    I have bought some and got rid of them because I wasn't happy with them, or was made an offer I couldn't refuse, but I don't see my XD .45 going anywhere anytime soon.

    I probably would never get rid of my FNH PS90 although someone offered me a sig 556 in trade for it which made me seriously consider it because i really really like those sigs! I'm glad i stuck with the PS90 though

    My Glock 19 is the one I intend to keep no matter what happens.

    When I was a little kid my family had nothing, so my dad took his only 2 handguns, Arminius .357 & a S&W 28-2 4inch, to a pawn shop in East LA. We got money to make it thru the next week till payday, but my dad wasn't able to get his handguns back. When he went to get them out of pawn he found out that the OR DL he pawned them under was not acceptable, and that he had to have a CA DL in order to get them. We had only been in CA for a few week at that point, so he hadn't gotten the time to take care of things at the DMV. When he found out he needed at CA DL he headed right down and got one, but when he came back to the pawn shop the guy had sold them.

    Once I turned 18 I started looking for replacements, but it took time before I could get the money together and find some that were in similar condition to what his were. I found one several years ago, and shortly before my dad passed I was able to find the second and return them to their home. It was a good thing.

    I don't have any guns with enough sentimental value to make me say I'd never sell/trade them.

    I've got a bunch that aren't worth enough to make it say it.

    My Glock 23....it was my first carry weapon given to me as a college graduation present by my parents. It will always be in my inventory.

    My Winchester Model 70 Classic Sporter LT in .270 with a Nikon Monarch UCC 3-9x40 on it. It was my first hunting rifle that was all mine...paid for with my dime. Cuts ragged bullet holes with 130 grain Federal Premium Sierra Game King BTSP.

    My Ruger GP100 357 4 Inch has been with for many moons now. I'm hoping this 3 inch will be the same, any more problems out of it though and we'll see. I might be tempted to go with a Rossi like my wife, her's is problem free and didn't cost half as much.

    My Remington 870 with a nickle finish that I have had since 1973 when I moved to Florida and had the gun finished to help with the salt air and humidity and my Marlin 39-A Mounty that I have had since the early 60's. I went through a bunch of handguns over the years bur a S&W 686 given by a friend who died a few years back will always be with me. Glocks are my duty and carry weapons today.

    my newest

    Ironically enough, the gun that I don't see ever even thinking about selling or parting with is my newest addition, my G30. I am just soooo impressed with this gun so far. The supreme stopping power of a 45 in a concealable package and without having to sacrifice round capacity in a 10 round magazine. And with the interchangeable nature of magazines with Glock, I just pop in a bigger mag when I get home in the afternoon when concealing is no longer an issue. And it has a picatinny rail on it so once I put my Streamlight TRL-1 on, its an awesome home protection gun.

    I do have a Remington 1300 shotgun that my uncle gave me before he passed away, so I do hold that one close to my heart. It is a long barrel bird shotgun, but I eventually want to turn it into another home defense shotgun.

    I have the S&W 2" Airweight that I carried as an off-duty weapon. It's about 41 years old now and I still carry and shoot it regularly.

    I have some weapons that I could sell, but I made a big mistake by selling some earlier weapons, and now regret it.
    I'm very hesitant when it comes to selling handguns. I could possibly sell a 1911 in the future, but never either of my Glocks, and...I will have more Glocks in my collection.

    The first handgun I purchased has been my favorite... a S&W 681 .357 Mag. It's dependable, accurate, and darn purdy!

    The other one I most likely wont part with is my G27. It's just too accurate and reliable and great for carry.

    I have 3 handguns that won't even get sold by me. A S&W Model 19 4" Nickel in .357. My first handgun. A .22 Browning Buckmark my wife bought me the first Christmas we were married and a Lady Smith Model 36 in .38 Special that I bought my wife the year after we were married. Any of the others are a toss up.
