In a parking lot in Fayetteville, Georgia, John Pander is about to head into a competitive shooting match. And he’s brought along a pistol he doesn’t shoot anymore. It’s a SIG SAUER P229.
Pander usually buys his guns new, from federally licensed dealers. He keeps them locked up in a safe at home, but sometimes the safe fills up.
“So it all comes down to space,” said Pander. “And yeah, sometimes you want to fund the next purchase.”
So when he’s got his eye on a new gun, he puts an old one up for sale.
