My wife does not like her SW 38 Special, six shot, two inch barrel. It is more gun then she wants and is comfortable with. The 38 is the first gun I ever bought. It cost me 375$.
I agreed to get her a .22 so she would be more comfortable. I don't need three guns......I carry a 9mm. So I was going to trade the 38 for a new Walther .22 Auto. Really nice gun retails for 319$. The problem is that the two gun shops I went to both would take my trade but they would only give me 125$ and 150$.
I did not like the thought of being out so much for the trade.
My question is, is it legal for me to trade my gun or sell it through the local paper? What are the rules and regulations about selling a gun in NM? I've noticed other people selling theirs in the paper.
I just don't like the thought of selling my gun to just anyone or buying a gun from just anyone.
Any thoughs or advice to my inexperience would greatly be appreciated.
