The split won't make much sense for people close to the line. Also some times there are people willing to ship or drive down.

I'm just finding this thread now. It looks like 'split by location' won the popular vote.

Honestly, when I shop for firearms, I want to see ALL of them. I may have been in the market for a revolver, but I've changed my mind after seeing a pretty rifle

I would prefer the marketplace to be split by location, or revert to the way it was. I don't like the long gun/handgun split.

Back to one big section, but my second option is north/south split.

Would love to see it merged back into one thread; much easier browsing, maybe enforce a mandatory title layout or something

I kept seeing a lot of threads titled "Item, Location, Will Ship/No Shipping" and was wondering why...then I clicked to start a new thread and found out why. Granted people are not that smart, but maybe there should be big annoying red text next to that field that says "CHANGE THIS TITLE ACCORDING TO YOUR AD."

I have an idea, we should try something enforceable instead of the junk we have right now. long gun/handgun split my butt has anyone else besides me realized that people are to Ahhm should I say,, to figure out "longgun forum"= where you put your long guns ie RIFLES. "handguns forum"= HANDGUNS.. I like the regional split I think it would help the not so sharp crayons on the site to lump there guns and just figure a Geo location. Might I suggest, do to the long stretch that is California a north, mid, south split might be a little more friendly to the end user and will keep the forum traffic light enough that users wont feel the need to "over bump" there post to keep it around not only that but it allows for a more stable sale/trade forum under heavy site load, leaving plenty of "room" for new users in the future.

Change it back to the way it was. If anything, a north south split. I am finding as a lot of handguns in the longgun section. So I have to check both anyway

+1 for this. I use the search function if I want something specific but generally I like browsing everything and that's easier when it's in one place.

I would prefer a geographical split, with all firearms listed together in the appropriate geographical location sub forum. Thanks for asking out opinion on the topic.

Why not add a county tab when listing items and the ability to search by county?

Original recipe, I like to see what's out there and having everything split makes it harder to look at everything. Location is required already, just add it to the title.

i dont think the geogaphic split makes the best sense for me - just bought something from socal, shipped to norcal, besides, 2 people in norcal can still be 4 hours apart. i like the handgun/longgun split. i do sometimes wish i could more efficiently search postings - like to show only ads willing to ship, but that was not your question.
thanks for working so hard to make the sight the best it can be!

I kind of like the way things are right now. Usually, buyers know whether they are in the market for a rifle or handgun, and they should remain separate forums (sub-forums).

The listing title should include the seller's CITY OR TOWN and 'No Ship' where applicable.

I agreed, another vote for NorthCal/SouthCal split. I would prefer all the guns in one place.

I'm always annoyed when I see a gun that I want but realize it's in NorCal. I'd rather have regional listings with a handgun/long gun.

I haven't worked with vBulletin in a long time, but is it possible to 'tag' a thread so that it will be shown in multiple forums?

Example (assuming a regional split): If someone's close to an adjacent region or willing to ship, can they select the regions where the offer will apply and have the thread appear in the forums for each region?

Maintaining multiple threads is unwieldy, so this format would only make sense if vBulletin has the functionality. (Or if the CG techs are willing to add the functionality).

If it's a regional split, 3 would be better than two. Oregon to SF, SF to Tejon Pass, Tejon to Tijuana.

And if vBulletin will show the same thread in multiple forums, might as well split the state into 6+ regions.

I'm warming up to the Handgun and long gun split rather than one large thread. Don't think an area split works very well either. Seems more people are putting the area in the title now as well.

For me it works as I have none to very little interest in long guns.

Geographic split. I'm sorry to all the Central Cali folks. When I'm shopping, I'm Shopping! Let me see it all! Long, short, doesn't matter. That's what she said.

After using this for awhile I find myself checking both.....so although I voted for this one north /south would be better.

Now if people would just put the city in the title!!

Why not both? A Nor/So split with Sub categories under there?

My #1 problem with the marketplace is I find a great firearm that I'm interested but the seller is in Sacramento and I'm in Orange County. California is a big state--800 miles long--so my vote is for the seller location split north/south.

Ether a split of north and south or a search feature that you can select north or south or maybe if posters could put in there title or at least in there thread.

If people would get off their butts and make an effort to ship, there would be no need for a North South split.
Seems divisive...all the socal guns stay in socal, all nocals stay up north.

Regional split. What people have for sale doesn't matter if they are not near me or willing to ship or I am willing to pay to have shipped. So, I would rather not even be bothered seeing those listings not near me as more times than not, a FTF would be ideal to save shipping and/or transfer costs.

Geographic split seems to be in the lead! When can we look forward to a resolution of this? Dropdown menus of some location format similar to how Craigslist requires you to put in your location would be great! Having been bouncing around between my longgun and handgun ads for the past few weeks, I can confirm I'd like to have a location split and not necessarily a type of gun split, but a more advanced search/sort function would be ideal!

i voted seller location split, but i think any split by location would be preferred.I should have voted geographic line where my vote would have done more good.

The problem has been solved before - see Craigslist :-)

You can view everything. You can look at specific regions. You can look at specific categories. You can search.

I realize the problem is forcing the way folks use CL or Amazon into a whatever it is that vBulletin will allow or that folks are used to here.

In my opinion, given the nature of most firearms transactions, those make sense by region, as those are mostly face to face transactions.

But parts, etc, could be statewide as those are just as easy to transact by UPS.

Default Handguns to Shortguns.

I'm sure many members are confused by the term "Handguns", so I suggest that we change to "Shortguns".
Goes better with "Longguns", and will eliminate the confusion.

If I have money - I like to see all guns for sale, there may be something of interest that pops up and could sway me to buy either. Also, easier on sellers who have both for sale.

Location - should've been in the Ad anyway. Everyone lives and travels differently - so Norcal or Socal sale thread would only create more issues.

Default Splitting the Marketplace

Ideally, in order to allow members to search in the category they are interested in, there should be four (4) categories of firearms sales:

1) Northern California - Long guns
2) Northern California - Handguns
3) Southern California - Long guns
4) Southern California - Handguns

That's my 2, YMMV !

Default All One State

Splitting the state into north and south ---- yikes.
Several of us travel the full length of the state to find what we want. It is also good to have a quick comparison of all areas in one search. Strange enough to have long guns and hand guns split.
Next, will it be split into brand name forums?

Kess,
If I may suggest - if it must be divided, then do it so the mods can spend efficient time being useful.
An immediate help would be to make Location mandatory and not optional for all posters.
Cheers!

I like the way it works as is !
It is much easier to read the new threads when they are broken down by handgun, and long gun.
A north south split does not work for me beacus some hand guns can be shipped, single action, and those that are on the CA. Handgun list.
I don,'t mind reading a new thread to see if I am interested, first and then to see what can come of meeting the buyer or seller for the transaction.
I do not want to wade through a long list of threads, if looking for one type of gun.
Please keep it the was it is.
