I use a light blue or pink towel, and take pictures in the bathroom.
Why? The towel breaks up hot-spots
The bathroom is the best lit room in a normal house.

Use a tripod it you need.

Feathers, ammo, etc are nice touches around the picture
if they do not take away from the gun.

Some close-ups are good

If you use a tripod and or the 2 second shutter delay, you will find your pictures much improved over hand held camera ones.

Does a flash create distracting glare and shadows?

Do not use a white background. It will confuse the automatic metering of the camera.

Something I have noticed, and do not care for, is the use of blue lighting when photographing guns. Evidently it enhances something (or hides something), or it wouldn't have become so prevalent lately. I automatically distrust a listing that I see photographed that way. I may be off base with this, but that's just my take on it.

Is natural indirect sunlight preferable to incandescent or LED overhead lights?

Hal, I'm about as far from a photographer as a man could be, but I once read here that in lieu of a professional backdrop and lighting the best bet was photographing guns outside on a cloudy day. I've done that for years and it has always worked well for me.
