This is one of my concerns!

Conversely, I may not be able to sell/transfer it in the future.

I do know that I would steer clear of corporate bonds! Spreads are widening out significantly and many strategists expect them to widen out through 2019.

Opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one and they usually stink. �� Who knows?

We can talk offline about the economy if youíd like, but letís keep the thread about my REPR. Thanks.

By the way, that book is pre-financial crisis when people thought AAA rated MBS was almost as safe as US Treasuries. LOL! My friend and I had the book out to laugh about what we were taught before the crisis.
Wow....You definitely know your stuff. I was being a little tongue in cheek. Not every day you see a couple nice looking rifles next to a bond strategy book.

Personally I wouldn't sell it. Guns are way cooler than money, and you can always just save for that Nighthawk. The REPR is a pretty incredible rifle, I've always loved them. You might some day have time to get into long range shooting, and you'll have to spend even more to try to get back to this set up you already have. The chances of you getting back every dollar you spent are much lower than the chances of you shooting this and not liking it.

My opinion is that LWRC rifles are more sizzle than steak. So yeah, if you can get out of that even, Do It.

I respectfully disagree on LWRC in general. My LWRC IC-Enhanced is by far my favorite AR that Iíve ever owned, which includes DD, Noveske, Colt, and BCM. The REPR, though it is a work of art, I cannot comment yet. For the price, you may well be right!

I’ve decided to keep it for now. Hopefully I can test it out this summer. Thanks, everyone!

BTW - For those interested in bonds, the 10 yr. US Treasury rallied 12+ (12.5) ticks today to yield 2.93%. I attribute much of the rally to a short squeeze, but opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one and they usually stink.

Good choice. If you don't need the money and aren't having complete buyers remorse then it's a keeper.

I shot as many ARs as I could before deciding on an LWRC. Other than building your own perfect rifle, LWRC makes it as perfect as you can get. Not to mention phenomenal customer service I have had from them.
