Only gun I ever sold was a 2nd gen Glock19 and even though I was more than happy with its replacement, I sometimes wish I held on to it cause it never failed once after 1100 rounds. My father's biggest regret is the 6" Stainless Colt Python he sold many years ago.

What is yours?

Kahr K9. I am now looking for a Kahr MK9, but probably wouldn't be if I still had the K9.

I've only sold three in my life... I sold a GP-100 which my Dad bought back for me several years later, sold a 700 ADL 7mm mag which I sold with no regret, and I sold a pristine 700 BDL 30-06... The BDL '06 I shoulda kept because it was dirt cheap and perfect from a desperate seller, and I sold cause my car needed tires.. woulda coulda shoulda..

I didn't sell it but it was stolen from me by a family memberand given away, while I was in the Navy.

1886 lever action Winchester .33 caliber. Came from a Mormon family when they settled Salt Lake city.

Only one, a minty W. German P228. Will get another someday. Everything else I sold was because I just didn't care for the gun.


Oh, one more, a first gen 22/45. Wouldn't mind having that one back.

None. Everything I ever sold was carefully calculated and either sold for profit or because I did not like it. Fortunately I have never had to sell anything against my will.

For me it was my Ruger Super Redhawk.
I was injured on the job, my wife was involved in a car accident and 6 months pregnant at the time. So neither one of us was able to work. Did what we could, sold all of my guns and the Ruger was the last one I let go of.

All of them....wish I had every one I owned over the years. Being from Ohio they were all shotty's...but I had some dandy's. Mostly 1100's...870 Wingmasters a few 11-87 premiers...and a Winchester Model 12. Once I got into bowhunting...I did less and less upland game hunting...and the shotguns began to go. So did most of the game due to coyote and the lack of land due to development.
Only have one shotty now...and that's an express....hardly the craftsmanship of my early 80's Wingmasters...1100's...and premiers. The rest of my guns I have managed to hang on to...so I can't say that it's all that bad.

Several guns that I let go simply to fund other projects.... HK P7M13, HK P7K3, HK P9S, but I really regret letting go of a Bren Ten Marksman Special Match .45acp it had the box, papers, 3 working mags....a really cool gun.

Edit: The one that I truly regret the most, I went through the Police Academy with a S&W 686, I was going to be carrying an auto at the department I was going to work for and I had to sell it to make a car payment while I was waiting to start work. I know I can never get that one back, but I think I am going to go on the search for one from the same circa 1983 manufacture.

I agree with this!

I don't generally care. They are all just objects, that don't carry on with you, when you die. Like anything else, women, cars, cash and fine booze. Enjoy what you get to play with at whatever given moment and never look back in sorrow.

There are quite a few I wish I still had. My Weatherby rifles, Colt Gold Cup, S&W 581, Desert Eagle and a Colt SP-1 are the ones that come to my mind without dwelling on it. I'll probably replace most of them in time. For this reason I'm now very reluctant to let any go.

07-14-2012, 04:45
None really when they got sold I sold them on purpose to get RID of them to either make $$ for something I wanted more OR to trade directly for/on something I wanted more..the only 2 regrets I have are selling 2 of them too early one was a Colt Mustang II that I bought for around $250-300 in around 1996/97 or there abouts wish id waited till it was worth more to get rid of it..same deal with my Ruger mini 14...got a good trade for it but id gotten several factory 30 round magazines with it when I bought it back in the mid 1980's...Didnt mind seeing the rifle go so much as its pretty much just a "range toy" here in PA and at the time I wanted a nice shotgun so it got traded for a Remington 1187...but I DO regret not waiting a few years then unloading those factory mags for a MINT!

I dont miss a single gun ive ever sold though...If I was gonna miss it id never have sold it in the first place...

Two guns:

1. A Remington 552 .22lr semi-auto rifle. Sold it when I was in college. Reason: I was an idiot.

2. S&W 686, 6" barrel, bought brand new in 1984. First centerfire pistol I ever bought. Sold it a year and a half later. Reason: To pay for an engagement ring. I miss the revolver but do not regret the reason for which I sold it.

I had an H&K USP40 I stupidly sold because it wouldn't cycle wolf ammo.

Oh, one more, a first gen 22/45. Wouldn't mind having that one back.

Well, I've replaced the 22/45 with a 22/45 MKIII with a blank steel LCI slot filler and full set of Volquartsen internals (including MKII parts to get rid of the stupid magazine disconnect safety).

Also picked up a nice W. German Sig P228 CPO, which will be back from the Sig custom shop this afternoon.
