    What I mean is this -- my first large-bore autopistol was a Ruger P345. I absolutely loved the thing, shot it a lot, and got to be pretty good with it. Needing to generate some funds to buy another gun that I had acquired a case of "the hots" for, I sold it to a coworker.

    I have sorely missed that Ruger .45! I'm now about to the point of buying another P345 to satisfy this "ache" that I've been experiencing. Just wondered whether there are other folks out there who have done something similar to this? Thanks!

    Oh yes and sadly more than once.
    It happens when you have a bigger appetite than funds to feed it.
    I'm there now over my Marlin Camp9
    To get another one I would have to spend more for it today than when I fist bought it.
    So now I'm think Hi Point 9mm carbine.
    Same thing with the Ruger 30 carbine pistols I use to own.
    Try and get one today and it will cost 3x what it did in 1981 when I bought my first one and 2x what it cost when I bought me second one in 1994
    Dam I hate myself some times! LOL!!!

    Growing up out in San Angelo I bought 3 or 4 Lugers, for around $40, shot them a few times, got broke and sold them, Did the same with a clean Winchester .30 US Carbine, could kick myself..

    Yep, I've "gone back". I regret selling pretty much every single gun I've ever sold. My second gun was a used, older Sig P220, and thankfully I still have it. It's been the most reliable gun I've ever owned, and time and time again I keep coming back to it because it just plain works all the time. ;)

    Back in the day, I traded, sold, swapped firearm after firearm.

    Since 1998 I have sold a total of six (6) firearms, three (3) to peace officers and three (3) to others.

    The last one I sold was in 2004 to a friend, that really wanted the 32 ACP, NAA Guardian I had. I have a 32 ACP Beretta Tomcat that shoots better, otherwise I would not have sold it, even though it was at a slight profit.

    Now I will not sell a firearm without great thought and regret, as I do not buy a firearm without really wanting it.

    I really wish I had about 50 of the 70 guns I have had pass though my hands in the last 30 years.

    I've bought like (6) Glock 22's...I keep thinking I don't need it but then I get another one. I haven't had one in 2 years...and I almost bought another one a few months ago...but holding out. It was my first love!
