    New site for selling firearms/items locally

    I've been busy for a while working on a new site for people like me that want to buy stuff locally, but don't have a good resource to find local items.

    There are classifieds plastered all over the web but I don't have time to search all the forums out there.

    So, I put together http://ftffinder.com. It's just about ready for prime time, so if anyone here has something for sale, you can be my guinea pigs.

    Please let me know if part of the site is confusing or isn't intuitive. I still need to make a listing of states that allow FTF transfers, and then only those states will show up when you add an item to one of the firearms categories.

    I'd like to get some feedback on the overall usability of the site.

    Thanks!

    Seems useable. I'd request that sellers put the state in the message title.

    When listing an item, there are fields for location, zip, etc that are all searchable/filterable. So, it will be easy to see all the items in your state/zip/city, etc. I'm going to add a distance search (based on zip) once there are enough items to make it worthwhile. Also, I'm planning on adding a map of all items around the zip you specify in your profile, so you can easily see where items are (zip codes at least).

    I suppose a link to the search page would be a good idea. Thanks!

    Just a quick bump for those that might have missed it before.

    I should have some time in the next week or so to add some new features.

    Let me know if you have other comments or suggestions.

    awesome idea - I hope it takes off for you. Do you have any ideas for marketing the site? Only recommendation would be to get some pics next to each category on the main page but I like the clean & simple look. I don't see anything else that really needs help right now - but I'll keep looking.
