    My first serious trap gun was a Beretta 687 EELL unsingle combo. I loved that gun and shot it for a long time but never could shoot the unsingle as well as the o/u barrel so I sold it.If I had it to do over I might have kept that gun just to use the o/u for doubles.

    Yeah, first shotgun I owned back in '56. Was either a Remington 48 or 58 in 16 gauge, all I remember was to remember to twist the end cap to H or L depending on the load. "Had" to pawn it in '61 when I got married and ran out of money. Kicked my butt ever since. HarryC

    I'd like to buy back my Dad's old SxS that he called "Samanthy." But it wasn't sold, it was stolen from my Mother's house after Dad passed away. It wasn't anything special, just an old hardware gun marked "Cruso," but I'd love to have it back.

    Shoot well and often,

    Mark.

    Back in 1970 I sold my Pigeon Grade Model 12 trap. It had some gorgeous wood. However I needed the money to buy a pickup truck. The pickup truck has found a home in the junk yard a long time ago and the Model 12 is probably in somebodys gun safe. Smart move huh? Ed

    Now that I'm thinking about it I would have to say probably not ... Whenever I have traded or sold a gun I usually got a nicer one to replace it or not at all depending on the situation ... Cars and woman are about the same way to my way of thinking and in my opinion ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    it would be a tossup between the Winchester Model 21 or my Shiloh Sharps Long Range Express No.1 Rifle that I sold in'05...The "21" would probably win out becuase I used it more.

    There are a whole lot I would buy back, but the one I miss most is a Browning BT99 Plus Stainless.

    I really shot that better than the more expensive guns I have now.

    My Bearcat, I bought it for $49.50 and let it go for $20 - I was only 16 at the time. My only consolation was that it was well used.

    Back in the mid 60s in Oregon I bought one of the first Remington 700 ADL in 7mm Remington Magnum, and put a Lyman All-American 4x scope on it. In the mid 70s I was living in SW Michigan, where only shotguns and muzzleloaders were legal for firearm deer hunting. I thought I would have no use for the 7mm, and sold it plus a set of RCBS dies for $200. Ever since I moved to Idaho in the mid 80s I've regretted selling the gun. It was very accurate and shot quite flat, serial number 169608. Wish i still had it.
