    Hi guys,


    As many of you know, I've been buying estates and collections of firearms for a while now. Even single guns if folks are somewhat local. We've traveled to several states doing this and of course throughout North Carolina. With the return to the gun shows still two years or so away and 2 more years of chemo , this is how we have been making a living since I was diagnosed.

    We have bought the inventory from failing gun shops that are closing their doors, the inventory of gunsmiths that are retiring, the collections of the deceased, and so on. As long as it is firearm related, I would be interested.

    Those that know me, know that I will be as fair as I possibly can be to folks. I've been in this business for a while and plan on being in it for a long while. So I try to make friends and earn repeat customers. I'm in this to make a living, not a killing. This is how I ran the business at the gun shows and it's proven to be successful on this side of the business as well.

    So if you know of anyone that has any firearms, bulk magazines, gun parts, scopes, etc.. that they wish to part with, feel free to shoot me a pm. If you provide us with a good lead that pans out, we will be happy to pay you a finders fee. We do not mind traveling if the collection is worth it. We do have two small children and I do still receive chemo and lumbar punctures, so there are some days that I simply can't make a trip. However, most days I'm willing and ready.

    If you have any questions or know of something along these lines, please shoot me a pm.

    Thanks!

    @knifeman32, once you buy these collections, where are you selling them? Do you have a website with inventory?

    Different places. I've been fortunate enough to amass a rolodex or ten with contacts across the country with folks that are looking for specific items. This has all came from selling them guns at shows or word of mouth. I'm thankful to have that. Aside from that, we will sell them on gunbroker if they are odd, different, or somewhat hard to find. And if it's in my steroid window each month, I will sell them locally. But I only have a small window of time when my white cell count is up enough. Caitlin typically goes in houses and evaluates everything while I wait in the truck... just in case anyone in their house is sick.

    For example, I just sold two Winchester model 52's to a gentleman in Illinois that I know collects them. I met him at a show in Jacksonville, NC when he was visiting family. We've been really fortunate to make some really great friends over the years.

    To be honest, it takes me a bit of time to sort through everything and things tend to accumulate at the BBS house. I've got a mess of parts, mags, etc.. that I haven't even remotely started going through. But....we have a huge storage building in the works so I can accumulate more things without Caitlin switching my meds with rat poison.

    I'm trying brother. Sometimes I feel like I may have lost a step but I'm doing all I can. God has really looked out for me. That is for sure.

    If I cloned myself and we went into business together, I would constantly tell him how much he sucks compared to @knifeman32.

    Jerek, I met this guy a few weeks ago and he says he’s retiring and selling out. Dunno what his inventory looks like, but if you guys get together and work anything out, I’m happy to help with pickup and delivery.
