Friend of mine sold an estate worth of guns to Wiley Brothers. They were straight up and honest with him about what they estimated the value of each firearm was and their wholesale bids on each firearm were approximately 75% of what they thought they could sell it for. Worked out nice for me, because the friend let me cherry pick through the stash and let me buy at the wholesale price he was going to get from them to begin with lol.

Juggernaut Arms in Sparks does consignments. Their whole premise is 5% margin on all the firearms they sell, so that's what they take from your consignments too. Going through them I ended up getting over $700 for an AR pistol built from mutt parts a couple years back.

Carson Armory in Mound House is a good shop to deal with also.
I've done a fair bit of business with them over the years.

The Big Reno Gun Show that was just cancelled for no good reason.

It wasn't the Big Reno show, a smaller one, Rocky Mountain Gun Show. BIg Reno show is next month. It'll be interesting to see what the Grand Sierra does there.

Also interesting the Reno Convention Center didn't have any problem hosting Crossroads last weekend.

Oh, that is great to hear. I was really confused. I thought the Rocky Mountain Show was maybe another name for the Big Reno Show since they were both at the GSR.

If the GSR cancelled the Rocky Mountain Show, I don't know why they would let the Big Reno Show continue. But none of what they do makes any sense anyway.

Meanwhile, I'd like to unload a part of my collection and I was hoping maybe to do it at the Big Reno Show . . .

I've sold to Cabelas and was pleasantly surprised with what they offered.
