I wanted to sell off some rifles or handguns and got them out and trying to decide which ones need to go
as I want to keep the calibers I like .243-.308-30-06 and .223 then I was thinking I have 2 of the Swedish mausers 6.5x55 and just like the scoped one best with the bent handle and drilled receiver best.

That brings the scope back farther like a regular day rifle.
I should keep the other one for parts. Or maybe trade the straight bolt for a bent one to someone and maybe etc etc.

6.5 creedmoor yea I do not care for that so much and sell it ..then thought I cut the barrel down and man I found a great load for it and shoots tight groups at 200 yards easy and the short barrel swings nicely and I have the good stash of 6.5 bullets.

Darn it how about the 40 S&W Hi-Point carbine and pistol.
EEEEHHHHH I made an ammo can full of ammo for those and my buddy also shoots 40.
And maybe when my grandson gets a bit older he may love plinking cans with that carbine.
Great starter rifle or the 30-06 or .308 with cast loads.

2 30-06 ATR rifles that shoot lights out. I just need one. I probably gift the other to my Daughter-in-law as she loved shooting it. She is 6 foot 200+ lb of tom boy.

On to the 12 gauges. Maybe I have too many I cycled the 2 pumps. Yea I need those maybe the grandson will need one.
I have a bolt JC Higgins 12 maybe that one can go.
Wait I have not even shot it and it is old and has a screw in the wood stock.. may not be reliable.

Looks like my weapons will not get thinned.
I kind of like them and some will make good gifts.

Not a thought in my head about getting rid of the 45ACP or 357 Magnums.

Do you guys get this way?
HAAAILLL NO!

I just have too much stuff.
I am not angry about anything just thinking if a guy was to bug out or if I had a choice of what gun to get a job done what would it be.

The recent Horse I had to put down with 1 very well placed shot made me open my eyes as to what rifle in a bad situation would I choose.
It was my 18" savage heavy barrel .308 that was chosen.

Not that I think I will ever need to bug out.

I do have way too much yard /shed stuff. I will have a guy sale soon.
Heck I even have 2 perfectly working boats and had 4 boats one time.
I like the 2 I have.

I think I have nearly 60 carburetors and had over 300 at one time.
Crazy.

I’m in the same situation. I have too much stuff and don’t really want to part with any of it. I think every day what it would take for me to make the move from my place here in TX to my place up there, and I already know I would have to have another barn built just for storage.
As far as selling guns, I have several I don’t shoot and probably never will, and I wouldn’t mind selling them but hate dealing with tire kickers and low ballers.
