I'm not talking about Collectors, or Antiques, or selling guns as a business.
I mean the average Joe, who buys guns, with the idea of using them or just having them, and keeping them thinking they will appreciate, and there will always be a market for them.
I've always thought, NO. They don't appreciate in value enough, even in 1/2 a lifetime, to be considered an investment. Therefore, investing is usually NOT a good reason to purchase a gun. And there is no reason not to sell a gun to finance another one to play with.
BUT, NOW, they have gone up so much, in, AT LEAST ASKING PRICE, and because of,( according to our friend Andy), the INTERNET, with Gunbrokers, GunsAmerica and the like, it has become a World Market.
Perhaps, it IS or WAS an INVESTMENT after all.
What are your thoughts on this important matter?
