    I don't think I will, but I am very tempted to sell off some of my guns, mags and ammo. I have had several people approach me to see if I would sell them an AR or AK, or mags. For those of you who have several of any type rifle or who are setting on large supplies of mags, like 10 or more per rifle with multiple rifles.

    Are any of you considering selling anything?

    No way. I do not have that much "extra" stuff after the boating accident.

    im not really the type of person who buys and sells guns constantly....i almost view my guns like my children, so it not the easiest thing for me to sell them....

    nor am i actively out seeking to make a profit from the current state of firearms economics......

    that being said, if someone approaches me and offers me $500 for my old mossberg.......yeah, its safe to say ide take the money.

    Not selling but converting a bit. Traded 200 9mm fmj for 1k .223 brass. Want to start reloading it, if i can ever find appropriate powder, but don't want to burn too much stock for brass.

    I had a crazy idea to sell my only ar and 13 ar mags and buy a bunch of pistols and semi auto shotgun....then I snapped back to reality.

    I'd like to have it in the future.

    I have sold three Chinese SKS rifles at absolute stupid prices. If people keep offering to pay what last three did will sell more. Allowed me to buy that last FN to round out that collection. Working on a trade of quite a few new in cosmoline AK mags with a dealer for a new scope. Keeping reloading components. Only selling 7.62x39 ammo when someone buys a rifle. Turning Combloc rifles into American, Belgian and German battle rifles just.makes sense as the high dollar rifles are still same price.

    I have no plans to sell off any of my guns that may or may not face government legislation. Nor am I selling off any of my ammunition. Never bothered me in '94 and not going to bother me now.

    I actually let go of one of my AR's. I was offered almost 3x what I paid 2.5 years ago, and had to let it go. I would not have even considered it, but it was a back-up to my back-up AR.

    I sold 200 rounds of .223 to fund some reloading components for a newly-acquired Star .45 ACP. That's about it. I mainly did it because I have about 600 rounds (post-sale) of PMC .223 that I probably won't shoot after I sight my new rifle in since I reload .223.

    Yep!

    Sold just over half my AR mags, now I'm down to a dozen.

    Sold most of my factory .223 & 5.56; I have about 500 rounds left. I sold 1840 rounds. I also reload and have enough components to last a while.

    The profit alone was enough to buy a 50's production S&W .357 I wanted. :cool:

    I also helped people get what they want, so it was a win/win in my book.

    I have sold a few, mainly to buy some really nice optics I have been wanting. Right now I have what I want so I guess I'm pretty much done selling.

    After seeing SKSs run as much as $800, I've considered it.

    Nup. But I sure wish I'd bought a couple of cases of SKSs when they were $89...

    I always buy when I see good deals. Like in early Dec when Brownells was selling Pmags $100 for 10. I loaded up with resale in mind. Then comes the mess. Pmags selling for $50-$70. Yes I made a killing.

    My guy sold off a few of his extras and did a few custom builds before the the real panic buying started.

    I think it'd be a tough call for him to sell more because a lot of his guns have been bequeathed to him by friends who have died during their military service.

    Somethings are worth more than their monetary value.

    I did trade a couple of high capacity military style rifles, but I still have plenty. I didn't trade any mags or ammo though, and can't see why I ever would.

    Sold 3 boxes of .308 for $15 each at the range last Sunday.
    Made sense as I sold my .308 four years ago and did not plan on getting another.
