Was wondering how those who have firearms you want to sell go about it if you don't use an online auction or want to ship them.

I know if I sell them to a gun business I'll lose money but I like the satisfaction of knowing that they will no longer be registered somewhere in my name.

Any good tips?

You might have some success finding a local gun "collectors" group which may or may not have shows.  I guess it depends on how many you want to sell as to whether this is a one-time or casual sale as opposed to a business.

If you sell on consignment the process of using a shop is not quite the haircut of selling outright to them.

We have a local online sales site similar to craigslist that allows guns to be sold.  I'd look for something similar or place an add in the local paper.

Varies. Are you in need of upland tradition?

I just watched the first ten minutes of the mid day local news and there were 3 crimes involving firearms reported with one a murder.
Just like to take precautions.

I can understand your concern for kooks in Maine.

In Idaho, public records can be searched by name and will show all arrests, tickets, etc. for a person. I did a quick search for Maine and only found pay sites. It would seem that Maine should have a free site for public record searches.

You could also talk with a local FFL and have him do the transfer for you.  It might cost the buyer $20 or so.

You would think so. They provide a ton of other free stuff on the tax payers dime.

Thanks for checking!
