Buds used gun inventory

I have made it a habit to check put buds used handgun inventory every couple of days. The last few weeks, they have only had a couple listed. Does anyone know why? Are they getting out of the used business?

Many buyers. Few sellers?

maybe, it just seems strange. They typically have 20-30 guns and the last few weeks they have had the same 3

I noticed in my local gun shop they dont have many revolvers. ALOT of new guns, not many used. Out of 26 ar15s only one used.

They have a ton of used guns in their store. They probably just don't want to put the labor into listing but a fraction of them.

Give them a call. You might find that most of their used guns aren't listed online.

Uhm...

Election fall out?

Gun sales are once again surging, as are sales of other shooting-related products.

Same thing happened in 2007-2009.

well used guns are a crapshoot. most of us dont want to buy one without being able to look at it. and most people who get one dont have the option of having it sent to a good who can tellif its crap or not.

for example from their website.

they were selling police revolvers from major cities in austrilai. all sw model 66. nice looking guns. but customers were ordering guns listed as safe to shoot, and finding them with cracked forcing cones and other defects that would have cost 2-3 times the purchase price to have fixed. not exactly a good bargain.
