Not so sure Hugh Grant would agree. Apparently the price for "Divine" was better. Or maybe it wasn't the price that was better.

In Sep of 2003, I we paid $9,500. for a W/Hurley, that was made in 1977. ....I came on here crying about the price, but the great, well informed guys like full/auto45, chopper 45, john,John jr, Walter, etc, put my mind at rest, and assured me it was a "ok" price.........Looking back, I'm of course glad we did it.......Thanks guys.........Bob Hurley (jw)

As happy as I am that my hobby may pay for itself someday I think this site can do a great service by reminding folks of what the "fair" market value should be.
I think Elizabeth Hurley will depreciate faster in the current environment then all out Westies.

then all you will be able to afford is nothing.....
since if you sell it after you paid 10 to 12 grand or whatever..you won't be able to afford to replace it.or find another guy willing to pay $25,000.00 when you reallly need to sell it..fuzzy logic!
as i'm sure we don't have too many member's here that can afford $50,000.00 for one colt gun...i sure can't afford it anymore...to have one safe queen you can't shoot..or much less handle...
however $50,000.00 on maybe ten gun's you can handle and shoot when you want to sounds much more fun.
funny thing how that's changed in just ten short year's...
blasted away with a mg-42 now the mudder is too ritzy to blast...might as well have a cheeeeep!! replica on the wall now..
yep that's it..........live gun's.."real deal unshootable safe queen's" R.D.U.S.Q.'S
i like it.....how many do you own???and whats in the wallet??wink! take care,ron

I shoot it only a few time a year, otherwise it sits in the safe. I often ask myself if I should sell. When does this hobby become a rich man'd game. When is it that the prices become to high to feel right shooting the Thompson. Objects were made to be used, (not obused) if you don't feel you can shot a $12 or $20K Thompson why own it?
Be it a West Hurley or Elizabeth Hurley they were made to be enjoyed.

now i hear all these crazy price's.....let me tell you this the avergage guy ain't shootin his stuff....sure some on the board that bought the one's a few year's back blast away i'm sure...wes hurley's military model's.... let me hear the one's who bought the colt's for $30,000.00 plus chime in.............
because even tho they may have a few more buck's now above the so-called above average guy.
they don't want to put that spensive $2,000.00 scratch in it.or blow a $1,200.00 barrel out.or mar up the wood...or wear on the top or grip heel.....or comp if ac.model...
they are all safe queen's...or R.D.U.S.Q.'S
yep not many even shooting the m1-d and m1-c garands anymore...
or those vintage original colt 1911 model's...and luger's...now i'm really having a chuckle...and it's not the sugar coated one!!
yep all looker's now.....and many year's ago..some had been range blaster's..i remember one guy from n.y.at knob creek....took the 1921ac every year....paid around $2,000.00 for it....when it hit the $15,000.00 resale peak....
it stayed in the safe.SAD!!
with the class three madness.it will continue...why should the government ever worry.
they are all locked up..oiled down,and wrapped up...
we cannot afford to use them..take care,ron
p.s. new house is good.in the word's of myron cohen "everybodies gotta be someplace"

|QUOTE (Bill in VA @ Dec 17 2004, 04:31 PM)|
|I dunno. For me, cost isn't a consideration in regards to shootability. Unless I knew for a fact that a particularly rare/valuable gun that I owned was indeed unfired, NIB I'd shoot it. If it was unfired/NIB I'd probably sell it to buy one I could feel comfortable shooting. The only guns I own that I don't shoot are the ones that I can't find ammo for (like my Type 14 Nambu.) Even then, I have shot them all at least once.|
Bill in VA, I agree. I believe it was Ralph Shattuck, of Ralph Shattuck's Lugers, who once said (convincingly), "If someone tells you a gun is unfired, it ain't!" Regards, Walter
