This^^. If they were simply run of the mill, common guns, I would say "go for it." In this instance, each one is at least uncommon and not something you can simply go and order at the LGS.
Note: I'm a bit of a pack rat, not just guns either. I've never sold a gun.

I'm with these guys. I couldn't sell any of my guns. Of course, I don't have many. It's not like your about to lose the house or are starving. I couldn't sell any gun to buy another. I'd try to save for it.

Have you ever seen the movie "Sophie's Choice"?

Personally I'd only sell if I was in a major bind. Out of all of those (this may be unpopular) I'd sell the Blackhawk, and the Crazy Horse.

If you are absolutely, positively, 100% sure you must sell.

My choice would be the rifles as others have suggested.

But,

I think of all the guns I have disposed of for various reasons,

and,

and Damn I have regrets.


PS,
I have several guns I haven't fired in years.
If I get rid of any one of them it would be like losing a friend.
Which shall I get rid of,
the Luger,
the Sako,
the Model 12,
the H K,
the old S & W 45.
the Anschuts, spelling?
????
and my Granddaughter will disown me.

If it were me, I'd sell the rifles. I don't want any guns that I'm not gonna shoot. While they might be collectable, they would be useless to me. I had rather turn then into something I could use and enjoy. I always said that I would never sell a gun, but a little over a year ago, I sold my first one because I didn't use it. Once I turned it into something I did use, I realized it wasn't so bad after all. I have since sold off all the guns I didn't use and have not regretted it.

That's the truth! An authentic "Indian rifle" would be all beat to crap with some crude decorations. Now that might be worth keeping!

I would sell anything that just gathers dust. The rifles would be first to go for me. There just flash with no special dash, No better than a plain jane '94

Thanks for all the input guys, I think I am going to have to get rid of the rifles. If I do decide to keep one of the rifles, I am going to keep the legendary frontiersman and I'm going to shoot the daylights out of it. If something is going to be in my safe then I'm going to use it.

To answer some of the questions, yes I do have the boxes and all the paper work for the rifles.

Thanks again for all the input!
