Drunk horse riding? Sounds awesome, invite me next time

First case... Browning Medallist 22lr. This one I lost because I never told my father that I wanted until a year after he let it go.
Second case... Ruger 10/22 stainless steel on synthetic stock for 175. Miss it for this much. (50 bucks)
Third case... Chinese SKS incredibly beautiful and a sweet shooter. My two face friend sold it today even after I told him hold to it for a couple of week until I get the money.

I have to be honest....I haven't had that happen yet. I stumbled on my 629-1 and my wife was with me. I told her at the price they were asking I couldn't walk away. I had always wanted one and here it was...$450 later I had a 629 with 8 3/8" barrel in 99% condition with all the factory papers and box....I still own that gun and it's my favorite 44 to shoot.

Think it was a Savage a .22/410ga. (.22 on top the 410ga on the bottom). My brain cell was stuck on getting a Rugger 10/22. Can't remember the price of the Savage but I could only afford one rifle at the time and went for the Rugger which are a dime a dozen. Still smack myself in the head with my palm from time to time.

My "buddy" bought an MP5 and the day he picked it up he called me to ask if he could shoot it on my range. We did, great afternoon.

Fast forward a couple of years and he trades it to a guy for a brake job on a car he eventually abandons. And I was a professional mechanic. I could have fixed the damned car so he could have driven it (and stopped) for the MP5.

Last gun show I missed a really good condition SA stainless mil-spec 1911 for $375. Was stuck in my booth and couldn't run out for more cash.

Same show I also let go an SA ultra compact for $500. Didn't make it an isle away while thinking about it before it was gone.

I missed out on a $800 IHC Garand by one day. A buddy of mine knew a guy who was selling one, I went down the next morning and it was already gone... The guy said he had it sold in under 2 hours...

Now everytime I see one their 2-3 times the price.....

I have a like new EAA 30.06/ 12 ga over under I have been thinking of unloading and I have been on the fence for months now . Yesterday I looked them up on gun broker but they only had the 12ga/ .223 combo and it was selling anywhere from $550-$700 used and scratched . Hmmm kinda changed my mind of what I had planned on trading for since its value is more than I had expected . Its just one of those deals what do you do ?
