I take my son down to the bus stop this morning and I run into my neighbor who owns a local indoor range. He does all my transfers for me for $5, and we do some bird hunting together every now and then, but I almost never buy any guns from his shop. He doesn't really sell guns; range members can order anything they want for 5% - 10% over cost depending upon the level of membership, and there are always a dozen or so consignment guns at the range for silly prices, set by their owners.

He tells me this morning that one of the guys who had three guns up for consignement at the shop (and asking top dollar + 10%) just bought a new HD bike and needed to appease the SO, so he offered up the three guns at the shop for $1200. My friend wasn't interested so he asked me if I wanted them.

1. NIB Bushmaster XM15 E2S A3
2. NIB Arsenal USA SA-M7
3. Used pre-ban MAC-11 with a bunch of accessories

No tax, since he'll do it as a person-person sale (though I asked him to ask the owner if he would just do a private sale), but worse comes to worse, $5 for the NICS check.

I'll keep the Bushy and the AK, but leave the Mac for sale at the range. Currently it's priced at $400 (which is about right, given all the crap that comes with it), but I'll drop that down to $300 for a quick sale, leaving me with only $900 in the keeper rifles. Since that's not much more than he cost of the Bushy alone, I figure I'm just about getting a free AK out of the deal.

Of course, the way my life goes I'll show up at the range tomorrow to pick the rifles up and the guy will have changed his mind.

Hopfully he will hold to it but on deals like that you almost have to act imedeately (spelling? right away) or your out of luck.
Good Luck

alpo -

The guns are in the posession of my friend the range owner right now, so I'm not worried about them disappearing. He'll tell the owner that they are sold today. I just worry that the owner will have seller's remorse and decide he didn't really want to sell them. If we do it as a person to person sale, the forms need the seller's signature here in PA. If they come throughthe dealer as a sale, I'll have to pay sales tax.

Well..hope you get them. I only find those good deals when I don't have any money to get them and when I have the extra money can't get any good buys. Murphy's Law.

Look at that!! You've already sold the gun you didn't want. And you haven't even bought the things yet.

Harleys aren't cheap; neither is keeping peace with the SO. Those two facts indicate, to me at least, a more-than-better chance of you getting your deal. I'm jealous.
