A few years back, I picked up a Ruger PC9 at Cabela's for around $400-$450 (don't remember exactly).
They had 2 at that time, and I've seen a few go through there since, I should have bought them all.
Looking on Gun Broker, it looks like they are starting to bring double or more what I paid for mine.
Anybody else have any guns that have gained in price since you bought them?

Not new style ones, but ...
Yugo SKS, near perfect, $138, now over $300
Multiple Mosin Nagants around $80, now $200
and the list goes on and on...

I bought quite a few Mosin's at lower prices and sold at a good bit higher. I see that a lot of people are trying to get more out of their Ruger P95's than what they ran new, since they stopped making them. But it would take a LOT for me to sell mine for sure!

Mosin 91/30s have went from sub 100 dollar guns to being almost 300 dollar guns with shipping and FFL fees included.... I have probably 10 or 15 of them so......

Also saw a Romanian PSL 7.62x54R go for 1400 on gunbroker today... one mag, sling and no scope.. I bought mine about 6 years ago with 5 mags, the mag pouch, scope, sling and accessories for about 700. Mags are worth 75 +or- each so I figure my gun is worth somewhere around 1800-1900 ish. That is probably more than I would have made in the same time frame on 700 worth of gold.

It would still take a lot for me to buy a gun today that I knew was half just a few years ago. But we all know I'm stingy and :stupid: I like guns, just not that much I guess. :dunno:

No, I bet you are rich. :thumb: Retirement money. My neighbor is counting on something similar. He collects old and unique Farmall tractors. Hi-crops, cotton pickers, rice cultivators, you name it. he has about 200 now.

I'm looking at my collection as a retirement fund/legacy to my wife... when I'm gone if she finds someone who will help her get rid of them without ripping her off she will have a very nice nest egg.

I did that myself. Down to one Mosin, one .50 blackpowder rifle, two AR's, one AK, my Ruger P95 and SCCY. Oh, and three .22 rifles, two I can't get rid of because the wife gave me one and I bought the old Marlin single shot using the excuse that it was "for the grandkids to learn on". Been contemplating on selling off the Marlin 60 squirrel stock, just can't get it as accurate as I know they are capable of, not sure what that deal is.

But then the wife has her AR and her three .22 pistols too :dunno:

OK, OK, this is a game you are not allowed to play here. :doublegun2: :hmmm: We all know that most of the earthquakes in Oklahoma are caused by the displacement of solid rock in Nebraska due to the weight of all the firearms you have at your farm. :thinkin: The general thinking is that if'n you were to try to move to another house, the earth would have to be stabilized for the train of Brinks armored trucks that would be necessary to move just a fraction of your collection, all in order to minimize the destruction likely to be caused to them poor folks down in Oklahoma due to the rumbling of the earth. :wow: :scared:

I'm keeping more than I'm selling, I think they will skyrocket in price when billary gets into office and that's when I will sell. I am probably pushing 150 to 175 in my personal pile o guns. Not even sure, need to sit down and count them.
