Guns you wish you had kept
During a bout of ill fortune some years ago--divorce, unemployment, illness, you don't want to know--my once-extensive gun collection slipped out of my grasp. I sometimes daydream about the great guns I once owned but probably never will again. Anybody else have regrets like this?

Here are my most-mourned Top Ten:

1. Colt SAA, .44 Special, 4 3/4" barrel, nickeled

2. S&W M629, .44 Magnum, 4" barrel, stainless

3. Colt Series 70, .45 ACP, stroked & bored, blue

4. Colt (genuine) new production 1860 Army, stainless

5. Wildey .45 Magnum, engraved & nickeled

6. S&W M649, .38 Special, 2" barrel, shrouded hammer, stainless

7. Browning .22 auto rifle, blue

8. AR-15 old model (triangular handguard, no bolt assist), .223

9. HK91 fixed stock, .308

10. Winchester 9422 lever gun, .22 Magnum

(There were others, but I'm out of Kleenex...)

I wish I had held on to my USP. It was one of the last pre-ban German USPs that had the 4 way safety.

Kept the guns and Harley,but parted with ex wives ! Wish I
had been able to keep the rifle that I shot my first deer with
at age 13 (a little more than a few years ago). It was a like
new Marlin 1894 carbine in 32/40 caliber, receiver was case
harden. Not a tack driver, but took two Minnesota whitetails
with it. It was borrowed, and I lost track of it after joining
the Marine Corps!:)

A few, which I traded. It seemed like a good idea at the time. :(

I sold a Springfield 03A3 that was in collector grade to a co worker for $ 75.00 because I didnt like bolt action guns. I'm kicking myself now.

Every gun I've ever parted with!
I feel sick every time I think of the ones that I let go of.....
