    So i recently bought my first rifle in november. I have dumped $4000 into my ddm4v1 by way of optics, mags, sights, cases, and ammo.

    With all the craziness going on now, i am thinking about selling it all for a small profit. My logic is that ammo prices will probably never ( at least not in the near future) return to normal. Not sure i can afford to keep shooting once ive run through my relatively small stock. And im not interested in keeping a rifle that im afraid to burn through ammo.

    Part of me thinks im being foolish and giving up, while another part doesnt want to get stuck with a toy i cant play with.

    Can someone talk me down off the ledge? uploadfromtaptalk1358919474466.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1358919488692.jpg

    Yes, i know, the trigger lock is pretty much pointless...it's just there to keep the kids honest

    To sell your one and only (?) is to give the anti-RTKBA crowd everything they desire. It's akin to total capitulation on a bedrock principle, that recognized an inherent RIGHT, as enshrined in the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

    You asked for my opinion, and I have obliged you.

    Keep it, eventually when everything dies down (had you sold it) you'll be kicking yourself in the ass and wishing you would have never gotten rid of it. Hindsight is always 20/20

    Sell it at a profit and use the money to buy something cheaper plus a bunch of ammo. That way you will have a good rifle you can actually afford to shoot.

    The last thing that I'd do right now is to sell one of my "Freedom Rifles".

    Not your one and only and with 4k into it, no way you're going to reap big profits.

    And when you need it?

    Besides, you don't need a huge stockpile of ammo, you can't carry 1000 rounds anyway. Not easily and still be effective at anything.

    200 rounds or so is a good place to be. You can also do a "mental range day". Just practice your sight picture, breathing and trigger control in your mind. Picture all the details and repeat it often. While iris not a full on replacement of actual shooting, it will help you tremendously to keep a small amount of shooting proficiency in the long run.

    Try feeding 6! Keep it or get something cheaper.

    Sell it.

    But then, I am not in the financial position to spend that kind of cash on a rifle anyway. So the world may look different to you.

    With the proceeds, you could buy multiple long arms after this craziness dies down.

    I don't completely agree with that. He would at least be providing somebody else an opportunity to exercise their 2nd Amendment right. If he was contemplating trading it in for a gift card at a gun buy back, then I would totally agree with you.

    In any case, I say hang onto it unless you are in absolute dire need of the money. I sold a Colt CAR-15 prior to the last AWB for a handsome profit, but I still regret it to this day.
