Terms of Service

Please keep in mind that by registering and using our sites and services, you are agreeing that you have read, and will abide by, our Terms of Service.

We reserve the right to delete, remove, or edit content posted or published on our site. Be aware that if you violate our terms of service, SRF staff may delete, remove or edit your messages. We will not edit forum posts simply for content, grammar, spelling, layout, or meaning, but reserve the right to edit for violations of the TOS, the inclusion of identifying personal information about others, technical problems, and other unforeseen complications.

All of the services we provide on these sites, we provide as a service, and grant you the privilege to use them. If you violate that privilege, either knowingly or unknowingly, we may contact you and ask you to stop. If you persist or become abusive, belligerent, or argumentative with an employee or volunteer staff, we reserve the right, at our discretion, to refuse service, limit or block your access to our website, have your account terminated, contact your Internet service provider, or take legal action.

Our volunteer moderators are doing their jobs and being abused is not part of the job. If you receive a warning about forum post, or find your post missing or edited, please think twice before you send a belligerent email.

While occasionally a moderator may inform a user about a violation, or post a general warning to a forum, photo gallery, or chat room, we have no policy guaranteeing that anyone will be warned about violations on their account, nor any specific number or type of violations that may result in action against their account.

If you have had your ability to log in, post to the forums, or upload to the site rescinded, or had posts or images removed, you may contact any moderator and appeal the action. Any public discussion of actions against a user's account will be removed, and we will not discuss any action against a user's account with anyone but that individual himself or herself.

Any individual who has had his or her account terminated for violations of our terms of service may NOT re-register in any format, under any circumstances. Attempting to circumvent this system by registering under the name of a friend, family member, or any form of alias, will cause the account to be immediately terminated. Anyone who knowingly assists someone in fraudulently obtaining an account will themselves be banned.

Considering the real-time nature of this forum, it is not feasible for us to review every message or confirm the validity of information posted. Please remember that we are not responsible for any messages posted. We do not vouch for or warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message, and are not responsible for the contents of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message, not necessarily the views of Surplus Rifle Forum. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact a moderator immediately by email or PM. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so, within a reasonable time frame, if we determine, at our sole discretion, that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

Users and members of the forum, to include those persons who are not registered members (i.e. persons merely browsing the forum), agree to hold Surplus Rifle Forum, its members and staff harmless for the content of any post. Further, users and members agree that the responsibility for the content of any post is directly the responsibility of the person who made the post and not in any way the responsibility of Surplus Rifle Forum, its staff, or members.

Surplus Rifle Forum provides a Classifieds section in the forum for member use. Surplus Rifle Forum takes no responsibility for the truth or accuracy of these listings, or the quality, safety, or legality of any items offered; and we are not involved in the actual transactions between parties. Any sales or trade agreements reached through use of this forum are the responsibility of the parties involved. Surplus Rifle Forum will not mediate or arbitrate any dispute, monetary or otherwise, between forum users in this or any other section.

You agree, through your use of the Surplus Rifle Forum or mere viewing of its contents, that you will not use the Forum, or its resources to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or that otherwise violates any law. You agree not to post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or by the Forum.
