I am.

I realized this after buying another gun today (an M1 carbine, yay!). I've never sold a gun. The thought of selling a gun triggers a visceral physical reaction not too different than someone scraping their nails on chalkboard. Anyone else relate?

Nope.

I have a few constants (AR, 9mm pistol of some sort), but other than that, I enjoy buying something, playing with it for a while, then selling it and getting something else.

I've only sold one gun, ever. A POS Ruger .270 that misfired too often.
Link Posted: 3/4/2006 7:09:06 PM EDT
Yep I confess. I buy and hoard ammo and guns. I sell one every now and then but just to provide funds for the next one I buy. My wife was getting pissed and I told her if I kicked the bucket she should be happy with all the guns and ammo she could sell.

Kudos for using hoard instead of horde

That's a pet peeve of mine, people seem to always use the words the wrong way around.

I never sell anything, so I guess I'm a hoarder.

I hoard my precious bodily fluids.

Since I got married, my wife appears to have no use for them anymore.

Thats not bad wanting to buy guns after guns. Whats sad is people who can't throw out newspapers and old magazines or people with 30 cats.

I wish I could hoard guns, or rather, I wish I did in the past. What I have now will never leave me. But when I think of the guns I sold in the past, to finance other guns or something else, it just makes me want to drink. Well, drink more, anyway.

Trade up.

I have never sold a gun either.

Yes, I'm a hoarder.

Only sold one, a Kel-Tec carbine...
Just didn't like it.
Bought and 870 Police with the cash from it.

I've bought and sold plenty of guns. I've purchased many simply because the deal was too good to pass up. Most of the time, I sell those, turn a tidy profit and buy something I want.

I have no problem selling a firearm other than an heirloom or keepsake. I own my guns, they don't own me.

I have a horde of minions. They will lay sword to anyone I deem. They are at my beck and call to pillage and hoard. If I want to dally then they will have gone and whored.

I am. Everytime I try to justify buying a gun to my girlfriend or my parents by saying, hell I can re sale it for for I put in it, they allways say "YOU WILL NEVER SELL A GUN!" which is true, I've never sold one, but it might happen one day.
Link Posted: 3/4/2006 9:16:56 PM EDT
Never sell a gun, always buy one when given the chance.
Link Posted: 3/4/2006 9:26:33 PM EDT
Never sell.

Keep adding new ones.

I am, I've sold two guns in my life, the first 228sig I bought, and a browning 280, regretted the hell out of selling both. I bought another 228, but no 280. I buy guns, parts, and accessories, I sell parts and accessories, somtimes. I can always come up with a reason why I may need to keep somthing, even if has sat on a shelf, for years. I have a few ARs, and if I finished building all the AR parts I have, I would have a bunch of them, same for pistols, I love them, and want one or two of each, and practicality has nothing to do with it. I always think if I get pulled over on the way to the range, I will be held for awhile, because they will think I just robbed a gun store. Luckily the owner of the range, is a SGT for the town its in, and that is the only town I have to go through to get there, and we are friends. Ammo also, if I go to Acadamy, I by more, if I need it or not.

My family dosen't sell guns. We just trade them back and forth. It is kinda like getting a new gun every once in a while.
Link Posted: 3/4/2006 10:43:56 PM EDT
I have a hard time even thinking about selling a gun. Well at least one that works.

I've sold some guns. I've regretted selling half of them.

I'm too poor to hoard
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 6:50:52 AM EDT
Yep, I must admit I do hoard ammo. I collect guns but I hoard ammo.

That's not true! He's like a Man Posessed! Every time I talk to him, he's changed out his entire set! Case in point: He has thousands of rounds he just found for calibres he doesn't own anymore!

Now if I can just get him to let me "hold" some of that ammo.... :)

I figure the more I have the more that I can arm. One man against a mass of zombies doesn't stand as good a chance!

I'm a hoarder with most of those weapons Safe Queens. I've got at least a case of ammo for each though. Just think, you could be the lucky guy that gets the K-98 if you're in Mi when the Zeds attack. I even have the bayonet and we all know that nothing puts fear into the hearts of Zeds like the "flash of Cold Steel"!

Yes, and to make matters worse, there is a Bushy A2, with 3 mags and case, in the paper for $595 today, but I talked a buddy into calling about it, if it happens to be any of you bama guys gun, I know a guy who wants it, sight unseen.
Link Posted: 3/5/2006 8:03:28 AM EDT
Yes.

I hoard AKs and AK mags as well as Glocks and Glock mags.

I would hoard ARs and AR mags as well...but, my hoarding is a function of the availibity of my discretionary income and I don't consider 4 ARs to be a "hoard" per se.
