I'm guilty of it myself. I bought a marlin 336 from a guy. He bought it new, put a box of ammo through it and his wife made him get rid of it. I paid $125 for it. Put a box of ammo through it and sold it for $200. The ffl I sold it to then sold it for $300. Lmfao

You guys would be surprised. I bought a gun, put exactly seven rounds through it, had a financial emergency and sold it.

That's what I think is going on more often than not. I see regularly, young guys, usually very early 20's, usually with a young wife and a baby, who are the ones most often selling these barely used guns.

Occasionally it's an older man who has a run of bad luck, or doesn't know what he has, or just doesn't care, and they're selling off a gun or two pretty cheap.

I think there's usually a woman involved, and a young fella that doesn't understand anything yet.

Considering I'm still legally married...
I'd trade mine for a runny watery dog turd, and I'd consider myself way ahead of the pack.
