Default I'm sad, feeling pretty down.

Last 6 months have been rough, I've almost lost everything and it's still not good, I've had to sell every gun I have to stay above water, besides an old trusty shotty that ain't worth a damn to anyone but me anyhow. I'm still fully in love with firearms, that hasn't been quelled so it's kinda painful, especially with the Open Carry Texas movement in Texas right now, something I've always been really for, I can't participate in person only remotely without a rifle lol.

I'm just bitching, I want to shoot something, somewhere, the thought to hit the range is not only a desire but a NEED...

Have you ever lost your collection only to start over?

I'm so sorry. I hope things get better for you. If I ever have to sell my guns for money, I'm hoping to sell them to friends who will sell them back to me when I can afford it. Kind of like a loan with collateral. I hope I never get to that point.

Why don't others sell their guns when they get desperate for money instead of using them to rob?
You are a saint.

In my life, I have been financially busted twice. Hang in there, you will recover and come back stronger than before. It is very depressing and can affect your feelings of self-worth, and that is normal. Patton was famous for saying "don't give council to your fears." Life gives us tests from time to time, out of the tests come lessons to prepare for the next test.

This too shall pass.

Yes, been there done that about 24 years ago. Started collecting again in 2004 and now it's twice the size.

Good luck and hold on things will get better.

Ben there, done that. Have been on just plain hard times when I was a youngster. Have had times we needed money for something for the kids.

Not a WANT, but a NEED. When that time comes, you keep your priorities straight. And this too shall pass.

Most go through hard times but it does usually get better. There is more important things in life than firearms believe it or not.

Sorry to hear, Weibel...
When I lost everything, I managed to keep my G30 and Rem .308, but not much else......including house.
It does get better, driven in no small part by ones dissatisfaction of current position, income, burdens, ...love life for some, lifestyle for others.
Where abouts in Texas are you?

Most of us have been there at some point so don't think it's just you. And it will get better because of the painful lessons you've learned from this experience. The lessons that hurt the most are also the ones where you learn the most.

To this day I do everything I can to avoid having debt or payments of any kind because of the hard lessons I learned as a youngster. I don't ever want to be in that position again.
