Back in 1967 I had the opportunity to purchase an M1A2 carbine for $100.00 and I passed on it because we just had our first child and I had to put the money elsewhere, I thought. I kick myself ever time I think about it. OUCH!!!:bang:
I had greatly regretted not getting a certain Iver Johnson marketed .22 which I wanted as a kid that looked like the M1 Carbine. Then, I found this brand new Chiappa at a gun shop and I'm just smitten with it after about 500 rounds. Only problem, it's eatting up my stash of CCI ammo.
Same here, the Ruger No.1 is a beautiful rifle, one I should've bought when they were a lot less than now. I just never had enough money to buy one. I faithfully watered the money tree every day and it did no good
Sold and traded some I should have kept. Kept some I should have sold or traded. Buying and building a few as time passes. Selling several as the local gun shop makes room. I can't think of anything I want or need at the moment.
I was wondering when someone would start a topic on this. Here's the list.
1.) 4" Colt Officers model 38 Heavy barrel for $300. Had slow timing but was otherwise alright. Everything felt right about it when I held it in my hand. Had plenty of time and money to get it but I just kept staring at it being all indecisive like....never again..T_T
2.) 6" S&W Highway Patrolman(no model number under crane) for $325. Was ugly and had horrible grips on it, but was perfect mechanically. Was gone by the time I got the money up.
3.) 6" Taurus 66 for $300. Near perfect finish and excellent trigger pull. Only had some minor spot rusting on the hammer. Same as the Smith above.
4.) 4" Colt Python Stainless for $1000. Was sold as a shooter because of a tiny scratch near the logo. I only had $800 on me at the time....Seller ended up selling it to a guy for $900
