    I sold a USP to fund a trip to see my then girlfriend. We did eventually end up getting married and just celebrated our 4 year anniversary a bit ago. So, you could say the $750 it cost was worth it.

    Hey.......save up and buy more guns!

    Guns are really cheap, when you consider how much hooking up with the wrong woman will cost you!:rofl:

    Been there, done that! :wavey:

    When it comes to women, guys just throw rationality out the door. Been there done that, but not with guns, though.:embarassed:

    NEVER.

    I did sell some to buy a house, but that's as far as I will go.






    I have since replaced them with ones that I love even more!!!

    It's pretty nice
    Sorry about your situation man. I'd have to lie to say I hav'nt done stupid things for a woman. Just never sold a gun to entertain a woman. If I'm broke, I have a really nice bed and to enjoy it to it's fullest is free since it's paid for.

    You need to find a gun that is so cute and so cuddly that you want to sleep with it.

    Me too. Then I had a lapse in consciousness and got married. She got the house as part of the settlement when we divorced. :whistling:

    You could always try selling girls to chase after guns.

    No, and I never will. Benefits don't outweigh the downside.

    I didn't exactly sell a gun to finance a relationship, but.....

    I was saving up for an engagement ring for several months, my GF & I talked about marriage, she repeatedly said, "Later, after we're married......" then she decided she "wasn't ready to settle down." I said, "OK, no problem."

    I took half of the money I'd been saving for the ring & bought a new Wilson CQB. Unlike her, it's been 100% reliable.
