    First time that’s ever happened here.
    Is someone selling gun’s by the pound?

    If there is a Python in the pile it by itself would finance a decent Christmas.

    A Valuable Personal Property (VPP) rider to renters or homeowners policy can be purchased for fractions of a penny on the dollar and *most* will cover firearms, be sure to ask about specific exclusions. The total value of the VPP policy may have limits on specific categories ($5k VPP/$2000 for electronics, $2k for firearms, $1k for jewelery for example), so it does pay to ask the questions before purchasing the policy.

    Also, if there are uniquely valuable individual pieces, they can have their own individual replacement policies.

    As you're probably already noticed, your post is like blood in an ocean full of sharks. 85 replies so far, and most chomping at the bit to see what you have!

    If I may add a few more recommendations to the list...

    First, if you do plan to sell on here, please read the following before doing so:

    https://www.texasguntalk.com/threads/classifieds.22305/

    Secondly, if you do get appraisals for the weapons, get more than one or two opinions of what they are worth. You just have to watch a few episodes of Pawn Stars or American Pickers to learn that sometimes even the "experts" are off the mark. If you think a particular firearm is valuable, you may want to consider a professional appraisal of its worth.

    Thirdly, not that anyone on here would purposely steer you wrong; but even potential buyers from this forum (or any other) will want to get the best deals and may not always offer what's best for you. Obviously negotiations will occur, but do your homework beforehand so you know what a reasonable price should be!

    Lastly, as you don't have experience with private sales in Texas, you may want to read some of the articles in the following forum to understand the process.

    https://www.texasguntalk.com/forums/beginner-articles.64/

    Of course, if you have any questions you can ask the collective knowledge of this group!

    Several people have referred to not selling to a gun shop because you will only get wholesale price. Not correct. Most shops will only offer you "used" gun prices.

    If we are getting technical, the gun shops will not offer retail used pricing.

    A distinctive correction to my post but important. I guess we need to come up with a term for what a gun shop realistically offers for a used gun...

    For someone new to selling guns, the prices offered by gun shops seem like a ripoff. A person I know took a very nice Winchester 94 to an Austin gun shop that has been in business awhile and was offered $100 for it. He did not sell because it was just too low a price.
