Best approach for estate sale guns?
 
Hi all, I'm new to the forum. This is my first post. I live in Washington State. I have over a dozen rifles to sell, but I didn't see a "for sale" category. I have an image link with all the guns and description.

My question is "where would I post this?" I don't want to break any forum rules, so I thought I would ask the community here before proceeding.

Classifieds in the bar under the Firearms Talk header. Stop in at the introduction thread and tell us about yourself.

Armslist.com is good too.

Stop by the introductions thread and say Hi, let me welcome you here though.

Are you a firearms enthusiast? Do you want to be? Maybe rather than selling them off right away you might want to wait awhile and learn something about the guns you have. In doing that you can learn enough not to be taken advantage of in a sale, and perhaps you might decide to keep some or all of them and embark on a new adventure in your life. Did they come from someone close to you? If my father were to leave behind a collection of anything I would want to learn about what made them dear to him before selling them off. A couple of years ago one of my neighbors, Steve, lost his father (actually his father died) and Steve put an ad on Craigslist for his dad's Jeep parts collection. I advised him to pull the ad and wait on it for at least a year. He is glad that I did suggest that as he would have regretted selling everything off.

Anyhow, food for thought.

BTW, whatcha got for sale? Maybe we can take care of it right here!
