David, comment from another user here.
Buddies rules are tough for new guys as there are many of them that must be learned.
However, the trade off is several. First, traffic on Sturm is huge and its the
place for NFA sales. Second, Buddy has booted a number of the weasels and encourages reporting of bad sellers (or buyers). Third, you don't deal with the garbage like pops up on subguns where all the seems to matter is that $5 for an ad is paid (see this link
for an example). Fourth, Sturm is free and the option to donate to the FL program is just that, an option.
Also, the Albert's deserve much of the credit for keeping that place running - David, is it you or Andy who does the behind the scenes work?
