  SPECIAL Statement regarding the Zimmerman listing     5/12/2016 2:41:31 PM EST  

Late last night, George Zimmerman created a listing on our web site for the gun from the Trayvon Martin case four years ago. Mr. Zimmerman alerted news organizations that began reporting on the listing first thing this morning.

Listings on the GunBroker.com web site are user-generated, exactly like social media posts. Mr. Zimmerman never contacted anyone at GunBroker.com prior to or after the listing was created and no one at GunBroker.com has any relationship with Zimmerman. Our site rules state that we reserve the right to reject listings at our sole discretion, and have done so with the Zimmerman listing.

We want no part in the listing on our web site or in any of the publicity it is receiving.

GunBroker.com prides itself in being a safe and legal way to buy and sell firearms online in full compliance with all Federal, State, and local laws. GunBroker.com proudly supports the Second Amendment rights of the American public.

GunBroker.com will not be fielding press inquiries regarding this matter.

  Sellers: Enhance Your Descriptions Now     4/25/2016 11:43:54 AM EST  

Attention Sellers

GunBroker.com is in the process of launching a responsive View Item page. You can check out the new layout of the view item page by clicking the Preview Link at the top of any View Item page.

This new page layout has been completely redesigned to display your items optimally on Smartphones, Tablets and Desktop displays. We encourage you to go to GunBroker.com on your phone or tablet and check out the new Item Page layout. We think you will like it.

The biggest change that is a result of the responsive design is that GunBroker.com pages are no longer a fixed width. To display optimally on phones and tablets the page layout needs to respond to the size of the device screen. This means that if you are using fixed width content in your HTML, your descrription will not resize. This includes images and tables with fixed widths. Another display style that could be impacted is multi-column layouts. Even if your columns are not fixed width, smaller devices may not have enough room for more than one column to display clearly.

To assist you in revising your items we have compiled a list of Responsive Design Best Practices. These can guide you in updating your design layout. We also offer some Listing Templates that are predefined and will function on the responsive page.

This is also a great time to transition your listings to using Standard Text. Standard Text is reusable text that you can attach to your listings. This will save you from having to post your additional terms of sale in the description on each and every item you list. You can also have a number of different standard text items. This will allow you to use text specific to the type of listing your are creating, for example one for firearms that require FFL transfer and one for accessories.

We hope you are as excited about the new Item Page as we are. We look forward to rolling this out as the exclusive Item Detail page in the upcoming weeks.
