This is really as simple as it sounds. Find and loot 50 guns, grenades mods, or shields that you don't want to use and sell them to a shop. The vending machines are the shops in this game. You do not have to sell 50 items to a specific kind of vending machine or to a specific one. It is cumulative throughout your gameplay.

In order to make this a little bit faster you can play as the Hunter and use the skill "Ransack" which gives a percentage chance to get additional loot for every kill. In reality this should come very easy in normal play and you will not need the extra loot bonuses.


Update: This achievement has been reported to be glitched and not update for some people (myself included). I will update this post when I find a way to correct the issue.

Updatev2: The achievements that glitched for me are unlocking on an alternate character. I haven't sold 50 guns yet for this achievement, but I will update again when I have.

Updatev3: I can confirm that if you had the glitch where you didn't get the achievement on your first character, it is possible to create another character and get the achievement. Hopefully you are not unlucky and have the glitch twice and have to create a third character. So far, my second character has received every achievement that glitched for my first character including this one.

Over the course of the game, if you pick everything up, you'll end up with lots of unneeded gear. If you sell these you get lots of money, which counts towards the Pandora Dog Millionaire achievement. Also, all of these weapons, shields and other gear pieces count towards the Fence achievement. It doesn't just have to be guns. If you have lots of money, you can also buy weapons from a gun store and sell them. However, if you keep buying back and selling a single weapon, it doesn't count for the achievement. It only counts if you buy new weapons and sell them. You can even head to different locations with gun stores to buy and sell weapons. The cheapest guns are located in a gun vending machine in Fyrestone. If sell everything you don't need, and buy and sell some weapons, you'll easily get the Fence achievement by the end of the game. If you rescue lots of claptraps, or earn the Fully Loaded achievement first, you'll be able to hold more weapons at once, making easier to get this achievement.
