You might not want to walk into a gun show with multiple guns for sale to private individuals. You could be charged as an unlicensed FFL. Never know what the BATFE will do.

I gave up on the idea of selling anything at a gun show after carrying a heavy rifle at one and finding no one would give me a fair price. This rifle was sold on consignment at a gun shop for more then anyone would give me at the show. Ask the guys behind the tables what they will give you for it and double it to find a fair price for what you want to sell, if you don't believe it sell to them and come back in 15 minutes and look at their asking price. When times were simpler I would trade guns with other gun people and ended up with some sweet deals. Dig into your stash money to keep what you have and buy what you want.

Don't understand this comment. At the gun shows around my area.......there is always at least one, if not more, tables with large home made signs that read..."Private Collection".....or something similar. I have always thought these were individuals selling their own guns that were not dealers (no FFL). How is this different from someone walking around the show with 3 or more guns for sale??

The difference is, with the way the ATF operates (as in a make-up-the-law-as-you-go system) , whether you get charged or not is a matter of how the agent feels that day and if they are an overzealous @-hole. Not all of them are jerks of course, though all it takes is getting that one mean agent. There are about a million ways they can probably prove "intent" for some crime or another, even when the person's intentions are completely innocent. If you've sold more than one gun in a one year span (I'm sure that describes quite a few million gun owners), if they really wanted to they could probably charge you with unlicensed dealing of firearms.

Maybe he could borrow your tin foil hat.
