Please tell me your story and then post the gun at the bottom like I have. That way things will be easy to go over. I look forward to reading the results. Oh, and “I regret every gun I’ve ever sold” is a cop-out, and not a real answer.

Shoot guns long enough and you’re sure to have sold one or two that you really wished you hadn’t. For most of us, money is the number one factor in selling a gun to get a new one. I’ve moved out of my “buy a gun, shoot it for a few months, and then sell her off” phase, but frankly there’s one gun that I got rid of and really wished I hadn’t.

The gun I regret selling the most: XD-45 Tactical
The gun I regret selling the least: Kimber Custom II (at a loss, and good riddance)

Actually years ago traded two away for something different and I wish I had both back. A Colt Python, nickel, four inch barrel. A Smith mod. 29 four inch, counter-sunk cylinder with the deepest bluing I think I have ever seen on a handgun. The last one came in a nice presentation case. What's ironic, I don't even remember what I traded them for....Oh and lest I forget the Colt series 70 govt blued that shot like a dream. Sold it outright. Prolly needed money for something frivilous like food or some such.

i regret guns my FRIEND has sold !! seriously, broke my heart when he let his HK P-7 go, and he now says, " i shoulda listened...".
then there's his S&W 686. i LOVED that gun, and after several years, he just this week got a 586. bet he don't lose this one !!
and i can't forget, his valmet. some kind of sporter as i recall, (valmets' saiga ?) but what a cool gun, got it for a song and probably sold it for one.
but now that i think about it, i did regret selling my first gun ever,a colt SP-1 ( car15 we called 'em) that i bought new back in '83 when i was stationed at camp pendleton. a year or two later i managed to get it back.:D

The gun I regret selling the most: Sig P230SL
The gun I regret selling the least: Sig Pro 2022

I sold the Sig P230 to finance the purchase of an M&P9. The M&P9 is one of my favorite guns, hands down. But I missed the P230 fiercely.

I made up for it by purchasing a P232 from a member on THR. It is decked out with Nill grips (http://i84.photobucket.com/albums/k40/tydephan/Sig_232_on_vest_1_640.jpg) and will never go anywhere.

The Sig Pro 2022 was one of the worst guns I've ever owned. It was chambered in .357sig. The grip on it was huge and awkward. Recoil was terrible. Balance was terrible. I was happy to get rid of it. I traded it for a LNIB Glock 19.

I also regret selling my Walther P22. Will probably buy another one of those one day.

Gun i regret selling most - Colt Govt. Model .380 acp.

I loved this gun and it was dead nuts accurate, but it was a carry piece and because of it's size it didn't have the grip safety like a full size govt model. Finances dictated that I couldn't just retire it to the collection and buy another piece for carry.

Gun I regret selling least - Mini Glock .40.

Bought it to replace the Colt Govt. Model .380 acp. Couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with it so sold it for a loss. Later found out that I had developed a cataract in my right eye and was unconciously shooting right hand, but aiming with my left eye. The cataract had developed so slowly that I didn't even notice it.:banghead:

Back in the mid 70's I traded a pair of 1917 Colts for a Winchester 22-250 Model 70 heavy barrel. :banghead: Probably the worst trade I ever made.

Acouple of years earlier, I needed a deer rifle, so I traded an old beat up model 8 Remington in 25 Remington for a relatively nice Sporterized Krag. I still have the Krag, and it's one of my favorite guns, but I do wish I could have kept the Remington.

I have sold only 2 guns in my lifetime. The first was a Ruger Redhawk .44 mag. That didn't sting too bad because my wife promptly replaced it with a Super Redhawk .44 mag with a scope. The second is the one I really regret. It was a classic Dan Wesson CTG .357 mag with the 4 in. barrel. It was the first gun I ever qualified with when I was a deputy. I have not found a revolver that shot as sweet since. Oh I sold it to a friend who promised that if he wanted to sell it I got first dibs. Well that didn't happen.

My most regrettable was a 5" S&W pre-model number 27 I bought a t a police auction for $120. The muzzle had a small nick in it where for some reason somebody had taken a grinder to it. Sold it at the gun show 2 weeks after buying it for $250. I guess you don't go broke making money but wish I kept it.

I still have the model 19 4" and the model 27-2 with 3-1/2" that I bought at the same auction for $130 and $140 :).

I buy and sell a good bit, and have sold 80 or so personal firearms in the past year. I don't miss any of them, though I occassionally toy with buying another CZ-PCR, until I remember that I didn't care for the long trigger reach. Nice piece otherwise...

I'm into buying .22's these days, and while they are not the gun my .45's are, they are fun in their own right...

H-K P7M8. It shot like a laser beam. I paid $400 for it 20 years ago. I shot it a lot. Over time my interests changed and I needed a rifle........... Traded it for $600 worth of rifle, new Ruger 77 308 with a Redfield scope, ^&*#@! At the time I thought I was quite the gun trader; live and learn. That Ruger is long gone! I still have fond memories of that P7.........

I have sold two had two stolen and gave one to my brother.

The one I sold was a rem 1100 I loved that shotgun. But I had to pay the rent.

The other gun I sold was (I hate to say it) a Lorcin 380 acp. It would jam every other shot if I was lucky enough to get it to go that long. Many times I called it my Single shot semi-auto. I bought it for $99 in CA :what: and sold it for $150 in TX :what:. I did kind of feel bad for taking the guy for that much on it but oh well.

When I got laid off and needed money, I only had two guns at the time. It was a toss-up between a Winchester 94 Trapper AE or a Mossberg 590-A1.

Yep, I sold the Winchester. A year later, Winchester was gone and the price of that Trapper nearly doubled.

Two guns: A WWII Walther P-38 that was one of the most accurate pistols I've ever shot. :what: Sold it because the chamber was so rough that I'd sometimes have to shoot the chambered round to get it out. :eek: Should have lapped the chamber and kept it.

The other was a WWII era Mauser HSc in .32 ACP. Great little carry piece and very accurate. Sear got worn to the point it started doubling, so I traded it to a gunsmith. Should have had him get me a new sear and fix it.

A Sig P239 in 9mm. It was a factory rebuild, loose and sorta dinged up, but it could shoot, and it was a great carry gun. I sold it in hard times. It had to happen, but I regret the hell out of it.

I've replaced almost everyting I was stupid enough to sell off years ago except for two guns that I regreat the most, an HK P9S and a Desert Eagle .357 magnum. When I do replace them I't's going to cost me double what I got for them.

Note to self: never sell another gun. Never, never, never.

I sold My SA-XD .45acp all black service model to a friend at work who had just gotten the shooting bug. That gun never had a failure of any kind. The finish was perfect! The guy Loves it. I could not live without it! Soooo I replaced it finally this week with a new XD .45acp Service model OD green with a black slide. I about ---- when I got it home and discovered it had a couple of machine marks on the very front of the slide. I fixed that with a sharpie pen and some quality gun oil. [sounds crazy, but it worked quite well.] My wife discovered I bought it last night. After the Para-Medics got her breathing again, I think she will be OK.;) I think the XD was the one that pushed the poor woman over the edge-because I purchased three guns in the last four weeks.:evil: They should have never given me a Cabela's credit card:eek: Its the only card I get email statements for, so I can hide the my gun purchases.:D Oh well all is peaceful now. The wife is at work and I am going to shoot my new gun:)

I had an Argentine (made by DWM) M1909 Mauser rifle in new condition. It even had a pretty piece of walnut for a stock.

And, in about 1984, I sold it...

I also had a Chilean (also made by DWM) M1895 Mauser rifle in new condition. I also sold it...

I still kick myself over both...

I was going to say I regretted selling my first Colt 1911 Parkerized Series 80 - but while I miss it, I have two other 1911s (without the gizmo series 80 safety) and I just hope whoever has it is enjoying it.

The gun I actually regret selling was a Taurus PT940 - that gun never jammed, was easy to shoot accurately and with rosewood grips was frankly elegant. The nice thing is that Taurus still makes it, so....

Except for an out-of-box failure with a revolver w/ bad timing (which the dealer took back on another gun right away), I don't really have a 'glad I dumped it' gun.

I don't see where it's a cop-out to say "all of them." If I still had them, I'd have a pretty decent collection.

Smith & Wesson Model 19 Combat Magnum
Colt 70 Series Government model 45acp
Ruger Speed six 2 3/4 .357
Dan Wesson heavy frame 22LR, 6" barrel
Colt New Frontier SAA 22LR
Ruger Old Army 44 BP
Ruger 44 Super Blackhawk 44 mag.
Couple of Ruger 22 Standard Auito's
Ruger Security Six 4", 357, SS
Ruger Blackhawk 357, 4 5/8"
Smith & Wesson 39-2, 9mm
Taurus 38, 4" heavy barrel.
Taurus 66, 7 shot, 357
Taurus 85, concealed hammer, 38 special
Mitchell Arms SAA, 4 5/8" 45 Colt
Kel-Tec P-11, 9mm

I think that's most of them. Doesn't include the long guns of course. But if I had to pick one, it would be Model 19 at the top.

I have only sold one gun, so by default that is the one I regret selling the most.

It was the first gun I bought for myself, with my money. It was a used Taurus Millenium PT140 (pre-pro). It ran fine, but I didn't like the trigger, the accuracy, or the width, and .40 was too expensive to plink with.

I didn't really sell it, I traded it for a NIB Argentine hipower. Now I consider the hipower the first gun I bought, since the trade was even and no money was exchanged.:o

I regreted not keeping the PT140 once but then I remembered how much I disliked it. It looked just like this one:

Rifle = Ruger Mini 14 I bought 76 or 77 for $159
Shotgun = USMC Ithica 12GA of WWII ventage bought '70 for $75
Hangun, Autoloader = Colt 1911 70 Series I bought in '77 for $300
Handgun, Revolver = Colt King Cobra 6" bought in '87 for $375

The Mini 14 I really do not regret selling except for what it would sell for now, but the others I would dearly love to replace if I could stand the price. I have wondered on occasions over the years what the old Ithica would be worth. I loved the hold the trigger and pumping it to fire w/o having to release the trigger.

Gun I regret selling the least: SIG P239

Didn't really fit my hand that well, its sale funded a Browning Hi-Power, which was later traded for a SIG P228--the best handgun I have ever shot.

Gun I regret selling the most: 4" S&W 686-4

I don't really regret selling this gun as it was bit barrel heavy for me, but of all the guns I have sold this is the only one I have considered buying back. I sold it to a friend of my father-in-law and he said I could buy it back anytime I wanted.

In its place I have purchased a 4" S&W 586 which the seller had cut down the lug. It looks like a model 29, is much more comfortable than the full lug 686 and is just as accurate.

My Ruger P90. It was the first pistol I bought when I trurned 21, and I shot it so much that I realized I needed to downgrade to something of smaller caliber. I traded it for my G17, which was substantially cheaper to shoot. That .45 is the only one I've ever parted with.

Without a doubt a HK91 I traded back in the early 90's for 5 handguns. I left the rifle at the dealer while he ordered my handguns. Two days later the feds raided him. Two years later I ended up with a check from the Illinois attorney gerneral for $64.00. I lost about $1500 on the "deal". I never did find out if he did jail time or the extent of the charges.

Oh, my stupidest handgun sale was getting rid of my .44 Super Redhawk when I was strapped for cash.

My ASP S&W Md. 39-2. I did not care for the guttersnipe sights, but should have kept it because of it's rareness.

A series one Kimber Ultra Carry. It was very accurate. Never a glitch. Traded it for a rifle that I traded 3 mos later for an AR. sob.

Never sold a gun that I owned.

I find it very interesting that in the auto-loader subforum there is a very high rate of regretting selling revolvers.

I burned myself(took a fat loss) when I sold my S&W 66 357mag w/ 2.5" barrel. I replaced it years later with a 66 w/ 3" barrel(I got lucky)!

An HK P9S. I have since replaced all of the guns that I have regretted selling, which is almost all of them, and the P9S will cost me twice as much as I originally paid for it to replace it. But, replace it I will.

An XD .45ACP tactical. I had the slide duracoated, and it shot good. Sold it to buy a rifle I don't even own anymore! I have an SA 1911 now, so I miss the XD less than I used to, but still.....

Have an Ruger GP100 I hardly ever shoot anymore, and am thinking of selling it. I do have a feeling, though, if I did.....

I have never sold a gun, but I did sort of give one as a gift/trade and I regret it. It was my first K31 rifle and I owned it for just a few hours before my neighbor tried to say the M1903 he gave me a few years previous in exchange for some work I did on his house was not a payment and was a loan (:rolleyes:). I was showing the K31 to him when he brought that up, so I just said, "here, it's yours" and gave him my new K31 to shut him up. I never even got to fire that sucker.

My second K31 turned out to be damn nice too though and shoots like a charm.

Two: My Glock 29 and 30.
They did not fit my mitt and were safe queens. I traded them both away.
Now, I wish I had, at least, the G30 back!! :(

I traded off a 629 (probably a -3) for a 486 PC (how's that for a lousy trade?) I recently got a new (to me) one that has the S&W Combat grips and while I couldn't hit the side of a barn standing inside with my old one this new one is a shooter. Another plus is while searching through an old ammo box I found the original target grips plus a set of Pachmayers that I had for the old one. I used to miss the old one, but not anymore. :)

2nd Gen G19

My sister loves it, but one of these days I need to buy a new G19 and trade her for it. She doesn't care finger-groove or not.

Beretta mini cougar in .40 S&W. I purchased it from an individual before I had read about gun laws or procured a CCW.

It was a great shooter for me. Alas, I thought I might have done something illegal. I sold it back a few months later for the same price I paid. $400.

Now they are rare and more expensive. I need a hanky now :cuss:
