We have no kids but have few nephews that hunt and one been out here hunting elk/deer. Wife and I are 81, she plans on hunting archery deer/elk this year and I plan on hunting archery cow tag and rifle bull tag.

We talked to one nephew about rifles and at some point him and his boy's get rifles,all reloading stuff. We have lawyer handle everything plus what my wife want to give to her nieces.

I've started to worry about this because I have no heirs or relatives that are shooters. In addition to a very large collection of firearms I also have a huge assortment of reloading equipment and supplies which I'm sure is even harder to dispose of than the firearms. Over my lifetime I figure I've got well over a hundred grand invested on all the stuff.

Looks like you and I are in the same boat and it's sinking.

LSB Auctions. https://lsbauctions.com/
Based in California, but also operating out of Wyoming for buyers that don't want their stuff going to CA, or for guns that can't go to CA (or can't be transferred in CA and have to be 'exported' for sale).

Sell guns to pay for hunts! Exotic deer such as axis and fallow make outstanding trophies. Jack

I didn't get interested in firearms until I was 45 years old. Bought a Rossi revolver which I hardly ever fired. Lent it to my daughter a while later and bought an old S&W. Hmm. Why is the trigger so much nicer and why does the bullet go right where I want it to?
The many gun forums (including this one) were invaluable in helping me learn more. I became a student and collector of older S&W revolvers, and assembled a small collection of these and other firearms I met along the way.
So don't assume all the younger people in your family will remain uninterested their whole lives. Giving them a family heirloom might even spark an interest.

Anyone who needs an heir to hand their firearms down to, I'm available.

I have a ten-year-old son and I've told him that he gets all of my firearms when I die. Right now, he's super excited about the prospect of getting to own them all. If he changes his mind I'll help sell them off when I'm to old to enjoy them.
