    I sold two of my three Mosin's to fund another gun. So, I am down net 1 but way ahead financially because of it.

    I only have my AR's that are at risk, and I will cling to those until someone comes and gets them and I am fighting the fight every day to make sure that doesnt happen.

    Nice! We need to help out each other more. I've got a scope bracket for an AK that I don't think ill ever use. I should give it away next time I see a guy w an AK at the range.

    I sold a friend some ammo cheap the other day so he'd have ammo to go shooting and go shooting with me!

    No. Not really. Even if I did sell something for an astronomical amount of money I'd just want to turn around and buy another example of what I just sold, and I can't. Prices are too high.

    I bought a bunch of stuff right before the election and so when the media started their demonization of gun owners in early December I was already set. I mean there will always be stuff I want and I can always use more ammo, but for the most part I'm good.

    Why screw with that?

    Only other things I buy recreationally besides guns/ammo are books off of Amazon and the occasional woodworking tool. I have enough money for that.

    If I have something I intend(ed) to sell anyway, this is a good time. I did sell a revolver and a semi-auto pistol in the last month. But neither had anything to do with the current wind drift. They were both gathering dust.

    I agree w Browning. I thought of selling some stuff...but why? I'd like an M1A which have inflated prices as well. So it would only make sense for me if I wanted to make a profit and reinvest that money into noninflated firearms.

    Inflatable firearms. What's next!?

    I sold off my 30 round Pmags in a shameless, naked act of profiteering. It was like taking candy from a baby really.

    I figure if they ban 'em I'm done with it. If they don't, I got enough cash from the sale to buy 3 times as many (sans the stuff I already bought with the proceeds). Kept all my 20s. If they ban those, I'll sell those too even closer under the wire (legally, before the effective date) for an even more shameless price and buy 7's or 10's or whatever.

    Sometimes, I think "we" need to be a little careful with the word "sheep".:rolleyes:

    I've sold some ammo to some people that obviously wanted it a lot more than I did. This is mostly stock that I have been building up for the past several years.

    The ar platform has never really suited me, but over the years have acquired a few. Was thinking about selling before this craze started. Glad I put it off. Sold all the rifles, mags and ammo.
    Paid off my medical bills, bought a ATV, computer and purchased a few other firearms that I wanted.

    Unfortunately, I do not have an extensive enough of a collection to be selling off stuff. I'm kicking myself for not buying certain things when I could have managed it though.

    As far as ammo, I'm not selling any of that either. I was in the man-cave just today making my ammo supply a little larger.

    Standing pat right now.

    No plans to sell anything because it would cost all that much more to replace it somewhere down the road.

    I don't have nothing but my wrist rocket.... economy was so bad, I had to sell it all. Been considering a Red Ryder or the Tactical version ( with Popsicle stick duct taped to the end ), but don't think the finances are gonna permit it.

    Now is as good a time as any to sell off brass and certain ammo like 5.7 so I can buy ammo I use the most of like 12ga, 9mm,.40 and 45.

    Not yet. Thinking about selling my M-44 and ammo to fund a Savage Axis in .30-06, or a Charter Arms Southpaw. Seeing if I can save enough to get one or the other first.

    I haven't sold off much of the stuff I had before this started. Since it all began when I find a good deal I just buy double and then resell half, it has helped me manage all the crap I have been acquiring.

    I bought two cases of Wolf 7.62x39 at the gun show for $250 each. Sold 200 rounds for a $100 to one guy and the other 800 rounds to another guy for $350. They both were happy to have found some, and I was stoked because it basically made my case of 1000 cost $50.

    I bought four stripped polymer lowers for $80 each and sold three of them for about $185 each a couple weeks later, it paid for all the other stuff I bought on that trip to the gun store. I bought two DPMS parts kits, sold one for $150 which made mine free to me.

    A friend of mine lined up a guy who wanted to buy one of my AR15s, an Olympic K3B, my buddy told him it would be $2000. I bought it for $800 in 2008. He was happy to have it and I tossed in some extra magazines and one of my nice cases. Now I am trying to decide if I should use that to buy an M1 Garand and an M1 Carbine or put it towards a full auto M11/9.

    Every sale I have had has had a happy buyer and a happy seller, so who can compain? I am still not willing to part with anymore of my magazines though, unless some backorders come in.

    I am staying put, just a couple of odds and ends, like Night sights and lasers I want, I don't really shoot my AR anyway, as I don't have anyone to go with.

    I have thought of selling a bunch of my stuff due to being unemployed. It has been a rough 2 years for me.

    That's the main reason I'd want to sell some of my stash. :)

    I traded a $600 Century C93 for about 1100 bucks worth of stuff (LNIB Sig P220 with a .22lr conversion kit and a puma 1911-22 which I sold for a quick 200 bucks). The guy seemed quite happy with the deal and in fact what he gave my was his very first offer.

    I know I have some excess AR-15 mags lying around that I'll probably sell while I can too. I remember thinking that I wouldn't get 8 bucks per mag just 6 months ago....

    I have an AK, Golani, Sig 556 and AR-15 that will fetch a king's ransom right now and part of me wants to sell them off along with the 2500 rounds of ammo and just be content not to have those rifles for a while. Then buy them all back later when the market goes back to normal. But even at the current prices my net gain isn't all that much money. Sure I could end up a couple grand ahead but that's really not all that tempting.
