    Never had one!

    I was deeply saddened by the theft of two handguns a Colt Trooper in 357, and a Smith Model 60.

    And I'd love to have the SIG 229 in 357 that you didn't like!!

    So far none that I regret. But I will keep trying to find one

    No really major regrets - tho my Para P12-45 is still somewhat of a disappointment - maybe one day I'll make it run right.

    I got a cheapie Hi-Point carbine ages ago from a gun show and tho folks seem to like them - I hate this one. Made up for that by getting a few other pistol cal carbines!

    Didn't quite regret buying a P3AT but was not over enamored - it's gone now.

    Pretty much everything else I love!!!

    Regret getting the Mauser HSc .380. My very first semi...back in my PI days. Darn thing hurts my trigger finger every time I shoot it. Have never really figured out what's going on there. But, it's a sentimental piece and I just can't part with it.....well, maybe for a PPK!

    I bought a Davis Derringer once that was broken out of the box. Sent it back and was quit of it forever.

    I have several that I bought and enjoyed but ended up buying something I liked better and that I should have bought in the first place. Now I rarely shoot some of the stuff that I have.

    I have a NEF .45-70 Handi Rifle that I should probably sell as I will probably never use it for anything but taking up space in the gun locker. It's a nice rifle, but I just don't know when I'd ever use it and would like to have the money to spend on something I'd shoot more.

    I have a Yugo SKS that I have yet to degoop. I bought it on a whim, and now I'd like to have to the money for something else.

    I have amassed several .22 bottom feeders. I have one that I will never willingly part with (target use). I have two others that both serve pretty much the same function as the other (plinking/instructing). I should sell one of them, but I can't decide which one to sell.

    I bought a Remington 1100 Synthetic and then turned around and bought a DeHaan U1 for skeet/sporting clays. I should have just bought one or the other, but I hang on to both of them. I shoot the U1 more at the club, but I just can't bring myself to sell the 1100 even though I could get my money back out of it easily.

    A Para P12 Ejected into my forehead with every shot. Ran hot and the barrel lug was unreasonably tight. Gone.

    S&W 5906. Five different shooters could not get this gun to shoot. It was the wife's first gun. It's a wonder she kept with shooting after the experience. Gone.

    After going through 60+ guns you are bound to have one or two you aren't happy with.

    Oh my - that reminds me - one other. I used to do some skeet and trap with my son - still do but very rarely now. I bought a very lovely Browning Citori Hunter from his step uncle and loved that gun.

    However - after quite some time of little use thought that $700 or so was better recouped - and things were a tad skinny at the time. I miss that shottie and replaced it with a Baikal - which ain't bad value but not the same.

    Good side of all that tho was - Citori was on consignment and it went eventually - return to me was $650. Day I went in for check - saw my M27-2 under the counter. $400 out the door and it had a box too - so - oh well - pocket suffered but I got my M27. No regrets on that one.

    Taurus 945, I should have bought another 1911. The taurus shoots good but it always dents the casing when it ejects it. I use it for my bedroom gun.

    My second Steyr M40....it's extractor is fairly unreliable....I hope Steyr starts getting parts back into the US so I can get this gun fixed.

    My second HK P9S 9mm....accurate when it shoots, but someone replaced the bolt assembly with one that is not matched to the gun....as a result, the rounds don't chamber. Spare parts are hard to come by and when they do, expensive in this no longer made gun.

    An Astra model 80 in 45ACP. The gun shot fine except from the factory the fixed sights shot 6" low and 10 yards. I also learned that I didn't like handling of it and the way it fit my hand. I sold it two weeks after I bought it for $25 less than I paid for it. I then immediately bought the S&W mod 686 that Chris (P95 Carry) now owns.

    I just couldn't shoot the thing!
    Not a bad pistol.
    Traded it for a 1911 and happiness.

    Oh yeah my Mini-14 is up there too but it's going soon.
