongGun/HandGun ......is 4 catagories too hard to program?
Since the poll is split, seems like the way to go.

People can probably adapt to any layout but some mandatory information in the header and or the post would be helpful. I think an enhanced, easy to use search tool that permits searching multiple criteria is what is needed most. Thanks for the opportunity to provide feedback.

Arrow One thing I started doing..

I like the Marketplace just the way it is when using the Search function.

It is set up with a forum long guns and one for handguns. If one wants to know if a particular seller is listing in either forum, just click on seller's Profile and look at threads recently posted or commented upon, or just PM the seller.

If one wants to know which long guns or hand guns are listed for instance, in San Diego, go to the thread display for that forum and do a 'Search this Forum' and type in San Diego,

It then displays all the local transactions where seller or person wishing to trade has mentioned San Diego. Very helpful to ascertain which handguns or long guns are being offered in your area.

One can likewise do such a city Search under the WTB forum and find out what the locals want to buy.

geo split is preferred because i don't want to buy shipped and i have been discouraged many times by the location after clicking on the thread and finding out they are far away. We live in a big state. :-/

NorCal/SoCal split. Handgun/Long gun split. Easier to sort out for buyers and sellers.

Nor/So Cal isn't a very good split as it still encompasses large areas. Instead consider the adoption of tags. We can have a tag for each county and a user can choose which counties they want to search within. We can also do a tag for shipping or no shipping. We could even have tags for each manufacturer but that's excessive. Someone looking for a particular gun could just use the search option then refine that search via use of tags.

Location required in title with separate LG/HG forums sounds good.

Just a thought, would it be possible to have the option of providing a zip code in user profiles, or just in the post itself, then allow advanced search in the forum to include a geographical radius search based on the searcher's zip code? (5, 10, 25, 50, 100 miles, etc.)

Could even give posters the option to check a box for long gun or handgun, or both, which could be searchable as well. Guess it all depends on the flexibility of the software.

Location is of prime importance to me. Even if a gun is offered for free in Temecula, it's not worth it to me to take the two trips to complete the transfer. Ideally, the forum would let me set a rough distance that I'm willing to travel, perhaps based on ZIP code or area code.

I am liking the handgun/long gun split really well..but

Sellers need to put their city in the title..

That would settle the location problem.

I don't understand how its so hard to add that?

I always have my city in my thread titles..

takes what a few seconds more to type in " San Diego" etc..

Having a hg/lg split is easier when looking for something in particular like a handgun or long gun. Sellers just need to include their city in their thread title and buyers really need to pay extra attention to that. So I think the current layout is working.

So the marketplace has to cater to the seller? What about the buyer? Its the buyer that is more inconvenienced with having to make two trips to the FFL.

The current layout is fine. However, it would be most beneficial to all if users could search based on posting tags such as location, willingness to ship, cost, etc.

Default Keep it the way it is

Personally I think it will be hard to come up with a definitive split that will satisfy everyone. And anyway, what if someone in NorCal will ship to SoCal... or vice versa? People are going to have to search both forums regardless of their location. Just keep it as it is (works great for me) and require that everyone put mandatory info in the title line.... and if the info is missing, then the ad gets deleted until they fix it.

Agreed. And is there anyone that checks listings on a regular basis... or only if they're reported? It'd be good to have a mod(s) scan through and have people edit titles if necessary.

Shoot, I'd be happy if all the *SOLD* posts got deleted in a timely fashion, lol.

Exactly. It takes long enough to sort through all the listings that have changed since the last time I logged in. If I'm looking for a handgun, I don't want to have to weed through rifles at the same time.

It doesn't have to, but if someone really wants that gun they will drive twice to get it.

I havent looked through all the comments so i dont know if it has been posted or not, but what about people who are willing to ship firearms? then north and south makes no difference. I agree with putting location in title. I dont know how much work it would be but would it be possible to put anouther spot in the link to the post where it says "Thread/ Thread starter, Last post, replies, views" and add location for where the profile is set?

Would love to see it split into geographic areas. I'm soooo tired of people not putting their location in the headline\post. Even though it is a required rule it's never enforced

Default Geographical split and firearm type split?

It would be great to have the following categories.

Northern California Long Guns
Northern California Hand Guns
Southern California Long Guns
Southern California Hand Guns

It is a huge bummer to find a gun I want and then find out seller will not ship, and I don't want to drive to LA/San Diego just to buy a gun.

I worry that if you do the geographical split there will be people near the border who will have to search multiple forums.

Split it up by long guns and handguns, allow users to post in both if they're selling both types, and take a firm stand on requiring sellers to include their city or county in the header.
