    I like that idea JCN. If you can afford to help your friends and family it is very good of you.

    I used to want to hold onto all of them, but now, if they do not serve a purpose for me, they can for someone else. I can use that money for more ammo or accessories. When I got my Hellcat which I really like, the P365 current production kept calling to me. So it now the P365 has EDC duty. My Shield v2.0 9mm I just sold to a guy who carries the Shield .40 and was looking to downsize the round, so it has a perfect home. Plus it only had 66 rounds through it and had factory night sights. It will now be used and appreciated.

    I too have firearms that my dad gave me and they will be passed down. Lucky for me my daughter appreciates them and will not sell them off when I croak.

    Sold 2 Pmags, New in the bag for $12 each and 5 boxes a TulAmmo .223 for $8 each because a friend (female) needed a gift for her son's birthday.

    I bought some Frontier 223 when it first came out and before reading some reviews. I'd love to sell the 4 or 5 boxes I have now.

    A lot of these "friends and family" never bought firearms and ammo because they knew you had them and they could always come to you if things got bad.

    I was actually told this a long time ago. Today, I keep my mouth shut in terms of what I have.

    I've been thinking carefully about selling off some stuff but it'll be through a dealer or GunBroker.

    I’m not selling any extra ammo or guns. Sometimes peace of mind is worth more than extra cash.

    I don't have enough guns. I sold a lot of them 20yrs ago and haven't replenished them yet.

    Me too. I was hammered by a popular member here for buying some stripped AR lowers right before Trump was elected. He called me some not nice names for buying them with the intent of selling them later when the prices went up. He said he hoped I’d lose money on them or be stuck with them.

    Well, he’s not here anymore and I sold them all in the past few months. I made some damn good $$$ on them. Damn good $$$. I love capitalism.

    I have two nephew, both of them are doing very well. They both have an interest in firearms and have been told through out the years to buy when they had the chance. Neither of them had stock and I kicked on a few hundred rounds. I just asked them to save the brass please.

    I’m in the same boat. A few friends and family just assume I have some to spare. “Can I buy a box of ammo from you?” or “Next time you buy ammunition, I will take a box”.

    They all know if SHTF, I would bail them out with a little, but then they are part of my crue.

    I have sold a couple. Not just to make money, but because I had already been considering selling them. I had hesitated previously because I wasn't likely to break even. Now was the time to sell and not lose money. Coming out ahead 2-3 hundred dollars was a bonus.

    What I do have is enough to make sure my family could be armed in a moment of need or the kids have something to take with them when they grow up and get their own places and still leave a couple for me.

    For better or worse, there really isn't anything left to give a friend a deal.

    “Enough guns”. Completely foreign concept. I will continue to increase my excellence.
