    I was at a local gun shop the other day when i spotted a Cobray Mac-11 in .380 for $595. I knew it wasn't worth that much but i have one I've been trying to get rid of in the $400 range.

    They buy used guns so i asked for an Approx price quote. He digs around his computer and then says:

    "$250ish. Maybe a little more depending on the time of year."

    I asked what he meant by that and he explained that guns go for more during the Spring compared to the end of summer.


    How does that work? Maybe sales are higher in the Spring so they're willing to pay more? Anyone else heard of this or have any input?

    Supply and demand, I suspect. Maybe more people think about getting out of the house in the spring and think about shooting as recreation or the need for SD. Demand goes up -- so do prices.
