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.

    I just recently bought a 9mm...

    ...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

    Biggest mistake I made in the last ten years.

    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. :eek:

    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:

    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.
