I'm losing my enthusiasm for guns. I don't shoot as much and am not turned on by many guns any more. I have decided to sell a corner-full of mostly shotguns, doubles, to clean out my house and I fully realize I'll lose a lot of money. If I was younger, I could sell them on Gunbroker, but I don't have the means or desire to do that. They don't eat anything, and I've been putting off selling them for a couple of years. Any suggestions?
Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

I'd rather have my sister work in a whorehouse than own another Taurus!
Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.
Sorry to hear this.
But i understand completely. Since ive been traveling, thats what my passion and focus is now. I didnt even shoot this year.
Ive been selling off my collection a few pieces at a time. No rush. Right now i stopped due to the holidays but will start up after the new year.
consider you may not want to sell your guns on GB, but why not? Its not like you MUST sell everything at one time. Sell off 1 or 2 at a time and use the KISS principal. Thats what i do. but i will sell something different from the other im selling. So if i sell a Colt NF in 22, i may sell something else like a RUger or S&W or a rifle.
If you dont have the www connection i can see that being an issue. Can any friends do it ?
Yes you will get some noobs that wont know what you are selling, but there are many others that will. The way i see it is that you have to put up with the ~1% that dont know anything to sell to the 99% that do.
If you have any favorite gun shops in your area you may want to see what they will charge for consignment. Or if you have any gun shows, look at the cost of getting a table. I find putting it on the www give you way more exposure and the chances of getting (more $$$) is a better bet.
again, its not like you must sell them in 1 shot unless you want to.
