greetings from PrepHole
any suggestions for a relatively modern sidearm that you have reason to believe will appreciate in value over the years? Just need a lil home defense piece that I may wake up in 15-20 years to notice I can sell for 3 or 4x as much and replace with a glock

Was thinking Wilson Combat's recently discontinued 1911, its a beautiful and classic piece but would like some input. Also a cheaper entry price wouldn't be bad. I think you have a sense for my taste with this suggestion

    Don't buy a gun expecting it to appreciate. Buy ammo instead. Ammo is way more volatile of a good since its constantly being used up and the first thing people grab when another Burn Loot Murder scenario kicks off is ammo for their existing guns. I suggest 9mm or 5.56 since those are the most commonly used rounds.

      Honestly, what said. Ammo is likely never gonna go down within our lifetimes, it's still very useful even if you don't want to sell it, and if it does go down, you can simply wait for the next political shitfit that kicks off and sell big.
      That's what some anons were doing during 2020. I recall one anon who posted some gigachad image and detailed his plans to sell all of his 5.56 ammo and then buy it all back cheaper during the "Trump slump" that would follow Trump's re-election. I kinda wonder how he's doing now.

    Get a 1911 that was carried into WW2, as more WW2 vets die from old age you can probably find their old stuff that was inherited on sale for cheaper than usual. Make sure its well maintained and authentic, or atleast invest into maintaining it if its not in pristine condition.

    Specialty pistols is what you should be looking for. One that actually comes to mind is the Husdon H9. They were $1000 when they released in 2019 and they've been slowly going up in price since the dumbasses failed. It's a unique piece that I honestly think will be a worthwhile collectors item in the future. Other than that anything from a war will only ever appreciate in value, especially foreign military guns. Find a really good condition US service 1911 and take good care of it, when it's 100 years old it's going to be worth a lot to someone if it's in great condition. They go for around $1000 to $2000 for the run of the mill examples.

    1911s are going to plummet in price in the coming years. Only homosexual fudds and boomers like them, and they'll all be dead in 20 years or less. The market for 1911s will subsequently be flooded with cheap 1911s being sold off by their children who are leftist homosexual zogbots that don't believe in guns.

    Buy something that will still appeal to the current gun crowd in 10-20 years. Basically any Beretta 92 is going to appreciate in value, but the higher end models especially. An M9A3/A4 would be a very good investment, especially if you found one in the black or OD Green (FDE is the most popular/common variant).

    You can buy new M9A4s for a little over $1k depending on where you're located.

      most my 20-something year old gun buddies are big on baretta pistols, that should probably tell me something. I like their design too. I'll consider this

      you two both have very valid points but I still need a reliable modern weapon around the house. I wont be taking it to the range but if someone breaks in its definitely getting used, I'd probably hesitate with a collectors item lol

        homie a 1911 from WW1 is still fundamentally the same weapon as a 1911 manufactured last year. The M2 Browning was first manufactured in 1933 and it is still in active use by the military with minimal changes to the original design. Barring serious design flaws, a well maintained gun will function as reliably as intended because if this shit breaks in combat then its a worthless gun.

        You want a revolver. No gun is an investment despite what you and your friends want to believe. It's a beanie baby market where sometimes you get lucky and other collectors fixate on one misprinted bear for a minute and create a small run on it, but on the whole there are so many stuffed animals they have no value besides the original buyer "knowing what he got" and being too stubborn to read the market.

      Just an absolutely terrible post from start to finish, wow/ A cerakoted M9A4 for over a grand, made by a company that can't stop itself from making "limited edition" models constantly. Honestly, this guy would have collected Beanie Babies if he was an adult in the 90s. I'm impressed and fascinated by the profound mis-calibration of your instincts, can you tell us some more opinions you hold strongly? Favorite movie?

    If you are buying guns for value and to protect your home just get a shotgun, pistols are kind of niche for both criteria. Shotguns have a long history of being value investment pieces in the firearm world along with big game rifles.

    Don't buy a gun as an investment and plan on using it for self defense. If you have to use it, it'll end up in the evidence storage and then "disappear"

    Milsurp 100%. WW2 video games and other media will always get new generations to want them. I'd get a USGI M1 Carbine or a modern production Inland MFG if you want an effective caliber and good appreciation.
    The M1 Carbine can fill your home defense role well and can also be used as a hunting gun with the correct loads. I would avoid getting the Auto Ordnance ones because I doubt copies will appreciate well and they are known to have problems. The biggest problem with all of the M1 Carbines are just the magazines. Get some good mags and test them. Also get gun grease in addition to CLP.

    If you want something smaller, then probably get a P226/P229 Legion. People still buy them for some reason and Sig will probably always be around for people to want it.

    There are basically none.
    Firearms like most durable goods tend to keep their value at around 75% of the purchase price, and are somewhat inflation proof, but only a very few become instant collectibles with return on investment, like the Hudson H9. Buy what you like, keep the original packaging, and sell/trade/pass them along when you want or need to but do not treat them as an investment

    If you want to buy a gun as an investment just buy war bonds.

    If you want something somewhat modern that's actually comparable in terms of capabilities with current production guns, your best bet are limited edition and discontinued models that are some Brownell's exclusive pink frame bullshit.
    Things like west German p226s that will only get more scarce and will always be more desirable that current Sig production ones, because even at their best they couldn't match the old SIGs. Glocks like the RTF2 frames will probably become more valuable over time, since that's the best frame and the clone community is after them to use them in CAG clones, Beretta also has a bunch of limited editions that are super valuable, like the millennium and what not.

      Agreed, an old, ideally West German, P226 and an RTF2 Glock are both great options that perfectly fit OP's request, I couldn't have answered the question better. I think P7's will probably end up appreciating a moronic amount, but they're not very nice to shoot (hence the prediction—I'd be very surprised if they were ever reissued).

    Any gun shitty enough to not sell well and get discontinued, but either not so shitty that it doesn't first develop a cult-like fanbase around it, or so shitty that it turns straight meme status.
