    Traded in at a dealer? NEVER!
    Sold or traded to private party - 4-5, no regrets.

    NONE and NEVER! Someday they will all be antiques
    Actually I am a collector and just keep getting more and more. My big fascination is collecting the same type of weapon that were used in assassinations around the world. Even have a piece of junk Rhom that was used to try to assassinate Reagen. Got it for 15 bucks.

    I've decided to keep my collection to a specific number. Too many and I just can't find the time to shoot them all. I traded one and I'm kinda regretting it. Oh well.

    I tried to trade a mint S&W 1006 and four extra mags for a new Glock 17 at Vance's in Columbus. The guy took it into the back to "show" the manager, and came back about five minutes later and told me $200 was the most he could give me on it. I literally laughed all the way out the door.

    I have traded once. I won a rifle at a fund raiser that I had no need for. I treid ti sell it privatley, but nobody wanted to pay over half of what is cost new. I traded it for a s&w model 10. If i was a little more patient, I probably could have gotten more for the rifle, but it is a sweet model 10.

    Getting ready to trade a Remington 700 ADL 30.06 that hasn't been fired more than 20 times and the last time was 25 years ago although it's been cleaned & oiled routinely.

    I sold an old 98k Mauser I made into a nice .308 for $350. I then went directly to the gun shop and bought a Walther pk380. Only $40 out of pocket after buying ammo also and an extra mag. No regrets at all. Already have a 30.06 that out shot the .308 so no big deal.

    Haven't traded one in but did sell 2 KelTec PF9's to finance a purchase of a S&W Sigma 9F (which I'm trying to sell now too, since we replaced it for my wife with an M&P Shield) and my Mosin/Nagan 91/30. No regrets there at all.

    Bought, sold, traded, given away, and been given too many guns to remember.

    None. I'd rather wait a few weeks than sell something.
