You have nice collection of old guns and in my opinion made a good decision of selling one old gun, because lots of new and advanced guns are coming these days and taking the place of old ones.

Wow!! It sounds like that you have a large and nice collection of guns. As I am not having much idea about guns, I am not getting the names fully but if it will be possible then post some images of your guns.

OPT, I have a PPK for trade but it isn't stainless, I bough it new in 1969 and have original box and invoice. I am looking to trade of buy a WWII German 22 single shot training rifle. My dad had one when I was a kid but it was stolen - very accurate.

Always wanted a PPK stainess 380,but a little pricy for me right now.Had a BYF 41 98 k all matching numbers years ago. Had it along with a couple other 22 rifles in a gun cabinet. Someone wanted them more that me.. That's why I believe in safes now.

Good collection by the way, I like M1903 Springfield rifles and M1 Garands—the legendary battle rifle of WWII.

I like M1903 Springfield rifles and M1 Garands—the legendary battle rifle of WWII which comes with hornady ammo. Nice collection by the way.

Jumbo... I have slowly added to my small collection. I started out with a Remington 700 SPS tactical with the full bull barrel. Added a decent3-12x44MM scope From weaver, a Medalist Bell and Carlson adjustable stock, trigger job etc. Sweet out to about 800 yards, Just added a Springfield armory M1A loaded, and have mounted the same scope to it and am getting ready to fire it for the first time at the NRA range at the HQ in the next couple weeks just to run some rounds through it. I have a Rugar SR-40 and S&W M&P Pro .40 cal handguns, and have been eyeing a new Kimber 1911 in .45. I think I'll quit there.... Have stayed away from AR's, only because of the hoopla that surrounds them. My son has a couple of them. Me, I like the classic lines of the older stuff. the M1A will shoot as well as anything out there, and is a .308 like my Remington. (I only want to stockpile one rifle caliber. As for Ammo hoarding as some call it, let's be honest here, the shortage was caused by the government buying up all the popular ammo to take it out of consumer's hands as a means of doing something since their attempt to overturn the 2nd amendment failed. that caused the panic. If you look at it, Ammo makes better investment than Gold and Silver. You can barter it, it never goes down in price, and demand is still very high. I have 5000 rnds of .40 cal (We Mrs DB and I practice regularly) and maintain 2500 .308 in various types, and I have considerable .22LR for trading locked away. I don't consider myself a prepper, but do feel it prudent to keep a decent supply of food, water and be prepared to hook up my toy hauler and roll if the need is there. Being close to DC kind of makes one nervous you know... I have 9 acres of prime hunting land (Secret location) with enough timber to last a lifetime... so I am ready if I need to bug out.
