    Not selling anything. Actually buying some things. Things that aren't usually for self defense are still available. Not commuting to work puts more money in my pocket for things.

    I’m beginning to consider selling. I only have a few that I don’t enjoy to some extent, so those would be the first to go. I have thought about selling some of my more high dollar items that I don’t use a whole lot, but then I wouldn’t have them anymore. The rationale for selling does not make sense either as it would be to buy more contender barrels or possibly an encore. That’s going to eat more money than I would get by selling stuff so I think it best to hold tight.

    I don't sell guns.

    I have been doing more private lessons and "intro to handgun" classes than ever before, however.

    I'm considering selling some 5.56. It's going for crazy prices around here, and a thousand rounds that cost me $200 would finance a new pistol

    Hi...
    Not selling any firearms or ammunition.
    I bought a couple of Dillon 550s at auction in the last couple of years that I never got around to setting up. My two Hornady LnL progressive presses are fulfilling my needs quite nicely.

    I recently sold the Dillons on EBay for more than twice what I paid for them.
    The money is in the new gun fund, although I don't really need any new guns but that never stopped me from buying a gun before.

    I sold some ammo and reloading supplies to friends who haven't learned to stock up when it was available. I still have more that I can use before I leave this world. Sold a couple of rifles that I had for investments. Made enough to buy a couple of ARs for speculation.

    Everything has its price, but im not actively selling anything. Thought about dumping my ARs (and i did end up giving one to a friend) when this all started as i could have gotten triple what i paid for them, but i didnt and now they are only worth double......and im rather fond of my UL.
    All the guns ive bought have been well under msrp, so havent made an effort to get rid of stuff.

    Wow, I have not been paying attention to ammo prices lately (don't have to). CTD offering steel case wolf .223 at a buck a round?
    Wow.

    Precisely. Most people ignore this.... My colt python went up at least 400$ in value since 2010!!!! Or did it? .... I also think about guns I purchased in the 250-500$ range back when I had 1/3 the income i have now. And now im into guns more like 750-1500$ Interesting.

    I will be selling 1 handgun to a guy I bought it off of. Other than that, I can't think of any reason to sell others.

    Considering selling 450 rounds of 5.7x28. Still waiting for someone to offer me $500 cash or a firearm of same value.

    I am considering selling, but the mark up is almost not worth the headache.

    On the Mini 14, if Gunbroker is to be used as a reference, $800 on the low for Buy Now.

    Haven't sold anything but did give away 5 LBs of black powder. A family member ended up with a few 1911 when their dad passed so I bought them. The one 1911 is Colt pre dating WW I.

    I feel pretty good about offloading a few rarely used handguns earlier in the year, which let me fund a few pieces I REALLY wanted. I sold a Magnum Research 1911 Commander and a CHP marked Smith 4006 for fair prices and managed to get pretty lucky on a LAPD marked Kimber TLE II, and a Langdon custom Beretta PX4 Compact- Both dream guns for me and very happy with them.

    Its also been interesting going through the numerous places in the house i've stashed ammo and other gear over the years. Opened a large pelican case the other day to find ammo in calibers like .30 Luger, .32 ACP and .5.45x39 belonging to guns i havent owned in a decade. All those random ones are probably destined for the swap meet down at my local gun club.

    I've had more than a few non-shooter friends express interest in going shooting as well and helping them pick out a first firearms- glad to say i was able to help them out and hook them up with gun safety classes locally.

    Nothing. Although I probably should consider selling some ammo thats probably surplus to me. But I don't want to deal with the hassle of shipping.

    I did sell about a dozen guns back in February, March and April but it was more of a natural cycle for me to sell some stuff that I didn't shoot and buy some stuff that I would shoot. It was a good time to sell.

    I thought briefly about putting my M1A socom16 on the trade/sell block. Then I remembered how long that rifle was on my wish list. If I sell anything it'll be to buy a different firearm.

    Not selling or buying much. Have some surplus brass and a bin of "odds and ends" but it's hard to price out so it is good for me and the buyer. Maybe the New Year will bring "pleasant surprises." If folks would stop panic buying the market would stabilize. When you have a 20 ft shipping container of TP spotted on your driveway, you've overshot the mark. Joe
