I believe she claimed at one point that you needed to have the box for warranty purposes which I have never heard of, I can see where it could ad a little value to the collectible gun sale, however these aren't considered collectible guns, I have 3 Winchester Centennial, Bicentennial model 94s, those have never been fired and are all in the original box, my grandpa gave them to us that way, those I can see keeping. But boxes from modern firearms I don't see the sense, I may ad I am not one to sell guns and the couple I have sold over the years to folks I know they don't care about the box, only the functioning firearm. The paperwork, books and stuff I keep, even those infernal gun locks, someday I may find a use for them(doubt it). I will probably keep them for now just to keep the peace, when I build my garage I will stuff them in the rafters and let the squirrels and mice have their way with them. Theyre getting to be quite a waste of space in my reloading room.

I do it. I keep them under the bed with the manuals in them.

I keep all the hard cases. As far as cardboard boxes I keep for a few years.

If it came in a box or case, I keep em! Some are 40+ years old. If I change out parts, the original parts go in the box. If I sell or trade people seem very pleased to have the original box. Got WWI and WWII ammo in the box. Not the shipping cartons.
