    Welcome to the Long Range Hunting Classifieds! I’ve written this guideline to help you understand and manage expectations for using this part of the LRH community.

    All firearm transactions are subject to local, state, and federal laws. If you have questions, please visit https://www.atf.gov

    As a member, you understand that we offer the classifieds as a free service to the community. As such you understand this service is a buyer’s beware and if you do not accept this, you should not use this part of the community.

    Why don’t I have permission to post here?
    The classified section of Long Range Hunting is just one part of the community. We ask that you make at least 10 posts, and have some interaction with the community in forums other than the classifieds before you can be approved to participate in the classifieds. We don’t charge for the classifieds, but we would all love to get to know who we are dealing with. A great place to start is with an introduction about yourself. Feel free to start an intro thread here .

    If you would like to upgrade your membership, become a LRH Team Member, and start posting in the classifieds right away, you can upgrade your membership here . It's a great way to support the site and let us know that you appreciate the opportunity to use the classifieds.


    Tips for Buyers:

    • Know what you are buying!
    • Ask for detailed pictures, recently taken, and with as much identifying information as possible.
    • Verify any contact information (besides just an email).
    • Know the value and condition before claiming an item.
    • Ask for an inspection period particularly if it’s an expensive item.
    • Insist on trackable payments/shipping to verify where items are.
    • Use secure payment methods, Paypal, credit cards if possible.
    • Check to see if the user has any feedback ratings at the top of the thread posting.
    • Unless payment has been made, the item is not “claimed”.
    • You can get a pretty good sense of someone’s character on the phone.
    • Use our Buyers And Sellers Feedback forum - here.


    Tips for Sellers:

    • Include clear photos detailing condition and showing brand, model numbers, etc.
    • Never send an item without receiving a cleared payment.
    • Ensure your item travels well, so pack it up appropriately.
    • Get tracking on your shipment, and provide it to the buyer asap.
    • Always include shipping insurance in your posting.
    • Check to see if the user has any feedback ratings at the top of the thread posting.
    • Unless payment has been made, the item is not “claimed”.
    • You can get a pretty good sense of someone’s character on the phone.
