Default I need a loan....

I'm reaching out to see if there might be a calgunner out there who can help me... I need 6 to 8 month loan for $3000. I've got solid income and I'm a stable guy. Went through some financial challenges a while back and I'm still repairing my credit. Rather than sign up for a high interest loan from a standard lender, I thought I might see if there was anyone here that might be able to help me out. I've sold some guns and other items, but I'd rather not sell everything if I can avoid it. I just need a hand up..... PM me if you think you might be willing to discuss further.

Not sure how much you are looking for but guns are selling well right now...maybe sell one or two and raise the cash you need?

Ammo is selling well also.

Honestly just to help, you need to change your sales pitch. I mean that in the best of ways, you are not presenting an enticing proposition on a few basic and essential levels.

Saying that, outside of normal institutional channels, there are some places online that house private peer loan arrangements. A google search will reveal a few common sites. However it might not meet your goals, since that is unknown from your post.

Best of luck, money is cheap right now so hopefully you can secure something - but there is a higher watermark for entry.

A few years back I was in a situation where I needed $8000 to consolidate some super high interest rate credit cards (25%apr)

I had less that good credit and found about Lending Club online.

You have to sell yourself and the reason for the loan. Many individuals (investors) fund your loan and they can be really picky.

I luckily got my loan fully funded at almost a 12% interest rate. Less than I was paying and lowered my monthly payment a little too.

Its not for everyone and not everyone who applies gets a loan.

Just a thought.

I'm looking to borrow $3000 for 6 to 8 months. Ridiculous interest is something in the high 20's....

I have let a couple guns go recently and that helped.... I just don't want to sell everything I have if I can avoid it.

Thanks for the input.... You make a lot of sense. I've never looked for financial assistance in this way before. this is the first time I've found myself in this situation. I'm going to amend my original post to be a bit more specific.

A private loan over 10% interest is illegal, btw.
