Missouri Marketplace Rules

NOTE: If not pointed out below, then check the FAQ's.

Firearms, Knives & other Weapons:

If selling or trading a weapon, then read this ENTIRE section (especially what is in red). Per state law, a purchase permit and background check ARE NOT REQUIRED for people buying assault weapons, shotguns and rifles from private sellers, including sales at gun shows, swap meets, or through internet or newspaper advertisements. Therefore, MMP will allow the selling, trading and buying of 2 of these types of firearms: 1) Rifles & 2)Shotguns are allowed. The third, assault weapons, will be allowed with restrictions. If the assault weapon is on the following list, then it can't be sold or traded on MMP:

1) Norinco, Mitchell, and Poly Technologies Avtomat Kalashnikovs (all models);
2) Action Arms Israeli Military Industries UZI and Galil;
3) Beretta Ar70 (SC-70);
4) Colt AR-15;
5) Fabrique National FN/FAL, FN/LAR, and FNC;
6) SWD M-10; M-11; M-11/9, and M-12;
7) Steyr AUG;
9) Revolving cylinder shotguns such as (or similar to) the Street Sweeper and Striker 12.
10) Guns with grenade launchers
11) Any machine gun type that is capable of firing more than one shot automatically, without manual reloading, with a single function of the trigger.
12) "Copies" or "Duplicates" of any of these weapons.

Handguns are still not allowed on MMP, since state law requires people buying or otherwise acquiring ownership of a handgun to obtain a purchase permit from local law enforcement, which requires applicants to go through a criminal background check. Non-firearm posts such as air rifles, bb guns, co2 guns, paintball guns are also allowed on MMP. Knives are allowed for sale or trade on MMP, but switchblade knives and butterfly knives are not allowed. Also not allowed for sale or trade on MMP are Knuckles, firearms silencers, a short barreled rifle or shotgun, a gas gun, and an explosive weapon. It is recommended that you put in your posting that "this is being sold as a collectors item only" to cover yourself of any lawsuit that may arise as being a seller of such item. Any weapon not mentioned in this section must be preapproved before being posted to any MMP board.

Animal Ads:

There are no restrictions except for endangered species, which are NOT allowed.

Auction Ad & Other Classified Links:

These are allowed as long it is related to what you are selling or trading.

Your Personal Website Selling A "Product":

Allowed only if you physically own the item(s). Affiliate links to 2nd hand party products are not allowed due to the fact that they clutter up the MMP selling forum with affiliate ads.

Service Ad Posts:


Wanted Ad Posts:


Free Item/Animal Posts:


Adult Related Items (Mature Audiences):

Allowed only with the special permission of admin or a moderator.

Off Topic Posts:

ANY member found posting a post to the MMP group that isn't within the posting guidelines will be warned first, then if reposted, they will be banned. If your off topic post is "clearly" a SPAM post, then that will lead to being banned immediately from Missouri Marketplace, since SPAM IS NOT TOLERATED.

Items that you don't physically own:

If you are an affiliate of a product or apart of a home party plan, then this is no longer allowed because it clutters up the MMP group with affiliate ads.

Repeat Postings:

You may only repeat your "same" posting once per every 5 days. Bumps the same.

Other State Posters:

ONLY if you are a border state from Missouri can one post on Missouri Marketplace:

(ie. southern Iowa, eastern Kansas, western Illinois, northern Arkansas, north eastern Oklahoma, southeastern Nebraska, western Kentucky or western Tennessee).
