    Bring A Cat Semi Automatics Back to Trade Me

    Since Trade Me prohibited the sale of all semi automatic firearms in March, the market for used semi-auto 22s and shotguns in New Zealand has really dried up.
    Trade Me was the main place people went to buy and sell used firearms, so this is a major setback.
    The number of firearms currently listed on Trade Me is less than half what it was before their policy change.

    I’ve created a petition for Trade Me to allow the sale of all “A” category firearms, as they did before.
    Here is the link: https://www.change.org/p/trade-me-tr...egory-firearms

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    TM is a private platform. A petition doesn’t mean anything to them.
    Frankly they can go f**k themselves, stop giving them your money if possible.

    You're dreaming. Show me an example where TradeMe has acquiesced to requests for improvements, changes or services..........and now they have an overseas owner whose major business activity is buying operations, "flossying them" and then selling them for a profit ASAP..

    Be logical, ignore TradeMe and support the newly created venue for firearms web site .

    To be honest, fuck Trademe. The more they disallow, the more room it allows for a viable alternative (like gunbroker.co.nz)

    Plus f**k Change.org.
    They are quite happy to host a petition banning ALL semi autos (ie shotguns and rimfires).

    Change.org is the biggest waste of space around.
    The way they promote their useless petitions, they make seem like only a few more signatures (how many are actually real people?) are all that is required to magically make the request happen.

    I wasn't aware that gunbrokernz.co.nz even existed, so thanks for bringing that to my attention.
    However, I went over there and there was one firearm listed for sale. One.

    You don't seriously think that will replace Trade Me any time in the near future, do you?
    It is unlikely that any site will ever surpass the prevalence and ease of use of Trade Me.
    They have about 4 million members, or pretty much every adult in the country.
    That means that almost every gun owner has a Trade Me account.
    How is gunbrokernz ever going to compete with that?

    I did find a decent alternative in allgoods.co.nz though.
    They allow the sale of all firearms(not just A category) and they make it much easier to contact the seller directly.
    There are currently more than 50 firearms listed for sale there.
    Check it out here: https://allgoods.co.nz/browse/7641?a...=0&brand_new=0
    There is a box in the lower right corner to switch between new and used listings.

    The gunbrokernz.co.nz site has only been launched in this last week.

    Quite right............So let's have some patience and give them room to develop. In the meantime, if you want to use TradeMe then do so, but fat chance of getting either substantial support here for a petition or any acceptance of a petition by TradeMe's new owners.

    In my opinion, firearms are both sufficiently specialist and taboo at the moment to warrant their own site apart from trade me.

    As I said fuck trade me .If every one adopted your attitude nothing would change. Trade me has shat on us at every opportunity and made up their own rules as they see fit regardless of law.The make ardern go away hats hats are another example.Give gunbroker some legs and see where it goes.I have no affiliation with them just would rather firearms have their own site.
