I can't count how many posts the last year that end in"boy,I wish I never sold/traded that gun":whistle:

I'm happy with every one I got...my crossman .177 barrel flys out once in a while...but I'll fix that.:rof2:

Ya ever really,really regret buying one?

I once, in my irresponsible tween years, bought a Jennings .25 auto. It was and probably still is the Yugo of handguns.
It was a stretch to call the thing a firearm. Occasionally it was a firearm. I gave it to a brother-in-law I don't like.

No, I don't regret much of anything, well one thing but that's another story. I figure everything is a learning experience or a memory and even the bad ones are worth having.

I always thought the Hi Point brand was a give away for a USA made hand gun, They do have life time warranty. So far I have been able to resist the low price.



Maybe someday who knows-Then they are so ugly and heavy-better stop.


:D

I don't regret any gun purchases, but I regret having to trade off guns for the next one I wanted due to low funds.

I've never regretted a gun purchase and I've never sold a gun so no regrets that way either.

I bought a Jennings 9mm, it would jam every two or three rounds, and occasionally come apart. That gun taught me a very valuable lesson in firearms, you get what you pay for. I traded it back to the shop I bought it from for a beat-up M44 Mosin-nagant that I gave to a friend for Christmas. The only other gun I regret buying was a Taurus snub-nose .357, felt like getting hit in the hand with a bat.

I new to many people to complain about the guns they wish they never sold/traded. So I always do my best to hold on to everygun, unless I hate it for some reason. that said, I havent bought very many guns yet, and have never regretted a single one so far, but I tend to over think things which leaves less room for buyers remorse since I have time to change my mind before buying.

Like Razorbuck said... I was afraid if I threw it, half would go to one side, and half to the other!
Wasn't even heavy enough to use as trot line weight.:rof2:

I have had a couple I would like to have back so I could sell them again. :D

Sold an unfired 2nd Generation Colt SAA in 38-40 twenty five years ago. It paid for our wedding and honeymoon. Turned a Shiloh Sharps into a truck one time...

Found this piece of @*+#%! in my Mother in laws dresser drawer. She had bought it for $20 many many years ago. It has probably been shot two or maybe three times. It is a Clerke 1st Mfg by CLERKE TECHNICORP Santa Monica California. Shoots .22 L.R. and is basically made of pot metal coated with chrome and has a metal sleeve in the barrel that actually has some rifling. I might throw this one in the truck for....what ever. I can't for the life of me understand why companies make such crap.
