Once.

Still regret it.

Sold a DPMS stripped lower plus trigger group, for $425 during the past craziness.... don't regret it at all....

Did you line up at the store to buy .22LR and then resell for double the price too? ;)

I would hardly call a MWCA gun show a business model to begin with.

Hah! Nope! Had a real job that paid better!

You mean like a used Glock 19 Gen 3, bone stock, for $500?

Provenance is only of significant value if the person was famous, or to a relative.

A SAA that has provenance to Fred’s gun store in Baltimore in 1901 is no more valuable than any other 1st gen SAA. One that was sold to Buffalo Bill Cody is worth hundreds of thousands...

I mean, there’s a sucker born every minute - but I sure as hell wouldn’t pay anywhere near $500 for a G19 Gen 3.

So, my grandmother's old .22 must be worth a mint, then.

She was, after all, a relative...
