I've not laid eyes on any of the firearms other than a high end browning double 20ga.
I really don't want to do the leg work honestly. I'm pretty flush on firearms right now.
I tried to meet up with him last night to give him some of these options.

True that.... i can't even believe that came out of my mouth. Haha

There are a few siblings involved so piecing the collection is not going to happen. None of them want to deal with the dickering, shipping, hassle etc.
they are leaning towards Cabelas's.
Ive not seen this collection but would love to. Briefly browsed the list.. it is NICE :hunt2:
I may ask for a copy of the list to tease you with. (And me)

If there's no chance of the group wanting to sell individually (which would guarantee the best sales results), all of you would be better off just breaking the lot up into thirds, quarters, or whatever the case may be, and dealing with those lots as you see fit. A single lump sale is going to result in a hit no matter who you sell to, or how you cut it. Someone in your group may owe it to the departed to seek a fair value. If it were me, I'd take your portion of the lot and start here. What do you estimate the entire lot's value to be?

Not my lot JL. Just started the thread for info and presented it to the seller. They took that info and will Use it. But at this time looks like they want a quick turn around and do not
Want to deal with individual sales. Can you imagine how time
Consuming that would be with a hundred guns?

Sorry Quad, missed the neighbor mention. There are some platforms nowadays where the thought of the nightmares associated w/ individual sales can be reduced, at least partly. If they weren't into the idea of quickly creating a stock template where all you had to do was add a description and photos than I'd definitely suggest a consignment type of deal vs. an outright sale. At least there, it's a win win for all of them.

Sounds like they should just sell the lot to Cab's or something.  :tup: Must be blue bloods or something, the big timers I know will squabble over a decimal just on principle?

I'm looking for a gun for my cousin. He is getting into shooting skeet and he asked me to keep my ear to the ground for him. Does he have any shotguns that would fit that mold?

I deal with Dave at Northwest Gun and Pawn and he has always been fair to me when purchasing firearms.  I have never sold a gun so I can't speak for that side of it.  I also don't know what crossing the state line means for the sale to Cabelas and if they will take a large hit from that as well.

Hadn't thought about that. But I'm sure since there is a presence in WA that wouldn't be a concern

Crossing the state line in this instance should not be an issue if selling to Cabela's, which holds a Federal Firearms License.

Sharp Shooting has recently advertised that they buy entire gun collections:http://www.sharpshooting.net/

Having sold a few guns to Cabela's and Double Eagle Pawn, the best you can expect is 50% of the real value; be it Cabela's or some other pawn store (like Northwest Pawn...Forget him; he'll "low ball" you every time!), they are buying your guns to re-sell them; not because they want them for themselves.

With the Pawn Shop 50% Rule in mind, I can vouch for Cabela's and Double Eagle Pawn.
