I had the same thing happen a year or so back. I sold guns that took a lifetime to collect including a couple that were custom made for me. It broke my heart to see them go. There is one good thing that comes out of it though. You get to start collecting all over again. Anyway, don't lose heart or sleep, I assure you things will get better.

The most important things in life are not things. You did right by selling your things to support your family. But a man has to know his limitations. I can retire but having a great job and not wanting to get into a sell to survive mode I keep working.

I've been there as well. When I got out of school years ago, I had a month where my wife and I had, literally, no income, so we sold the most liquid things we had, viz., our guns, incl. my Super Blackhawk and my Mossberg. I only kept my Ruger .22-250. That was seventeen years ago and I only this year started rebuilding my gun collection, starting with the Hi-Point, and now I have a Mossberg and an AK, and I'm working on getting a Ruger 10-22.

So, take heart, things will get better. On the bright side, Hi-Points (and some others) look like they're going back down to pre-Obama price levels.

I'm a cook and I got laid of in November. Luckily I got an old job back being a server. The bad part is though, I've been offered a few cook jobs but I'm making more as a server than I did as a cook. So now I'm in cooking limbo.

Sorry to hear that Bro, I've been there myself. You do whatcha gotta do, and continue to march. I just started my collection back up a year ago. It will all come back around.

Good Luck
