    Well I'm sure this thread exist but I can't find it and I'm bored so hear goes. What are your most regrettable semi auto handgun departures that you wish you would not have done? I had a whopping 4 before I learned my lesson about letting firearms go for one I think I want more. #1- sig p229 with both 357sig and 40s&w barrels (those of you who own/owned one know why), #2-beretta 92fs (most accurate handgun I ever shot personally), #3- browning bdm 9mm ( just a good gun I rarely run into, never again as a matter of fact), #4- kimber bp ten 2 ( polymer 1911 that held ten rounds and was very accurate for under $500 and rarely seen nowadays as it's discontinued)

    I regret letting a wartime Walther PP go. It belonged to my boss at the time, but he was able to pry it out of my hand and take it back :(

    just about every 1911 i traded to trade up to a nicer 1911! if i had al of them back that i had over the years, well, i would need a lot more storage room and more ammo for sure!

    I sold a Para Ordinance P10-45. That is a sub compact double stack 1911 with a 3 inch barrel. It was Stainless. It was a mistake to get rid of it.

    I also sold a High Point 45. Not that it was special. But I wish I still had it to throw in a back pack to keep for emergencies.

    I have sold several revolvers I am sorry about too. But I guess that will be another thread.

    High Standard HD Military I sold in 1980 or so. Bought another a couple of years ago,
    but it's just not as good as the old one was.

    HK USP 45 with SS slide. Needed cash for medical bills. That gun was a shooter and more accurate than me

    Smith and Wesson model 59. I traded it for something back in about 1985 or so. Can't even remember what I traded it for, which is a clear indication it was a really stupid move on my part.

    I've traded several over the years and can't say I really regret getting rid of any of them. My collection is finally coming to the point where I don't have anything that I can see trading or selling. A couple times I've regretted taking the trade value but it was usually for a gun I really wanted.

    S&W 6904.

    It was the first handgun I ever bought - right after my 21st birthday.

    I sold it thinking that I wanted something "better." I've since owned auto pistols from Ruger, Glock, and a few of the striker-fired Smiths (Sigmas and M&Ps). I've handled and shot 1911s, XDs, Sig Sauers, Tauri, etc.

    I've yet to find any auto pistol that offered anything "more" or "better" than that 6904... :-(

    I can't really say I regret letting go of any gun, but I do regret not at least trying a trigger job on my lc9

    Smith and wesson sigma in a .40. I have way better pistols at this point but that thing was so reliable and cheap you didnt have to worry abt what happened to it. Perfect woods and truck gun

    I sold or traded a Star PD 45. Was cheap and it was compact, should have kept it. Sold a 44 Dan Wesson stainless vent heavy 8" what a beast. Should have kept that one too.

    Sold:
    Beretta 96FS Inox
    XD 9
    M&P Shield 9
    M&P 9 VTAC
    Glock 34
    XDM Compact 9
    Range Officer

    I currently own:
    Springfield Loaded Champion SS
    XDS 45

    I wish I still had the VTAC, Glock 34 and the XDM Compact. But I am glad I only have one cartridge to buy. 45 ACP was what I was made to shoot.
