    Where to sell a gun in Florida ?

    Where would you advertise a handgun for sale in Florida? (Aside from this site)

    Do you see any problem with Craigs List?
    Would you sell only to someone who has a CWL?

    I would feel uncomfortable selling to someone with whom I had no history or acquaintance. Not to mention a stranger coming to my home. And gun dealers will usually lowball you. I would recommend selling to someone at a gunshow. What I did was print out a picture of the two guns I had for sale and taped them on the side of a bag which held the guns. I had interest before I even stepped into the venue and sold everything before I had gone through the first aisle.

    I just sold a gun this week from a post I placed on this forum. We met at a Walmart about half way from where we each live. The transaction was complete in less than 24 hours from my post...and I posted at around 9:45 PM.

    The gentleman I sold to was a real nice guy and I never felt uncomfortable. What are you selling? He said he's interested in a semi-auto handgun in 9 or 45.

    I haven't decided for sure yet but I think I want to sell my S&W M&P 40 compact which I just got 3 weeks or a month ago. I think I want to buy the same thing but with the thumb safety. I was going to ask $475. I don't know if that is reasonable for a month old gun with about 300 or 400 rounds through it.

    I think I would just feel a whole lot better knowing there is a safety.

    Gun shows are the easiest way. I always go in there with a good price on it and I have never went more than 30 minutes before selling it. If you want too much, then you'll be carrying it all day.

    "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.
