    It's not so much the site you have to worry about as it is more the individual seller.

    I have bought quite a few guns off gunbroker and never had a problem. Have window shopped at gunsamerica but never bought anything there. I live in Georgia and we have a free outdoor magazine called Georgia Outdoor News. They have a marketplace section on their site and I like to shop there because most everything on there is close enough I can go meet the seller and pick up the gun myself. www.gon.com/marketplace/

    That's cool,the other issue I have is having an idea of what stuff is worth and i know that comes with time and experience,with the gov doin what it's doin makes it even tougher.at 53 you'd think I'd have an idea but not so much.

    Assuming you're talking guns. If it is bought from a supplier you know what you paid for it and can figure what you can sell it for from there. If it is a gun someone is selling to you, you can go on an auction site and see what people are paying for them.
    It's not hard.

    Also you have to keep in mind that if you buy off the internet your going to have to figure in the cost of shipping which usually is $20/$40 plus unless you have a FFL your going to have to pay a local dealer which will be around $25. Also I can only speak for my dealer but he won't except a firearm from anyone but another FFL holder.
