    Default Bored With A Gun - Sell or Wait It Out?

    I don't have any interest in keeping a huge collection of firearms. Having said that, I'm bored with my GP100 revolver. I did a trigger job on it which turned out great, replaced the front sight with a green fiber optic insert but don't really have any interest in shooting it anymore. When you get this level of bored with a gun, do you put it away for a while or just get rid of it? The reason I don't want to keep buying more and more is because it's a real pain in the dick to pack magazines, speedloaders and ammunition for multiple guns. I don't want to have a bunch of guns I don't shoot. Thoughts?

    I've sold too many that I later regretted getting rid of. I keep most everything. If it's something redundant then I may consider it but my general rule now is to keep everything. If I were you I would hold on to it for at least a few years, if you still have no interest then get rid of it.

    I have stored some of my wealth in firearms, instead of stock market or currency or real-estate.
    If the SHTF, I've got currency.
    If not, I have inflation-resistant durable goods.
    My kids/grandkids can inherit, if I have not yet traded them away for something else.

    You can offer it up for trades.

    My rule of thumb is if I haven't shot a gun in a year, it's time to sell

    My boring guns are in the back of the safe, then one day I feel like shooting particular boring gun so I dig it out and shoot it.

    I never sell a gun because it bores me, i sell it because either I don't like it or it doesn't shoot up to my expectations or both.

    Right now all my 22's and any non SBR gun bores me, but I won't sell them because one day soon I'll regain interest in them.

    I sell nothing. It costs me nothing to stick it in the safe. I don't need money to fund other guns or projects. They sit and I take them out when I feel like it.

    Don't understand being bored with a firearm. Perhaps you need to kick this down to the lounge and get some professional advice.
    Actually I loathe letting a firearm go unless I have a definitive reason. Lost a few in my younger days I wish I still had. I'd put it away for awhile.
    It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

    I am in this boat. I have a tendency to get rid of things and then months down the road, I realize that it was a mistake. I would hold onto it unless you need cash or get a really good trade offer for something you want more
