I usually try to sell guns on armslist locally (to avoid having to ship and deal with FFLs). However, I can sometimes make more money by selling them on gun forums. My last resort is gunbroker because of the fees.

you can find a gun store willing to sell your collection on consignment.

Or you could bring them to a gun show and sell them locally.
Do your homework, look up the prices online, when you arrive to the gun show, compare your prices with the competition.

Make it a lifetime plan and mission to teach the next generation of Americans the truth about firearms, knives, hunting, fishing, target shooting and other outdoor sports before you pass on. Develop an interest early on so they are more than qualified when that day comes. Then you don't sell them at all. You pass them on to your children, nephews, nieces......even the kid that comes from a single mom one parent home down the road whom you befriended years ago.

You're going to be rich someday kid.......trust me!!

Isn't it interesting that guns just multiply on their own at a low cost?

the dealer will give you a LOT less than half of what he thinks he can (eventually) sell the guns for, if he's buying a large collection. Especially if he thinks (or you make him certain) that you dont know what you've got. BEWARE consignment deals. Most gun dealers. have a flat charge for showing the gun. IF the guns don't sell and you take them back from the gunshop, you will have to pay that fee (on each gun)!

Open a Gun broker account and sell them yourself. Always ship to a FFL dealer by UPS and your fine. I get top dollar for my guns, a dealer is going to rape you on price.
