S&W Handguns

Ok guys, I need a little info here. Follow me on this if you can...might be a little bumpy. My mothers co-workers wife's co-worker () had his father pass away recently. The guy was a major gun addict, and passed away with his house literally filled with boxes of mostly never opened guns. Some of them were used slightly, but most have only ever come out of their original boxes once.

Now, me and my dad are buying these things up. Basically all of them are S&W handguns, some rifles, but he doesnt want to get rid of them. We have boughten 4 so far, and we are looking to buy another 4 or so, and we are letting our friends buy them through us (they give us the money, and we get them what they want). Anyways, would you mind telling me if we are actually doing the smart thing here in buying them. They seem awfully cheap, thats why we are buying them up.

So anyways, the guns we have bought are all S&W Model 686 6 shot 2.5" barrel .357 magnums. We have been getting them for around $350 a piece. We have one S&W Model 66 .357 magnum. The price seems right to us, but is it?

The guy literally has 100's that his father left him. He is building a house and is funding it along the way by selling these. But, he is only selling them to my moms co-worker, who we get them through.

From what I've heard, no, the guns are perfectly fine and clean. The old man figured they would be outlawed eventually so he stocked up.

As far as selling them to you guys, maybe, but what all does that entail? Can you sell them across state lines? I would think so.

He has some .38 specials and .40 S&W's as well. If there is enough interest, I wouldnt mind passing them along.

well, scratch that idea!! heres the law!

Once a person has made the decision to purchase a gun, a federally licensed dealer will fill out a federal form 4473, which requires identifying and other information about the buyer, and record the make, model, and serial number of the firearm. There is a five-day waiting period during which a background check is run for any information that may disqualify the buyer from owning a firearm. The buyer may purchase the firearm only after the application is approved.

It is unlawful for an individual to purchase a firearm through mail-order from another state. Only licensed dealers are allowed to purchase firearms across state lines from other licensed dealers.

Provided that all other laws are complied with, a person may temporarily borrow or rent a firearm for lawful sporting purposes throughout the United States.

Interesting....... How does a place like gunbroker.com work then??? Do you have to be a dealer to sell on ther? I'm not arguing, just curious.

FFL - Federal Firearms License


I thought private sales were OK, maybe not over stae lines though. Obama hasn't F'd this up already has he?
