ABOUT GUNS ON 41 & FirearmsAdvisor.com

 

We have been in the firearms business since 2007. First as Chiquita Guns in Cape Coral, FL; then as GUNS on 41 in Fort Myers, FL. During that time, we have seen constant and rapid change in the nature of the firearms industry. We have bought, sold, transferred, appraised, shipped & consigned over 18,000 firearms. We have witnessed the market swings, panics and gluts in the firearms industry that have occurred since that time; from the handgun and “assault weapons” panic of 2012-13, the ammunition shortages of 2013-15, and the current industry downturn of 2016-present.

 

 We also have current knowledge of the ever-changing landscape of firearms laws, both on a national level and state-by-state. While Florida has undergone some recent moderate changes, other states across the country (where a lot of our clients move from or snowbird from) have seen more drastic changes. From concealed carry reciprocity, to the recent passage of “Red-Flag Laws” to the rules on travel, shipping and transfers, we have advised thousands of clients on these issues. We have 13 years of experience and knowledge of federal and state firearms laws re: possession, transfers, shipping, carrying, buying, selling, etc.

 

 Perhaps no areas of the firearms market have undergone more change than the following two: 1) the nature of buying, valuing and transferring new and recently acquired firearms still in production, and 2) the value and nature of buying and selling classic firearms, antiques, curios & relics, out-of-production firearms and the like.

 

 The markets for modern firearms, ammunition and accessories have gone the way of so much of modern retail. Today there is nearly unlimited access to information on prices and availability that are only seconds to minutes away with the “Amazon-effect” of modern technology, the Internet and Smart-phones. This has led to the commoditization and far lower prices for modern firearms, ammunition and accessories. Any savvy buyer can find a great deal of pricing and availability information with a minor to moderate amount of research. In fact, we recommend that clients avail themselves of these options when it comes to new firearms, ammunition and accessories.

 

 But it is in this second area, the value and nature of buying and selling classic firearms, is where we have up-to-date knowledge and experience of a changing market. Today, this market is very solid with a lot of activity. With new firearms basically becoming a “tool” that can be obtained anywhere at low price points, the market for classic firearms and collectibles has been lively, interesting and is rapidly shifting to the Online world as well. In the “good, old days” classic and used firearms were the generally the purview only of gun shows and small gun shops; usually accompanied by limited stock and inflated prices. This is no longer the case. We sell dozens of very diverse firearms via Online auctions every month. As such, we get constant and real feedback as the to the current state of the firearms market and the true value of classic and pre-owned items.

 

 If you have the need for information on transfers and shipping, appraisals and valuations, the need to sell your firearms, or want to consign a large collection, we have the experience and current expertise to best advise you on this process. Call us at (239) 939-4867 or e-mail us at tbruson@comcast.net to set up a time for telephone conference or face-to-face meeting to see if we can assist.
