4 Things to Remember if You Want to Sell a Gun in Chesapeake

Are you thinking about selling a gun in Chesapeake? If so, you might have a lot of questions. You could be wondering if private gun sales are your best option, or if you should look for licensed firearms dealers to work with. You could be curious about how much you'll get paid or what the process of selling your gun will be. Lots of gun owners come to us at Chesapeake Pawn and Gun with a lot of questions, but we'll make it easy for you to sell a used or like new firearm today.

1. Chesapeake Pawn and Gun Will Buy Your Firearm

One of the first things people wonder about when they want to sell a gun is where they should sell it or who they should sell it to. Private sales might have crossed your mind, so you might have considered finding a private individual and creating a bill of sale. In some cases, selling to a private buyer works out. There are some legalities that you have to worry about when you take this route. You don't want to accidentally sell to a prohibited person or break any state laws or federal law. Plus, it can be time-consuming and inconvenient to find a private buyer who will buy your gun.

The new sport and gun shops often won't buy firearms. You could go to a gun show, but depending on when you want to sell, you might have to wait a few months for local gun shows to be held. This can be highly inconvenient if you're hoping to sell the gun now.

Luckily, you do have options. You can sell your unwanted firearm to Chesapeake Pawn and Gun. We're open six days a week, and any time that we're open, we're buying guns, everything from long guns to pistols. Visit us for fast and effortless firearm sales and a fair price.

Because we are a full-service gun store, we work with all different types of guns. If you're a private citizen who is looking to sell a gun while getting paid fairly and abiding by all firearm regulations (at the state level as well as federal regulations), bring your gun to us!

Of course, how much we'll pay for your firearm depends on the brand, condition, whether or not your particular firearm is in high demand, and so on.

3. You'll Need to Bring Your ID to Sell a Gun

To avoid unnecessary delays, make sure you bring your government-issued ID when you visit our place of business. Gun laws and pawn shop laws require us to ask for your driver's license or ID. That's all you need to worry about bringing, however, except for your gun!

4. You Can Get a Pawn Loan Instead

You could be in a tight spot and thinking about selling your used firearm because you really need the cash. Yet, you might not be particularly thrilled about selling your firearm. There is another way to get money from your gun outside of the sale of could pawn your gun instead! We offer cash loans on used and like new guns of all different types.

There's really no risk if you choose to take a pawn loan. Just come in, and let us know that you're interested in pawning your gun instead of selling it. We will take temporary ownership of the firearm and grant you a cash loan based on its value. You'll be given a 30 day loan, although you can extend the loan later, if you need to...just stop by before your repayment date to inquire about renewing your gun, and we'll help you out.

If you decide you don't, in fact, want to pick up your gun, don't worry about it. We'll just keep and resell it, and you don't owe us anything. Your credit won't even take a hit!
