Obviously you should save all the paperwork that comes with a long gun, but do you save the cardboard box that it comes in as well?

If I have the room I keep the boxes since they can come in handy during moves or if you ever need to ship a gun.

No. Why would you?

might get more money when reselling if you have everything that came with it.

Maybe to some people. Me, I'm not going to pay more for a gun just because it has a brown cardboard box. Selling it with a hard case? That's a different story.

Only have one, and it is old enough for the box to have deteriorated completely in storage. No point. If I were getting a new one (which won't be happening), then I definitely would. Always save your paperwork on that kind of purchase.

Why save the paperwork even? Like the manual (which is just full of lawyer-imposed safety talk) and/or warranty card?
