I never thought to shoot pennies. I don't imagine they'd go very fast or far, it was a very simple and relatively weak mechanism.

That's pretty much what I said; in addition to sorting out my departed uncle's vast collection for her, I'd gladly enter into an illegal 20 year span of indentured servitude. Realistically, I'd offer her what I can, but would most definitely not wish to take advantage of her or the situation.

I have another aunt... a woman who, while I was the live-in caretaker for my grandfather, stole his war trophies, issued equipment, and my loving brand-new bike*. She also stole my father's rifles back in the '60s when he was in Basic Training. I'd steal anything from her.

The worst part is that she has no business sense and thinks that yard sales are the ticket to financial gain. She earlier took a bunch of collectible figurines which belonged to my grandmother*. While they were, at a liberal minimum, worth $150+ each, she sold them for mere dollars. I have repeatedly asked my mother to intervene so that she does not sell my grandfather's stuff from Iwo Jima, the Aleutians, or Japan**.

*She waited until she knew I was out of town

**While it is embarrassing, in my family, I don't have the clout to make demands in this case. Issues are dealt within specific generations. For stuff like that, it's like the military: if you want to see change, harass your superior until poo poo gets taken care of.

That's some rareish model. But an all matching never dewatted bring-back in good condition is easily 15K. Still I'm with everyone else here to do whatever it takes to keep that gun in the family and in the hands of someone who will cherish and shoot it.

E: Assuming you don't have ~15k in the bank this is what I would do. Admittedly I'm crazy for subguns. Look at your guns and decide what can be replaced with relative ease. If there is anything that doesn't have some special meaning or would be extremely hard to replace sell it. And by the way, judging from the wacky obscure guns people find here, basically ANY gun is replaceable. Anyway sell it all. Sell all your silly gear and tactical bs and accessories if you are into that thing. Keep one gun for HD/CCW if you currently have one. Hopefully this will net you a few thousand bucks. Go to your aunt and tell her how much it would mean for you to have the MP40, how you are willing to pay fair market value, and how you will do all the legwork. If she is receptive present her with an ad or two for 'regular' MP40s and the money you have raised to show your sincerity, and see if you can make it happen, using a payment plan for the balance as suggested above. Maybe she'll sell it to you for below market value but I cannot imagine she'd rebuke an offer to keep it in the family and get full value. Any dealer who brokers it is going to take a sizable cut so she'd be getting more money selling it to you anyway. On that note I'd hope a family member would give a slight discount but that's not your decision. GL!

e2: Also get a big giant nazi flag just because.

Offer her as much as you can for the whole collection if you think there's a chance it'll get sold off for well below market anyways. Then you can figure out what's best to keep and what should go to market.

In almost 14 years here I've never had my avatar changed by someone else, other than I was about 30th in line for a (frankly, rather uninspired) pony avatar. I feel left out.

Since I don't have a semi-auto .22LR rifle (other than my Uzi's .22LR conversion kit) I thought about getting a cheap 10/22. But then I know I'd want to suppress it, and if I'm going to do that I'll want to use a shorter barrel to both compensate for the increased length of the suppressor and to keep the bullet's velocity down. And then I might as well start out with an aftermarket receiver instead of a factory Ruger. So now I've turned a $250 almost-impulse purchase into a ~$1600 two-tax 6-month ordeal. Yay.
