Guns at Estate Sales

How to get great deals on used guns by shopping at estate sales.

Guns At Estate SalesToday we’re talking about how to find great deals on guns at estate sales. This article is NOT about estate auctions. There’s a big difference. At estate auctions, guns can frequently sell for more than they’re worth because there may be several people bidding for the same firearm.

This article is instead talking about estate sales that usually take place inside someone’s private home.

Buying Land for Hunting Hogs

Although rural Florida is almost overrun with wild hogs, it’s still difficult to bag a hog in Florida’s public wildlife management areas. In the WMAs where hogs are common, access to these areas often requires a quota permit which are limited in number and usually drawn by lottery or in the cases where they are first come first serve, they are often sold-out months in advance.

How Much Is Lead a Pound

80 Cents per pound.

Wheel Weight lead scrapAs of February 2015 the current market spot price for pure lead is 80 cents per pound. Today I bought 300 pounds of scrap wheel weights for 27 cents per pound. I bought it from a tire sales store.

I had difficulty finding a tire store that would actually sell me their scrap lead. All the national chain stores told me that their scrap lead is collected by “corporate”. I believe it’s most likely recycled into new wheel weights and sold again. But this particular store had run an ad on Craigslist wanting to sell their scrap lead. I drove down there and bought it.

This means that I now need only… Continue reading
