Best place to trade in a firearm?

Recommended Posts

MWellner

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.

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
