    A Colt Officers ACP that I sold when I needed the cash more than a second handgun. There are a few others I'd like back, but generally they were traded or sold for something I wanted more, at least at the time.

    None I really regret. Closest is a S&W M15. Didn't use it much, so I figured let someone else enjoy...

    One gun I regret NOT BUYING was a 1904 nickle plate Colt Single Action Army .45. I had just picked up a 1938(?)Browning Superposed a week or two before and had to let it slip away. Shoulda got rid of the shotgun and snagged the revolver! Especially since I'm trying to get rid of the Superposed now

    Can't narrow it down to just one so here's the ones that hurt the most: My first 1911 - Colt Gov't. MKIV Series 80 Enhanced. My favorite woods gun - Colt Anaconda w/4" barrel. My first handgun purchase - Ruger P-89DC (it was a tack driver). Remington 700 BDL in .30-06 (best rifle I've ever owned). There are others I miss and regret selling but those are the ones that stand out the most.

    I sold off three guns and traded one away.

    I truly regret selling my pre-72 Colt Detective Special and my first HK P9S Combat 9mm.

    The DS was a clunker; the bore was almost smooth, the finish was rough, the grips were just as bad and it spit debris out the sides due to an overgenerous barrel/cylinder gap....but the trigger was nothing short of amazing; (probably) no doubt due to the tremendous amounts of ammo having gone down its barrel.....I wish I kept that gun. Pangs of jealously hit me whenever I see Russell Crowe with what looks like a pre-72 DS in the movie "L.A. Confidential."

    The HK was the single most accurate gun I owned. The gun was a used gun I purchased from William Drollinger in TX (used to advertise in Gun List and Shotgun News back in the 80's) together with three spare mags in 1987. Expensive but worth it. I sold it (and the DS) in 1989 due to the then limited budget afforded a USAF butter bar with one young child and (ex) spouse who didn't work.

    Oh yeah, I replaced the P9S (older than the one I had) last year, but it had a mis-matched bolt assembly which cased FTE's; I replaced the barrel just this week.....I hope it works out ok.

    So far I have been lucky I have been able to hold on to all the guns I have aquired over the years. (Even a Jennings .25) I did have I believe it was a Standard? 9 shot 22. My Father really wanted it so I gave it to him. Later that year at Christmas he gave me his Winchester 1894 30-30

    I do not miss the 22 I gave to my Father.....But I do love my guns

    How many guns are to many ?

    Sold a bunch of them when I moved out of my house and needed cash for my first apartment in the mid 90's. The three I really miss because I shot them a lot:

    1) Ruger Mini-14 Ranch Rifle. Stainless with folding stock.
    2) Mossberg 500. 20 inch barrel, 8 shot, pistol grips and stock.
    3) Taurus PT92

    The rest were occasionlly used, so they're not missed as badly.

    Oh well, guess it's time to start the collection again.
