    Heading to the Grand for the first time, this Friday, for a sight seeing/info gathering venture. Just down for the day. I'm thinking of taking a non-trap shotgun (20 ga. 1100 Skeet) to sell but not to trade. Any recommendations for a dealer to see?

    I'll take lots of pics on my walk about and maybe Sue can post them when I get back.

    Thanks!

    You could go see Jim at JJ's guns. He is on the far west end of the main vendors row. His store is open year round & I do know he does buy guns from individuals although you would do best to sell it yourself to an individual.
    Dealers won't give you top dollar as they have to make money too. There are many other dealers at the Grand now. Good luck & enjoy the sights. Colonel

    I would be sure to carry it around with a for sale sign on it. Selling to an individual will yield top dollar. Dealers will typically give you 80% of retail at best.

    have fun, stay hydrated and good luck on your sell!

    Thanks for the replies. Got me re-thinking my bright idea.
