    I sold a Para C6, 3" BBL single stack, wood stock, stainless, LDA.

    Got it for about $600, fees incl, with 20 rounds through it. Had to tweak it a hair, but not much. It listed for $940, now the trplacement lists for $988.

    It sold for $650, and I get $500. But heck, I sure do regret that sale.
    Just the pleasure of walloping the hand with the recoil, then taking it apart was enough for me.

    Now here is a model I really wish I picked up in the 2003-2004 year.
    Now, it is all 2005 models withj the GriptorĀ® front-strap.

    Come on, show the love. Buy the Woodman a new gun and you will feel good about it. I might even come on over and rake the yard, fix the screen door, and repair that squeaky floorboard. Rewire Junior's bedroom with grounded recepticles?

    Sincerely, Woodman.

    I bought in 1973 (maybe 1974) and sold it sometime around 1981-1982
    It's only a fading memory now :(

    I have a list of all of the firearms I have traded or sold over the years. The only one I really regret was a Colt SA I purchased from a friend just before starting college. I sold it to pay for my last semester of Graduate School in 1982. Wish I knew then what I know now........ :(

    Most of the guns I have sold, I sold them for a good reason (really didn't like, did not function propery, etc.), but the ones that stick in my craw are a really sweet custom 686 and a Ruger MkII. I don't know why I sold the 686. I was made an offer I couldn't refuse in the MKII.

    Among the "good reason" sales are:

    Beretta 92 (was my dad's, jammed like crazy)
    Glock 17 (same, hated it)
    H&R .22 mag pull-pin (pain in the . . . you know)
    Marlin 30AS (don't hunt anymore and needed some quick cash)

    I sold a mint condition Winchester model 11 autoloader shotgun for $200.00.I hated this gun with a passion.I never felt such nasty recoil ever.Well,now the collectors want them in that kinda shape.Not that I really want it back,I just wished i kept it longer.

    A sold a Parker .410 for fifty bucks when I was 16. So young I don't know to this day what grade it was, but it was right up there. The construction guy I sold it to was over the moon.

    Where'd I get the gun in the first place? It was my grandfathers.

    Excuse me, I'm going to be sick---again.
