Your a good friend. Breaks my heart when I see people get 50 cent on the dollar at gun stores where I can't even find a parking space. Sellers market & 4 more years of Obama & Pelosi - not likely to change. Ammo shortage just fuels the fire.

So it worked out this morning. Sold the Moss 835 and the H&R revolver.

Gonzilla, I can't stand to see people sell collections to scumbag dealers who pay them 50% or less of what the items are worth only to turn around and list them for 20% more than they are worth. It's kinda nice to see what kinda folks are out buying these days. Most of what I've sold so far has been to older gentlemen, say mid 50's or older. But they get a nice well cared for guns, and the seller gets a fair shake on the price. Everyone wins.

I hear ya but I would like to see the guns go to people who will actually use them ! Age is unimportant to me, well - I'd like to think I'd drop my price a wee bit for two cases:

1. Young lads first gun - It's always a special occasion.

2. Old gents last hunt - also a special event.

Was reading Thomas Merton last night, he said the city hasn't changed since the time of the Desert Fathers (4th Century) every man for himself. Charity is a virtue I've read about but rarely see in practice.

Kinda like "Mother Nature," given half a chance, she will Ya ! (I would normally say every single time but I just saw a "special needs" child who got lost in the woods of Maine and was found 12 miles from house OK by game wardens on TV. Always an exception to the rule.)
