    I don't have any. There is only one gun I would like to have again, but I don't regret getting rid of the one I had and that's the Beretta CX4.

    A battlefield-acquired WWII Gewehr 98 gifted to me by my ex's father back in the '60s. Several years later, I traded it for parts for my old Harley.

    My Marlin 30-30, bought it new in 1990 as a divorce gift to me. Sold it to a buddy so I could get my M&P 9 2.0. Best brush gun I ever owned. (And no, never but a scope on it)

    Every Dan Wesson and S&W revolver I ever had. Especially because when I got them I was only paying $250-350 for them. That will never happen again.

    i sort of wished i had had the foresight to know what some guns are worth today, that years ago, i could picked up cheap! would have been a much better investment than my 401K! sure would have been much more fun too! :)

    Bought a bunch of Smith &Wesson grips, back in the seventies, when people were pulling off the wood, and installing plastic ones. The factory wood grips are now worth around $200 a pair.

    that's pretty cool Mr. Jigs. you could probably make a small fortune selling them on EBAY. a lot of people are buying older pistols and wanting the factory grips for them.

    The three screw Ruger Blackhawk in 41 magnum that I didn't buy in 1973 , I mistakenly thought I wanted a 44 magnum, the tag was hidden and when the dealer pulled it out, I saw 41 mag. and said NO .....$75.00 was the price , it was little used too ! I still kick myself for not buying that one.
    I have never sold any gun I liked even just a little. This was advice from my Daddy when I was young...he was right.

    No regrets. If I hadn't sold them at the times I did it's doubtful I'd be here today.

    I had a buddy in '73 who paid $300 for a very slightly used 4" Colt Python. I thought he was nuts... boy was I wrong.

    Went to an estate sale in SE PA in about 1974. Saw a Colt SAA in good shape for $75. Walked away from it because my wife because we needed an “accent” table more. The table is long gone. The Colt would still be here.
