Well, maybe not all of them. You may only keep one rifle, handgun, and shotgun.

Jeez...tough.



I'm one of those "never sell a firearm guys."  




Maybe sell them to my family or friends with the understanding that in the future I could buy them back.

yes

i would sell

if i could keep one of each that you mentioned

and i would keep a cheaper pistol and shotgun.  
i would still want to keep one quality rifle though

absolutely.  I can buy back guns.

No.   You don't have to lose everything in a bankruptcy, anyway, and besides, some items can be tucked away safely and not found

when auditors inventory your stuff.



In an absolute last resort situation,  I'd  probably [COC VIOLATION].

I'd sell other things instead, like my ATV, utility trailers, investments, etc.

Heirlooms or HD weapons? No way, but guns are disposable when compared to my financial well being.





Once back on your feet, buy 'em back. The country is awash with arms, they're not going anywhere. You might pay more than you like in a few years or whenever, but you CAN buy it all back.



During the '94 ban, guess what? You could buy anything, even pre-89 imports. You just paid a little more.



Again, guns aren't going anywhere.

Of course I would sell. Firearms are an investment and as such, sometimes investments need to be liquidated.

Of course, I pay my debts.


Link Posted: 7/22/2010 6:52:16 PM EDT

Of course. I've sold quite a few over the years to pay off assorted debts.

It's also the only time I can actually get anyone to buy anything. When I don't need the money I'm one of those idiots that thinks mine are worth at least as much as they were new

No. If I'm filing bankruptcy then its for medical bills that mexicans dont pay anyway. I dont borrow money so medical bills are the only theoretic way I could end up in that situation. Obongo wont let that happen anyway.

There's lots of stuff I'd sell first, but many guns would go to the EE if I were really that bad off.

fuck it, rack up all credit cards for a few more months then file bk. this way you get to keep everything. Ca allows $25,000 in items you can keep or however they word it.

Dont declare you own any firearms. From what I understand the forms are just that forms..No one comes into your house to verify what is owned.. Simple answer only excess firearms.. Keep atleast 2 pistols, 2 ar's and 2 shotguns. If you are involved in a shooting that firearm will be seized for a short time leaving you with no pistol if a pistol was used.

A man who would sell his firearms for a little financial security deserves neither his firearms nor financial security.  I think Ben Franklin said that!

I never though i would sell guns.

Then i got laid off, and soon had to decide between keeping all my guns or living in my car. Honestly, not a hard decision but i hope i never have to think about it again

not unless I got double what they were worth, in witch case I would buy them again, and have money.. Other wise no... Ill rake leafs, shovel snow clean your gutters, maybe even whore my self out to fat chicks before I sell a gun...

Don't have any heirloom firearms so I don't need to worry about that.

Yes, my personal integrity and the trust my lender put in me to loan me money means more to me than my guns. I can replace the guns in time. You may never regain trust and integrity once you squander it away. I was brought up in a time when a man's word and commitments actually meant something. I know that don't mean a thing to many folks these days but it's a poor reflection on them IMHO.

Seems to me that if you were to the point of filing bankruptcy, you'd have probably sold off at least some of your guns before getting to that point.  I don't think selling off what you still had would make a difference.

I would have no problem selling them except for what you said, one shotgun, one pistol, and a rifle. To decide which ones got the boot would be hard. A lot of the guns I have have been handed down to me, those might be excused, but the rest would be gone.

derp

the trust your lender puts in you is the APR they charge you for your loan. The APR figures in the chances you will be delinquent on your payments.

There is truth in that I guess but when I got my last loan for the home I built I got it from the same banker I got my 1st car loan from. Good guy from a conservative lender, you know the kind that required a down payment. In the recent upheaval they were the only ones with capital on hand in my area to keep lending to folks such as myself. The others with lackluster credit went wanting. If one made poor borrowing decisions who is to blame for that? Your fault, my fault, nobody's fault if you took out a loan you are the responsible party to re-pay it...No excuse allowed.
