What is the longest you have ever kept a gun?
While I buy and sell my fair share, I do have a few that Ive had since I was a kid.
Recently, I have kept some for 6-7 years before. One of my PS90s was the longest one I had, more than likely.
In the 1990s into early 2000s, I had a Glock 26 for like 8 years. But, I hated that gun. At the time, it was the only one with that kind of finish that was fairly rust proof. I bought a Walther P99 compact (and sold the Glock) after I discovered it also had a tennifer finish.
Right now, none of the items I have are THAT old. My Shield is my oldest gun right now.
My family was not really into guns and never took me shooting. I just bought my first handgun on my own at age 21 - it was a Glock 17 that was literally a lemon, and would never work right. But, I knew that was not typical for Glocks - I've had others afterwards.
Obviously, out of any brand, I've owned more Berettas over anything else. About 1/3 of the guns I have owned have been a Beretta of some make or model. Right now, almost 1/2 of what I own are Berettas of some sort.
I don't expect to be after anymore 1911s - hopefully I just never see something I HAVE to have that would make me want to sell them. I love 1911s, but the DA/SA Beretta platform will always be my favorite.
