To sell or not to sell

Recommended Posts

I am somewhat torn whether or not to sell my 96A1. I am not crazy about the .40, maybe because i can't shoot it well, i am much better with a .45 and am considering selling the 96A1 and getting a USP45 Tactical (i already have a USP45). But for some weird reason i can't bring myself to sell it, i don't know why.

I understand your feelings regarding the 96A1. I  bought one about 1.5 years ago and I seem to have "fallen out of love" with the gun. But I can't explain why! I shoot it as well as any of my other pistols, never had any malfunctions with it and I still think it is a sexy looking pistol and is mechanically interesting.  It ain't the .40 caliber...I absolutely love my Sig P229 and shoot the Sig 10X more then the Beretta. When its time to go to the range, the 96A1 almost never makes it into my range bag.

The only reason I have sold any firearms was temporary money necessity - and I have regretted each one since.

 

Unless you really really hate something you bought, or really need the money, it's my opinion to never sell them, just buy a new whatever you want.

 

 

I have only sold a few of my many purchases but miss each one in their own way.

I have been looking to sell my M&P40c recently, was bored with it, and was looking to raise funds to buy a range gun.... But after failing to find a suitable buyer and price, I brought it today to Howell Gun Works to get it Cerakoted. Hopefully the new look will help out with my bordum.

I am going to point out the obvious here but if the thought of selling it pains you then don't do it. Many guys have sold one gun to buy another and live to regret it.

 

If you want a new toy just save up the coin to buy it, live frivolously for awhile or pick up a few extra shifts at work so you don't have to sell one to finance a new one.

The issue is not entirely financial, that's only part of it. I just don't like the .40 and want to sell it but am conflicted about selling, i don't know why, i can't explain it. I have decided to sell it, it just pains me to do so.

I have learned from all the old timers that taught me to shoot. everyone of them has at least 1 story about the gun that they sold and regretted it later. So I don't sell any guns I just save up and buy what I want when I can afford it. The only gun I have sold was an AR lower and the only reason I did so is because I already have 2 complete ARs.

    • I have a case of Federal Premium LE ammo 180gr Hydra-Shok JHP However I'm in North Jersey in 07652.
    • We get heritage pork here, it’s a bit darker and more marbled than the pork we used to buy in NJ.    The loins came out perfect, nice and moist, aMd very flavorful!  I think I like that rub I showed a few posts back better than anything else I’ve made or bought. Just the right amount of spice.  Like brisket, I let the loins rest, wrapped in foil and a towel, sitting in an empty cooler. They sat for about 2 hours. This is key for retaining moisture.    Brisket is at 170°, sitting at the stall. I’m not going to Texas crutch this one, I’m going to let it work through it all on its own. 
    • Has anyone any news on buying ammunition since the new package of laws were signed by Murphy? I use a lot from online purchases that used to require just the FID sent with an order. Are local dealers changing the routine yet?
    • Shooters Sporting Center Facebook posting: STARTING TUESDAY MORNING YOU CAN CALL THE STORE TO BOOK A CLASS. THIS 1 HOUR COURSE IS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY! YOU MUST BE AN EXPERIENCED SHOOTER TO REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS! This is not a training course! $90 Plus Tax Non-Refundable Fee! You will not be refunded if you do not pass! Please come prepared with the following: •Firearm/s you wish to carry (Must be .380 or Larger) Semi-autos preferred- Revolvers will require a speed loader •100 Rounds of ammunition •At least 2 magazines •Drivers License and Firearm’s ID card EYES & EARS required as well, just me adding a reminder.
    • Just found this on GFH: This is not a beginner course! You will be required to demonstrate safety, familiarity, and accuracy. It is pass or fail. – No holster needed – All shooting from the ready position – 50 rounds per firearm – FBI Q target – 24 rounds at 7 yards – 14 rounds at 10 yards – 6 rounds at 15 yards – 6 rounds at 25 yards For a total of 50 rounds. Must hit at least 40 rounds out of 50 (80%)... Only 6 rounds at 25 yards makes this pretty easy for folks who have been shooting for many years...But as noted by another poster, there doesn't seem to be common standards across all ranges. Still, I will practice this (routine) with my 9MM PPQ. I have a 1/2 body type target from Wilson with a 7" circle etched on the body. Later I'll qual with my 45. My question I need help with, beside the actual shooting qual, are we also (required) to take some classroom training course? You know, the type that might discuss the use of deadly force under the law? I don't need to take this because I know the laws, just wondering if I (have) to take this and submit a certificate with the application?
