You dont have to be ashamed or seem greedy....come out and admit it!
I recently sold 3 guns for one simple reason: people are paying higher prices for them (and a LOT for some of the high demand models) and I saw it as an investment opportunity to sell.
I was able to kill off a credit card, pay off a huge expense that came out of nowhere....and throw some money into savings. Sold a Glock 26, a Kel-Tec .223 pistol, and a sweet little Rossi snubbie 38. Each gun I sold went for way above what I paid for them brand new! You just cannot argue with that....at best your LGS will give you half of the value depending on its condition and extras.
This is absolutely a seller's market, anyone else take advantage of it?
