    I know, it's not a pleasant thought, but we will all kick the bucket one day.

    Have you made provisions in your will on who will inherit your
    firearms?

    When my arthritic shoulder can no longer handle recoil, and I am too weak to hold steady with a full-size handgun, I'll sell them off one-at-a-time to finance my retirement.

    Probably most will go to you guys on THR after my wife or daughter figure out that they can sell them on the board.:D

    I think the NRA should set up a service, based on local FFL's,that will come to a deceased's home and arrange for proper sale on an online auction in return for a 10% cut from the proceeds.

    If I need the money, I will sell them as mentioned above. Otherwise, since I am a lefty, my nephew (also lefty) will get all the lefty guns. My daughter will probably get the rest.

    I really like bigfatdave's idea, but I'm siding with PatM. I have three children and have already given them all they want, and have tagged the ones I'm leaving to my grandkids... the rest will be sold, outside of a small handful I'll leave on my survivors to worry about...

    Since we have no children, what I don't sell off to fund my retirement, are in my will to be donated to the NRA and TSRA, whom I assume will sell to raise funds.

    My family supports me when I buy them they can have them when they are gone. If I outlive my wife and kids, well, thats a tradgedy that makes what to do with some stupid plastic, wood and steel pointless.

    I've already divided with my 2 kids, kept a couple of rifles/shotguns and hand guns. Both are grown n gone. What I kept I use. Just seamed like the easiest way to handle it.( I'm not leaving for a few years)LOL

    guns and hunting are a tradition in my family and they will be passed down to members who are worthy...the ones who will treasure them, take care of them properly, and NEVER sell them unless they have no other choice. i dont want mine auctioned off, or to end up at the pawn shop before im even in the ground.

    If my daughter is not yet 18 then everything goes into a trust for her benefit, and a guardian and backup for her have been selected.

    Once she turns 18 I'll have to change my Will.

    since all of my nieces and nephews are too young to have them unless one of my sisters wants one of them (a possibility)


    right now my will just says to talk to the NRA museum about the flintlocks and cap and call pistols and my civil war era converted flintlock. then ask the family if anyone has any interest (doubt it) then the rest will go to my 2 best friends from high school that ive grown up shooting with.

    once i get married that will all change of course.

    I've thought a lot about that. I have a step-son who would certainly appreciate them, but some of mine were my Dad's. He's been gone now over 30 years. I hate to see them leave the family. I'd feel bad about that.

    Heck, the boys are already trying to figure out who's going to get what. Sheesh, and I ain't even close to dead yet.

    LMAO! I aint sure I'll even have any left the way these jackals (kids and wife) keep "adopting" them! I guess if there are any left they will go to the kids and grandbabies.

    And Flint, if you kick before me, I get the .458 SOCOM damnit! I call DIBBS! :D
