    When do you reach the point that you decide it's time to sell a gun? I know there's probably more than a few of you that never do and I used to think that way.

    I'm having a Marie Kondo

    moment right now and there's a couple of guns in my collection that every time I look at them I just don't want to shoot them.

    They're run of the mill so nothing special but I keep thinking I could dump them and use the funds to get something I really want.

    Am I insane or do others do this too?

    I never shoot any of my rifles.

    I could count on one hand the amount of times I've shot any of my rifles or shotguns in 40 years.

    I have sold of guns to pay for other projects. Currently I'm living off of savings & the need to sell toys have not really come up. A while back I could have sold my Garand but it didn't happen & I am fine with that.

    Unless it is a collectible, something I enjoy shooting, or something that serves a specific role then I typically don't have a problem with selling them to fund something else I'm interested in. I only have so much room in the safes and I'd honestly rather someone else get to enjoy them than sit for decades.

    30 years ago I sold 5 pistols to get a $2500 race gun for IPSC. The only one I regretted selling was the HK P7, but back then you could find them everywhere.

    Then 10 years ago I needed some cash influx for my business. I sold about 20 guns at Market Hall in Dallas.

    Other than those two occasions I just don’t sell guns. Maybe because I keep dropping them in the lake when hunting.

    I haven’t sold a gun in decades. I’ve traded exactly one gun in the same time.

    I’ve also gifted a few.

    In the end, it’s your property and your decision and if you’re happy with whatever the end result is, that’s all that matters.

    I'm selfish....if it goes home with it me...it stays at home...while I do shoot the majority of the collection from time to time, there are a few that are never shot......

    I just finished reading the Ruger 10/22 by Wm. E. Workman.....

    Who knew 10/22's were collectible?
