  • what one gun, do you regret most for getting rid of?

    for me, it was a sig sauer all stainless 45 acp. With all the weight of being a stainless pistol, you could double tap a target, and the bullets would almost always be nearly touching. it was the best shooting pistol I've ever owned. wish I could find another..........

      Oh man.... my life is a list of guns I should have kept.

      A S&W 696...5 shot .44SPEC 3" comes to mind as being something I should have held onto.

      I sold a matched set of Kimbers in .308WIN and .22LR that I kinda wish I'd kept as well.

      A German Sig225 that shot better than it should have...a Euro one with a heel release. Should have kept that too.

      The long sad list goes on and on...

          Hmmm.... my grandpas single shot lever action 20ga Ithaca. Being young and dumb and chasing something bigger and better at 17... <sigh>
          A perfect example of an H&K P7 PSP,
          A Savage 24F .223 over 12ga,
          a stainless mini-14 in .223 that shot incredibly well, best mini I ever shot.
          My Stainless JM stamped 1895G 45/70 (who knew Marlin was going to sell out and be lost forever? Thought I'd always be able to get one at a reasonable price.
          An LC Smith side by side 12ga serial number 3
          An original A-1 AR-15 without the forward assist.
          A 4" Colt King Cobra .357
          The list goes on...
          I'm kinda with Hodgeman on this one...

            A pair of Colt Pythons - 1 was 6in Blue - 1 was 6in Nickle / 357 mags!

            Maybe my first Rem 12 ga 870 - lots of memories - paid $50.00 for it NIB from a guy that needed some cash!

                An 'old' Browning A5 mag 12 gauge shotgun. I did not have much use for it in AK so it went away.

                  Ugh.... I hate to think about it. Actually a collection of guns, all pre-64 M70's.

                  I worked lots of odd jobs as a youngster, accumulating a substantial savings. A family friend was a collector. I've talked about him before- he was the guy with all the classic double rifles. He convinced me that the recently discontinued M70 was going to be a hot collector, and that I should buy odd calibers NIB, and leave them in their boxes without handling or shooting. He'd find the rifles and buy them, and I'd reimburse him. Accumulated 8 of them over a couple of years including 7.65 Argentine, 7x57, Hornet, 375.

                  About 10 years later my neck swelled in rut followed by marriage, kids and college. Paid a big chunk of the first college degree and two babies selling them one by one, and no regrets for the results. But man, I still wish there had been some way to hang onto them.

                    I regret getting rid of a couple of guns over the years; the first was a High Standard "Double 9" 22lr/22mag; the second was a walther PPK and the other was an original CZ75 1st generation made in the Chec republic "cold war era". Can't replace any of them for what I got them for.

                      I've only sold one gun, a LH Remington 788 in .308. Bought it for the action, never cared much for it. It didn't fit me well and seemed to kick me more than and other rifle I had. I needed gas $ to jump start my life, my life has been on track ever since so I guess it worked out. I've never noticed another one for sale when I had $ in my pocket.

                      I have several guns in the safe that I need to sell before we make our big move. Just can't bring myself to do the deed.

                        Super Redhawk 454 casull. The only pistol I ever owned. Needed the cash though at the time.

                            I had an old Savage 110 lefty bolt gun in .06 with a 5 digit serial number.

                            I was a dern fool for selling it.
