I've been thinning out the herd for the last 6 months and I'm down to the ones I'd never sell which are...Bren 805, cz 557 urban counter sniper .308, 527 in 7.62x39, 457 Pro Varmint, TSO and DW Eco. Never thought I'd sell my shadow 2 but I am....to fund a lowly shadow 2 orange. I have a P10s and a sig p938 I doubt I'd sell but if I find and buy a sig mpx K one will probably get sold to help fund it. Oh and my moss 590 will never leave either.

I will never trade the 5 weapons that I have mainly used for hunting for over 30 years now:
1) Blaser rifle SR 850/88, cal .30-06, since 2006 with a Zeiss scope Diarange 3-12x56, before that with a Swarovski 3-12x56
2) Tikka 412 S over and under gun, cal .30-06 and 12/76 (12 / 3inch), with a Swarovski scope 3-12-56 , and an additional double shotgun barrel cal 12/76 (12 / 3inch)
3) Shotgun Winchester Super Grade cal 12/70 (12/2.75inch)
4) Shotgun Tundra (Russian) cal 12/70 (12/2.75inch), for hunting while lousy weather
5) Anschütz rifle 1516 cal 22 WMR for hunting rabbits on sports grounds

12 years ago I came to the conviction that for a successful hunt you only need basic equipment with weapons that have proven to be absolutely reliable and accurate.
So at that time I sold all my 7 additional long guns that were still there.

  The only one for me really is my Remington 550-1. Nothing fancy, but it was my first rifle given to me when I was 7 or 8. Nearly 40 years later I still have it. None of the other stuff I own has any real sentimental value to me and just fills a niche, even though that niche is frequently "I want one".

     I would never sell my 1970's Colt Python (chrome), CZ Shadow 2, Custom CZ P-01 and S&W Model 41.
     I would have difficulty selling most of my other pistols and revolvers.  My Grandson will inherit them.

I have never sold or traded a gun...so far.
One main reason is that none of my guns (with possibly 1 or 2 exceptions) are what most would consider "collectible", so they have lost value since I bought them.
I'd rather keep it in the safe than sell it for a 50-75% loss. At that rate I'd keep them all and hand them out to family and friends if/when the SHTF.
Having said that, IF the time ever comes where I could recoup 75% of my purchase price, only those few that I currently use for various competitions would remain.

they are very nice, the new production SIG 210s don't have the safety in the forward location
