  • Starter Pistol(s)

    Does anyone know anything about starter pistols? I've been given two that I don't need or have a use for.

    Where is a good place to see what they are even worth? Or where could I even sell them? Ebay is out from what I can tell.

    From quickly looking on Google the immediate searches didn't return much value at all. One was maybe $100 tops and the other $20.

    Let me know if you have any ideas or want model #'s.

    Thanks!
    I am officially upgrading Gatorbyte from "fly in my ointment" to "thorn in my side". If he happens to elevate himself to "pain in my a$$" I'm gonna blame it on RScott.

    Talk to a HS coach and see if they want and then donate them. Maybe a dog trainer too.

      HS or youth track and field team.
      Here's a list of USATF affiliated clubs in Georgia
      http://georgia.usatf.org/Committees/...Directory.aspx

      Almost everything is electronically timed now even at the youngest levels. I'm not sure of the gun requirements for those systems.

      Along with dog training some horse trainers use them as well.

      To see what new ones are worth check out

          Use Gunbroker.

          http://www.gunbroker.com/

          I haven't sold there but have purchased there. Very similar to eBay in a lot of ways.

          Even if you don't buy/sell via Gunbroker, you can still use it to establish current market value. Check the "completed listings", just like eBay.

            Might be good for enforcing stream etiquette.

              Maybe we add a three legged race or potato sack race at the next Fall Fling and uses it to start the race. I would pay good money to watch Gatorbyte and Swamp Angel paired up on a three legged race.

                As said above, gunbroker (those values can be a tad inflated) for value and outdoorstrader.com to try and sell but probably only talking a little unless something is a particular novelty.

                  Starter pistols

                  Please text me a photo. May take both. We use them training dogs and gift them to newbies.

                    I've used armslist before...haven't had any issues just meet at a public place and take the bullets out...but keep an ankle strap in case.
                    We are the music-makers,
                    And we are the dreamers of dreams,
                    Wandering by lone sea-breakers
                    And sitting by desolate streams;
                    World losers and world forsakers,
                    On whom the pale moon gleams.

                        You're a meany. We'd be runnin' 'round in circles like a poisoned squirrel with the size diff'rence 'twixt us! (An' I tend to think that the sound of a starter pistol might give GB too much of a start an' cause him to faint.)
                        If you have difficulty understanding the post above, read it out loud and it should make sense. This NGTO member is known for his poor hill-billy upbringing and his affinity for all things from Louisiana (particularly if it relates to LSU). It makes for a poor mix of accents and much difficulty in translation. He was doing well for so long, but now seems to have regressed.
