If the threat of AWB disapeared would you sell off your Evil guns?

  1. No, never.

  2. Maybe sell off the extras I stocked up on.

  3. I'd get rid of all of them and buy the non threatening guns I'd rather have.

    Lets assume for a moment that something happens legislatively that pretty much guarantees that there will NEVER be another Assault Weapon Ban ... yes I know that would be a tough thing to guarantee, but just for the sake of argument, lets say that it happens.

    So of all you folk out there with your Monstrously High Powered Evil Black Rifles and Super Capacity Death Machine handguns, how many of you would probably end up divesting yourself of most if not all your evil guns if they were no longer threatened?

    I started out with black guns, my first handgun was a poly framed hi cap death machine and my first rifle was an AR-15, but in recent years I've actually found myself enjoying shooting revolvers and bolt or lever action rifles (just bought my first Winchester 94 the other day). I'd probably keep my AR-15, but I don't know that I'd ever buy another one or buy an AK if I knew they weren't ever going to be banned (of course my tastes seem to change on a weekly basis so who knows).

    I said I'd never sell them. In essence that is true as I bought them because I like them. On the other hand, taste in firearms change and personal situations change so I guess I'd consider selling them if I didn't have the pleasure of their ownership any longer.

    Don't divest yourself of anything. I also go through my little phases of interest. Used to be SA revolvers, then military mausers, then mannlicher schoenauers, then lever guns, blah blah blah...

    I've gone full circle a few times picking up and shooting some of the things I had set down long ago. I was glad that I didn't trade them in or "divest" myself of them.

    I'm much more concerned about regulatory and restriction schemes that would result in at least a de facto, if not a de jure, ban.

    I have worked too hard for what little I have. I might sell one or two that I never shoot to help pay for a Shiloh Sharps but I will never get rid of them all.

    I don't own an "assault weapon". I do have a couple military "look alikes", none more powerful than a common 7.62x51. Joe

    Me too, and I will most likely keep them, regardless of another AWB or not, and get more uppers/accessories.

    I didn't get a AR because of the possibility of a AWB, i got it becasue it is probably the single MOST changable gun ever, if i don't like it how it is now, well, that is just a upper change till i do.

    This is quite possible, but not probable. It would be wonderful.

    How are my guns threatening?

    No offense Zundfolge, but many of your posts and threads strike me as trollishly anti. Again no offense, it's just my humble opinion.

    Anyway, I prefer an AR15 for HD and hi-cap pistols make more sense for self defense than a single stack. Why would anyone sell off something so practical and necessary?

    I purchased my AR-15 because I wanted it... I wanted it long before I got it, but was only able to afford it a couple weeks prior to the election... LUCKY ME... picked mine up for 725... DPMS sporticle.. then put a 4 rail gas block, a 3X12 red and green illuminated reticle scope, and topped it off with a green laser... of course i could sell it for more than I have in it, but that is not something I am interested in or will be in the forseeable future...

    Nope. I bought each of my guns for a reason, and those reasons won't change, ban or no ban.

    Most people buying now are not buying them solely based on the fact of an AWB, they bought because they wanted them anyway and figured if something like AWB happens, they may never have the oppurtunity again to purchase it. So in other words, they wanted it anyway, and were just waiting for the proper kick in the ass.

    I need all the high power death machines I can get. I only have five as it is. I'd maybe sell one to raise some money for a minigun..

    Also what the guy said about the versitality of the AR platform.

    They're not evil, and they are not going.

    I only have one. And I'm not partying with it anytime soon...unless I lose it in a fishing accident of course.

    I dont think any of my guns are evil. Except maybe the SKS, it has to be possessed, it jams every other round only when I shoot it....

    I'm at the point where I have regretted letting go of some guns and have vowed to never do it again.
