Colt Agent Light Weight .38, Parkerized, shrouded ejection rod, removable factory hammer shroud.
Back then, I had to sell a gun to be able to afford a different one.
What a shame.:(

Calico Liberty I 9mm carbine with the collapsible stock and 100-round magazine. I bought it in the mid-90s and sold it to a friend a few years later on the condition he'd give me the chance to buy it back if he ever decided to sell. MFer ended up selling it without letting me know.

Colt Gold Cup National Match .38 Special Wadcutter….only gun I ever regretted selling although I rarely ever sell any of my guns. That was 20 years ago and I’m still crying!
Still have mine. You know those are fairly rare guns. Made only for about 6 months, they were each hand-fitted by a craftsman at Colt. They shot only .38 Spl midrange wad cutters. They were meant to be competition to S&W’s Model 52 (which I also have). They came in a number of barrel length configurations. A long slide is really rare. They are the only real 1911’s that I’ve ever seen that are blow-back in design, with groves in the chamber to hold the expanded case until pressures dropped enough to make the case retract. As such, the barrel/slide relationship never changed.

Which 1 gun do you regret ever selling. For me it is a SW 629 Classic Hunter. Unfluted cylinder, 6” barrel.. it was a sweet shooter. Due to life issues I had to sell it.. I’ll likely never buy another as I have since bought an Anaconda. But it was one gun I wish I still had.

Pictures found on the internet.

I had the exact same revolver. It was a great gun. I could no longer deal with the recoil after dislocating my thumb twice, so I sold it. I now stick to .45 acp, .40 S&W and 9mm.

A 1903 A3. I will regret to the day I die selling that gun. My father bought it in 1961 through mail order from a listing in the back of the NRA Rifleman magazine. It was a new gun from U.S. Military surplus.

I have two I regret selling. One was a S&W Combat Masterpieece with target hammer and trigger I bought new in the 60’s. The other (surprisingly) was a Gen 1 Glock G17 with the original light trigger.

It's probably my first Sig - a P228. I always had problems with my thumb and the slide lock, so I finally sold it. It wasn't until I joined here that I learned about the Legion controls that solved my problem! So I ended up buying another P228 (although this one was worked on by the Sig Armorer1) to fill in my collection. It cost me a couple of hundred bucks to get right back to where I started with my very first handgun purchase!
Also a 1992 228. At 82 arthritis caught up to me so I gave it to my son-in-law./ I don't regret doing so but I miss having it.

It was a beautiful gun and I know very rare. Today it would be worth about 5 times what I sold it for. I rarely shot it because it was pristine and was always afraid of messing it up……that was the main reason I sold it; it was a safe queen
