What firearms did you once love but no longer want? Perhaps items that have lost value or interest but for which no good sale or trading means exist.
For myself I have the following that I no longer have use: 1) Walther PPQ 22LR (after 10,000 rounds I am tired of it); 2: HK P30LS (other handguns have surpased it); 3) Ruger SR22; 4) CZ Scorpion EVO3 S1 (with that massive bolt I never warmed up to it).
What needs to be culled in your armory?

Uh, As far as I can remember I sold exactly two things in 40 years. PTR91 as it sucked, and mini30 as a barn was too small a target. Exactly why anyone would get rid of HK's, CZ's and Beretta's I would be at a loss to explain.

All my 3rd generation S&W automatics. I loved those things and simply couldn't handle S&W discontinuing the entire line.
I now own and like two M&Ps, even carry the Shield 9, but would have rather had S&W keep the 3rd Gen line, or introduce a 4th Gen improved line. Something about dumping what was the signature S&W line-up to essentially copy Glock makes me feel icky. I'm not sure it worked out for S&W.

I had a Glock 23. I liked it ok. At the time I decided to go 100% DA revolver, so I sold the Glock as it was my only semi-auto at the time. Also, while I wouldn't call it a "hard kicker" it was a little snappier than I would've liked for a gun that size (which is funny because an airweight snub was my primary carry gun for several years). Plus I got slide bite every time I went to the range. So off it went.
Funny thing is I now have more semi-autos than revolvers. *shrug* I currently have no interest in selling any of the guns I have now, and am actually hoping to expand it somewhat this year.

I'm down to 3 SIGs, a 10/22, and an AR-15. I've had plenty of HKs, Glocks, S&Ws, Rugers, SIGs, etc come and go. It'll be nice to be able to focus on a few staples of the collection. I will admit that a pistol caliber carbine is on my short list.

Most everything except a couple of Glocks. I had a couple of HKs, 3rd Gen Smiths, a P239, 220, (3) 226s. The only thing that I might be interested in is a SAO 226 Legion, G43x/48. I pretty much converted my pistols to rifles. Optics are the new interest to me.

Only one gun I would sell: Springfield XDs9. It is my my first, only, and last polymer striker-fired pistol. It never failed to go bang, but the slide bite is ridiculous and it just doesn't work well enough for me to justify keeping.
