Why You Should Consider Buying Used When You Buy a Gun

Whether you're interested in short-barreled rifles, semi-automatic handguns, long guns, or any other type of firearm, you might be thinking about visiting a local gun shop and buying a brand new gun. There are various ways to make firearms purchases, and new guns are not your only option. The next time you're interested in buying a gun, consider working with a local licensed dealer that sells used firearms, such as Chesapeake Pawn and Gun. We help with both new and used firearm purchases, and if you're a prospective buyer of a used firearm, we're more than happy to help.

​Buy a Gun That's No Longer in Production

Some of our customers prefer us as their local dealer of firearms because we sell all types of firearms, including makes and models that aren't in production anymore. If you're looking for an older gun that simply isn't available brand new anymore, use us as the FFL dealer of your choice. We have guns in stock that you may not find at a gun show or that might be difficult to find through private sales. If you're looking for a certain older firearm, let us know! As your local gun dealer, we'll help you find the gun you're looking for, even if you might not be able to find it at a new gun store.

Save A Lot of Cash on Your Firearm Purchase

Buying a gun doesn't have to be expensive. There are a lot of good deals out there, whether you're looking for semi-automatic pistols, rifles, shotguns, so on. There are many reasons to buy and own firearms, but many people feel restricted on their options due to pricing. It's true that many guns of popular calibers can be expensive. One really easy and effective way to save money on the purchase of your semi-automatic rifle -- or any other gun -- is to buy a pre-owned firearm instead of a brand new one. You can often buy a top-quality gun for a fraction of the price. At Chesapeake Pawn and Gun, we are a licensed firearms dealer and will help you buy the gun you want for less. Whether it's your first time buying a gun or if you have an entire collection of your own, you can save a significant amount of money at the time of purchase if you buy a pre-owned gun from us.

​Purchase a Good-Quality Gun

Whether you're working with unlicensed sellers or your local FFL dealer, you could be concerned about the quality of a pre-owned firearm. It's a legitimate concern. In fact, it's one of the more common questions we get here. You can enjoy peace of mind by buying a pre-owned firearm from us, since you don't have to worry about it not being in good shape. Chesapeake Pawn & Gun is one of the best places to purchase a pre-owned gun if you're concerned about quality.

Buying and selling pre-owned firearms is one of the main things we do here, but we take quality seriously. Once we buy a pre-owned firearm, there's a brief waiting period before we put it up for sale. We'll take the time to carefully check it over and make sure it's in proper shape to be resold. If necessary, we'll handle any repairs that are needed. Not every store that has a federal firearms license has its own in-house gunsmith, but we do. Rest assured, you can feel comfortable in knowing you're buying a pre-owned firearm that's in good condition when you buy from us. There's a lot less risk than with private party transfers!

Buy from Chesapeake Pawn and Gun

You might be interested in buying used for the reasons above, but one concern you might have is -- where should I go to buy a used gun? It might seem like a tough question, since not every local gun store sells pre-owned firearms.

Luckily, you don't have to keep looking for a gun store that sells good-quality, reasonably priced, pre-owned firearms. Let us help you at Chesapeake Pawn and Gun! We follow every local, state, and federal law for handgun sales and all firearm sales. Of course, we'll need to make sure you're 18 or 21 years of age (depending on the particular firearm you're interested in purchasing), see your government-issued identification, and run your name and information through the background check system. After all, we are fully compliant with all federal, state, and local laws. Don't worry, though -- we make the process of buying a pre-owned firearm so easy. Whether you're buying a SIG Sauer, GLOCK, doesn't matter. We'll make it easy to buy an affordable pre-owned gun, all while following all applicable laws.

​Buying a pre-owned firearm is a great solution for many people! Tell your friends and family members about the services we offer here at Chesapeake Pawn and Gun. Come see us, and we'll help you with purchasing a gun. You can even check out our online gun shop to get an idea of our inventory, although you'll need to come in to actually make your purchase. Whether you're looking for a personal defense weapon, a hunting rifle, or any other firearm, we're looking forward to assisting you.
