Selling and buying a firearm from a pawn shop

The world of firearms is a vast one, and with so many options out there it can seem like a chor to figure out what your next move should be. Whether you own a gun or are planning to sell or buy a firearm, consider going to a pawn shop. A pawn shop is the best place to sell, buy or pawn items without so much hassle.

Here at Oaks Pawn, we offer a wide range of guns at the best price possible, and while we do enjoy a good haggle, even without a back and forth we will make sure you leave knowing you got the best deal possible.

Why A Pawn Store

For people who don’t have enough money, buying from a pawn shop allows them to get their much-needed items without spending much. On the other hand, those who want to have instant cash for emergency purposes can sell their valuable items like firearms. A pawn shop gives you instant access to cash on the basis of your firearm value. Your firearm can become your collateral item – the pawn shop will keep it in case you cannot pay back the money in a certain period of time.

Selling A Firearm

Keep in mind that when you decide to sell your firearm into a pawn shop, do not expect to get the exact amount you paid when you first purchase it. You may be able to sell it for a higher price if you put it up for sale in the market, however going that route does not guarantee the firearm will sell and often times sellers can see their item on the market for months or in some cases, years. On the other hand, pawn shops are the go-to for quick cash for your valuable items. 

If you are on the lookout for instant cash, or not willing to deal with meeting people, market fees, or waiting then a pawn shop is your best option. When selling a firearm, you are also required to bring your state ID. Also, make sure the gun has it’s safety on and is not loaded.

Buying A Firearm

Buying a firearm from a pawn shop can give you a discounted price while shopping from a reputable source. While following state laws and requirements, buying a firearm from a pawn shop like Oaks Pawn is a fairly easy process.  Some rules are: you must have your state issued ID. If you do not hold a concealed weapons permit, there is a mandatory 5 day wait before you can pick up your gun. If you have your concealed weapons permit, no wait is required. You must be over 21 years of age as well.
