    What's the gun you sold but now you wished you wouldn't have.

    Really, I don't have many regrets but I did sell one not to long ago, nothing special but it was a Ruger Sr9...... I put over 2,000 rounds through it and never a hickup

    A nice blued Colt 1911... Made well, and with a trip to a competent 'smith, would have been a great gun.

    The most accurate Mini-14 I've ever owned and I've owned a number of them over the years.

    Ruger PC9. It was heavy and the trigger pull was too. But I liked it.
    I let it go when I decided that I had to many guns.

    Pistol-Keltec P11 that was modified when new by the gunsmith I bought it from. He knew what he was doing and the trigger was smooth. Over 6000 round with only 1 malfunction and it was a bad primer.
    Rifle-Marlin 336T in 35 Remington. I got sold on high power rifles and never really needed one. Longest shot I ever took on game was 70 yards.

    New condition Ruger p85 stainless. It had a reputation for breaking so I sold it before it would break.

    H&R top break revolver in the anemic 38S&W caliber. Sold because ammo was too expensive and hard to get. If I kept it I probably wouldn't shoot it much anyway. The guy I sold it too wanted something cheap to ventilate steel drums for burning trash. Those anemic rounds wouldn't penetrate so he sold it, even though he promised he would give me first chance at buying it back.

    Norinco sks, I didn't need it.

    Me too! But I redeemed myself with a S&W 686 7 shot I bought two years ago for $525 (after months of searching for a good deal)

    That would be my Trapdoor Springfield 45-70,,,
    I sold it in 1982 for a really great price,,,
    Been kickin' my arse ever since.

    I had sellers remorse within 24 hours,,,
    I tried to buy it back and even offered a $50.00 bonus.

    I was caught up in a moment of stupidity.

    A mint condition 30-06 Madsen M47, w/ bayonet (with matching serial number) and the Columbian crest set in the stock. I was young, needed the money, and the SOB still owes me for the balance of the money.

    One day karma will get him- and if I have led a good life, I'll get to watch......

    Meh, I've had a lot of great ones over the years but like girlfriends past I guess they did not hold my attention and had to be moved on to other guys. I'm down to a pretty nice core of great firearms that I will probably never get rid off, and I find myself concentrating more on customs or hard to replace guns, but in the past guns have been an experiment. Buy them, use them and THEN decide if they stay. Heck I can think of at least 4-5 .44 mags in the last 5 years that did not get a permanent spot in the safe including the venerable 29-2, Grizzly semi-auto, Ruger Redhawk, S&W 329 and pristine 629-1 that went of for extensive customization and it's now a 629-1 Mountain Gun, something S&W never built.

    A 1980s Browning manufactured 1895 Winchester in 44-40 I bought new.
    A true safe queen, it was never fired.

    A High Standard Sentinel "Double Nine" that was my first handgun. I bought it wholesale through my mom and dad's country store a long time ago. I wish I wouldn't have sold it later on. But that's more for sentimental reasons than practical reasons. I've had, and in fact have better handguns since I sold that High Standard Sentinel. But I repeat - it was my first handgun.:)
