Best place to trade in a firearm?

5 posts in this topic

I was looking to trade in my Browning A-bolt .22 for a Ruger bolt .22.

So where do you guys get the best trade in values?

Reeds, Scheels, Bluewater, Gander?

Trade-ins usually bring less money than if you sold it outright like on this website for example. Guns sell

pretty good this way. You could check with one of the stores to see what the difference would be and go from there. My 2 cents.

In town if your looking to trade with all due respect to the others Mark at Bluewater will be fair and up front with you he is a great guy and very knowledgeable.

I have had some issues with returns and trades at Gander in Bemidji. They try but are corporate ruled.

Another thought is Lakes Sports in Bemidji talk to Neal.

If you want to wait a bit to get a better price check out the online gun sales unsure if I can post them here. But then you have shipping and may not get sale. Or someone test drives it and wants their money back.

Good luck

Mark at Bluewater does awesome on trades... Neal/Roman/Blue take good care of you also at Lakes... Mark has a bigger selection and will give you the best price he can for your trade in...

What I recommend is trying to sell your gun here on FM in the classified section.. You will get more for your gun and then go down and deal with Mark or Lakes on a new or used gun.... Just a thought and good luck...

If you're going to SCSU, try Sheels. That was a huge part of their business locally before they went bigtime. Give Gander an call, too.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
