Considering political atmosphere of our nation today, if you had several firearms to sell, when would you sell. Quality firearms, normally rifles bring the best price around October before deer season. Shotguns in August before dove season. Handguns anytime. But now we have a POTUS who might make an executive order forbidding private sales. Yet waiting till after the elections might bring a premium price as it did in 2007 & 2011.

Think that will only work on certain types of guns. This time they were bought legally and through an outlet type store with background check. System still lets them buy. Of course all criminals follow all laws right? I'd think just because of the hype close to election and Hillary being a possibility they will probably sky rocket.

I think they are going to go after ammo this time.

There is such a huge oversupply with modern sporting rifles/ARs/assault rifles/black guns - whatever name you give them - that prices may go back to right around $700-$800 for a 'decent' 5.56/.223. I've been wrong before, but if you can't feed them - they are nothing more than expensive rocks.

IDK, but I bought a sack of Magpul Magazines to keep in the safe if they ever go up to 75-100$ a piece again. If they don't, I still have quality mags

I'm currently in the process of selling some of my rifles - so that I can buy something different. It is very seldom that I hang onto anything for more than a year or so.

There's a gun show here in about six weeks. They'll probably go then.

Maybe I'll find something while I'm there, that I just can't live without. - You know how it goes.
