    Has this ever happened to anyone here?

    A few years ago I sold a 12GA Ithaca model 37 Featherlight shotgun to a fellow at a gunshow here in Richmond, VA. I always regretted it since it was an excellent weapon. It was really reliable and I really liked the bottom eject and the abillity to pump off the entire contents of the mag without releasing the trigger.

    So why did I sell it, right?

    Well anyway, I put a Walther P22 up for trade on another forum, and one of the responses I got was an offer of an Ithaca 37, so I jumped at it. Today I met the guy and did the trade and right away I knew that there was something familiar about the gun. The guy tells me that he bought it from a woman at a gunshow in Chantilly, VA a year or so ago. So I take it home and, as is my habit, I entered it into a database I keep of all my weapons and the serial # matches the gun I sold previously, but I had a duplicate receipt (I'll do receipts if someone wants one) for the previous sale and the guy's name didn't match.

    So it has come home. This time to stay.

    Yeah, but it came directly back to me from the guy who bought it. I regretted selling the gun and after about 6-8 months I asked him if he ever shot the thing. He said no. So I said that was abuse and asked him to sell it back to me, so he did. Nothing as interesting as yours going through multiple hands back to you.

    I keep hoping that S&W 9MM that I sold back to the gunstore because I had to pay returns to me someday. Eventhough I really only believe in .45's I regret selling the pistol because it was in a steel frame. (I prefer heavier pistols.

    Looks like you and that 37 were meant to be.

    Hold on to it this time. You won't get another chance like that.
