My grandfathers uncles gun. It's a Colt 45 govt model. Serial # gives it a 1914 born on date. Carried and used in WWI. Made it back to the US after my great uncle was KIA. The gun even has a battle scar. Still shoots and is in good shape, all things considered. This gun will get handed down and hopefully never leave the family.

All of my guns are for sale, even the family heirlooms.

Some just have a really high price on them.

Sums it up for me too. I've got a couple I'll "never sell" but that's only because they're so cheap I wouldn't get enough for them to make it worth my time and energy.

I have spent years getting the guns I have at this point and I plan to keep them. Who knows what is to come. They are just things. As I explained to my Son I don't need things to remember people. He wanted a gun that my dad had given me and I let him have it. He was concerned that it was something that I needed to remember dad. I explained that I didn't need it. I have plenty of memories of Dad all I have to do is just think of him and I am flooded with them.

My dear old Dad owned this Seecamp in 25acp.

I'll never sell it.......but, if someone wanted it bad enough, even it would have a price. If someone wanted to give me $100,000 for it.......well, Dad would understand!

My scoped M1A Match is more accurate than most bolt guns. It's a keeper and has a perfect 2lb factory trigger in it. Colt Series 70 Gold Cup and Sig 220 would never leave either. Like my Glocks but I would even keep my HK USPF 45 first as a polymer gun.

I haven't owned very many (still in my 20's). Springfield XD40, Taurus .38 super, Glock 24, and a Ruger MK3. I've also got good trigger time on a few 1911s and Smith & Wesson poly guns. My Gock 23 is my favorite because of how well it fits my hand and how natural my POA is with it. It's like it was built for me. I got the trigger sitting at a 3.25# pull just how I like it. I've put up my best times shooting in practical pistol matches with my G23. And it's also been diehard reliable (even with a tac light). I honestly couldn't ask for more out of a handgun.

Typically I do a lot of research before every purchase so there is a definite reason for owning each of my guns.

That being said, the last guns I'd want to let go of right now are all my evil "assault rifles", for obvious reasons.

I upgrade my tools so I sell my old ones to get the fund for the new stuffs. Firearms are just tools, so I do sell them for upgrade/change purposes.

I'll give you that, and tailor my answer accordingly.

My XD 357 was purchased with some money my Grandfather left me. I intend to keep it until I'm in the dirt, unless it goes to one of my kids first.

Been shooting Cowboy Action for a long time. After a lot of guns going down the road, I've settled on 2 pair of Great Western IIs, one with real case hardening from Turnbull. A 38 only limited edition Marlin, and a custom replica 1897 Winchester 12 gauge.
On the self defense side, a Ruger lcp with laser, my gen4 g26 and an XDM 3.8 .45 compact.
Years ago, my dad was a champion target archer because he didn't keep switching to the new "bow of the year"'

Every firearm I have at this time, has sentimental value. So I will never sell or trade them unless it is truly an absolute necessity and I have exhausted all other reasonable means to get money.

Most of the guns that I have now I will not likely sell, but my Smith & Wesson Model 29-2 4" I will never sell it and it will be passed down to one of my kids. I hope they do the same.

My fathers duty pistol that he used while on duty. A Taurus pt-101. One of the first ones made without rails. Its more of a safe queen these days but I will never sell it.

Thanks to everyone for your posts; whether telling us about your prized firearm that has large sentimental value or, why, although you greatly enjoy and cherish specific firearms, you realize that sometimes you have to make financial decisions for the best of your family which rules out being able to keep the said gun.

To certain members, Im sorry, I didnt mean to come across as a young gun whose hard headed and ignorant - I appreciate all your advise and points of views.. thanks

I thought Id post up some handguns that I truly miss, and because life happened I had to get rid of.

the Beretta 96 was my first handgun
the Kimber Pro Carry 2 was a great carry gun
the Glock m20 was a beast

I wish I was able to hold onto them; but when it comes to debt or taking care of loved ones, obviously the guns had to go

I suppose the only one that would come close to earning that label would by the Marlin Model 60 my grandfather gave me. It's then only gun I have that has any sentimental value to it.
