With private gun sales, it can take a while to sell your gun. You might not know a private individual who is interested in buying a gun right now, so you'll have to look for one. Many social media sites and other traditional methods of advertising pre-owned items have very strict rules against advertising firearms, so this makes it that much harder for you to find someone who is interested in private sales. Local gun shows can work for firearm sales, but you'll have to wait until one comes around. All of these roadblocks can make it hard for a private citizen to find a buyer.

Sell Guns the Legal Way at Our Pawn & Gun Store

Selling a gun privately is something that you have to do at your own risk. It's important to follow all applicable laws. There are state laws and federal law that you have to worry about, and many people aren't familiar with the gun laws that go along with selling a gun. You might be worried about selling to a prohibited person or somehow facing criminal charges and jail time due to accidentally violating firearm regulations at a state or federal level. Not having a paper trail to cover yourself during the sale or transfer of a firearm is likely something you're concerned about.

It's normal to be worried about all of these issues. Selling to an FFL dealer is a good way to make sure you're following requirements and the law when you're selling used or new guns. Come see us if you want to sell guns the legal way, and we'll help!
