or else giv it to my kid(60 yrs old)

Well, you can't beat handing down a family heirloom, but I can certainly give you some advice on selling it. The best way to sell a gun these days is a gun selling website called www.gunbroker.com. Its an online auction site where you can have people bidding all around the country for your firearm.

Ask Your Own Firearms Question

Its the easiest way to reach a wide audience and get the highest dollar value.

Ask Your Own Firearms Question

Sometimes people even get into bidding wars for guns. Its a great website.
