    Fly Bys

    I believe that in order to ask a price on a gun a "member" should have at least 30 posts. Seems we get many that join/ask/gone. I think Injun Bro mentioned this earlier.

    I avoid the price questions, regardless. I'm not the blue book. It always depends on where you are and demand for a particular configuration. I'll take time, if I have it, to look up serial numbers for a date range for an inherited piece. But, that's about it. I can answer general questions on a number of models, but I know my limitations. I defer to Guy and Irv and others for the details. Price? Never.

    I wonder if the mods could setup a separate forum for "S&W Valuation" threads... It would put them all in one place, and they could limit posts there to people with a certain number of prior posts, or length of membership.

    We could also require photos and serial numbers for any valuation (helping solve the theft problem by making the serial numbers searchable).

    I stay away from price questions. All they have to do is monitor gunbroker and gunsinternational for a few weeks. Not that hard to do.

    Plus look at the want ads on this and other forums. Easy peasy.

    I've never understood it.... Why create an account, username and password, wait for the email to confirm the account etc..... When a simple GOOGLE search takes seconds

    Many times the value question comes along with the " Tell me about my 38 special CTG that was Unkle Festers. Shouldn't need 30 posts to ask what gun you have

    I believe MANY of the first post "what zit worth" questions are a closeted way to see if someone will make an offer on their presumed treasure.
    They leave when nobody does.
    That's why I tend to ignore them unless it's from a known member.

    The Kubota forum I frequent has a post count threshold. You have to have at least 5 posts to post a picture. I think something similar could be applied here or like was said, a separate forum just for pricing questions, but then first time posters would ignore that in as much as they don't even bother to read the users agreement. No one reads the fine print today, most everyone just 'wings' it.
