If you're a non-paying member and you start a "What is My Gun Worth" thread, it will be deleted. The reason for this is simple: We have a Classifieds area where supporting members can sell their guns. It's one of the many benefits of membership. When you start a thread outside of the classifieds asking what a gun is worth, you will get offers for it. We see this as a way to circumvent the membership requirement. If we let it ride, it won't be fair to the members that paid to use the Classifieds. If you want to know what your gun is worth, go to GunBroker.com. log in, and search completed auctions to find out how much similar guns sold for. You could also spring for a copy of this or this, and look it up. You can also go to a gun shop and ask. Please note: This also applies to threads from non-paying members asking something like, "What is a fair price to pay for X?"
