What if I just want to remain anonymous? was designed with the firearms community in mind. We understand that you have your reasons. We only ask that you verify your email address – which helps to protect us from scammers.

Your basic Membership includes all of the functionality that provides, minus saved search notifications and a few other goodies that are in the works. We will never cripple your usage of our service.

What’s in it for me?

Verification provides the following benefits (in our humble opinion)

  • Other members will see your Verified Member or CCW Verified badge and they will know that you are who you say you are, and if CCW verified, that you are a law-abiding citizen.
  • Your badge will not only increase your visibility. It will gain you the trust of other buyers, increasing the likelihood of making a sale.
  • Verification helps to lend credibility and respect to the second-hand firearms market; something that benefits the entire firearms community.
  • As a thank you for becoming a verified member, we have reserved special privileges such as the ability to receive alerts when new items are posted from your saved searches.

Why do you charge a one-time fee?

Credit card transaction was the cheapest and easiest way we could think of to verify your identity. We keep the fee as low as possible.

CCW Verification costs a little extra because our staff must manually approve your submitted image.

How do you verify my account?

There are two methods of verification. For standard verification, we will charge your credit card a small fee in order to verify your identity.

For CCW verification, you will provide us an image or scan of your current Concealed Weapon Permit (or law enforcement credential).  

What is verification?

Members have the option to remain anonymous and enjoy nearly all of our site’s features, or to verify their identity and gain special privileges for supporting a safer and healthier marketplace.
