    mine was a colt 1911 built by bob day for the air force shooting team..finish wise it looked a little rough but it was the most accurate and "comfortable" 1911 i ever shot

    I sold it for almost 3 times what I paid for it new so I could buy another gun and I have missed it ever since.
    I keep looking for another one but the ones you do find are trashed - IMO.
    I'll keep looking and hoping that Marlin will start making it again.

    The only one I really regret was my Winchester 101 12ga O/U. I had a pair, a 20 ga (still have) and a 12 ga. I hadn't shoot it in over 20 years and it so I thought I'd sell it to fund another gun I wanted. I did that, but now when I look at the used gun racks, I see much lessor quality guns selling for about what I got for it. I'd buy it back for the same price in a heart beat.

    Mine was a Marlin 336 30-30 I traded for a bow. I got the shaft cause I hate that damn bow. I killed my first deer with that rifle and I have never quit kicking myself for getting rid of it. After I buy a new pistol another 336 is on the list.

    H&K P9S 9mm. Absolutely awesome gun. Innovative cocker/decocking lever, just about the best factory trigger in the world, and accurate as heck. Should have never sold it.

    CETME. I needed cash quick, and figured I would eventually get another, or step up. Then the prices started going up and I never got around to buying one. Now the prices have REALLY gone up and it doesn't look like I'll be getting one any time soon.

    I traded in a Remington 600 in .244 Rem, on a 700 BDL. I didn't like the gun because it wouldn't shoot very well but the books don't even show that model to have been chambered in 244. Remington renamed it to 6mm and changed the twist to shoot heavier bullets. Had I known then what I know now, I would have kept it and made a bundle from selling it now.

    My dad just traded a .244 Rem 600 for a model 700 in .223 and to the op I will always miss my first shotgun a Remington 870 wingmaster but traded it for my 101 so I can't complain.
