Official Ruger Talk Forum "Pay it Forward" Thread If you have any extra gear, post it here and send it (for free) to the first person who responds IN THIS THREAD. Pay it forward is all about giving and, well, paying it forward. Rules: # 1- 1 item per person, unless an item is unclaimed for 14 days. Also, the donator gets to decide if all items go together to one person, or to separate the items. #2- Once a member claims an item, a total of 30 days must elapse before the same individual can claim another item. After the 30 day grace period, the member is free to claim another item that he may need/want. #3- If you are claiming an item we encourage you to post an item FOR someone to claim. This isn't mandatory but in the spirit of this thread we do ask for you to contribute. If you are found to be claiming item after item as soon as the grace period is up, and are abusing this thread you will be warned. If you continue, you will be banned from participating in the thread any further. #4- Absolutely no dibs may be called through PM. All transactions must take place here in this thread to keep things fair. #5- Absolutely NO CHARGING, with one exception: If an item is large, the donator can ask the recipient to pay shipping. Otherwise, the item is free. #6- No "reneges". If you post something up as a free item, don't "ebay" it off after. That goes against the spirit of this thread. If you don't want to participate, that's fine! But don't offer up an item and then change your mind, or you will be banned from receiving. #7- ABSOLUTELY NO REQUESTS, PERIOD. This is not Craigslist wanted section, do not post any kind of requests. That is not in the spirit of this. #8- You must be a member for a minimum of 30 days with a post count of at least 25 in order to participate. If 25 posts is all you have we will check those posts. If you got them all quickly by spamming the forum simply to claim an item you will be removed from this thread. #9- Once an item is claimed, EDIT YOUR POST (or as a Staff member to do it) "Gone- to <username>" #10- When possible please include a picture of the item. Ready..............Set.......................Go! Don't forget guys, when you give away an item go back and edit your item post with "Gone to "<username>".
