    If you're like me selling a firearm is a near-traumatic event (only a slight exaggeration there) and is rarely done except under exteme duress or temptation. My personal collection before I moved to the U.S. was well over 100 firearms and included some real gems such as a H&R US Rifle M14, Johnson 1941, SVT40, Ljungman AG42B, a couple of Garands, an MG08, a museum grade Mk1 Webley revolver, M1888 Trap Door Springfield, a John Inglis Bren MkI mg complete with the crazy rare dovetail for the even rarer Plessey Fixed-Line Sight which I had....the list goes on. I contacted the BAT&F (there was no "E" then) about importing my collection to the U.S. but when they heard what I had they started dicking me around even to the point of lying to me about the process. I had 90 days from the time I got my visa to the time I had to be in the U.S. so most of my collection went for fire sale prices. Would I do it again for the opportunity to move to the U.S.? HELL YES! I just might have snuck some of the cooler stuff over the border and buried them just south of the Canadian border in the mountains of Montana which would have been ridiculously easy to do. Unfortunately I'm too much of a law-abiding citizen to have done that. Thanks for letting me commiserate on this subject.

    I regret selling almost every gun I have sold. Very few I would buy again though.

    I have replaced a few that I traded in a once in a lifetime type deal.

    I used to get emotionally attached to "stuff". Namely cars and guns.

    But then I realized they made more than one.

    You nailed it! I would like to have back a Beretta, 3 Rugers, and a Browning. However, I wouldn't go and repurchase them.
