Default The gun that got away

So how many guns do you regret not buying at the time, and are no longer available?

A new in the box Wincherster M70 featherwieght in 6.6X55 Sweedish Mauser. I had it in my hands and hesitated when it was on the block at auction. I may see one again and get a chance to buy it. But I have wished I'd bought it several times since.

It hasn't been discontinued but I had a chance to get a brand new S&W .357 snubby (exact model escapes me) about a month ago for $250and I passed it up. Supposedly he just wanted to get rid of a few and was selling them at a loss or so a friend's dad who knows the owner of the shop was telling me.

The reason I passed it up?

I didn't want to go 15 minutes out of my way on the way back home for the weekend.

Boy do I regret that...

You probably just saved yourself a trip. I don't see any gunshop selling S&W for almost $100.00 below wholesale! I'd say your friend or his dad was mistaken on the price.

None really. For the most part if I know of one I want, I'l save and have it shorty thereafter. It's the ones I now wish I'd gotten but at that time didn't have any interest in them.

Ruger #1 .257 Roberts
M700 in .300 H&H
Ruger Hawkeye

well, ok there's a couple I knew about but when I decided to get them, they were gone:

Ruger SBH Hunter in 41 magnum
Ruger SBH Bisley hunter in .41 magnum
Ruger SBH Bilsey Hunter in .45 Colt
(I only got the standard 45 Colt Hunter)
