Nothing announced, anyone currently with an advert listed may have had a notification though.
Would you care to share where you heard these things from? reputable source or somebody in the tin foil hat brigade?

In the meantime, sellers will likely be advertising on:

https://www.ozgunsales.com/
https://firearmsales.com.au/
https://ssaagunsales.com/

Or maybe others.
Hope it comes back soon, it was a good place for window shopping and checking historic pricing.

Look you did’nt hear this from me, so just keep it on the quiet, but I heard it has to do with woke antifas building crop circles with 5G to prevent white genocide.

Nah,,,,,,, if anyone was gonna fold, it would be one of the other sites. They hardly get any ads.
Usedguns is far too popular.

Just as long as everyone doesn’t hit the what’s new button at once when it comes back online. We might melt it down again.
Just let me be first, I’ll let you all know if there’s any bargains....
