    I have a REAL nice 4 screw S&W Mdl 17 22 LR that I MIGHT want to sell. I just have too many! I don't shoot it hardly at all. I just can't make up my mind whether or not to let it go. I bought it originally because my goal was to get back into shooting and 22's would be the least expensive way to go. I wanted a Colt Diamondback but they are to pricey so I found this S&W and got it. I did pay a fare amount for it though.
    When I bought my AR15 I told myself I would sell the S&W to recoup most of the cost, justifying the purchase. So do I list it here or not?

    You will want to post it in the Classified section. I'll keep an eye out. That's something I might be interested in.

    Not knowing what is in a shooter's closet, it is difficult to say what path to follow.. The Smith is beautiful and I would expect very accurate. If you believe in having some ammo put by, a ,22 revolver is an inexpensive way to go. A .22 revolver is an excellent way to get a BF/GF or youngster into shooting. There are locations where discharging a CF may be unacceptable whereas a .22 will go unnoticed. If you paid too much it may be difficult to get what you want , so---.
    After a lifetime of firearms, there are many I wish I had kept.

    If you decide to sell please let us know here and what your asking price is, there are many of these in circulation but they remain a fun revolver to shoot and it will not break the bank in the process. Personally its a keeper but its also your decision!

    Don't sell! You will regret it. I hear too many stories of seller's remorse.

    I agree with Clem.... Only guns I've ever sold were a smith & wesson model 19 in 357mag, a browning hi-power 9mm and a kel-tec 380acp and I really kick my self in the ass for selling that s&w and browning!

    I really think its not worth selling guns thes days you just don't have a lot of people wanting to pay. Uh for anything these days but then you never know I bet it fits well in your collection you never have enought guns the only reason I ever sold a gun was to get a better gun for me only ever sold one you could not get ammo for it hardly 32 long rifle sold it put the money towards a stoger condor supreme I may sell it one day for a red label
