Letting my 10s go

I have come on hard times and I am selling off my 10mms. I just don't go shooting anymore. I have had 1000 rounds of 10mm over the past 9 years and I still have 350 rounds of that left so I am shooting it less that 100 rounds a year with 4 10mms in the stable.

The GP100 left today, there was a gun show in town and some of that crowd ended up at the local gun store and the owner was looking out for me and found a buyer.

I'm sorry you have to let guns go. I've had to sell things during hard times and it isn't easy. I hope things get more stable for you. If you want another 10mm in the future I doubt Glock will stop making them.

Okay, I will say it. It was fun, but I don't know if it was worth the money I spent for what I gained. .357 magnum is a very good caliber and easy to get good ammo for.

I understand where you're coming from. I like the 10mm and loaded for it off and on for years, heck I even bought a Gen4 20 last year. I hardly ever shot it (or any of the 10mm's for that matter) and honestly I don't even shoot that much these days. When I do, it's mostly .40 and .45, so that coulpled along with other guns and projects I'm playing with, I didn't really see the 10mm giving me something I'm not already getting elsewhere, so I sold all my 10mm stuff a few months ago.

You must own a Ruger gp 100 or a BH in .357 to get in to Heaven,
and SS helps.

Thats why I have 21 including the 4 LW 357sig barrels.

Sorry to hear about your hard times, I hope you recover soom.

Sorry to hear. I had to sell my S&W 629 .44 Magnum, about 15 years ago, due to hard times. It really sucked.

Good luck,
AK

Sold my west German 229 once upon a time for rent money. My only pistol at the time. Should have kept the gun and lived on the streets. It was summer.

I never thought the entire gun was ever made in West Germany.

I thought the early P229s had West German frames. I thought all the slides and final assembly were done in the states. I could be wrong, however.

Sorry to hear that, Bullman. I've been there myself, but you're doing the right thing. When you get into a money crunch, the toys gotta go.


It sucks, but life happens. Little by little, I am coming back. My current collection of handguns is five...it used to be thirty!


Hang in there!

Any of you all looking for Smiths? I have a 1066 and a 1006 with adjustable sights. I guess I need to post them in the want ads.

They won't last long and they have also been bringing some great money on Gunbroker lately.

Sorry to hear that. But I agree with you. Since I don't hunt, my 9, 45, and 357 Glocks make great defense pieces. I hate having to buy new brass for reloading 10mm. With other calibers, I can pick up once fired for cheap. I also don't shoot the 10mm as well as others. My 10mm Glocks would be the first ones gone if it ever came down to it.

Of course you are correct. Fingers were outrunning my brain this morning get emotional thinking about the one that got away.

Yeah, I'm sure most of us regret selling certain guns. I know I do...

Bullman, you have my condolences for having to liquidate such treasured items...we will mourn with you and I will grieve, seeing I don't have funds available to help out in your time of need. Why couldn't you or even I win the lottery...

Hang in there.
You weren't the one that had that .38/40 Blackhawk with the 10mm conversion cylinder? ... or was that the GP100?

I would like to win the lottery, but I wonder sometimes if anyone really "wins" that thing.

It was the GP100, it sold pretty quick.

Bull,

I might know of a buyer for that 1006 if you promise not to tell my wife!

Seriously though...

I remember when I join GT and was looking at hernia surgery. I bought my G20, set it up to be mine. And went nuke with it. Had a door mat in my belly and a G20 ready to get wicked.

Nick, Shadow the Bull and others where there for me. I had Norma Retail ammo and Hot reloads that ruined my over priced want to be Colt worthless DE. My G20 has never failed me with a LW barrel in it. The OEM barrel has only be fired by Glock. And they must of been retards to think that was a good design.

Bull ,,, I'd sell my soul before I parted with my G20.

*Selling* a gun? I've *heard* of that concept, but figured it was just something that *progressives* do. Luckily, my wife hasn't figured out why she can no longer find space in my gun safe for all of her "important papers".
