I've got a New England Pardner Pump 18" that I've had forever and have never shot. I'm curious to know a trade-in value or if I should just keep it............?
Keep it. You can never realize the full value of a gun, especially if it is an off-brand.
My opinion: Check for the choke. If cylinder bore, load slugs and keep it in your house, away from children and inquisitive adults. Make sure it'll handle the loads you wish to put in it.
Used, say, $175 or so. Saw this on GunsAmerica.com.;
I just picked a brand new one from Walmart for $173 OTD. I would also recommend to keep it as a SHTF emergency gun.
eta AND make sure you function check it, so it'll go bang every time.
Seriously: if you aren't hard up for ca$h then keep it for emergencies. The LAST gun that oppressive governments tend to take from the peons is the shotgun.
