I never sell my firearms. It would be like parting with a part of myself. I sold a twenty-two once and it damn near broke my heart. I will never do it again!

I will never sell!!

Shoot! I forgot to put an "I never sell" option down. I can't seem to edit it now.

Sell? Why would I want to do that? :confused:

Sell? Hurts to even think of it!

best to find a friend looking for a firearm,the gun shows and shops are about as good as pawn shops.give you about 10% of the real value,I'd rather just keep the firearm.
I just make sure I'm buying a quality gun which will last.

Some prebans went on consignment awhile back, because the locals pay out the nose for them. I sold a few of them out of state as well. To this day I regret selling 2 guns (a NIB blue label Gov't carbine and a NIB 16' FNC Para).

Other than that, I have bought and sold countless postban rifles/pistols via the internet.

I generally sell them over the net if I can.
Since I only sell one when I want another one more, I do occassionally trade one toward another.
I have also done private sale before, but I no longer do because according to my big book of gun laws that came with my C&R, it is no longer legal.
I wish I could get a concrete answer on that one. The PSP website says it is legal, but every cop I ask says it isn't.
The dealers say it is legal, but the book says no.
I just wish they would make their minds up.

Hmm.. sold a Century Arms International M1 and a handgun on Gun Broker (http://www.gunbroker.com) , an M1A on TFL... The M1 was a travesty masquerading as a vintage rifle, the M1A was an expensive lie: it would have cost 10 times the amount I paid for a 12 year old hunting rifle to equal said hunting rifle's accuracy.

I kinda regret selling the handgun, a Sig P228. Great little shooter, and accurate as all get-out. But I already have an accurate HG (an H&K USP9) that I never use... didn't feel the need for more at the time. Mild regret.

Local gun shops.

But, I make it a policy to buy something to replace what I just sold. :D

only had to sell one gun and that was to help pay bills when I was unemployed and the dealer would have rather loan me the money ( hes a good friend ) than rather to sell it , but it was only a gp161 ( blued gp-100 6" ) so I could always get another one , it was sold later in the same day to someone looking for there first pistol , the guy got a good deal since it was already broken in right . :)

I voted for in the trunk in the 'hood.

I have only sold two because I couldn't get used to that dang mosseberg safety and a lever gun that I only bought to get a better deal on my officers model.

Both guns I just put the word out to freinds and such. Both were gone in a week.

In general I don't sell them. I would never sell a gun I really wanted. I usually research my buys before I make them.

Never sell, rarely trade.

Like Mike or ThreeBadOne, I rarely sell (only sold 1 gun in my life) but I've given away a few.

I am a pack rat. I am going to try my hardest to never get trapped in a corner where I will have to sell a gun. I have tons of other stuff I could sell first anyways, but all of that stuff has been hard to peel away from me too. I bought it to shoot it, clean it, and look at it. Not to sell it. :neener:

Guess I'm the guy selling all the guns on the net then:o

With no ranges or shops that rent near and few friends into firearms "Selling one to buy one" is about the only economically feasable way I've found to try a lot of pistols.

Made a few blunders on guns I wish I would have kept, more often bought WAY too high and sold way too low, but no biggie, just part of the game :)
