    I've sold a couple of M&P 9c's recently. Both were purchased only because they were "good deals" and went to friends at cost.

    In '88, I foolishly sold all but the heirlooms. NEVER AGAIN

    This one, My FN-49. I purchased it during the surplus boom (late 80's - early 90's). 8mm Mauser was available cheap. All the same I never really liked it.

    I have a few Gen2 Glocks I would part with if I “needed” to.

    I've sold three guns and had one stolen from me,(over 20 years ago). I regretted selling them, (and losing the one). I will not sell any more of my firearm collection but will gift them to my two sons when the time is right.

    My father is trying to unload his 1976 S&W model 27-2 with original box, cleaning kit, papers, and receipt.

    I, on the other hand, could part with the Sig Mosquito .22 that I bought for my ex to practice with.

    It's not that we have different tastes, just different budgets!

    I have bought and sold hundreds of guns since my first purchase in 1962. I have moved across the US several times in the military or for jobs later. I have sold entire large collections including the safe before moving across country. I only kept one or two guns for me and my wife during the move. I have owned and sold the same model gun three or four times.

    I'd buy the Shield 45 in a heartbeat, even though I don't need any more guns right now. @rlggray , PM me w/ details/condition/year bought, etc. if you really want to sell it.

    I’m in the down sizing mode right now. I’ve sol half a dozen guns before this last year. I’m the last year I’ve sold an AR, an AR pistol, an XDs 9mm, and a Mosin.

    Have a Remi 12 tactical I want to sell, a Springfield Micro 1911, a Springfield XD in 9mm, SA XDm in 9, and maybe a Glock 26. Just have to find the right buyers.

    I have an old Davis .380 that I wouldn't have a problem parting with. And an old NEF single shot 12ga. That I could let go of.

    the only thing i have i would consider parting with is a m&p 40c m2.0. only about 400 rounds down the pipe. the only thing really keeping it here is the fact that i don't have any holsters yet for 1911s. come to think of it, i might consider selling the marlin 336c waffle top in 32 winchester special. but, that would have to be a special case for that to happen. everything else i have is inherited, and will be passed down.

    I've been selling some guns here and there lately - basically sold all my plastic guns.

    I had 1 left...a Taurus G2 9mm...just had more into it with extra mags and stainless guide rod upgrade than I could get back out of it...they sell so dang cheap brand new.

    BUT

    A friend wanted an inexpensive 9mm so off went the G2 literally this past week.

    I got a few bucks to put towards something new and he got a solid 9mm with a few extra 18 round mags with grips sleeves = win / win.

    Not sure what I'm going to put the funds towards...could be a pistol caliber carbine, an old S&W revolver, a "nice" 9mm of some kind...honestly its kinda fun knowing I can get something new when it catches my fancy.

    I’m unlike most people here...except for a few special items, my entire collection (or “The Armory" as I like to call it) could go for the right price. At any given time, I’ve usually got anywhere from one to five guns listed on Armslist and local boards.

    There have only been a few pieces that I’ve sold/traded over the years that I look back and think...”man, I shouldn’t have let that one go...”; but to the best of my knowledge, of those few, there’s only one I missed enough to actually replace.

    I guess to me...they’re just guns.
