    Model 12 trap blueing as black as shoe polish,blonde anton wood,fixed full,would ink targets from the back fence. Was in my eairly 20's 1973- 1975. Paid $350 for it. If I could find that gun today, I give $3000 for it. I would know it was mine as my initals are engraved on the trigger guard. Wayne

    Had a Perazzi single about 35 years ago that broke targets no matter where you pointed the gun, you didn't even have to be close. Comeon home baby, all is forgiven ;-))

    Well, it ain't a trap gun. But I sold a S&W M-625 stainless .45 ACP revolver with a 3" barrel. They were a plentiful at one time. Now try to find one.

    Model 12 Pigeon Grade trap. It had wood on it that was just beautiful. (Factory wood) But being young and foolish I sold it back in 1970 so I could buy a pickup truck. That was smart. Now the pickup is probably in some salvage yard and the gun is in some proud owners gun cabinet! Ed

    I have only ever sold one gun since I have had any and I've regreted it since, not that it was that special or anything just wish I still had it. Since then I told myself that I would never sell or trade off any other gun. Therefore I won't have that problem again. They aren't costing you any money sittin in the closet or the safe, so why get rid of them and risk regretting it later.

    I have never sold any gun that functioned well. Thus, I am immune from such laments. Gonna need a bigger safe soon though.

    A built-up Model 12 trap gun. A real "money" gun. A dime would fall through the barrel and that was 31 inches long, but I would smoke them from anywhere you wanted to back up to. Never did know exactly what I had as it was prior owned. It was getting pretty loose and I sold it. Should have had the action rebuilt.

    I had a DB81 O/U and I loved the high rib as it was just like my TMX. That gun must have been designed as a live bird gun because the bottom barrel shot just right but the top barrel shot low and I couldn't hit the 2nd with it. I got rid of the DB81 but I always wondered if I should have sent it to a real barrelsmith to fix the POI on the top barrel. I have rationalized that the POI was too far off for anyone to fix.

    Model 86 winchester - musket model. Needed the money. On the other hand, it was just a "safe queen" and not many folks knew I had one. It is not like having a gull wing mercedes where you can at least take it out for a spin. when it comes to collectable firearms, not many people know what they are looking at anyway. So just as well the gun is gone. But if I sold that same gun today - I would really clean up.
