where is the best place to buy used guns
I just read the thread "Really need some advise" in which the question asked was "what kind of gun should I buy and should he buy at the up coming gun show'. He got some great advice. It got me thinking and I came up with this question "where is the best place to buy used guns?" I've seen them at gun shows with big price tags. I've heard stories here on great deals at pawn shops. A few months back I was looking to sell some guns to make some changes in my collection. I found in the paper and ad stating "I buy used guns" so I called and they said bring them in and offered me next to nothing for them. It was a pawn shop. Now I live in Texas which makes it easy to purchase and sell both rifles and handguns with out a FFL.. Now I wish I had put the same ad in the paper and have people looking to sell their use guns for quick needed cash. I have the blue book and others to give me an idea and I would be picky in what I buy. I would NOT give out great deals like the one I gave propellerhead who said he didn't have much money and shows up in one of the nicest cars I've seen with a beautiful gun loving women.(just had to jab him he's a real nice guy) Also how do you go about buying guns from people who have pasted away. Most of the time it's the women who survive and don't know what to do with the guns. My Mother-in-law had a friend looking to sell her husbands' guns and he past away many years ago. I told her to have her call me. I took the blue book over and showed her what they were worth and also how much she could get for them. I didn't want them or I would of made her an offer. I do know a number of you on this forum live in states that would make it hard to do this. I wish I had done this when I had the money. Your thoughts??????
