Guns Like firearms themselves, there's a wide variety of opinions on what's the best gun.

I let a good friend talk me out of a Kimber Custom Classic-left handed-22 Hornet in 1982. I have been through a half dozen Hornet's since then. I have cussed him under my breath ever since(just kidding). I have never been happy with any other Hornet since. Man them older Kimber's are really something. Tom.

One that I regret was my Browning Abolt 30/06 with a BOSS. It was the first BOSS that was the muzzlebreak. Shot my biggest deer (still to this date) with it and it almost made me go deaf. Sold it a month later. That following January, Browning revealed the BOSS CR, or non-muzzlebrake BOSS. The gun shot great, and I love the memory of that buck. Wish I would have held out a bit. But no matter, its replaceable, and I made $300 on the thing with the scope anyway.

I can't possibly remember all the guns I've bought and sold but one that I regret sticks out.

It was a custom .223 on a Sako AII action. It had a blonde, tiger's eye maple stock with rosewood endsa and a Douglas barrel, Leupold 3-9 VX-II, Timney trigger. Just a beutiful custom gun. I bought it for $425 because that's what the guy thought it was worth.


So then I went to college and I was so poor and in debt that I had to sell it and i sold it for $1200 on consignment without the scope.

Oh man I really loved that gun.

What sucks the most is when you figure a model will be made forever,
and you'll just get another one someday..... only to find it discontinued

I do not even remember the make or model of it, but my first rifle/shotgun was a .22/.410 over under that I learned to shoot with and I wish I still had. It had been my grandfathers gun, so a classic. Mbr father traded it off about 10 years ago. I really wish I had that classic little shooter back, as it would have been great to teach my baby daughter to shoot with it.
No other gun regrets.

Red Lion..I know exactly what you are talking about. I had a Savage 22/410 when I was akid, traded it for a SXS 12 ga. Just recently bought a Stevens in nice shape to replace it, 45 yrs. later. Had to hunt hard to find a nice one.
Most all guns that I have gotten rid of were used to trade up for something else. Gotta admit, I do wish I had most of them back, too.

I've sold a bunch but can only think of two that I would like to have back....

1: a FIE SxS 20ga with 26" IC/M barrels, I killed a heck of a lot of pheasants with that gun over several really good dogs, I wish I had never sold it.

2: A browning Abolt stainless stalker in 338 RUM with burris Euro black diamond 3-12 scope. It was a sweet shooter and didn't kick bad at all due to the muzzle brake, I sold it just after I got married in a fit of practicality. I figured with the 300 win and the 375 h&H I didn't need the 338 RUM. Now I've been pining for a new one every since.

I'm about my guns like I am about my guitars. I just cannot let go of a single one.

But fortunately so far I haven't been in a bad enough money cruch to start selling things for whatever I could get.

The only gun I've ever regretted selling, was a Ruger Blackhawk in 45 Colt/45 ACP, but, I traded it for a Stainless Super Blackhawk in .44 Mag, so, it worked out ok.
