Gotta sell one..../cry

Seems like every time I get a decent amount of money saved up something happens and I have to drop every last cent to solve one issue or another.

The latest rendition of this sad tale is that I just had to have a new clutch installed on the car. After draining my savings account, I was still short by several hundred, which I borrowed from the bank of Mom.

Needless to say, the debt must be repaid and to do so I am parting with my Bersa Thunder 45 UC Pro - the only one I never really warmed up to.

I am planning to sell private party & FTF in my own state and area, but I am wondering what a fair asking price would be. It's duotone with nickel slide and matte frame and, lacking an exact count, roughly 500 rounds old.

Any idea what I can expect to get out of it?

ck on gunbroker and armslist and see what they are going for on there and price accordingly. if I am doing a FTF sale I usually price it $50 higher than what the online sale prices are. If someone buys one online they have to add in shipping ($25) and FFL paperwork ($25+/-) to the purchase price anyway.

That may happen anyways, but for the moment I need it

That's encouraging, though I never invested in more than 2 Uncle Mike's nylon IWBs - 1 LH and 1 RH.

Though I do have a spare mag, and those tend to be pricey for Bersas

my guy was trying to stay off the government grid, so he probably paid more than your standard owner. i love when someone else's paranoia benefits me
