To Sell, Or Not To Sell, That Is The Question...

Selling guns....I've always told myself, "Nah, I'll never sell any of these things." But I'm not real sure why. I'm not one of those people who wants a pile of guns just to have them because they're cool, I typically buy things because I have a specific use for them. I have several pistols, most of which I'll never use, but most of them I will definitely not sell because they actually do serve a purpose. But there IS a couple of them that I just don't see a real use for any more. I mean, one of them I bought brand new several years ago and haven't even loaded a mag for it, let alone fire it. No, I don't want to sell any of them. But there are other things out there that would be far more useful.
I'm not exactly sure why I'm posting this. Maybe I just want affirmation that it wouldn't be stupid to sell what I don't use in order to fund what I actually need? I donno.

What are your thoughts on selling firearms?

For some, it's "an investment", but that ain't me. I buy shit to use it.

I have the same mindset. If it is sitting there collecting dust, I tend to get rid of it. That's money tied up for something else I could want.

I'm one of the never sell shit guys.  I sold 2 when I first got started and regret the one.  I do view them as an investment, but I also just like having em.  Kind of a collector.  

But I suppose if a gun is worthless to you, and you can't see yourself ever using it, or ever needing to possibly use it in a pinch, there's no harm in selling it.

Ive bought and sold dozens of guns over the years, none hold sentimental value, im not a collector. Over the years ive consolidated calibers and simplified/minimized my guns to include a few handguns for carry depending on what im wearing. A couple defensive carbines which include my main go to rifle, a backup rifle(mainly for parts), along with a pdw type "pistol", and a couple .22lrs with a couple shotguns for hunting. I only need to worry about buying 4 different calibers.


Ill buy and sell trying to find the best gun for its intended purpose, no way i could afford everything i wanted along the way, so things had to go to help with other projects.

For example, i had a glock 26, traded for a ruger lc9, traded that for a m&p shield, traded that for a kahr cm9, traded that for a g43, then ultimately ended up with a P365 and now the p365 fills the role of mutiple ccw guns.

In my opinion theres no reason to have a bunch of stuff that collects dust unless its sentimental. Just my 2 cents
