-- "Taking our two passions and merging them into a single website is the goal of The Arms Cellar", says co-founder Tom Morley. "Like our users, we are big firearms enthusiasts, always looking for better pricing and a smoother, safer online experience. After finding ourselves frustrated with the outdated marketplaces that exist, we quickly realized that with the high commissions our competitors charge, it was impossible for dealers to offer great pricing and make a modest profit", he added. When asked to elaborate, he concluded "We’ve built ArmsCellar.com to eliminate these problems and provide buyers and sellers with a better option - a cleaner, intuitive, feature rich interface, much lower fees, a focus on social media to promote products, and no-risk create-for-free listings - we hope to start a grassroots movement in the online sales market – from top-to-bottom it really is leaps and bounds above anything out there".Seller Can Win a Free Smith & Wesson
