    Question Newbie - Where do I post?

    Hi all-

    I looked around and this looks like the best and most popular forum for handguns on the web. I will need some help! My wife and I are at retirement age and about to buy our very first handguns for either of us!

    I'm brand new to this forum and handguns in general and I joined here hoping I could get some help! Years ago I used to hunt a lot and owned long guns which I sold years ago. I have a DAN Wesson revolver in VERY good condition that I recently inherited. My wife and I want to go to a gun show and sell it and use the money to help buy matching (2) Kel-Tec 9MM Pistols and take a Concealed Carry class together - How romantic!

    My question is - which room in handgunforum.net should I post a question to get some help as to how much my Dan Wesson .22LR pistol might be worth either to sell outright or as partial trade for the Kel-Tec's. - I will post the info here and in another room after I get some suggestions of where is best.

    I don't see a model number on this Dan Wesson revolver. It says- DAN WESSON ARMS CAL .22LR, on the barrell and on the receiver (Is that what it's called? - I'm brand new to handguns!) it says DAN WESSON ARMS MONSOON, MASS USA 10789 (serial number?). That is ALL - I see no other letters or numbers on the gun at all except a little DW emblem on each side of the grip. If there is a model number I don't know what it is. I took a photo of the gun and will try to attach it to this post. ANY help or suggestions on the worth of the Dan Wesson or any advice what we are trying to do will be greatly appreciated. As far as getting the worth of the Dan Wesson would someone suggest another room other than this welcome room where I should post?

    Thanks to all - Nice to meet you and I hope to be involved regularly on this forum in the future - THANKS!

    Welcome!

    You might try posting your question(s) in the General Revolver Area forum. Lots of knowledgeable sixgun folks hang out there.

    Even with advice given from these fine folks, you may want to take the gun to two or three different people in your area and get opinions/offers from them.

    What part of Texas are you in?

    Welcome aboard from the sandpile.
    If there is any way you can afford to keep the D.W. do so. I have a D.W. from about the same era (Monsoon, Mass) and it is a wonderful piece of American craftmanship. (Model 714-2 in .357 magnum)
    If you need to sell it, go to the CZ forum and ask there. CZ owns D.W. now, and there is a section for D.W. there. That's probably a good place to find someone who is D.W. minded, and willing to give a reasonable price.
    There are also some on-line gun auction sites where you can put a minimum price, then you sell to the highest bidder. They need to be paid, so check the fine print.
    If you're new to this, be sure to check the laws concerning shipping a firearm. It has to go through an FFL dealer, and they need to be re-embersed for thier time.(paid)
    A buyer will need to know whether it is blue or stainless, the barrel length, and if it has a fixed or adjustable sight.
    I bought mine in a gun store about five years ago. It is stainless steel, with a 2 1/2 inch bbl, fixed sight. I paid $230 + tax.
    If you really want to sell it, I might be interested. I need a .22. Figure what you want and post it in the Classified Section.
    Here's the CZ-DW forum. http://p201.ezboard.com/bczechpistols82792
    Good luck.

    Welcome from the mountian top in North Carolina. Keep the .22 for practice with ammo much cheaper and will pay for itself. Then get your carry set and have better control with them.
