    Ever let one get away that you regret now?

    I do a lot of trading/selling/loosing money and the only one I really think I should have kept was my Springfield TRP.

    Just a good well made gun.

    How about you?

    Yep,......about five years ago I picked up a Les Baer TRS.
    It had been hard chromed AND bobtailed by Virgil Tripp.

    I traded it off when I get into bolt rifles.

    Honestly, out of all the ones I have sold I miss my CDP Pro II the most...

    I'll bet that one still bothers you.
    I don't think I would have done that one.

    I've kicked myself in the nards a few times.
    Oh well, it could be done again, but I got a smokin deal on it when I bought it.
    $1250 cash, and I had all the paperwork for it.

    The one I regret selling is my SA Mil-Spec. It was my first 1911 and although I own higher end guns now, its what got me started in the right direction. Even though it was my first, I studied everything in detail, did some modifications to it and I never once had a single issue. The drop-in bevaertail is kinda gaudy but it worked for me at the time when I had no jig and very little gunsmithing tools. The Houge rubber grips would be gone by now as well since I got past that stage too. If I could track it down and the current owner didn't ruin it, I'd buy it back as quickly as I could. Hell, even if they ruined it I would buy it back and restore it.

    Serial number was photo shopped over long ago. :lol: I did strip some parts off it before trading it in which I've either passed down to my Regent or have sitting in my parts bin.

    I have not regretted selling any 1911. I have regretted selling a few Glock 19s though. And then I always end up buying one back.

    I sold a basic 870 to a friend recently. He wanted it more than I did, and will probably use it more. I felt okay about it because if there's ever an easy gun to talk oneself into buying a replacement, it's that one. :lol:

    Yep, every time I sell a G-19, I end up with another.

    My biggest mistake, was selling a second generation (1937) Colt SAA 7 1/2" blued in 45 Colt. It just had "the" thing about it, and was in 95% condition.

    Threads like these that make me hold on to my Glock 17 Gen4 which was my first ever real handgun. I had owned 22lr hand gun for a while but the Glock was first one I got my self in a real caliber. I know the moment I sell it I regret it even thought its taken a decent amount of trouble shooting and money to get running 100%.

    I do miss my first hand-gun as well, but I would never buy another.

    It was a Arcus 94. Browning Hi-Power clone, I need another Hi-Power at some point.

    I had a absolutely LNIB 4" Nickle Colt Diamondback .22. As it just sat around doing nothing, I shot it once a few times and went out and purchased another mint one blued to use as a shooter because I just couldn't bear shooting the nickle one, plus it cost me an arm and a leg. Sadly, I ended up selling both and buying a Ruger MkIII instead to shoot. Boy, it was hard to sell the nickle Diamondback, In the end I just had too damn many guns and wouldn't have shot them anyway :lol:

    Cool, I found an old picture on an extinct Photobucket account that I thought went extinct since I switched to Zenfolio. Even taken with my Canon Powershot A710...Oh yea, those tiny spots are raindrops..

    I regret pretty much everything I've ever traded or sold out....but made sense at the time.
