    Sold my guns

    Had to sell my gun and my wife's today. Hated every second of it. Got $300 for an XD .40 SC and $125 for a Keltec P3AT. Could have done better I'm sure, but I'll take what I can get.

    Gonna have to pick up some OC to cover us for awhile.

    You have your wife. Everything else is just a thing and can be replaced.

    I feel your pain. I had 5 handguns, 3 shotguns, SKS, and 22 rifle.

    Now all I have is 3 handguns (mine, the wife's, and my DE), my great granddaddy's Mossberg 20ga and my granddaddy's 22 rifle.

    My truck is next on the hit list, then the wife's car, (down grade on both), the wife's motorcycle (all ready sold mine) then it may come to the DE. After that we really have nothing of value. We will loose the house before we give up either of our babies.

    I think a lot of us may get there in the same boat, it is pretty scary. I owe so much on the house than what it's worth, The banks can have it. Both my grandfather's had to start over after the depression, I guess I could do it also.

    Or a couple of inexpensive folders, I'd prefer a knife to OC. Good luck in these hard times. Things can be replaced, remember to count your blessing... the 'things' that really matter.

    Mindset and situational awareness are the most important part of your self-defense arsenal; having a firearm just gave you more options. If you can keep out of trouble you won't miss having a gun (as much!).

    blasphemy!!!, I sold my first gun this weekend to one of my best friends. The [Edited] bought it, Because he knows I do not sell guns. He bought it more for the satisfaction of knowing he got my first one. and hopefully last one!!!

    I am sorry some of you had to do it. Times are tough. Especially here in AZ. last night I heard on the radio. That AZ has the worst economy in the United States......I was like tell me something I don't know. But I guess it's official now.

    On the brite side, They said that we will have a booming economy when this turns around. More than the rest of the country. Hopefully it will come around quick.

    Stay safe

    P.S.
    I lost 125k on my house a few months ago. I'm to afraid to look now.........

    I've had to sell before , never fun. Stay focused and take care of business. Things will turn and you'll get your piece of mind back.

    I'm thinking of selling all but the most important before they are illegal. I think now is the time to sell, not buy. If, that is, your like me and can't bear to think of having to turn them in to be destroyed. I also think it makes sense in a buy low sell high kinda way too.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    You can do like me and clean out your house and sell unwanted stuff on Ebay. It is like a second job. My suggestion is sell the big ticket items first, electronics seems to go good.

    Yeah, we too ran into some tough times and I had to sell my Ruger P90, Keltec P3AT, Ruger 10-22, and a Winchester .30-06. That left me with a 4" 5-shot Astra Cadix .38spcl, a H&R 20 ga. single shot, a 16 ga. bolt action, and a Winchester 94AE .3030. I tried to CC the .38 but it was a pain - front sight jabbed me and hammer got caught when drawing from a belly band. It's an odd make from the 60's and haven't found a good holster for it.

    I was lucky enough to be able to obtain a Glock G27 a few months later. I hope to add a 12 .ga HD shottie to my meager collection soon. Then maybe add another Ruger 10-22 or mini-14. Limited budget means I must choose well. But, good times come and go. Just prioritize and be flexible. Family and good health will keep you going through hard economic times. Best of luck to you!

    Selling guns sucks. Especially if you're afraid of them being made illegal and taken from you and thats the purpose of selling them.
