    SIG Pro (SP 2340). I though it was a great idea and just had to buy one. The gun never really grew on me so I had to part with it.

    Same here a 1911, too heavy to carry and too expensive to shoot.

    Its my normal pattern, something else catches my eye / interest and so it goes. I still like the guns I bought (I never sell them) but some new capability or collectibility / history factor always takes over.

    Sig 220, never lived up to it's hype. Nothing wrong, just no personality. I like my M&P45, Just as accurate and for me a better point shooter.

    Browning Model 1910 .380 acp

    I really liked the design, but it was too small and not easy to shoot (small sights). I sold it two months after I bought it...

    No real advantage, less accurate than an AR, crappy company, expensive parts, and heavier than an AR.

    Hi Point 9mm carbine. Still a blast to shoot, but I just am not in love with the thing anymore.

    FR-8 Spanish Mauser. Loved it when I first got it, then somehow it wore off.

    Still for sale over on the trading post if anyone wants it.

    Sig 1911. I fired 450 rounds thru that thing trying to force myself to love it. Didn't work, but the GI model ATI I bought I really like.

    475 Wildey Magnum. Cool gun, but not much fun to shoot.

    I usually like most guns that I buy. But my Mosin Nagant is the only one that I could let go and not really care.

    CZ 452 Trainer. Awesome gun, really accurate, but I'm just not feeling it. I doubt I'll ever sell it, and hopefully over time it will grow on me.

    Change of plans has left me with an unfired NDM86 with matching scope and accessories. Lack of long range facilities, and long range abilities will be sending this one to the auction block. I have found a great fondness for sub guns. I have a couple likenesses in semi auto. Ranges are much more available, and accomodating for these.

    I might be shunned for saying this.

    ar-15 I have owned two they were fun for a couple hundred rounds then really could care less afterwards.

    M-14 or actually a M1a too expensive to shoot. The .308 win cartridge is a fine round. I mostly hunt and not at long ranges so there are better cartridges for my needs.

    Glock 17. I wanted one and wanted one. Bought one and quickly lost interest. Once again a great gun not a bad thing to say about it. Just not my style.

    Ruger Redhawk 44 mag. Wanted one for long time, finally got one, can't afford to shoot the dang thing! Now gotta learn to reload, just more expense!!!! I guess I;ll never learn.

    Reloading shouldn't be more expensive. There are up front costs, but components + self assembly definitely saves money per round.

    Most guys will tell you they don't save money, they spend about the same and shoot more. Sounds good to me.
