"I'll Never Sell It"

Im quite new to GL but, like most firearm enthusiasts I have firearms that I feel Id NEVER get rid of... granted most of my friends have seen me go from one to another, but my Ruger Mini 14 tactical is probably never gonna leave my collection.

WHY? Because It wasn't really that much at purchase, I love firing it & it offers soo much for me I cant ever see its resale being worth while.

What are your "Never Sell" firearms & why?

Never say never, when it comes to firearms, or any other material things.

My Hi-Point 4095 carbine. My first gun. My brother bought it for me before he went to Afghanistan. It works perfect even after ten years.

My GLOCK 27. My first GLOCK and my first pistol I carried. Went everywhere with me for a year.

I'll never sell my glock 23c. It was my first Glock and still the best handgun I've ever owned.

Truthfully, all but one of my firearms either holds sentimental value or is otherwise pretty badass, so I'm pretty sure that in 30 years from now, I'll still own everything that I currently own.

Right now I only have a Gen 3 23 that I will never, ever, ever sell. Not only is it my first Glock, but it's my first firearm period. I really hope that I can be one of those lucky guys who never ever has to sell a firearm. I plan on trying to buy only guns I've heavily researched, and will keep forever. I hate selling stuff, because I always feel like I'll regret it later, even if it's something I've never used. But I don't think I'll get any safe queens, I want to actually use and abuse everything I buy.

Awesome! congrats on your first banger being a firearm of such value and dependability. Yes, do you whatever you can so if need be you dont have to revert to selling the 23. I wish I had saved properly years ago so I didnt have to sell my first handgun.

I absolutely have to agree with that remark.

I have seen many friends being forced to sell guns over the years and have seen more than one friend sizing down for health reason, there is nothing that you can take with you on that last journey.

I have an easy way out, I am already giving my guns to my sons, little by little.

Useless Energy,
It looks as if you kept the BMW 2002, I sold mine and that is the only car that I was attached to.

Of course there are times you must downsize due to a situation out of your control.

Case in point, the BMW 2002, I love that little car but due to current job outlooks im going to have to sell it this spring to help pay for my school loans.

Obviously Im aware that You should never bet on being able to retain something for life, but it would be nice to be able to hold onto something sentimental and that is why I created this thread.. for those whom have a hope that they will never have to part with a special firearm.

My Dan Wesson model 15. I'd sell it like I'd sell my right arm.

OP, you asked a question. I gave my answer, and I should have made it clearer that it applies for me personally. There is no lesson intended. Folks do whatever they do with their stuff. Doesn't bother me.

Pretty much on the same page, I'd say but I guess I probably have some thirty odd years of added life experience.

The U.S. warden had read me a message about twenty years ago and asked me to get out of a Third World country, I left a lot of things behind, or sold them for next to nothing and I have learnt not to be attached to "things" and not take anything for granted.

I did not sell my 1936 rinfire Walther PP, not my priced Anschütz 1423, 1422, 1420, and Walther KKJ. I gave them to my sons this January.

It's the one on the right side

The Python will be next but the last handgun that I want to part with is my Korth - I try to shoot it to pieces.
