They have tightened restrictions, probably just because they kept geting sued fby countries all over the world by things people put up for sale.

They deleted illegal content as fast as they can, when they get that many listings it's impossible to be 100%.

The latest one in India, that they removed, but evidently not fast enough, got thier chief honcho over there arrested.

With all the different states/countries laws regarding firearms and parts, can you really blame them?

GunBroker, etc.. is a better place for those.

Comic books... eBay! I've had good luck there... but like other threads talk about... people lose all sense of value vs price.. You'll probably get too much! :D

I use eBay to generate revenue which, in turn, can:

--Pay the rent

--Pay the electric bill

--Pay the phone bill

--Pay for food

--Pay for clothes

--Pay for books/tapes/CDs

--Pay for car insurance

--Pay for computer stuff

--Pay for petrol

--Pay for primers

--Pay for bullet stock

--Pay for range fees

--Pay for, well, you know... just about ANYTHING that requires cash.

I by no means support myself solely on eBay sales, but I could if I wanted to. It works that well sometimes.
