Browning M-65 ... in Bee of course. I know I could easily find another but there's too much else on the list now. Perhaps one day I'll run into one that says Winchester and lacks the "Made in Japan" roll mark.

1911 Commercial Colt Super 38 (manufactured 1951) that someone accurized and added target sights to. That gun could shoot the heck out of Walmart Winchester white box ammo with the original barrel. Got in a tight spot and it went to pay bills.

All of them. :D Seriously the one I really want back is the Model 75 Winchester target rifle with Redfield sights and sling that I got new for Christmas 1957 when I was in the 8th. grade. I sold it along with a few other guns to raise money to move to Virginia.

I had to sell my 760 BDL in .308 when I was laid off work in 2008. But I rec'd a great price for it - $600. including the 2-7X scope.

About 40 years ago I bought a Winchester model 770 that was originally chambered in 222 Remington that someone had re chambered to 222 Remington Magnum and boy was it accurate. I foolishly traded it for something else.

I had a nickel plate Model 10 that "supposedly" belonged to a Police Chief from Compton, CA (I grew up in Compton) and I traded it away for a 10-22. I think this took place in '70 or '71. Don't/didn't care about previous owners, I'd just like to have an S&W Model 10...

There's been a bunch of them. I've been thinking about a pair of East German Makarovs that I bought when they first appeared in the early '90s I think. I sold them quite some time ago when they started getting a little pricey. I was able to partially correct that today. Picked up a very nice '62 dated one today a small gun show. Very pleased with it. On to replace a few more! 8)

Oh man..... where do I start? My 1976 Remington m-1100 I bought when I was 12 years old with my own money. Then there was the early 70's Marlin M 336 in .35 Rem. Oh, and then I sold a beautiful Winchester M-70 in 7mm Magnum that I believe was the most accurate rifle I have ever owned. I live in Florida, I thought I didn't really need it. Jeez.... I don't know what I was thinking....I can't go on......

I'm planning on drastically thinning the herd, but the Single Six with both cyls will never be one of them.

In truth, I regret not having bought more than I sold. Here are the ones that should have been kept:
SIG P226 West German 80s era
Remington 870 Magnum
H&R Topper 410--not much of a shotgun at all but it was my own first gun EVER given to me by my uncle at the ripe old age of 6 yrs. When I got bigger he "traded it away" for a used Stevens 20 gauge that I never really liked. But when you're getting gifts, you don't get to call the shots!
