    Good site to buy/sell worn guns?

    I've been considering purchasing a worn (e.g., not pretty but still reliable) .22lr that I ASSume would be low in price, as well as figure out if I wanted to sell my Kimber what it might be worth.

    However, all of the sites I've been through so far seem to only have guns that I would rate as being in very good or better condition (or "collector" value). I don't know if it's just a timing thing and I haven't been on these sites long enough or looked in the right places, but I sort of thought there would be people cleaning out their closets, garages, and storage units and deciding it's finally time to sell some stuff, including that old firearm, and putting it up on teh interwebs some place.

    Anyone know of a good site for this?

    Gunbroker, Auction Arms, Arms List, CDNN, Sarco, local gun shops, and local pawn shops.

    I've searched Gun Broker extensively, and browsing the others I find it's all the same: at those prices, I may as well just get a new one.

    I haven't been to the pawn shops, but the local gun shops always want to pay a gunsmith to make the guns perfect before selling them.

    I also haven't been to any gun shows.
