Do you save the cardboard boxes your rifles came in? I have been saving them, now I think I want to reclaim the space and toss them out. All my rifles are shooters not collector items si I really don't see the value in saving the boxes anymore.

Mine have survived several moves, but I'm leaning your way on this. I'm just paranoid enough to worry THAT'S when it'll break and I'll have to ship it back. Lol 馃槅

Of course, the one's in hard cases are keepers.

Are they worth selling on eBay?

I toss cardboard gun boxes after a few weeks to a month, after I'm sure the merchandise doesn't need to be returned for a manufacturing defect. So far Mr. Murphy and his Corollaries have not bothered me about doing that. :whistle:

I have several boxes that I kept for I don鈥檛 know what. I think tomorrow I鈥檓 going to get rid of them. I even have a box my pellet gun came in. Empty boxes sitting around of any kind are a waste of space. Time to clean house.

I've saved my long gun boxes for years. I bought my HiPoint 995 used with no box. That's the only gun that I had to send back for warranty repairs. I sent it back in a hard case which the factory used for return shipping. I dump my boxes now after a year, give or take.

If cleaning out your rifle boxes is a project, you must have a lot of rifle boxes!
Saving the boxes in case I recover the guns from the moat. :cool:

No. That was non-negotiable with the Mrs. Pick your battles, We've moved 6 times in the course of our careers. One was a box that I had received my factory new Norinco SKS in when I made that purchase back in the 80's. It cost under $100 at that time, I bought it at a gun show. That firearm still has yet to be cleaned / degreased much less fired.

Buying items from web based sites like GunBroker.com that required shipping to an FFL helped simplify matters as my chosen FFL would generally take care of disposing of any cardboard boxes and packing excelsior for me, when I'd come into hisvshop to complete the transfer. He was good about asking me first about this.

The last such cardboard box I needed to recycle myself was the only firearm I ever purchased through Bass Pro Shops. It was an AFAIK an unfired Zastava LK M70 bolt action rifle in the "Used" inventory of a store close to the northern national border, Owatonna, MN. At that time the policy was free shipping to the SA store, with a polymer padded gun case plus a lock & cable included at no additional cost to me. I carried it downstairs and out of Bass Pro in the cardboard box the gun case came in. This was not too long before the onset of the initial pandemic pandemonium. I understand the Bass Pro Shops & Cabela's policies have changed since that time.

Carried five rifle boxes to the trash yesterday. An arm load and quite dusty. I blacked out the serial numbers on each box as an extra safety measure for my own ease of mind.
