    Numerous people over the years have accused me of being obsessively detailed when cleaning my firearms after using them. I remember one person commenting that I treat them like "museum pieces". They can't understand why I take extremely good care of my firearms. For me they are valuable assets that I do not take for granted. Also I grew up in a family with very little money so I take very good care of everything that I own.

    You’ll regret selling your guns.
    Yet those same people thrive on buying from the people selling.

    $1500 in 1963 is worth almost $12,500 today’s dollars. Unless you invested the $1500 at 3% compounded interest. In which case you’d be sobbing.

    Then end the ad with "no low ballers".

    That means next for me. They probably dont want to sell and I wont waste my time on ads saying no lowballers.

    Ever heard of a concept called counter offer and it's worth what someone will pay.

    I don't think dad paid more than $200 new. But I am not sure.

    Taking fully apart a Ruger MK II pistol and realizing that without YouTube it would have never been reassembled...

    After the exercise you realize that after 30 years and thousands of rounds, none of the difficult to reinstall parts were in need of any attention, or cleaning. ;)

    They made their choice. And they chose poorly.

    People who ask for advice, then completely ignore it, or say "well i just got the thing you told me not to get"

    People who will defend poor choices to the death, particularly holsters

    There's always "that guy" who makes everyone else look smart.
