    Guns you regret selling and guns you regret not buying

    Been shooting for over 35 years and at times I kick myself over guns that I wish I didn't sell and over guns I wish I bought when I had the chance for a good price. So I thought I'd start a thread for anyone who's been around guns for awhile to share their regrets. Should bring back some memories.

    For guns I should have kept: Colt Diamondback 4"bbl, Belgium Browning Hi-Power, Browning BL22, HK91, S&W M29 with 6-1/2" barrel.

    For guns I should have bought in the past: Colt Python, Belgian FN FAL

    There are no guns I regret selling, as I've sold few of what I've owned. If I sold one, it was to step up to something better or I had no use for it anymore. I've had a few stolen that I miss (my beloved Ruger .41 Mag Blackhawk), and a couple that currently have emotional attachment, even though they have no use to me (too old and feeble to hunt) but in all reality, all the others are available for the right price or reason. Most are still in production and available if I missed them.

    Gun I should have kept. S&W 686 4 inch that had the smoothest trigger out I the box.

    Gun I should have bought was a used H&K P2000 at Gander Mountain. I was looking at that along with a P30. Bought the P30 but should have bought both at those prices.

    Sold and sorely missed:

    Colt King Cobra 4"

    Smith & Wesson model 66 2.5" Bought police surplus, brand new in box for $170

    SIG Sauer P225 9mm

    And finally, two Colt Detective Specials, both in great shape

    I used to have to sell something to get something new. I won't get rid of anything I like now.

    I have yet to sell any, but there are a few I regret not buying. The first was a pair of Colt Diamondbacks, one in .38 and the other in .22... could have had the pair for under a grand a couple of years ago. The other was an Austin Behlert chopped (not just tuned) Hi-Power for sale from an estate for $800, about the same as a new, plain-Jane Mk III. This one was the real deal, signed by AB.

    I regret not buying a Winchester Model 21 side-by-side double way back in '59! I was working in a sporting goods store and could has gotten it for $125.00. But since I was only making $1.00 an hour, it was a bit more than I could afford. So I bought a Model 12 pump instead for $90.00. Still a lot of money at that time, but it was almost a weeks pay less expensive. I still have the Model 12 and wish I had the Model 21!

    Biggest regrettable sale: A Dan Wesson .357 "Pistol Pack" and a TON of accessories.

    There are others, but now I'm too depressed to discuss them... sigh...

    I do not have any regrets with any of the weapons that I have sold. My only regret is not having more of a bank roll to continue buying more.....

    Yup! The only gun I have ever sold was a PF9 and I just felt lucky to get rid of the POS.
