    hello:
    have you ever traded or sold a gun that you wish you would have kept? i once owned a pre 64 model 12 trap gun that fit me like a glove. sometimes when i pulled the trigger, i felt i would miss the target, and believe it or not, it still smoked the target to my amazement. i know the guy who has it, i offered him alot more money for it then he paid and he refuses to sell it. it sits and sits in a closet of his. i think he does it to me on purpose. what gun do you wish you could get back and can't for some reason or another?

    Yes. Old S&W M&P 5" blue 5 screw with S&W certification letter authenticating it was made in 1951 and originally shipped to a dealer in Florida. It was serial number 186212. Simply the smoothest, most accurate .38 I ever had.

    I would pick it today, over a wondernine because of how fast and accurately I could place shots. If that gun is still out there, in the condition I sold it in, I would pay $500 to get it back. I bought it and sold it without a box.

    Also, a S&W Model 17 K-22 target masterpiece serial # 10K8924, formerly owned by my late father. The first revolver I trained on when I was a teenager.

    Awesome .22. Love to get that one back, too.

    The usual stuff....Model 12 trap, WS-1 Model 410 skeet. But the one gun I shot so well and for some reason just never kicked. I have shot lot's and lot's of guns but nothing like this one gun. Browning Grade 2 32" O/U Trap. Had very "blue" finish and outstanding wood. I have no need for that gun, but would buy it back,"Just Because". Jim

    P.S. I think I sold that thing to Butch Watson. Hey Butch were are you?

    Like Ajax, all of them; M.70, pre-64, 7mm Rem. Mag. inexpensively customized by a blossoming smith as a practice and show piece; another pre 64 M.70 completely customized in .257 Ackley Imp.; 1928 M.12 Trap #544205; S&W M.586, 6", fine tuned to perfection; Fortunately, I've hung onto the Gov't Model, series 70 .45, the Winchester M.61 and 62, the Walther PPK, my trap Kguns, and a few other jewels. Better start looking for a broker to handle them when the inevitable approaches.....Bob Dodd
