Glad to hear that you're leaning towards keeping it. Like I said, the sentiment that you lack will not be a problem for your son(s) when they receive them someday from their dad.

As far as your wife "not liking" you buying guns you don't need, just remember that next time she buys another pair of shoes she doesn't need.. Just be subtle, as being too overt will certainly land you in the doghouse.

All I'll say is that you did ask what you could get for it.
I gave you the best way to get the most if you wanted to sell it.
Keep it if you wish, it will only go up in value.
At my age, I am thinking of selling some of the firearms I have. No one to really pass them on to that would value them as much as I do.

Definitely appreciate the input STCM... I'll keep that option on the back burner if I ever commit to the sale.

I'm in the same boat Nick.

After a lot of thought, there are a few guns I have that I will leave to specific people, but since I don't want to sell my other guns, I've decided to leave them to the NRA and a couple other firearms rights organizations.

I've not contributed to such organizations as much as I'd like and having limited resources to fall back on, have kept my most valuable guns in case that rainy day comes. When my time comes, what I have in the way of guns will benefit the fight to help future generations enjoy their guns as well.

Just throwing that thought out as an idea...

Anyone who wants can leave their guns to me .

True enough, I've really got no one to gift mine to when the time comes either. Hmm... Maybe someone needs to start a non-profit to match needy families with aspiring young hunters/ marksmen (markswomen?, markspeople?) with those willing to donate firearms.

I have been slowly been investing in brass knuckle
knives so they can all fight it out when I am gone
considering they just want them to sell.......
Wish it we otherwise....
I got a few unfired and wondering who the hell I am
saving those for ???

So I decided government has the answer cause they are
much smarter than me and it appear they would just
kick the can down the road if in a similar
circumstance to those who come after them.....


On a serious note our favorite nephew and our oldest
Grandson choose Marijuana over their gun rights so
medical or not they loose out....
Sad, really sad......
