Buying a Gun at an Auction - Sports Guns Comments


Cardigan, Wales -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/22/2017 -- Shooting UK, an online shooting website released an article which gives people tips on how to buy a gun at an auction. Many shooting enthusiasts are now going to auctions in hope of buying a gun at a cheap price. This is because many gun dealers go to auctions and all they're looking for is the cheapest deal possible which then they can re-sell on to someone else – therefore prices normally tend to stay low.

When bidding it is important that people register themselves at the auction house, for this they will need a proof of identity, and also will need either the shotgun or firearms certificate with them. Without the certificate no gun will be able to be taken home.

When buying a gun at an auction there are a few things which need to be followed, these are some of the things mentioned in the article:

The Do's

Always attend the viewing. The viewing is often held either the day before or the morning of the auction.

If new to shooting, then it can be helpful on taking an experienced friend with them.
Set a budget and stick to it.

The Don'ts

Shooters shouldn't buy a gun at an auction if this is the first one they have bought.
Gun's which haven't been carefully examined shouldn't be bid on.
Spend more than planned, or get into a bidding competition.

A spokesperson from Sport Guns was incredibly keen to comment saying, "Shooting UK always post valuable articles which are suited for all kinds of shooters, and this article is no exception. Many people don't know what to do when it comes to bidding at an auction, especially if it involves guns, so this article will be a great help for many. However, if you aren't one for an auction, or your buying your first gun then we can provide you with a wide variety of guns and accessories – for further information please get in touch."
