GUN Guns as an investment?

Discussion in 'On Topic' started by Jimmy Jockstrap, Nov 17, 2006.

  1. Ive read this idea somewhere.

    With illegal immigration,race riots,jihads,etc. rising, civilian guns are going to inevitably become more valuable as the crime rate gets worse and the gun grabbers get worse.

    Also the idea was to buy guns that will be banned sooner like semi/automatics, BIG BLACK MEAN LOOKING guns like M16 or whatever that stereotypical pistol grip USA military rifle look is. I suppose pocket pistols as well. discuss.

    Bad investment.

    As new & better guns come on the market, old style guns tend to decrease in value.
    Look at Marlins, their used prices have risen much slower than inflation rates.

    Only occasionally do old guns increase in value faster than inflation, Colt SAA's and right now full-auto wepaons, but only because no more are allowed to be registered or made.

    And even this can go wrong, if full-auto guns were totally banned, you would be out your investment. Or if more full-auto weapons were allowed to be created, then your registered full-auto would decrease in value by 90%.

    This is not entirely true. I bought an M1 Garand and 1903 Springfield not really as an investment but just to collect. Their values undoubtedly shoot up ten fold once CMP runs out of them in the next few years.
