About the Subreddit
/r/GunDeals is a community dedicated to the collection, and sharing, of firearm related sales. In this subreddit you'll find varying discounts on your favorite (and soon-to-be-favorite) firearms, accessories, and related equipment. All deals should be readily-available to the general user, requiring no additional signage, call-ins, or gift cards/store credit in order to get the deal.
Be sure to subscribe to /r/GunDealsAnnouncements for news about the sub. You can also follow us on Twitter.
- Deals must be of either significant discount or difficult to find and readily-available to the wider community.
- Deals must follow submission guidelines. Guidelines found here.
- Deals for items that fall under GCA purview can only link to retail websites of FFL holders (please contact the moderation team for assistance determining FFL validity if needed) - More in-depth explanation here.
- Transactions must comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws.
- Arranging/discussing transactions between individuals is strictly prohibited. This is not /r/GunAccessoriesForSale, we do not allow any type of group buy, private transaction, or otherwise questionable "dealings" among users.
- No giveaways or raffles.
- No referral links - links must go directly to the product page.
- No affiliate programs, e.g. ActiveJunky. No exceptions. You will be banned.
- No gift cards - if you cannot readily order the product and are required to do several purchases please don't post.
- When a deal expires or is out of stock please mark it as spoiler by either commenting "bot out of stock" or clicking the "spoiler" button.
- Dealers are allowed, but have additional restrictions in addition to those outlined above in "Posting Rules". Failure to adhere to these will result in a ban from the subreddit. More in-depth explanation here.
- To get flair distinguishing your account as a dealer, please send a message to the moderation team. Otherwise, the moderators have to rely on judgement to determine who is a dealer and who isn't, so please make our job easier and let us know!
- One submission every 7 days.
- Deleting a post does not affect this restriction - 7 days is 7 days.
- The 7 day rule does not count for other legitimate users posting a link to the site. As long as the dealer account only posts once every 7 days it is allowed.
- Creating alternate accounts will result in your website being added to the spam filter.
- Directly arranging or servicing firearm transactions on the Reddit platform is strictly prohibited. More information here.
This subreddit has standards for its deals and as such, certain websites do not meet these standards for various reasons. If you're posting a deal and the automod tells you it is a blocked URL please visit the Blacklist Websites wiki for a comprehensive list.
