    Here is a list of what I have for the most part.
    If you had to give up a few wich ones and why?

    I need some capital, and my gf says no more w/o a safe.
    One of the mosins and the 925 are off limits. (First two)

    Marlin 925 .22mag
    Marlin 795
    Marlin 80e
    Sears ranger (marlin) 39a... Gotta find mags...
    Security 320
    995 classic
    Issc m22
    Ria m200
    Ruger p89dc
    I swear im missing one, but I made 10 either way

    I can't help you but I can tell you how I'd do it. Anything passed down to me from a family member I leave off limits unless my family is starving. then it comes down to which ones would be easily replaced at a later date for example I have a glock 17 and a keltec sub 2000 both worth about the same money used on the open market. I'd opt to sell the glock as its easily replaced at any gun shop and the s2k is harder to find.

    I am not sure if you are wanting to sell any of these, but if so, I may be interested in the:
    91/30 and T53. If so, pm me with info, price, pics, and payment options. Thanks!

    You seem to be a Marlin fanboy, which isn't a bad thing.

    I will concider it. I'm sorta partial to the 91/30. It's got Smith Sights and a rubber butt pad
    The t53 is rough like all Chinese rifles.

    If I can figure it out I will send pics. You have me at a disadvantage. I don't know what they are worth.

    Not sure I understand the exact point of your original post.

    Is your gf saying no more guns until you buy a safe?

    I understand that you need some capital, but wouldn't selling off a few guns mean that you will have fewer guns overall, so not in violation of gf's request?

    Have you come across a great deal on a rare find that you are needing to buy immediately, and therefore you have to liquidate a few firearms to afford?

    Is your gf demanding that you buy an actual gun safe, or is she aggreable to a locking cabinet?

    My first "safe" was a navy gym locker that I bolted to the wall in my garage and installed two lock hasps on. I think I kept like 12 or more rifles and several handguns in there. Perfectly safe from my sons prying hands. I picked it up at a government auction at a navy base cheap.

    When I eventually bought a purpose built gun safe the old gym locker became my ammo locker.

    Getting a new gf would hurt less.....

    The correct answer is found in desertrider's post.

    Just get the "safe", a locker like his is cheap, a Stack-on 14 gun cabinet is close to $100 or less on sale.

    If you just want to know which guns to get rid of first, the ISSC M22 is probably where I'd start.

    PM me and I will give you my email address to send pics to. I would be more interested in the T53 to be honest. Their prices can range anywhere from $125 to $185 depending on condition, bore shape, metal/wood shape, rust, matching numbers on reciever, bolt, mag, stock, butt plate, etc.

    ...maybe... need pix of the GF to give an honest answer ;)

    Hans, I know the Marlin 795 is easily replaceable, but they
    are SWEEET Shooters! :D I bet your GF will be fine with a
    Stack-On gun safe. It is a cheap answer, for the moment.

    Found this standing on the curb with a FREE sign! 7' tall, 32 inches wide, 18 inches deep, separate top compartment I can toss light stuff in... check the freebies on Craigslist too! This is double steel walls, some kind of drywall in between, weighs in at 300+ pounds...

    Yep, last one I bought was all matching numbers including the stock. Stock did have a piece mssing at the toe which doesnt affect shootin it. Paid $153 for it, but that was a year ago. Prices have risen since then.

    The safe is her idea. She wants a realish safe for more than guns, plus it's like 100 for the stack on unit and 250 for a realish safe

    Getting rid of the gf isn't going to help, we have been dating for a decade and have a house...

    Plus I begrudgingly agree. If I can't get it done in 10 guns, anothwler ten won't fix anything

    I was thinking the t53 and the issc, that would leave me with an open slot for an AR build... My ffl has a zastava m88a that I've wanted as well

    Too bad you didn't explain things better.

    You best get a safe because at a decade, she is not a gf anymore.

    She has become "One who must be obeyed."

    Once they legally own half your $hit, you're married. No silly document or church blessing needed.

    :rofl: Even though "Minn-Soda" does not have 'common law' marriage
    any more, they don't have it "any less" :D She'd still get half (or more)
    of your stuff, and it's a great idea for a safe, she's 200% correct in her
    reasoning, but don't tell her I said that :eek: Just get the GUN SAFE...
    A Real one, too, with a good fire rating. Documents, Cash/valuables,
    guns, and part of your ammo. She sounds pretty smart, actually,
    except the ultimatum part, "doggie" made a good observation :D

    Hey, I read my posts to my wife.

    She agreed.....with the part about:

    "She who must be obeyed."

    It's only taken me 40 years to mostly learn that....
