Stunning Gun Show Advertisement

Atlanta talk radio is advertising the upcoming Marietta GA Gun & Knife Show. Totally stunned by lead in saying " if have rare gun collection want to sell, have buyers paying up to $10,000 for quality collections". $10k would not cover even one of my nicer collector grade firearms. Found it funny they specifically mentioned quality, rare and collections (plural as in multiple firearms) and can pony up to $10k for them all in one sentence. How many users here could walk in with two FAL's that $10k wouldn't touch even at wholesale investor prices? Personally think a "collection" would be a minimum of three firearms or more, quality means really nice and add rare then prices would be closer to six figures than three. They even have reloading and loaded ammo for sale along with new and used guns! Wow, I might have to load up and drive to the big city and see the show... Nahh, bet the basement gun room has more interesting items and less hassle to get in.

$10k would barely cover the cost of a single transferable.

And many of them go for $18-$30k

There are many widows that have no clue how to sell firearms at their real worth, and "just want them out of the house", that will fall for this scam..

Yep.

Anytime something enters or leaves my collection, it is updated in an Excel file including FMV and emailed to my wife and to one of my son's who would be administrator if wife and I went out together. They know how to sell and who to go to for help as needed.
