View Full Version : New from San Diego

Hello to all. I stopped in Turners Gun Shop in San Marcos today and the man that helped me suggested I check out this forum. Could someone please help me figure out how to post some photos on this forum? I opened a photobucket account and I read the sticky/thread that said I need a url or something. I have a Springfield 1911 A1 Stainless .45 Auto, (Loaded), with 2 Wilson Combat 8 round magazines, 2 standard 7 round magazines, and 400 rounds of .45 I want to sell. If I am posting this in the wrong place I apologize.
Thanks Howard Hough

welcome to Calguns Howard. whoever gave you this forum address knows what he's talking about.
I'm not sure how you would put a photo from photobucket on to this forum but if you do a search, either in this Calguns.net search engine or Google and you put in what you're searching for and you also type in "Calguns.net" . then you should be able to find a previous post on instructions on how post a photograph. for instance search Google with the words "Calguns.net post photograph"
also you can put that .45 in the firearms for sale section of Calguns.net without a picture and you're still get some people interested. I certainly hope that helps.

I'm from LA, but am in San Diego all week. Great town by the way! I'm new to the forum too. About a week and already bought a sig 516 from zippo. What a great guy he is. Lots of great info here. Good luck!

Hi Howard,

To post picks using your photobucket account, follow these steps:
1. Log into Calguns and start your WTS thread
2. Log into PBucket and go to your library
3. Click on the first picture you want to use
4. On the right side of the screen, there should be some drop down menus
5. Select image links
6. Click on direct link (you will see the link change to "copied")
7. Go back to your CG thread and click on the image icon
8. Pop up will ask for your link to the photo
9. Paste link into pop up
10. You are GTG
11. Preview thread before posting to make sure everything looks OK.

Just repeat the steps to add more pics.

Hope this helps

Option 2 works for most forums but not all. IMG icon is best bet with a link.
