    We shooters and gun enthusiasts are a funny bunch...and most of us have switched many a time. What's some of the nice ones that you have let go that you liked. Trap or otherwise. puablo

    My Model 21.....bought it as an unshootable broken basket case in 1978...restocked it in some decent English Walnut and had the old Winchester Custom Shop rebuild it. Shot some clay target games with it and then sold it 3 years ago when the cash supply was getting a wee bit thin...and a Winchester 101 broadway that was my first doubles gun...

    A CARM16 with a serial number under 5000 and the original full-auto bolt, a BM59 made by Baretta, A 50 cal double rifle I figured I didn't need. Stupid, just plain stupid.

    A Remington Model 10-A with bottom ejection. A serial number lookup determined that it was produced in 1918, so I called it my Victory Gun. A previous owner had put a PolyChoke on it, so it shot skeet and trap equally well and the hulls always landed at my feet.

    R/s,

    A pair of Bob Munden Colt SAA's with custom grips. Slickest pair of six guns I have ever owned.

    A Ljutic Selka stocked in exhibition grade english walnut. A real head turner and great fun to shoot.

    Marlin 39-A. Bought when I was 18, sold it a few years later. Wish I still had it! Anyone got one they'd like to sell?

    I wish I still had my S&W stainless 625 .45 ACP revolver with a 3" barrel. They were plentiful at one time. Then S&W discontinued them and only made the 5" version.<br>
    <br>
    A S&W Model 58 in 41 Mag that had target grips, target hammer and target trigger. That's rare.<br>
    <br>
    A second year S&W Model 29 44 Mag.<br>
    <br>
    An Artillery Luger with stock.<br>
    <br>
    Three Remington Model 53 .22 Jets.<br>
    <br>
    An accurate S&W Model 48 in .22 WMRF. Rare because it was accurate.<br>
    <br>
    A mint 1927 Argentine Colt (1911) made in Hartford.<br>
    <br>
    A second year production Winchester 1886 lever action rifle in 45-90.<br>
    <br>
    A Colt AR15 in 9mm with a mountain of 32-round magazines.<br>
    <br>
    A S&W Model 28 Highway Patrolman with a 6" barrel. Not rare, but what a useful gun. I'd like another, but the prices have gone stupid on these.<br>
    <br>
    And that's just the ones I really miss. I've probably sold or traded off more guns than most people will own in their lifetime. At one time it was my goal to own a model of every N frame S&W ever made, and I came damn close to it. I was lacking only some of the early guns like the 38-44 Heavy Duty and oddities like the Texas Wagon Train 44-40. Lost interest in S&W after they backstabbed us and got rid of many of them.

    Mostly every one I ever owned. 3-4 Krieghoffs, 4-5 Perazzis, 1-Silver Seitz and of course 4 Kolars. Many Colts, Smiths and a hord of model 12s. I'm sure I'm missing a bunch.

    Mint Weatherby Mark XXII semi-auto. Pretty gun.

    S&W 29 44mag. Sold it after seeing a new S&W bulge its cylinder on the first box of cartridges. Thankfully I kept my trusty Chief's Special, though.

    My beat-up childhood 410 Wingmaster. Did a lot of hunting with it. Cost $104 new and I'd pay $500 to get that exact one back.

    A winchester 94 XTR Big Bore in 375 winchester

    A Remington 870 TC made in 1966

    An early S&W Model 29 .44 Mag, one particular Model 12 Trap, a nice S&W Chief's Special with a 3" barrel... kinda miss these three. Oh, and a Ruger Security Six (I know, sort of a workhorse among Thoroughbreds) that was the most accurate .357 I've ever shot. Gotta miss the accurate ones.

    My first 810 richland o/u 10ga. The Remiongton 1100 with a Hastings High rib and Jack west stock I sold to a guy here on trapshooters. Two guns that shot so well I shouldn't have ever sold them. As I recall both things seemed like the thing to do at the time...... Jeff
