All I can say is hang on to family heirlooms. The day will come when you'll hate yourself for selling grandpa's 100 year old gun. I rarely sell a firearm, I try to buy quality then hang on to them.

I've only ever sold two firearms, my Taurus 1911 and my Beretta 96, I bought the 1911 back and may buy the beretta back eventually. (Sold both to my dad)

I don't think it's wise, I agree with Quentin. I don't sell. Trading to enhance is ok with me as long as the weapon wasn't a heirloom.

I've only sold 2 firearms so far. An old US Smith-Corona 30-06, and a 410 topper (I have another and a beautiful deluxe topper). All my guns have been handed down to me from my father and grandfather. No more will be sold, I have a hard time parting with things. these 2 guns were an extra and a cool old rifle that my grandad bought from the government a long time ago. These gave way to my acquisitions which include a couple glocks, an ar15 (w/ 5 more stripped lowers and some stripped uppers waiting) and a new shotgun.
