    What are some of the gun stores that carry large volumes of police trade-ins? I remember purchasing a nice Beretta 92FS several years ago from some place that I believe was in Arizona, but I can't remember where it was.

    Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore often has LE trade-ins. I bought a S&W Model 64 and a 4043 from them. I wonder if you are thinking about J&G Sales in Phoenix?

    J&G Sales in Prescott is a great place to do business; in person or on line. I’ve had good luck with GT Distributers in Georgia. I hear Bud’s is good but have never dealt with them.

    Yes, I did business with J&G when they were on the ranch in Malta, Montana. That was a long time ago.:eek:

    Some options include:

    Classic firearms
    Southern Ohio gun
    Summit gun broker
    Recoil gun works
    Sportsmans outdoor superstore
    Aim surplus
    Buds
    Sportsmansguide
    J&G sales
    Cheaper than dirt
    Cdnn

    Slickguns.com will often list the new kids on the block, and smaller players. It's good to checkout the used gun selection of anyone on slickguns, as they often have some unusual stuff.

    .40 cal trade in guns are everywhere now. 9mm not so much.

    This was $299 from Buds last year. It looked unfired.

    I love the little bear.

    If you keep an eye on slickguns.com deals on LEO trade ins come up pretty regularly. There is a Glock LEO dealer in the next town up from here. I haven't been by there in a while but I like to stop in there because there is never any telling what they will have in stock.

    I've bought from CDNN and Bud's. Good experiences both times.

    I have bought a number of handguns from J&G -- Eastern Bloc milsurps and S&W security guard turn-ins. I have been very satisfied with the transactions and the quality of the merchandise.

    This is incorrect about GT Distributors selling only to those with a FFL. I don't have an FFL, and have purchased maybe a dozen firearms from them. Several were police trades.

    Nice. The one I bought was very rusted. I returned it.

    I can vouch for both JG Sales and CDNN as I have been pleased with my dealings with them both. I did feel badly when Steve at CDNN told me that he could let me have a semi auto Barrett 50 cal with the Leuopould package for 8750. I was foaming at the mouth ,drooling man that could have been a good lick at my bucket list.
