Sunday morning, and the Grands are out helping dad mow the yard.
I've officially sold all nine guns that I put on GunBroker now and I'll ship the last one out tomorrow. It takes a little time to sell things on GunBroker especially if you're selling something that's somewhat collectible because there's not as many people that are interested in collectibles as there are people that are interested in a deer rifle for instance. But using the Internet to sell a gun is still the best way to get top dollar because it's exposed to so many people there's a much better chance somebody is gonna want it.
Even though I've explained it before I'll quickly go through it again. The guns I sell are sent to a legal gun dealer that has a federal firearms license [ FFL ] in the town where the buyer lives. The gun dealer that the buyer chooses emails me a copy of his FFL, and by law I can only send the gun to the address that's on that license. When I get paid for the gun I then send the gun to that gun dealer. That FFL license holder does a background check on the buyer and if he passes the FFL holder then gives the gun to the buyer. So the purchaser of that gun has to do exactly the same thing that he or she would have to do if they walked into that gun dealer and asked to buy a gun off the shelf.
I've decided not to list anymore guns on GunBroker for now because dealing with it takes up too much of my time and uses up too much of my limited brain power. So I will probably hang on to the rest until next summer and deal with them then. One of the good things about having collectible guns is they become more valuable every year, so barring some disaster there's nothing wrong with sitting on guns for as long as possible.
the Arctic Fox rests lazily in the background as the old boondork snaps a picture and then runs home and locks the door before someone attempts to put some kind of lawn care equipment in my hands, having long since sworn off of lawns and all the paraphernalia it takes to care for them.
