Let me start.

It will be my first gun, a satin nickel Colt Government 45 cal series 70 with blued parts for contrast. It was even the cover of one gun magazine in the early 80's.

I had it from 1984 to 1993 when I could not say no to a person I was asking a favor from. The favor had a higher value than the pistol but I still regret letting go.

How about you guys and gals?

Havent sold it yet , but I'm sure I'll regret it if I do
an ordinary CZ85 bigay ng cz/pb dionisio
I cant remember how many people na tumawad dun
Di ko alam kung anong magic meron sa kanya , hindi sumasala
akala ko tuloy magaling lang ako pero , yung baril pala yun
Still thinking about it
Mas mahilig ako sa pera keysa sa baril

Wow I have a long list of those!

Here they are in order of merit:

1. Colt Gov't. 1911 - Got it bnew/unfired for the price of a Norinco. Sold it last year.

2. G19 - Carried it for 3 years. My first gun. Won my first IDPA medal with it. Sold it to get a G34.

3. G26 - sold it to a good friend who won't sell it back to me. Hindi pala good.

4. M4 - It was sucking up too much money. Wife threatened to shove it up my...

Other honorable mentions:

Ruger GP-100
NAA .22mag
Springfield 1911

My 2nd Gen GLock 19. The saying that you don't know what you've lost until you lose it is true. I really regretted having sold that gun!!!!

None.

Guns are like candy bars - wonderful when you are with one, but there are many other really good ones so try as many as you can.

My all original, very good condition, original finish ( parkerized na medyo green pa) Remington- Rand 1911a1 which was given to me by my father (as pamana, heirloom quality talaga!) good, very visible markings on the slide and frame.good barrel condition. I sold it , kasi its "very old" and i wanted a "modern" one. I deeply regret the day that i sold it...

My first gun was a G19 with OD frame...I sold it to buy something else, that I didn't even keep. :faint: Also had sentimental value because it was given to me by my dad.

I kinda regret the day I sold an LC Smith side x side 12ga shotgun. It wasn't so bad as I got it for a song and had no sentimental value whatsoever. The buyer was paying a hefty premium so my head prevailed over my heart.

It wasn't my personal gun but the family's. My mothers side of the family had a original Thompson "Tommy Gun" with violin case and everything including multiple 100 round drums and original bill of sale from 20 or 30's not really sure now.

I was able to borrow it one year for Halloween when I was 12 or 13. I even have photos of me somewhere with it dressed as a gangster from that era. When my Grandmother passed away about 7 years ago her 4 boys couldn't come to grips with who should have it and sold it for just $12,000.

Here in Washington you can't even own a Full-Auto unless it had been grandfathered as that one had, the worst part for me was that I never got to shoot it and would have loved to keep it in the family.:crying:

hmmm. id like to share. but i cant recall if i did regret selling or letting go. if i did that it must have a valid reason - sometimes to upgrade, sometimes to downgrade, sometimes to change hobby, sometimes to return to the hobby, sometimes when there is money sometimes when there is none.

gulo noh?

I will forever regret selling my .22 beretta pistol(it had 1956 stampings), it was a hand me down from my dad, it had to go due to stupid immigration issues.it was a tough little solid gun, that was ultrareliable and was in such good orig state.

My dad has the same gun, and it has NEVER had a failure to fire or to eject...unlike his Walther P22...but that's a story for another time.:supergrin:

I like my 1911 GoldCup. While its a single stacker, it was very reliable and accurate. My dream is an HK MP5.

I sold a Colt .45 Kit Gun finished by a Florida gunsmith named Giles. These guns were sold to smiths to be final fitted and were as accurate as all get out.I kick myself on a regular basis. I might be able to get it back at a much inflated price, but I'll chalk it up to the price of doing business
