It's obvious to me why you don't sell any of them. You don't have enough!
The look from a lady that just caught someone red handed.....
yeah, it was kinda hard to tell her I’d had that forever...:: lol
TR....... You are my hero!
Don't think too highly - those safes and their contents have cost me more'n a coupla baubles for m'lady's arm/fingers!
Thats awsome, hard to say what I like best all the guns or the wife locked out of the room with a look like she was just put on a need to know basis as far as the gun were concerned . LOL
Rock on brother you look like you got your priorities straight
Guns are tools, not investments.
If you want an fantastic experience slinging lead, buy a high end 1911.
If you want to grow your money, buy the S&P500.
The semi customs from the big 5 will not appreciate because they are not rare or all that limited. Every year all the smiths at these 5 shops churn out new guns and design new models to entice us to add just one more to the safe. There is no scarcity factor creating appreciation unlike say pre '64 Winchesters or original Colt Pythons. Hence the reason you see ballpark $4000 msrp semi-customs selling for $3000 (or less) in new or like new condition in the classifieds. If you miss one, another just like (or very close to it) is being built and will come up for sale soon maybe with a slight tweak like DLC coating so it will be even more enticing. Its a never ending cycle to get 1911 addicts to take one more "hit".
The full on customs from Yost, Burton etc. will hold their value better due to their reputation and the inherent limited production of a one man shop.
Neither colt pythons nor pre 64 winchesters are scarce. There are probably more of each out there then the big 5 will ever build semi customs.
Perceived scarcity maybe. But there is nothing truly rare about either.
I see your point. Perhaps I should have stated there is a fixed quantity that can never increase and in fact decreases a little over time as guns are shot out, or lost in boating accidents.
