    I’m with you I got offered what I thought was stupid money for my refinished Kobra Carry so I sold it and I miss it and have wanted many times to buy another. I keep letting other things get back in line in front of it.

    It was a Nighthawk Talon 38 Super that I sold to chase something that I no longer remember. @Addicted2gunz was kind enough to sell it back when I came crawling back.

    P239 SAS in .357 Sig

    Light and compact carry gun with a phenomenal trigger, felt extremely natural in the hand and I was able to punch out bullseyes at 15yd+ offhand. It was unreal for a gun of this size.

    I loved the massive fireballs this thing spit out, but I was also keenly aware of what a hindrance that muzzle flash could be in a self-defense situation, as well as the high cost of ammo in comparison to 9mm or .45

    Someone offered me exactly what I paid for it, and I sold it off. Instantly regretted it. Still do to this day.

    Mine was a real Winchester 94 lever action in .22Mag. Most accurate rimfire rifle I ever owned. Was made before it became Winchester Repeating Arms.

    A Yost 1* Springfield and a Colt 1911 with serial number 11,*** which made it one of the very first ever made. Im a freaking idiot for parting with both

    Over the past 30 some odd years, and a few even one's too, I've built somewhere around 20 1911s. Never built one for anyone else but me. But all of them eventually got sold, more often than not to fund a "better idea". Now, as I get older, I wish I had some of them back, just to see how I progressed through the art and science of building a custom 1911.

    Recently I had just such an opportunity. In the local pawn shop and in the case they have a pistol I immediately recognized. A Biachi Cup pistol I built somewhere around 1994. Snatched that right up.

    Only gun I have ever sold that I regretted selling was a factory built Blue Box Colt M45A1.

    As a general rule, I try my best to stay focused on what’s ahead of me in life. But looking back (like all of us) I have a regret or two. This early S&W 686 (2.5” barrel) fits the bill.

    I’ve owned pistols from Chambers, Rogers, Rodgers, Tripp, Nighthawk, Wilson, Miller,....,and s few others.

    There has been only one gun, from one builder that I kinda miss. It was a bobtailed lightweight frame, commander slide, coned barrel 38 Super from Joe. I did sell that pistol to help fund the Triple Crown I bought from Joe. I dearly love this pistol, but I also miss the other.

    I did not post a pic of that bobtailed Chambers because another member, JayDoc owns it now.

    Here is the Triple Crown, have not, will not sell it. Will be the last to go.

    My T/C Contender. Fitted in a oversized briefcase, there was one frame, three grips, two scopes and various barrels ranging from 22 LR to 444 Marlin. Used for target shooting to hunting wild boar.

    There was this one that I didn't think I would miss, but I do. I could replace it with another affordable one, but I won't.....

    Yeah, my hardchrome Browning Hi Power, CZ Shadow (sold to buy the Shadow 2 but had to admit I like this one better), Ruger Mini 14. I know there are more but I don't want to look too hard. It might change my mood... 866840502.jpg 1355883428.jpg 511506143.jpg

    When I was about 13 my dad bought me a Remington model 600 in .244 Remington. It wouldn't shoot the heavier bullets worth a hoot and I had to shoot every deer with it 3 times to keep it down. Finally missed 3 deer in one day with it (scope separated inside) so I finally traded it off on a Remington 700 BDL. That gun would be worth a lot of money today because it was a pre 6mm caliber. Oh well.............
    Money got tight one time so I sold a pre-64 Winchester 30-30 with a fairly low serial number. Haven't sold a gun since.

    Nobody ever gives me free guns. :(

    On the other hand, I've never gotten rid of a gun so I have nothing to regret in that regard. However, I have bought a few that I regret buying.

    I had a lot of recovery time after a hip replacement and started thinking about pistols I had wanted in the past, one being a Wilson Combat Professional .45, so I started looking for one. Found the one below being sold as “used” but when I got it it was obvious in was just a trade in that was never shot.


    I had owned a WC CQB Compact for a number of years so I wanted to duplicate that pistol with the Professional. Had WC black the frame, added a S&A magawell and it looks just like the CQB Compact.

    I shot the Professional a few times but could never get attached to it, so I sold it. Now I wish I had it back.
