    What guns are you sorry that you got rid of ? I'm sure most of us are involved in buying, selling and trading. I'm not talking about bad deals, just about guns you wish you still had.

    There are 3 I wish I had kept.

    First is my S&W model 58. I like the 41 round and that 58 was just a nice pistol.

    Second is a NM M1A. It had a 3 digit ser. number under 200. It wasn't fancy looking but it was very accurate.

    The third was a H&K P7M8.
  2. That, I am pleased to say, is one problem I don't have. If I buy a gun, I keep it, period. The only exception to that rule occurred when I was about 16 when I traded a Rem 600 carbine in .308 I bought with my own money for a POS Win 70 in 30-06 that turned out to have a crooked barrel. I vowed then and there never to trade again, and I haven't! :D

    My brother ran a Towing Company and some vehicles he towed he would end up owning for charges and storage. In one such vehicle was a old Colt he sold to me for $125.00. It was,after checking, a 1873 SAA all orginal. Now this old girl was ruff but it was ALL ORGINAL. I fell upon hard times and had to sell (I am ashamed to admit for how little). I did make a profit (hell a idiot could have) but I do wish I had that gun back. What stories that old gun could of told.

    Several Pythons and a cased set of Colt Boa's{UNTURNED} comes to mind right off the top of my head.

    There's two, a British Enfield, and a Win. model 50 12ga. Both were in bad shape, and I got both cheap($50 for the Enfield, $89 for the 50). I fixed them up and sold them at a nice profit, but afterward regretted seeing all my work go to someone else.

    A Winchester Model 88 in .308. My first centerfire rifle. I'd love to have it back. A Skeet Grade Model 1100 Remington. Still kicking myself over that one. :mad:

    I "pawned" a S&W 17 to a guy for $175 (what paid for it). Two weeks later he was wanting his money and I didn't have it. That sucked.

    My boss at work brow beat me until I sold him a 4 shot derringer. He made a nice display case for it and sold it to somebody else for the same price rather than offering it back to me.

    I "traded up" to S&W 29's from Ruger Super Blackhawks - wish I had kept one of the Rugers.

    Sorry I didn't buy ...

    There were eight guns in Grandpa's estate and I could have bought seven of them on the payment plan but I ended up with only two. I missed out on:

    Winchester 94 30-30 pre 64
    Colt Woodsman
    M-1 Carbine

    I didn't have any interest in the 7mm Rem Mag.

    I did get two, another grandson got one, and a son-in-law got one.
