After long consideration, and due to my wife's health, I have made the decision to quit buying/trading guns. I can no longer shoot long guns due to a back injury and I used to love to shoot competition rifle and clay target/sporting clays however those days are over. Presently I have the following: Remington BDL 700mm magnum w/Redfield 3x9 wide angle scope Browning Citori 12 gauge full/modified bought in 1973 Remington 541S .22 caliber engraved w/ Bill Ruger gold inlay 4x power scope, 40th anniversary Remington 870 magnum (ducks unlimited award for being committee for 10 yrs. used for home defense .38 Special airweight (my wife's which she has never shot) Remington .22 BDL pump action rifle Ruger GP100 4" barrel stainless Smith & Wesson Model 17-5 .22 cal. w/6" barrel, target trigger & hammer Ruger SR1911 full size Ruger SR1911 Commander Ruger SR1911 LW Commander Ruger SR1911 9mm Commander Ruger 50th Anniversary .22 cal Colt Commander 9mm all steel (vintage late 68-72) Since I can't shoot long guns I am undecided what to do with the as I have had them for so long and with many memories, so I may pass them on to my brother. I also have a couple of wall hangers, 1 dug up I found all rusted in a burned out farm house (believe it to be a Whitworth .25 cal but unrecognizable due to condition) old Flobert rifle .25 cal and an old .32 cal. These I will try to use for trading stock on something I probably won't use. That doesn't count all the knives I have that I collected over the last 50 years. I have decided to devote myself to my .45's and 9mm and when I can shoot 3 rounds inside of a silver dollar @25', then I might do some trading. I have had so many over the years that I regret selling or getting rid of that it makes me sick. At one time I collected target or heavy barrels including a Winchester 52c with Unertel scope that I sold last year. and a couple of antique firearms for wall hangers. I look at pricing today and it is outrageous. Should I decide to sell my long guns, I will first post them on our trading/selling forum allowing fellow shooters the first opportunity and they won't be whore housed priced like the new ones. If anyone has a silver dollar the size of a pie plate, I might be interested in trading:yahoo:I guess as you age your needs and priorities tend to change and it's gonna be time to downsize. At one time I had 8 cars/trucks and now down to 3 except for the 66 T-Bird I am semi restoring for resale. Tough decision but that time comes for all of us. Tommy P. S. Without this forum, I would truly be lost especially with all of my friends on here. BTW I do consider Mag, Savage, Buster, Jim, Handy, Shooter, Allen ,Gumpy and even VT (Bob) plus many more on my friends list. Gumpy is Santa Claus to me and many, many kids.
