Before I moved (and subsequently) I took a hard look at those things I was taking with me. I left many things behind, simply because I wasn’t using them and I’d no place to put them. And I didn’t want them gathering dust in some storage locker based on the mistaken idea I’d eventually be able to free them for use.
So, it’s been over six months, and I’m still unpacking and looking for a real or metaphorical shoe horn with which to insert the remaining boxes of books, gun stuff, electronic gizmos and wiring and other effluvia into my new digs.
And friend Bob made a suggestion. Part of what I’m ‘saving’ is a box containing assorted firearms stuff. Stuff I no longer use, as I no longer have said firearms. Holsters; ammunition; magazines, reloading stuff. (Before you start emailing me, I’m not selling anything that might have legal restrictions over the Internet!) And I’m left-handed.
I’m not selling the ammo, as while I am a capitalist, I don’t wish to inadvertently arm some miscreant. And it only increases in value. I might sell the holsters, although piecemeal over the ‘net is probably small return.
But, locally, I could sell magazines I’m no longer using! Empty magazines. At least until such time they become controlled or illegal. Backpage, here I come!
Hasn’t happened, yet. Like Congress, I’m a procrastinator…
Give me a couple weeks…
