We've all done it. What is the ONE gun that you regret ever having sold/traded?

a s&w model 36 that i sold in 1982 and a wwII p38 that i sold in 1974. back in them days i did not see a reason why anyone would have a 9mm over a good old 45.

I miss the Ruger P85 MKII. Sold to a buddy when I decided I would rather have a Glock.. He says he is keeping it, but if he changes his mind, I have already told him where he can get his money back plus $50.

No...probably makes you smart and prevents the "crap...what did I do?" effect.

If Never Getting Rid Of Any Is Smart

Then consider me a Dunce.

Years ago I "Thinned Out" my collection & especially after switching from revolver to Semi for carry...I dumped ALL of my wheelguns at quite a loss. The total number of firearms that left my company (mostly all in near mint) numbers around 30 plus more than a few long guns.

But, hopefully soon I get to start all over again buying some newer firearms that really interest me. :yup:

OUCH!! QK - what were you doing? Ok I know, thinning out but - OUCH again!

I have sold very few over many years. I miss an old single shot .410 folding shottie funnily enough - so compact and never found another.

Probably my biggest regret was also a longarm actually - BSA MkII Martini action bull barrel target 22. Parker Hale aperture sights front and rear - butt stock with hook, thumbhole stock - a real gem of a target rifle. I gave up .22 rifle precision shooting but oh my - should have kept that rifle.

Speaking of OUCH!! I am a rimfire nut at heart, and reading this brought a tear to my eye, Chris. If I should ever see one of these for sale, I will think of you. (As I buy it of course..) :wink:

Chris-
I have a BSA Martini Mark V; I can understand how you miss your Mark II. My most regretted was a 1911A1, my first .45. Shot tight groups until you cleaned it, then took about 6 sessions before the "accuracy" came back.

kast - I did out of interest research finding another - and found a site which I forget right now - where the guy was dealing almost exclusively in these.

As I had ceased active competition shooting with .22 rifle tho I could not justify something like $650!!!

Oh well - survive on good memories and hope someone somewhere (tho that was way back in 1981) - is still enjoying the heck out of it!

Springfield XD

Sold my Springfield XD as I needed the money to get my Sig P239, which is IMHO easier to conceal for a guy carrying close to 100 extra pounds in the Texas heat.

Never should have sold it. But hey, at least they are common as dirt and I can buy another. And they have that new 45 ACP..........

Maybe everything happens for a reason.

I'd have to say the most painful pistol loss was the Rem-Rand 1911a1 that was in about 90%-95% cond. I was young and stupid and regret it to this day, and it's been 12 yrs.
