    I miss the Ruger P85 MKII. Sold to a buddy when I decided I would rather have a Glock.. He says he is keeping it, but if he changes his mind, I have already told him where he can get his money back plus $50.

    A Colt 380 Government model. I sold it back when they were all over the place, figured I didn't really need it. I'd carry it all the time now if I still had it.

    No...probably makes you smart and prevents the "crap...what did I do?" effect.

    If Never Getting Rid Of Any Is Smart

    Then consider me a Dunce.

    Years ago I "Thinned Out" my collection & especially after switching from revolver to Semi for carry...I dumped ALL of my wheelguns at quite a loss. The total number of firearms that left my company (mostly all in near mint) numbers around 30 plus more than a few long guns.

    But, hopefully soon I get to start all over again buying some newer firearms that really interest me.

    OUCH!! QK - what were you doing? Ok I know, thinning out but - OUCH again!

    I have sold very few over many years. I miss an old single shot .410 folding shottie funnily enough - so compact and never found another.

    Probably my biggest regret was also a longarm actually - BSA MkII Martini action bull barrel target 22. Parker Hale aperture sights front and rear - butt stock with hook, thumbhole stock - a real gem of a target rifle. I gave up .22 rifle precision shooting but oh my - should have kept that rifle.

    Speaking of OUCH!! I am a rimfire nut at heart, and reading this brought a tear to my eye, Chris. If I should ever see one of these for sale, I will think of you. (As I buy it of course..)

    Russian Saiga.

    I didn't know you could legally convert them until AFTER I sold it.
