    I sold one 2 years ago and I regret it to this day. I want to buy another but but I can't even find one and they are $150 more than what I paid 2 years ago. :wtc:

    what'd you sell? depending on what it was, a $150 increase might not be terrible :dunno:

    Regret isn't quite the right word, but I would like to get another USP45.

    Yeah, I can't bring myself to sell any of the guns I own. All of them have a special place in my heart and I just knowI'll regret it. Basically they're worth more to me to keep than the money I would get from them... Maybe I've just been fortunate to never be broke enough, haha.

    The only gun I sold was a Glock 21 but that was because the Glock 21 SF I bought fit my hand better.

    i have this bad habit of getting rid of things i don't use, and sadly some victims were guns... 7 of them... i wish i still had them, even though they were not that special.

    Don't plan on it. Although, if my wife didn't have the sentimental attachment to her .357 that thing would be out the door.

    Never sell a gun. Guns only go up in price and down in supply, thanks to our politicians.

    I regret selling only a few, many more I'm glad I sold. Regrets are a couple AK's preban Maadi, milled bulgie, garand, and my first handgun I ever bought ppk and I guess my G21.

    Oh I regret selling my Yugo SKS's too but only cause now I could of got 3 times what I sold them for.

    Shit. Guns are something I see as tools, I'd sell any that I don't anticipate maybe using.

    I will never part with my glock, and until I find something better, I'll keep my Mosin. Apart from those two, no attachments... and me, I don't really see the whole "never sell one" mentality as practical. I realize that a gun is a good financial investment insofar as they don't ever really lose value (assuming decent condition, demand, etc) but what is the good of a financial worth if you never sell?

    The only gun I've sold was my CMMG bargain bin AR to finance my current self-built AR. Now I realize I should have kept it and made it into a lightweight build as my current AR is a tad on the heavy side and it would have been nice to have both. :hs:

    I feel you man. I wish I still had my AR that I sold for $550 a year and half ago.
