Gearing up for hunting season or looking to add a new handgun to your collection? Here are three tips you need to know (and do) below before you spend another dime on guns. Disclaimer: Yes, you can use these tips to find brand name items regardless of the time of year!
- Shop online – Whether you’re looking for brand named handguns, shotguns, rifles, crossbows, ammunition, and other accessories, one sure way to find the best deal on guns is to shop online. While you’ll want to take some precaution when shopping through this method, you can look for some of the best deals on firearms on sites like Gunbroker from your trusted and reputable gun dealers near you.
- Buy pre-owned – Stores that sell pre-owned items get new inventory daily and usually sell thousands of brand-named items for a fraction of regular retail prices! One good thing about guns is that they typically have a longer shelf life and you can usually find a wide selection of classic models pre-owned. You will never walk into a Sports Academy or Gander Mountain store for example and find a 1977 Smith and Wesson .38 special on the shelf for sale – but you can at a pawn shop. These stores have everything from AR-15's to sub-compact handguns and everything in between. If you're looking for a gun and it’s not in stock, pawnbrokers can almost certainly get it for you.
- Negotiate at a pawn shop – Not only are items sold for a fraction of the cost because they are usually pre-owned, but people who visit pawn shops also know that most prices are negotiable, so they can usually get a good deal. Why pay $2,500 dollars on a new firearm at a gun store when you could spend less than $1,000 for the same item pre-owned? Instead of turning away on an item because of the price, make an offer to be sure to score the best deals on guns near you.
As you can see, there are several ways to make sure you find the best deals on guns regardless of where you shop.
