    I have a few guns that I've sold and regret selling.
    I bet you've never heard that before;)

    So, now I'm watching the used gun cases to try and replace them.
    Two that I'm looking for are SIG 239 9mm and a S&W 625 .45acp.
    I looking for the 625 with a 3" barrel.

    I think maybe selling isn't a good thing.:rolleyes:

    Anybody else looking to replace what you sold?

    I've only sold one pistol. Now I want it back. Ruger Blackhawk. Live and learn. Now all I will do is add to the collection.

    I buy and sell handguns(and rifles) all the time. I should keep everyone of them and hoard them, I guess. But, I don't.

    Life is just to short to regret selling guns. Buy what you like, if it doesn't fit the bill,sell it. That's my motto.

    I probably should hang onto everything. At the rate that I'm going, I'm never going to catchup with Tamara.. :D :D

    I want a P220 back I sold to a friend. And for some strange reason I want that P99 back, even though I couldn't shoot it worth a sheep.

    I regret selling almost every gun I ever sold. Most of the good ones have been replaced with like models. One that I had forgotten about was the Sig 220 I once owned. It was a terrific gun, but I doubt I will buy another one. I found it very difficult to shoot because it was my first double action auto. It also had the Europeon mag relase on the bottom of the grip frame which I didn't care for.

    I very seldom sell a gun. Almost never. I think I have sold two guns in the last 15 years. One was a total POS that I bought because the scope on it was worth more than the asking price. I tried the rifle, it wouldn't shoot so I sold it and kept the Leupold Vari-X III scope that was on it. The other was an '06 that a guy gave me because he owed me money and couldn't pay me. I already owned 4-5 rifles in that caliber and all were better than that one.

    All the time. Was also looking for a 625 S&W I sold (it was a 3 inch). However now I want it in 4 inch (hint, hint). IDPA rules backed down to 4 inch in a revolver the first of Oct.

    For the past few days I've been thinking about buying a Steyr Scout in .308. I want one really badly but will have to sell some to buy one at this time. Between this post and C.R. Sam's regarding the S&W 57 in .41 mag. (reminded me how much I miss the one I sold), my schedule for getting the Scout has just been placed well into the future. I ain't selling anything if I don't have to!

    Been there, and it stinks!

    The only one I really, really, really regret was a beautiful Colt Diamondback I traded for a S&W 67, back when stainless revolvers were the new deal and I just had to have one.

    Did I mention I really regret that one?

    I seem to be the one among my friends who does sell and buy more, it seems to be a bit addictive, the wheeling and dealing. My rule now is when I sell I upgrade or get something I want or need more, then I don't usually regret the deal...tom

    I most regret selling the following:

    Tokarev SVT-40
    Daewoo K2
    Baikal Makarov .380
    S&W .44 spl. stainless, 6-inch barrel, adj. sights. (don't recall model number)
    MAK-90
    Glock 20
    Enfield #4 mk2, micrometer sights.

    I hope to replace them, eventually.

    Sold a DCM M1D built on a Winchster -13 receiver.

    Hated to see it go, but it was for SO much money...bought six new guns (that I didn't feel bad shooting) and a Dillon 500B...

    Still iffy on that one. Sigh.

    Not only replaced ones I have sold, I actually bought the same gun back several times. I just don't have the money to acquire a large collection but do enjoy shooting a wide variety of firearms. What ever fancy strikes me, I go for. If the government is keepinigtrack, I must be on THE list. I have purchased at least 100 firearms in the past 10 years but only own two.:banghead:

    The gun I wish I had never sold was the first handgun I ever owned. It was a .45 Colt Commander. NIB was $100.00.


    **sigh** If I only knew then what I know now.

    I just learned that a 1911 I sold to a private party is now sitting in the dealer's case at the gunshop where I originally purchased it new. It's very possible that I will buy it from the same guy twice.

    There's some irony in there somewhere.

    When I was younger,I would buy a gun hang on to it for awhile.
    When money would get tight I'd sell it.A little older and wiser now.
    Rebuilding collection.Investment in guns,like stocks,is for
    the long term.

    Three times in my married life I have built up an awesome collection. Good stuff and quite a bit of it. And three times finances have forced me to clear it out to keep the lights on and food on the table. I'm just starting to rebuild for #4 but I'm appalled at how some of the prices have jumped. That and I'm finding it a lot harder to spend the money i used to shell out without a second thought.

    I guess I really am getting old.

    THe only guns I've sold or traded away have been guns that for one reason or another didn't work for me.

    I sold a Smith 686 about a year ago. Bought the same gun back about 6 months later. It really wasn't sold (in effect), just rented out. The guy I sold it to and bought it back from was amused. It worked out for both of us.

    I wish that I still had most of the guns that I have sold over the years. Would love to be able to buy them back for what I sold them for years ago. There are a few that I don't miss though.

    I don't sell many of my guns. But when I do, I don't regret it at all. I sold it for a reason.
