You sieze the moment.

i gun whored for the past 2 years. i went thru 17 different markers, and made cash with nearly every deal.

at the end of my gun whoring, i checked my account. (didnt work at all!)

i had over 1400 in surplus cash (plus selling my last 2 markers)

i invested 400 originally in 1 marker, then traded enought times to get 1000 on-top of that back!

This is not a thread to list your recent deals, please leave it for advice, which is what he asked for.

I originally whored out guns because I wanted to try everything. Now that I have tried about everything I try to find broken guns because I enjoy tinkering and fixing things and I am able to make a better profit.

I did this for a summer when i used to pball and made about 1.5K, you just have to know what your buying and tell when your getting scammed. You also have to know what everything is worth.

And if a deal seems to good to be true it probably is. Make sure the guy has a good amount of feedback ecspecially gun deals.

I also find that people at local fields are typically willing to pay close to retail for a gun that is used. I can pick up a gun here for $500 that retails for $1000 and then turn around and sell it to someone at a local field thats looking for a gun for like $900. Its called taking advantage of people that dont know about the internet. But I dont feel bad becuase its not like I am totally ripping them off.

forsure.. i think gun whoring is something that is best accomplished if you are doin it for the fun of experiencing everything possible.. I did this for several years, owned well over 30 guns, and traded up on almost every one of them. You just have to know the value of everything. Once you are able to pop into an interesting thread, see the specs, and determine its value (despite asking price) you will be efficient at this whole "gun whoring" thing..

I don't really do it very often, but I buy broken guns for cheap, sell em for higher or trade.
I got a Dye UL cocker for 150, fixed it and traded it for an 06 Alien interceptor.
Got a 200$ DM4, put new eyes in it and sold it for 300
Just got another DM4 for my Alien + cash and gear, probably gonna sell that for around 320, maybe trade it for a rail.

Its all about patience, and not getting attached to the guns you need to sell. I will sometimes have a thread up for a few months to find good deals, and when you get a good deal, don't hesitate, take it right away. The more you delay, the more time they have to think, and the more time other people have to take your deal. You wanna sell the markers as soon as you can, because as we all know, newer guns come out, which makes older guns prices drop quickly. I try and stick to guns that don't have a rapidly decreasing resale, so I have more time to sell them. Heres a list of guns with ****ty resale:
All PM's
95% of ions
Timmys (doesn't decrease so much anymore, but it will once the new generation of them comes out)


I try and stick to these:
shockers
DM's
some egos
Legends
Quests (not so much though)

Very true. You are gonna wanna know what the prices for everything is, and what the trade value is. When I look at a marker on the field, the first thing I do is analyze the parts on it. I can name almost every aftermarker part there is, and its aproximate value. Know your ****, and you'll only get good deals.

QFT. A week ago I was going to buy a dm6 for $400, he had one feedback and wouldnt ship first. He kept pressing me to pay quick. Too shady, would never ship first to someone with one feedback. Was also going to buy a PSP for cheap. Again, not very much feedback, acted shady. Diddnt deal with.

Browsed the theft report last night, found bouth of those people on it because they scammed someone. You just have to know what your doing.

Yeah, it helps to know what your doing when whoring guns & parts. Last thing you want is to get **** and not know how to fix it properly ......then resell it & have someone else have problems.

gunwhores usually have three to four guns. they tend to not have them for very long and sell or trade them three to four weeks after getting them because they are "tired of them" or are "looking for something different/newer"

some people who are considered gun whores have an assload of guns, are always buying more guns, and sometimes sell one or two, but may keep buying and never sell any.

gunwhorings hard though, because getting cash out of deals on the nation is impossible. you end up just trading for more and more smaller crap then having to ebay it all and hope you break even.
