Got mine years ago and lots of ammo.
A thousand rounds will do you. :) I think I got mine in 2008.
I paid about $350 for a WASR-10, 5 magazines, and a case of ammo with 2 spam cans of ammo back in the late 90's. I had a couple of SKS's and packed away the WASR. By 2012 I had shot up one of the spam cans in the SKS and I sold the WASR and 5 mags for $1100. I still have the other spam can in the basement and the SKS in the gun safe.I sold off half of my gun collection back in 2012. If prices go up another couple of hundred dollars I have a Bushmaster AR-15 and VZ58 that will be for sale. Long guns have increased in value but pistols have taken off.
Thanks and I assume you are keeping what is needed.
Always upgrading. I have 3 low end pistols I hope to sell that I haven't shot in over 10 years. With another pistol I recently sold they would go a long way to fund a nice 10mm.If I can get the Bushmaster and VZ58 gone they will provide seed money for a Service Grade CMP M1 Garand.

:) good memory.
I'll stick with my Colt M4A1 +8 30 round mags and Remington 870. Got beaucoup ammo for both.
I fought a used Colt Python when I came back from Vietnam in 1975 for $140. I sold it to buy an AK and a Saiga 12 which I thought was a good deal at the time but they have doubled since then. :(
I bought a Russian AK in 2003 during the Clinton AWB. It had one 30 rd mag. I guess it was a "pre ban" which had been imported prior to the ban? It's muzzle break was welded on instead of a threaded barrel which was one of the offending "assault weapon" features. I sold it last year to a younger good friend with 2000 rds of ammo. I still have an M1A which, so far, is overlooked by the gun banners as an "assault weapon". In my older age, I find myself gravitating to simpler rifles like my bolt action Mossberg. .308/7.62 and am now looking for a .357 lever action to pair with my .357 Taurus revolver. --Ron W
.357 lever actionI have wanted one since my Roy Rogers days and still don't have one. :)
