Hi Guys and Gals,

Any news from the last Tulsa show? I have been thinking about selling my Winchester collection at that show next year, instead of an auction. My wife says two years. The economy sucks, but looking for advice. I really do not want to sell but…

Walter,

Tulsa is such a big show that there is so many guns to choose from so you have to be selling the best gun there or have the cheapest gun. The gun has to stand out to sell there.

Bob,

Did you go to the last Tulsa show?  Would you consider the Tulsa show to sell your Winchesters or an Auction?  How do rare Winchesters fair there?

Walter,

I was at Tulsa. If its between a auction and a gun show I would go with a show for tax reasons. Nice guns sell at a show if priced reasonably. What I see now are nice guns priced like they at a auction and they don’t sell. Average guns are hard sells at the show because there are too many of them.

Bob,

 

Who knows what the market has to offer.  James Julia does not send a 1099 to the seller or buyer. I asked.

Walter,

The big reason, I just don’t trust auction houses to deal with a small seller fairly.

Bob,

I meant to ask if you bought or sold any at the Tulsa show. Thanks for your insight.

Walter
