Have you ever sold a gun and then later bought/traded it back?

I had sold this .22 rifle a year ago and after it passed through several hands, now I bought it back from a different person. I've been missing it since selling it and now I swear I'll never sell it again. :D

boy I thought everyone bought and sold the same gun at least once or twice in their careers. I thought I invented "sold cheap, bought dear" the first time I bought back one that I had sold earlier.

When I was stationed in Germany in 95 I sold a Walther PP .32 and a S&W m-19 to an airforce buddy. We are now both retired and living in Alabama. Last year I talked him into letting me buy them back. He had both guns for ten years and never shot them.

...and the guy that sold it to me contacted me saying he wants it back. I feel a little obligated.

Yes. I sold an AR-15 to a guy at work. Two years later, missing it (I had built it myself from a kit), I asked him if he would sell it back to me.

I don't think he shot it at all.

I have done that as well. Too many toys and not enough money to go around for all of them. :D

I sold a pistol I really liked to thin the herd when I enherited some others. I'd buy it back in a heartbeat! He's a good friend that takes care of his guns. So far he hasn't given me the opportunity. So, to answer your question. NO. But I would.

Actually, this is the only gun "buy-back" program that remotely makes sense to me.

Yes. A Colt Army Special in .41 Long Colt. It was my favorite revolver ever, despite the obsolete ammo.
And...I'd buy it back once more. :o

I received my uncle's H&R Topper model (.22 Hornet and 20 guage single shot barrels) via Santa one year as a kid... my first gun, actually. Traded it to my older brother a few years later, then ended up swapping (or paying?) him for it a couple of years after that.

I'll never let it go again!

Yep - 1920 Mosin Nagant 91/30 that I didn't have a chance to fire before I sold it. Quite accurate, and grand fun to shoot/reload for, don't plan on letting this one run again!:cool:

...when I really like one, I always try for a first right of refusal on the dang thing...

Yes, once.

For my GP100. I bought it new a couple years ago, sold it to a friend, and bought it back two weeks ago right before he was going to trade it in!

I had a blue steel Vaquaro that I sold to a friend and a firestar that I traded to him for a S&W 640. After a few years of not being impressed with the smith I traded it back to him for the Vaquaro.

Just an S&W 36-1.
