    Okay, FESS up! Name the guns you owned and later traded or sold only to kick yourself in the fullness of time. Also rate the satisfaction of the new gun you got for your "baby."

    An HK P9S Combat in 9mm (with four mags...or was it five?) and a pre-72 Colt Detective Special that was a beater when I purchased in eons ago in Puerto Rico, but also had the best trigger pull I've ever felt on a gun.

    I regret trading my Kel-Tec folding carbine for the Beretta M92, although the M92 has been a great IDPA gun. I regret trading my Colt Officer's 45 in a straight swap for my Rossi Overland Exposed Hammer shotgun. I regret selling my Glock M30. I REALLY regret selling my AR-15 "Green Gun!" I also regret selling my first M1A to pay a bill. lol Learned my lesson on that one. But I was very young and dumb...I regret selling my electroless nickel Python 4" and I regret selling my original Star PD in 45.

    Regret?? All of them.
    Those that stand out most notably are a Smith and Wesson 686 and a pre-ban Colt AR-15.

    Oh my - how to keep brief!!!

    OK well - for starters, without itemizing - imagine yourselves being ''robbed'' of 24 handguns - like I was in '97 by UK Gubmint!! Got monetary comp' but hey - you can imagine what it might be like.

    Otherwise - traded my BSA MkII Martini target .22 rifle and a folding .410 single shot - for my first M27 Smith - I still miss the Martini action a lot and wish I had had the cash to buy Smith outright!

    I ''lost'' too in UK earlier in 90's a tasty Stirling carbine - and Mini-14 - semi's were banned! Sheesh - they finished up wall hangers and a painful reminder every time I looked at em. replaced the Mini but the Stirling - a very sad loss. Must have a pic of that - somewhere.

    Sold my P3AT this last year - didn't like it a whole lot - no loss. Sold a commem 1911 back to guy I got it from - no real biggie because I could not shoot it - so instead got the 220 from Gary.

    Then finally, moved on my P12.45 to get a 228 - I miss the Para - tho it was not one I used a lot, but sure was nice to have. Ideal would be to never sell anything!!

    I rate what I have got in trades as just fine - but always regret moving on any at all.

    No regrets at all...I've never sold or traded one.
    Almost traded a Ruger security six once but came to my senses...

    Haven't gotten rid of anything. Don't think I will unless the old lady makes me. I don't think I want the pain you guys are going through.

    I'm unloading a few (pardon the pun) this year, but I intend to replace them at some point in time. That's different than having to sell it of course.

    Sometimes you get a gun on the cheap, figure out you like that platform a lot, but wish you had a different model or whatever. That's where I am on a few things right now.

    The first firearm I bought was a surplus Mosin Nagant 1891/30. I held onto it for about two years before getting "bored". To make a long story short, I sold it to a co-worker and put the money (not much, really) towards a Kel-Tec P3AT for my wife to use.

    Looking back, I wish I had kept that old thing. It was about as basic a 75 year old battle rifle as you can get, but ammo was dirt cheap, and it was a lot of fun to plink with at the range.

    Of course, all I have to do is pull out the ol' .30-06 to make me feel better about the whole matter.

    A common thought to this thread is "All of 'em!" and I must agree!

    Well, almost. I sold a Thompson and used the money to buy a Kimber ProCDP, which is a terrific gun. And I dumped a Raven that was gathering dust. Otherwise, I regret trading/selling every other gun that I traded.

    -A beautiful Sig P220 with NP3 treatment.

    -A S/W 645 with Millet sights.

    -A S/W 6906 with action job and spurred hammer.

    -A S/W 19 2 1/2" blue also with action job.

    -My very first gun, a Ruger Service Six.

    DOHHHH!!!

    Now I just save the moolah and buy new ones, much to the chagrin of my wife!

    S&W M29 (M25?) in .45 LC.... MAN that was a great gun.

    Also my dad's service revolver, 6" S&W .38, don't remember what type... gave it back to him tho, so I might get my hands on it again some day.
