What are your "Never Sell" firearms & why?
I have some old long guns my dad purchased for me when I was a boy and some he gave just before he passed away a year ago. None of them are "high-end" guns but are priceless to me. Those will be passed down to my son. The rest of my personal guns may come and go at any moment if the deal is right.

Brian,

I wonder if you ever sold a gun! I have sold a few that I came to regret over the years, some that I re-purchased, even.

I feel the pain, brother! I gave my HK P9S to my friend who was my best man and crossed the Atlantic for it. At least I had the priviledge to teach his son to shoot with that gun.

And then I have guns that I got from friends that have a special place, are above the rest for sentimental reasons.

I think that this is what you are really driving at, sentiments. It is good that we can afford them.

Man, I've sold one gun because I kinda bought it on a whim, didn't really like it, and never shot it. Otherwise, I just can't see myself selling any guns.

It's like my tool collection. I don't use all of them frequently but I like knowing they're there. Just last night I was in my shop cleaning some guns I hadn't handled in a while. It's like seeing an old friend.

My never sell gun is an heirloom singleshot 410 that gets passed down by generations. From my great grandfather to me, our names are all whittled in under the butt plate.

My S&W M&P9L isn't going anywhere. I know it's just a plain Jane plastic pistol but that thing is just dead nuts reliable, and I love shooting it.

My G26 is too useful and versatile to sell.

I also have a Beretta 92FS Inox that I would only sell if I absolutely had to. It is a beautiful gun both aesthetically and functionally, and it was a reward for losing a major amount of weight and getting healthier, so there is a certain amount of "trophy" sentiment attached to it.

There are two other guns I don't have yet, but which will probably be mine within the next year or two when my elderly father joins the choir silent. One is a Winchester bolt-action .22LR that he has owned since he was young, and which was the first firearm I ever shot. The other is a Taurus .38 special revolver. It is just an OK shooter and its trigger is pretty gritty, but my dad also had it for a long time and it just isn't going anywhere after he leaves me.

Completely, the attachments we gain with inanimate objects can get pretty silly; but like you said, at least we are able to taste the luxury of owning/affording them.

I'm with Bac1023. He's a wise man. Not that I have anything of any great value. But they're valuable to me!

Now, if I had something sentimental, like some of y'all have...I'd still follow Mr. Lewis' sound advice:


Slainte!

I'm always buying and selling. Every time I tell the wifey "I'm keeping this one" she says it will be gone in a week. My kids know something is up when they see a gun pic from the collection on the computer screen. They know its up for sale. Just bought a Sig MK25 and I sold it two days later. Did I mention I get bored easy?? Funny how us men are saving guns to pass to our sons. They mean far more to us then they do them. Hell- I'm sure whatever guns i do pass down to my boys will be sold sometime between my viewing and burial.

I've never sold a gun, and I hope / plan to never sell any of my collection. My plan is only to ADD to it.

I can't really see selling or trading any of my firearms. Unless I was extremely desperate for money. The one I no matter what wouldn't sell is my Winchester 1897

Keeping these as they are sentimental...

Winchester Model 94 - 32 Win Special - Got it for Christmas when I was about 12 years old.

Glock 19 - 9mm - Got it when I was about 19 years old.

I'm 28 years old now

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.

Very nice. I would think that giving guns to your sons warms the heart more than selling them. I don't know for sure as I have neither sons nor Anshutz, but that is my guess.
