Last week I posted a 8 gun cabinet for sale on kijiji, now get this because it said gun in ad description it was delayed in viewing for over 14 hours wtf
Just because it said Gun like come on it’s a gun cabinet to make guns stored in safe way, after I searched kijiji and only one other cabinet was listed in Edmonton (others by online dealers) but only one private sale
Like come on kijiji I was selling a safety item not a AK47
I read there policy on posting, no guns, ammo, or gun parts I guess if safety is against there policy now or will be
So if don’t have the money to buy one new just hide it under your bed
My rant of the day

Kijiji delays postings until they review them. Earlier this year I posted nine scopes and had to wait until the next day to see them on the site. Every time I edited the ad to mark one as "sold" the ad disappeared for a while until it was approved again.

Interesting, but words are mightier than the sword. And some words raise red flags so careful how you use them. On-line ads on Kijiji, FB marketplace, craigslist, etc anything to do with shooting will do it. What I'd do is post a very good photo and say "storage safe". Anyone using a search function with key words like "gun safe" or "gun storage", etc would trigger your ad to show up. HIH.

yes if you post on kijiji don't use the word gun in your ad it will get flagged automatically
same as paintball guns you need to use paintball marker

:rolleyes: Maybe you should use "lead-pellet/BB air launcher Storage Safety" or just "Pellet/BB Launcher Storage Safety" and put it under home storage category...
