    A Dikson 38 special I got from my Dad when he passed. Looks like new, it should for an 85 dollar new gun,. I did fire 6 rounds out of it to make sure it works and keep it in my nightstand, I would rather it get taken in a home robbery than one of my better guns

    The Colt No 4 and the Butler is a derringer by the way, not a revolver. The Blue Book shows a value of the Colt (cased set) at about $450 in NIB condition. Not much interest there.

    I have a couple:

    A Sterling .25 semi-auto that hasn't been fired in at least 30 years. I remember this one rattling around in the glove box of my Mothers car for years. It used to jam like crazy until my Dad figured out that it was because the clip didn't fit "up" into the gun far enough. A little JB Weld on the bottom of the clip and all was well......

    An H&R Topper model 48 12 ga. single shot. I don't know where my Dad got this....probably from an auction. It looks like someone drug it behind their pick-up on a gravel road.

    Cheers,

    PS!

    Savage 63, or is it a 67? Single shot 22wmr with a "mannlicher" stock and mostly sheet steel parts. Won't sell.....heck, probably couldn't find a buyer. (new, btw)

    Would probably be this old High Standard Double Nine. I'm sure it's not worth $50.00, but it just keeps working and has been and is, a great truck gun.

    CBC single-shot shotgun. Won't get rid of it because in the 20 years I've had it, it's doubled it's value to an amazing 56 bucks. At that rate I need keep it only another 160 years and it will net me over 13,000 dollars. Amazing.

    In all fairness, at our current rate of inflation, I don't think it will take near that long to make a fortune. :D

    The Detonics Pocket 9
    I dumped it in 1995 after having great expectations of a real pocket gun which could hit the point of aim.
    This overweight PPK size cannon had about a 22 pound DA trrigger pull.
    The blow back action kicked like heck. Accuracy was on por with a derringer. Luck would be the only way it could happen.
    Worst thing is I traded a Nazi marked .32 PPK and cash for it.
    Oh well that is life.

    An ole Ithaca 22 m 49, lever action single shot. Learned to shoot on that thing. There wasn't a single bird that was safe on our property while I was on duty as a child. Mostly sparrows. The back sights were so jacked up it was rediculous. I never moved them in fear of breaking it. I was and am the only one that can shoot the thing and hit something. I know right were to aim and its in no way on the target. I could probably fix it but it just wouldn't be the same if someone else could shoot that gun and hit something there aiming at.

    > Rogak 9mm pistol...I have one in my collection...don't work.

    Considering it was manufactured in Morton Grove, Illinois, that may have been a design feature.

    A couple old Iver Johnson pistols I obtained over the years. They aren't worthless, but there's nothing special about them either. Still, I don't typically sell firearms.

    My Remington 522 Viper that my dad gave me when I was 13 years old is my most worthless gun that I will not sell. It has a cheap Tasco .22 scope on it that to this day (over 20 years later) still holds zero. I know for the most part the Viper was junk, but as long I feed it Remington ammo it doesn't jam (Federal ammo on the other hand does not feed well at all in it). The 3 steel magazines I have for it are worth more than the rifle.

    My daughter loves shooting it when I take her out the range with me, she'll probably get it when she's older.

    My most "Useless" firearm would be my Hi-Point JCP in .40S&W.

    It was my first firearm, it's completely useless for CCW (not an issue at the time since I was in a 'may' issue state), heavier than a 3lbs hammer and about as ugly.

    But since it was my first, shoots fantastic especially for the price point and it is ACCURATE and RELIABLE, i'll never give it up even though it's probably worth less than 150...

    Llama IX-A ... Bought it from an Army soldier in Alaska back in '79. It needs some work but won't part with it.

    I've got a old Colt Police Positive (or clone thereof) whose rifling is shot, has no firing pin and is pretty ratty...also an old NEF shotgun which is just a wall hanger...but both came from my grandfather's house...plus I am a hoarder anyway.

    It takes a big man to say that. :D

    I have an old H&R model 600 that I bought new in 1968. It has no real value, but so many generations of my family have enjoyed shooting it, that I would never sell it. The darn thing is like a Timex watch. Inexpensive, but just keeps running.

    RG .22 revolver, it was given to me is the only reason I own it. No excuse for that being over 30 years.

    A Hoban single shot .22 boys rifle that was given away for selling Cloverleaf Salve way back in the later 40's and early 50's. Not much colectors value, not real accurate, but it goes bang almost every time and brings back fond memories of Happy Days gone by. It did bring back many squirrells way back when.

    Diamondback DB9. Loved the design. Hated the reliability.
