    Well, not all of them. I've really been looking at what I've bought over these last years and have to say, I went stupid with my buying. The number I have isn't important, it's the fact I should have used the funds on my car restorations that I've been working on rather than what I have. Live and learn, not going to cry over spilled milk.

    So, besides the "tar-and-feather" approach, I really don't know what one's I should sell. I plan to keep 2-4 at the most, including projects I have in the works, so, what to sell?


    Nighthawk Enforcer
    Les Baer TRS
    SA Professional
    Wilson CQB
    Drake Gun Works Caspian
    Novak Custom Colt
    SA Custom Carry

    I don't think I'm going to stop at 1911's, might have to move a few other areas from my safe. But I think that will be much easier selling since I don't have any attachment to my basic pistols such as Glocks.


    Thoughts....besides I'm crazy?

    Honestly, if you're only going to keep 2-4 1911's, those should be the ones YOU enjoy the most. If it were me, I would sell all of those (except for maybe the Drake), and put the money into a few quality custom builds.

    I know you're on Harrisons list...I would also look at getting on Chucks, maybe HP too?

    I know, I'm just curious what others think...also gives me an idea of what might be easy to sell.

    No chances of spending the funds anywhere else, if I sell some it will be for non-firearm projects. I'm on JH's list, and it IS the last one for me.

    Will do, the TRS isn't in stock form though...it's had some extras added.

    I'd probably keep the Novak.

    Neither does a hammer or a screwdriver. Tools don't need character. They just need to work the way they were intended when called upon.

    Ill admit. Ive had similar considerations when I look at how much I have tied up in mine vs how much Ive made in stocks with that seed money. Honestly, I would say go for it. I would keep my favorite 1 or 2 and put the rest of that money to work.

    EXACTLY...I'm getting to the point where I only care about having a pistol that works and want to spend the most time training using that one pistol.


    I dunno, I think I know what I will sell now...have to see how much my new engine will run to see how many I need to sell.

    Im also there. After running my Glock 19 through that class. I still really like my DV builds though. My G19 just works, I can shoot it well under stress, and I can conceal it easily. What else is there a gun should do?

    I ask myself that question more and more, I can't think of anything significant for my use.

    Not all of my guns are tools either. Glocks are nasty.

    I'd sell that SA Pro first, to me. For a great price. ;)

    None taken. My username might say Glock in it, but I kinda know my way around a 1911 and I have "a few". :wink: I see you're new around here. :welcometo:
