    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)

    Probably a Colt Sistema or Squire Bingham .22lr that was very accurate and had a nice stock.

    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 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.
