How Many Guns Do You *Really* Need in your Collection?

How Many Guns Do You *Really* Need in your Collection?

Have you ever watched a hoarders reality TV show?

These shows are usually an odd mix of pure entertainment and cautionary tales. They star ordinary people who have houses, lives, families… and way, way too much stuff. Their homes are completely overstuffed with random items—both things of value and things that are literal garbage. In the average episode, a professional organizer comes in and helps the hoarder get rid of the insane clutter and take back control of their life and space.

Now, while you likely don’t have a hoarding problem when it comes to firearms, there are collectors out there who have built massive collections that have exceeded the space they have to store them. They may literally have hundreds of firearms in excellent condition, some of them even super valuable! Even if they want to cut down on their collection, it can be a huge hassle—the #1 reason being that they don’t know how to do it.

Most professional collectors know that selling their firearms at a gun store is basically asking to be ripped off on the sale price. While selling their firearms privately might bring in more money, putting hundreds of items up on gun forums can be very overwhelming (not to mention potentially dangerous). That being said, both of these options would be preferable to amnesty gun programs where the collector would get nothing for their valuable collection. On top of that, the guns they hand over would likely be destroyed soon after. That’s just unthinkable.

So, how can these collectors (you?) downsize their collection in a way that’s easy, stress-free, and will bring in a ton of money? Have you ever considered making money by auctioning your guns?

What Are the Advantages of GTA Guns Auctions?

Auctioning your unused guns for cold, hard cash is, by far, the best way to handle downsizing your firearm collection.

Ever since we moved our auctions exclusively online, we’ve seen a massive increase in the number of people who attend them. Today, we get hundreds upon hundreds of people all over North America who log in regularly to take a look at what’s available at auction each month. And believe us, their eyes will bug out when they get a look at your extensive collection!

Do you want to know how easy it is to list a firearm with GTA Guns? First, you safely transport it to our physical location to be put through our GUNCHECK™ or CYCLECHECK™ services and, well… that’s it. We take it from there!

We will securely store your firearms until the auction, create a page for each item, and put up the photos that were taken during the GUNCHECK™ process. All you have to do is sit back and check the auction site to see the sale price on your guns going higher and higher.

And that’s not all—once your guns are sold, you don’t have to worry about paperwork or transportation. We sign everything and safely get the purchased firearms to their buyers. The only thing on your to-do list is to relax and wait for the money to come into your bank account. That’s the beauty of making money by auctioning your guns!
