How have you or would you handle a gun for gun trade on opposite sides of the state?

Someone has to ship first.

Inbound first would be the only way I would do it. I am honest as the day is long, the other person, who knows.

I would find a gun shop by him and set it up so when his gets to your gun shop and yours gets to his the gun shops release the guns.

FTF in the middle of the state.I would need to see the gun prior to a deal of any kind.Internet pictures are okay if they are real.I got burned on a FTF from a member on here.Gun looked fine but wouldn't eject shells.I bought the part and fixed it but it wasn't as described in the ad.Oh he is still on here selling guns.

I was thinking ffl to ffl. Neither gun is an expensive gun. I don't want to spend have the value of the gun in gas. I wonder how much it is to ship from one side to another. Both are shot guns.

With the price of gas, time, etc., long drives are not always practical, but its up to the people involved...For me to drive farther than 50 miles I would have to either be making a huge profit, or getting a real good deal...Facebook has many gun selling sites and it seems like all of the good deals are always 200 miles away...Too far for me!....Usually when I sell a gun , it is at a realistic price, and I'm gonna meet the buyer on the interstate only 20 miles away, but that's all the farther I'm going to drive!
