It just hit me. I own guns like leasing a car. Except for a couple, I buy guns, enjoy them for 2-3 years, sell them at a slightly depreciated price and go get another.


Anyone else "lease" their guns? paw

Sounds about right. But I am close to getting past that point and buying things I really want.

Mine may be more like a girlfriend. There is always a new sexy fun one out there and I usually have to get rid of the old one to get the new one. smile

I've never sold a gun at an appreciated price.

I buy them and keep them and plan on leaving them all to my son. I was never handed anything down so I want to leave him as much as I can.

My dad told me you don't sell guns. I wouldn't sell any of mine unless I was in a pretty bad bind.

Any gun I own that does not have sentimental value will/can get sold. If I kept all my guns, I would have only had a few guns and a boring life. As it is, I've owned every standard battle rifle and pistol for every combatant for every war from the Spanish American war onward. I've owned an extensive collection of WW2 german rifles and pistols and not one but 3 separate WW2 Japanese rifle/pistol/militaria collections. Not to mention collections of pre-ban black rifles, Ruger old model revolvers, and Finish/Russian Mosins...I have no idea how many guns I've owned over the last 40 years. Do I wish I could have kept them all? Hell yeah. I had hundreds of German and Japanese weapons all original, all matching. But at least for me - if I want to buy something I generally have to sell something.

I don't get attached to things. I buy, I play, I get bored, and I sell or trade. Repeat.

I even sell guns to get fishing gear or kayaks at times. flame

Ive bought and sold many over the years. I have some that will never get sold but only because they were gifts. Its pretty rare that Ive made a profit on a gun though. My list of sellable/tradeable guns has also dwindled to a short list now

I've lost money on rifles and optics. Now I buy quality rifle parts that retain most of their value (Manners stocks, CDI bottom metal for instance). I can get most of my money out of them if needed. Finally, I have three rifles that are definitely set up the way I want. All they will ever need is a new barrel, which are like tires on a truck, they're gonna wear out.

One semi-custom rifle may be on the chopping block this year. Again I can get most of my money out of it, use that money to put together something I like better. One other rifle will forever be available for sale for the right price.
