Gilfo, glad you were able to sell your collection. I first saw your sales post on the FGF. I didn't know what to say, so I remained silent. I hope I'm as brave as you when faced with the same situation. I'll keep you in my prayers. And yes, I look forward to meeting you in person one day.

I can sympathize with your plight. I have two family members who are in close proximity to your situation. There are many thousands dollars worth of firearms at stake that are going to be a legal nightmare.

What I would suggest as a simple, painless idea is to find a local store who is sympathetic to your needs, who will sell on commission. You put it in his store, he maintains it in inventory, and you set the price. when it sells he will take a commission, maybe a big one. It costs a lot to run a store, it taes a lot of time to manage an inventory.

Even stores like cabelas will buy guns worth reselling in a market like they have.

So sorry to hear about your illness Gilfo. Glad to hear that you were able to offload most of your collection at a fair price. Praying for you and your family. May God give you and your family strength and comfort.
