Do you have a gun you would like to trade? Do you have almost enough, but not quite, to cover a purchase? Go on GunBroker.

Look at every pistol you are interested in and do what I do. I send out 100 questions to seller and offer a trade or less than asking. For every hundred I send out... I get 10% positive replies, 10% negative replies and the rest no answer.

On my offer to trade the .45LC Taurus... I have 30 positives fgrom Alaska to Florida. I believe I am trading with an Alaskan dealer for a new Bersa .380 and a used AMT backup. He has no real use for those guns in Alaska and the Taurus in .45LC goes for a premium there. The catch? I'll pay shipping both ways.

It works... just be patient. Also, be aware, if you have a spam-blocker on your puter, your replies from the dealer will be blocked. Check before you empty your junk mail or bulk mail!

Good Luck!!!

Actually I do need to thin out a little. I have a few I could part with and not miss. Thanks Paul, I may try that after I fix my truck. :p

You ALL missed the part that many dealers take less than the asking price. Just ask them if they'll take what you have to offer. :wink:

You said trade first. The thought of selling a gun sent my head spinning and I was lost after that. :? :wink:

You said Gunbroker, the auction site. Did you mean GunsAmerica, the classifieds site? Gunbroker usually doesn't show a buy it now price or the desired selling price because of the auction format.
