An Introduction To Becoming A Gun Collector

The majority of those who become gun collectors begin simply by getting their first gun. If they were lucky enough to grow up in a family that regularly hunts, or in rural areas where target shooting is possible, then they likely got their first gun as a gift. Very often a child's first gun will be a .22 rifle or a shotgun.  Many children feel that when they got their first gun it was the first time that they were recognized by their parents as becoming an adult.

Those who did not receive a gun as a gift when they were children may have purchased their first pistol or revolver to protect themselves. Still, others may have gotten involved with using their first gun by being exposed to the sport of shooting. In addition to the ways covered that many come to own their first gun there are still others such as an heirloom that was passed down through the generations or even just the love of a particular movie such as a John Wayne movie or others, and the person develops a passion for the gun used in that movie. Finally, some will simply choose to buy their first gun just because they like the idea of having one.

Our Guide To Centerfire Vs. Rimfire Ammunition 

Anybody who is familiar with firearms will be able to tell you: there are tons of different types of ammunition. If you go into most local gun shops or sporting goods stores you will find a massive variety of ammo for sale in various calibers, which range from small bore plinking rounds up to massive .50-caliber long-range ammunition, and tons of shotguns, rifles, pistols and much more. 

Despite the practically endless variety of rounds that are available, almost all of them fall into one of the two major types of ammunition: centerfire or rimfire.  Those two types of ammunition are named based on how their primer ignition system operates. 

Every round of ammunition, whether it is centerfire or rimfire, is called a cartridge.  There are four parts on every common cartridge - the projectile or bullet, some type of propellant, primer, and case.  Sometimes the word "bullet" is used mistakenly instead of "cartridge," however that refers to just the projectile, instead of the entire assembly.

Conclusion to the Finer Points of Gun Collecting

If interest in the make, model, and conditions of a firearm are taking a back seat there seem to be a renewed interest in artistic value as well as the rarity and history of guns for sale.

When talking about rare guns, it is important to bear in mind the maxim “just because a gun is rare doesn’t make it valuable, but only if there is significant interest. There may only be about 5 examples of a particular gun left, but the market is not yet saturated unless at least three people want these guns.  

Nevertheless, there has been considerable interest in cornering specific variations of pieces within a certain collecting field. There has been a sudden revival of the philosophy of collecting a set of pieces of a specific model each with a different set of variations. As you can imagine the rarer the variation the more impressive the collection. In some of the new collecting fields, when a research is published about a rare variation a sudden interest in these variations often ensues.

Introduction To The Finer Points Of Gun Collecting

When it comes to the elements that typically factor into a collectible gun's value and appeal to aficionados, a weapon's make, model, rarity, condition, history and art tend to be paramount. Among these categories, however, not everyone agrees as to their order of importance.

Many collectors begin their assessment process by considering the make and model of a particular gun. This is because these factors are essential to those who collect only certain types of specimens.

In this realm, a manufacturer's reputation for quality will be key, historical instances in which the gun made was used and the brand's cache. The last of these can be difficult to measure, but it is certainly true that particular guns have the unique ability to capture the imagination of collectors in a way that others cannot, due to past lore associated with them. Colt Single Action Army revolvers were long such a weapon.
