    well a few weeks ago i listed my dpms panther M4 for sale and was asking 2100$ for it at the local gunstore i deal with. i wouldnt normally sell an AR15 but i figure hey why not putting a ridiculous price and see what happens. make it worth my while to sell a gun. im asked frequently at ranges if i want to sell some of my guns even before this gun ban idiocy started and i always quote stupid prices. so its not like im doping anything i dont normally do when selling a gun for cash. i dont really like losing a gun just for money so i always want to make sure im going to get a stupid amount if i sell strictly for cash

    welllllll... it sold day before yesterday. i honestly did not think ANYONE would buy it for the asking price since i told the shop no haggling on price. i dropped by to see if they had anything on the shelf and noticed the rifle missing out of the consignment case.

    on the up side they DID have something interesting on the shelf. a compact M9A1 INOX

    this isnt a pic of the actual pistol its one i dug up off the net. its not even listed as a product on beretta's website yet

    wife gets the rest i get my initial money back so im not out a gun and the wife gets hors money. she was a LITTLE cranky when i told her i was taking a share but since she is sick its a good time to be in the nookie doghouse.

    i was ambivalant about selling and mostly hoping it wouldnt sell. the environment is right to get rid of a lower end gun. i feel only slightly guilty but not enough to lose sleep over.

    I understand that. I've decided that I will not ever sell, or trade one of my guns unless I absolutely had too.

    Jon , I have done the same thing I moved one of my ARs with a 20" colt target upper today , and it saddens me very deeply as I really like that rifle , great trigger and dead nutz accurate . Oh well the price was right and I have a new one to replace its spot :D

    .45 ACP and yes I will be picking it up tomorrow

    Good news guys! I think it's wise to offer up an AR now that you've been tempted to sell before. Odds are you'll upgrade it later in the year for less money (assuming the panic buying dies down). I think about it, too but only have three ARs and they're of good quality. No doubt I could double my money but could I replace them with similar quality... :confused:

    I feel the same way I could sell one of my lower end Ars and upgrade when all this settles down , but if they ban them how you going to buy one ? I'm afraid I won't be able to replace it . I have 5 Ar's so I guess I could risk it. But ... I'm too whimpy I guess to gamble

    My DPMS has been in the LGS for the last several days. It's a carbine upgraded with MOE furniture throughout, a Millet Red Dot, and a brand new M16 BCG. So basically, a $700 rifle upgraded to a $900-1K rifle. I really like it and had it set up just right for my needs. But it'll probably bring $1500-1800, so I started a new build to essentially replace it with an upgrade.

    Yesterday I secured a Noveske lower to complete the replacement. PSA/MI upper, Cerakoted M16 BCG, PSA/Magpul lower build kit, Magpul MBUS sights, Gunfighter CH, Vortex Strikefire red/green dot...with probably $300 left over to pay off my G20 when it arrives.

    This hysteria will get old quickly, but I have to admit it's been interesting getting paid to upgrade my gear in recent weeks.

    I'm really liking all this panic buying. I sold the Plum Crazy for a 400% return, sold another gun I wasn't really using for what I paid for it 8 years ago. The proceeds are going to a new Kahr PM9 that I will pick up later today.

    $3000 for the kriss isn't that bad. The ma compliant version goes for $2750 normally.

    That is a great looking pistol. I could not find it on the Beretta website either. If you dont mind me asking but what is the model number? Or is it just called a M9A1 compact. Thanks

    l really dont know yet they claim less than 2 degrees of muzzle rise , havent had it out yet , possibly this weekend but I have a aimpoint coming to go on the top of it so I would rather wait and use as little ammo as I need to to get it sighted in with since its so cheap and in short supply right now
