Cheap Remington 700, SPS in 300WSM that I pillar bedded and epoxy beaded the action. Epoxy beaded the first 4” of the bbl. Had a muzzle brake installed and that damn 700 shot sub 1” groups with 180 Accubonds consistently. It sat in the safe for a few years and decided I needed to make room for another rifle. MISTAKE! Oh well. MTG

I actually need to sell at least 100. I just don't have the time and energy to load for all of them anymore. Life was much simpler when I only owned a few dozen.

Exactly... Mine was a colt commander in 38 super. Same era. Mint condition with two spare mags. My biggest gun selling regret but divorce does those things......

Got my model 28 Highway Patrolman in around 1977, best guess. Sweet gun and still in great shape.

Better yet, I never sold it, but GAVE it away a couple years ago! But then again, it was to my Daughter and she would have gotten it when I passed anyway.

She carries a Ruger LCR .357 Mag in her car. (only gun she owned) Got tired of dragging it from car to house every day. You can guess the rest......
Dad...would you have another gun I could just keep in my house? Wanted to keep ammo the same for both her guns. So goodbye S&W Model 28. LOL

I paid at total of $600.00 when I made that last payment and was finally able to take it home.

I cannot imagine why I then sold it for what I paid shortly after Reagan left office. The really sad part was that George Bush very quickly outlawed their import (due to their being dangerous weapons of war), and their prices instantly skyrocketed. After that, I don't think you could buy a used one for less than $3,000.00.

Similar story for my Polytech Legends AK-47. I think I paid about $400.00 for it. I sold it a few years later for just a little more than that, and then their import into the country was banned, and today they go for several thousand dollars, just like the H&K 91. They are reputed to have been the highest quality AK variant ever to be imported into the country.
.

I still have my HK 91 I bought in 82. Mine was $575 new in the box.

A Browning Nomad 22 semi-auto that I traded to a friend in 1969! The little Browning was a very accurate pistol and a lot of fun to shot and is presently worth about 8 X what I paid for it. While the little handgun I traded for is very quality……I can’t hit a Bull Elephant is the a$$ with it outside of 25 yards! memtb

The only gun I ever regretted selling was a 1987 Browning Buckmark 22 slab side pistol. I bought it new and was the sweetest shooting pistol I ever owned. I have another one now but it wasn’t purchased new and wasn’t my first baby!

Colt King Cobra Stainless 6" .357 It was a mistake. Bought it day I got out of boot camp. It would stack full power loads center target. Don't think I even touched the sights. Why o why.
