Shiloh Sharps 1863 Carbine. Caseless ammo, so no worries about picking up brass.

My Mossberg 12 gauge - it's the first firearm I ever bought.
My Colt Series 70 - my first 1911 and first Colt.
My Beretta 92 - made in Italy in 1990, it still looks factory fresh and has never been refinished.

My first duty gun, a Glock 22 Gen 3. That one I'll never part with. I can't see parting with any of my AR's either but that Glock holds a special place.

My S&W 629 4" no dash pin and recessed. Searched hi and low for that thing for 2 years and got a steal on it. Will be the last one I part with.

I'll never sell my G27.

$475 with night sights OTD at a pawn shop.

$225 ticket I got making an illegal left turn coming out of the pawn shop at time of purchase.

$175 for LWD 40-9 conversion barrel and two G26 mags.

$300 AA conversion kit.

That's a total of $1175 for my G27, it's not going anywhere.

The only guns I don't plan on selling are out of production and made of steel and wood. Everything else is easily replaced by the next great thing.

I have a lot of guns I'll never sell. Some are heirlooms, others are more difficult to come by. Some are just guns I like and won't part with.

I don't understand the emotional attachment to firearms or material objects in general. That mentality is foreign to me. It almost seems retarded to get attached to such things. Alomost weak minded to allow yourself to be controlled by an object.

There's only one firearm I wouldn't consider selling at this point and only because it was given to me by my wife's father. There's no emotional attachment just feel it would be disrespectful to do so as it was a gift.

I don't understand collecting either. Makes no sense and is impractical. Usually equates to non shooter as well.

Not true if you only "collect" shooters. I like old P&R'd Smiths but they all see the range...no interest in NIB. None have gone down in value.

There is barely a human weakness beyond my understanding. The reasoning why collecting would be impractical and senseless - and being attached to an object appears as a weakness and retarded to you, however, is beyond my reasoning.

I'm here today because of a firearm and I can't even remember the serial number that was once engrained into my mind. Reason, it was nothing but a tool for the job I was tasked. If anyone should feel attachment to a firearm, shouldn't I?

Now we have guys emotionally attached to firearms they've never even shot at the range.

I just look at things from a different perspective.

Attachment to loved ones, understandable. Attachment to some inanimate object to the point bills go unpaid or some other extreme, odd.

Shut up. You've made yourself completely irrelevant.

Some of my guns I'd NEVER part with:

4" blued Python
6" high polish nickel Python

There's several other 1911's and revolvers I could add to that list, as well as rifles and shotty's, but money talks...

I lived through two civil wars and had to defend not only my life but the lifes of my loved ones.

While I have learnt my lesson and have my own perspective, I have learnt to love America for the freedom that is not only granted by the constituion but also by each American that will have respect for other's with a different opinion - as long as it does not curtail their own rights.

I do not see where you fit into that group.
