Don't worry though, I still have more than I sold...
Alsoplustoo - the average of a 125% profit didn't bother me much.
Been there. Done that.
Sold two 12 gauge riot guns and bought three pre-64 Model 70's
Felt much thinner
For example: The safari I planned to take in Africa is not going to happen, barring a lottery win, so the Weatherby .378 and .300 Magnums are of no use for where I’ll be hunting.
The Winchester Model 97 for cowboy action shooting has yet to fire it’s first shot at Black Bart or Rattlesnake Smith.
I can sing the same tune for about twenty other guns, so with many guns bringing premium prices it just might be a good time to thin the herd.
Sell guns? Yer bordering on blasphemy there, buddy.....
But I do periodically try to consolidate by caliber and action type.
Rather than selling guns, I should really focus on not buying guns that don't 'fit' with what I have or what I need.
now i usually stick to .32acp, 9mm, .45acp, 10mm, .22lr, .38spl, .357mag, .44spl.
There are still many things I want to buy but I can't see myself ever selling anything to buy something else.
I would hate to be those people who sold guns only to regret it later on.
I'm sure that there are a few former Colt Python owners out there that wish they hadn't sold theirs.
NOPE.......... And I have some that I have not shot in years.
I've gotten rid of my revolvers that didn't meet my high standards, i.e., those that didn't have great lock-up, good timing or weren't really accurate.
I've gotten rid of my autoloaders that I didn't find particularly ergonomic, weren't particularly accurate or reliable or just plain didn't interest me.
I've gotten rid of those guns that I never found the urge to admire because they didn't have those classic looks; I've sold off or traded those guns that never seemed to need to go to the range ...
I've kept a couple because of sentimental attachment (i.e., first gun I ever shot with my wife or kids, etc.) but ...
I've decided to stick with only .38/.357/9mm/.45ACP in handguns (screw the .380, don't see the need for .22, .25, .32 or even 10mm or .44) and in long guns, I'm down to .30-06, .223/5.56mm and 12-gauge. Oh, yeah, there's always the .30-30 lever gun!
Don't do .22 and life is too short to own or carry ugly guns.
