There are many areas of interest and entertainment here at TaurusArmed.net and one of my favorites is the Firearms forum, or classified section, where members and staff list firearms and firearms-related items for sale or trade.

I am so very pleased with my most recent acquisition from a fellow member, that I decided to share with our vast TA.net family the benefits of participating in the Firearms forum.

One of the threads running in the Firearms forum is the Pay-It-Forward thread where folks are literally giving stuff away! That's right, I said giving stuff away! A member lists an item that they no longer use or need, and whomever sends them a PM (personal message) indicating "I'll take it" gets to claim the prize. The only stipulation is that the person on the receiving end of the deal will then be expected to look around in their range bag, holster box, or pocket knife drawer and come up with something to offer up as a "Pay-It-Forward" gift. The cycle repeats itself over and over, and a perpetual state of giving and receiving continues to bless both the giver and the receiver.

I have enjoyed the benefits of interacting with other forum members on the Firearms forum many times, and always come away feeling as if I came out on the best end of the deals that I've made for the past three years. Also, I will add that, in my dealings with the honest and upright folks on the forum, the processes of buying, selling, trading, etc. have always been smooth and satisfactory transactions.

New members are required by the fair and equitable policies of the Administrators and Super Moderators of this forum to have 50 posts to be able to participate in, and enjoy the benefits of, the Firearms forum.

So come on, guys and gals, jump in on this thread and share remarks or photos of some of your most favorite finds that you've added to your "stuff" from your own dealings on the Firearms forum.

To kick this thread off, I'm posting a photo of my new Taurus PT1911AR .38 Super which is wearing the beautiful, like-new, Pachmayr American Legend Grips that I received in the mail from one of our fine forum members this past Friday! He listed them for sale in the Firearms section, but we talked for a bit and ended up working out a trade that made us both happy. :D:D

Need a lightly-used pocket holster?

One of our members had this Talon pocket holster for sale on the Firearms forum at a very reasonable price just a while back.

(Ruger LCP not included in the deal.);)

In the market for a like-new Theis IWB holster for your PT145 MilPro?

How about an awesome High Noon pocket holster for the parka pocket for your .45 during the winter months?

Both of these fine holsters came into my possession through the generosity of one of our thoughtful forum members.

I peruse the Firearms forum often. Unfortunately, Murphy's Law dictates that when there is an incredible deal to be had
(which happens quite a bit in there) I won't have funds available! I also enjoy taking a peek to see what the guys at
TZ Armory have been up to when they post their creations.

I'm glad to see that the Pay It Forward thread has finally been stickied! I think the whole premise of the thread perfectly
represents the neighborly and helpful attitude we have in this online community.

I enjoy looking at that section never bought anything but I normally check it out daily, just looking for a deal I can't say no to

I got an extra mag with spacer for my 24/7 and some rail covers for my AR.

Sorry no pictures right now.

Thanks for the reminder about this area of the forum Harry.

I probably don't go there often enough.
Well, my friend, you just might be missing out on the "deal of a lifetime":yipee: when you don't scope out the Firearms forum on a daily basis.

For example...I recently bought a couple of "like-new" 10 round magazines for my PT145 for a super-duper price from one of my "TaurusArmed.net-Tradin' Buddies up in Ohio. :)

I was glad to see the Pay It Forward "stickied" too!

Also, it was great that the first one was so successful, that a second one had to be created.:thumb:

I certainly can relate to that!

Here's a little something that I found for sale in our classified section at such a reasonable price that I just knew I couldn't live without it...a really dandy Guru leather pocket holster for my TCP!
