Selling & taking a beating????

I am retired and income is low. I am not starving,yet! I retired a year and a half ago.
I had to have my roof shingled,last week. It was close to needing it done. so i had them put on. That hurt!!!!
Well,the next day my Blazer radiator starts leaking and it should have new belts and pulleys put on?
Then my deck on my lawn tractor thru a bearing! More darn money!!!!!!!
My question is this: How come when i buy stuff,like guns,i have to pay top dollar but if i go to sell one i have to take a heck of a loss?
I may have to sell a couple i don't use,soon.

Don't sell to dealers. They HAVE to pay wholesale to turn a profit..........which is their paycheck.

Re: Selling & taking a beating????

Sounds like a poem. I did a little editing........

I retired a year and a half ago.

I had to have my roof shingled last week. It was close to needing it done.

so i had them put a brand new roof on. That hurt!!!!

Well the next day my Blazer radiator starts leaking and it should have new belts and pulleys?

Then my deck on my lawn tractor thru a bearing! More darn money!!!!!!!

My question is this: How come when i buy stuff,like guns,i have to pay top dollar but if i go to sell one i have to take a heck of a loss?

All this stuff makes me wanna holler.

I may have to sell a couple i don't use soon.

Maybe I'll do it in June.

Re: Selling & taking a beating????

my large gun collection was mostly bought in the late 80's early 90's at cheap prices. So I can sell at a fair price and still make lots of cash.I went from 175+ to under 70. Upgrading to better or other guns.

Ya have to look for deals and act fast when buying.

Your spot I NEVER go back
My spot I expect the same
