My brother-in-law passed away about 2yrs. ago and he left to me about 7 guns.And my question is what are the laws (Illinois) in order to sell weapons.I myself am not a hunter and that is why I'm thinking about selling them. Also, could anyone tell me what web site might be helpful to me to see what the value of these guns might be? Your help would be greatly apreciated. Thanks:confused:

I can't help on Illinois law specifically, but you would probably have to be sure that they have their FOID card and all that garbage. Make yourself a two bills of sale that includes the model and S/N and each sign each so that you both have a receipt. Check out
http://www.gunbroker.com
http://www.auctionarms.com
for comparable prices, taken with a grain of salt for some sellers.

If you sell to someone out of state, you'll have to send the gun to a dealer in that person's state to do the transfer. You'll have to get a copy of that dealers FFL before you send. Some dealers will also want you to include a copy of your driver's license even though no law requires that.

When you sell, you could always post them here and probably get good responses. Be sure to include pictures.
