    Not sure which forum to post this in, hope I chose well.

    I need to pawn my handgun and was wondering if anyone here has had experience in doing this? I am only needing money until my paycheck on Thursday, so I will be getting it out quickly. Is there anything special I need to do besides make sure it is empty when taking it in? I have read a lot of good things about King's Pawn in Del City and will try to use them. I don't know of any others in my area that pawn guns.

    That's pretty much it. King's is a nice shop. Prolly treat you as good as anybody in the Pawn business can.

    Ok, thanks for the information. It is going to feel bad putting it in pawn, but it won't be there for long.

    You do know you'll have to do a 4473 to get it back.....?

    It's a real easy process, just take it in unloaded in a case of some sort. The only thing that sucks is they're only going to loan you about 25% of what the gun is actually worth because they have to be able to make a good profit on it if for some reason you weren't able to pay back the loan.
    Some pawn shops require you to have a gun lock when you come back to fill out the 4473 and pick up the firearm.

    I t has a gun lock already. Is the 4473 the same form you fill out when you buy a gun? Th 25% is a little nerve racking, I was needing around $100. Oh well, I will have to make due.

    Yes, the 4473 is the same form you fill out at the gun shop.
    The 25% thing sucks, but they do it so they can make a profit if they end up getting stuck with it.

    bills in claremore does 50% of a guns value. Some places make you have a gun lock on it. Sadly, most all of my guns are in pawn and its going to cost me alot to get them all out.

    Good. I was going to try to convince you to 'sell' it to a friend or coworker with some sort of understanding about buying it back instead.
