    Any firearm purchase regrets?

    Having traded in or sold a few of my firearms in the short time that I've concealed carried, I wondered how many of you ever purchased a firearm then asked yourself, "Why did I buy this"? What firearm was it and why did you regret buying it?

    I had one that really geve me some headaches, a PF9. FTE's, stove pipes and when it actually worked, it made my hand sore for a week. I read bad reveiws and still decided to buy it so I kicked myself for buying it. I still bought it cause it was cheap and I like to form my own opinion base on my experience and not other's.

    +1 on the PF9, for the same reasons listed by Indio.

    Yep PF9, then my last regretful "trade" was my P238 for a Para P10-45 (not warthog) what was I thinking???. But Then I sold that for 400.00 along with a P250 and bought a Sig 1911 Ultra Compact<<<<best decision ever.

    ATI FX45 Titan.

    It runs fine, but as an all-steel 3" 1911, it is butt-heavy; meaning that when drawing quickly, you tend to have the bring the front sight down on the target, vs. up.

    All in all, I suppose it was a cheap lesson in proving to myself that short-barreled 1911's don't work for me. It now resides in the kitchen safe, and I use it when answering the door.

    I bought a Bond Arms SnakeSlayer in 410/45lc. Thought i would use it for my ccw. Thing hurt my hand so bad, couldn't enjoy it at the range.
    Traded it for a Wather P22 plinker. I have since bought a fare share of Rugers.

    I might add, since joining DC. I have learned alot from you guys! !

    I mostly regret the ones I let get away.

    A big, good-looking Interarms Virginian Dragoon .44 Magnum single action revolver caught my eye back in the late 1970s. Cost a dollar more than the Ruger Super Blackhawk next to it in the pistol case at the gun shop. Much better finished and with better fit than the Ruger, it proved to be a disappointment in actual use. All the screws loosened with every cylinder-full of ammo fired and it flatted primers with every kind of load, whether mild or wild. Even factory .44 Special loads flattened primers. Was not confidence inspiring. It had to go away.

    No regrets in buying or selling any of mine, only in not getting to shoot them more. Well, maybe one regret--the Ruger .41 Magnum Blackhawk that was stolen.

    Yes.

    PT845, which I traded for a Glock 30.
    Glock 30, which I traded for a Glock 36.
    Glock 36, which I still have and sits in the safe.

    Now I'm just wondering what I can trade the Glock 36 for that I won't regret.
