They are both now gone. $450 for the 410, $450 for the 12. $900 total. It's a sellers market.

The outgoing FFL fee was $25 but I made the buyer pay it. Plus, I forgot that my membership at the range gives me 3 free transfers a year so + $25 for me. I made $900 off the pair. Like I had guessed in the beginning, close to $1000 for the pair. I think however, I need to start buying my guns from these guys who can find them for $250 so I can start my own little business. I'll take $200 profit any day of the week paying $250 and selling for $450.

That's great - congratulations. But your idea is illegal you know, right?

Shut those guys' dirty mouths and live large!

Either way, no matter who's right or wrong, NOW'S the market to sell into -- you'll never get more!! Hey, maybe if you stand outside The Moonlight Bunny Ranch and offer 'em for sale to the customers...

Now go get that windfall, and some satisfaction, then come back and tell us how ya did!!!
OP: Express go on sale for around $300 NIB at Cabelas. I paid $269 for mine w $20 rebate. You have done well.

HOCK rooting for the 870 Express...Oh Lord, just take me Now !

Yea, I know. Anything where you can make money these days is on the verge of, it not totally, illegal. I've done well just helping folks liquidate their personal collections from inheritance and downsizing. In the process, I have managed to collect as a fee, by choice of the sellers in which to pay me, a 1963 manufactured 1894 Winchester 3030 lever action along with a Norinco ATD 22. Plus, I still have two .50 cal black powder rifles (which are worthless to me and apparently everyone else as I haven't had so much as 1 email on them) a .44 cal black powder 1858 Remington New Army repro by Uberti, and a 1888 Mauser (of unknown caliber) that I can keep or sell and keep the proceeds thereof. I think I made out pretty well overall.

And if anyone is looking, I have a Winchester 1897 and a Winchester 1912 both in 12 gauge to move for another friend.
